While in Paris for the Fashion Week the other month, I had a very cool proposition: go visit one of Christian Lacroix hotel!! “Visiting” the hotel means that I was able to sneak inside all the rooms of the hotel (well.. ok those one that were free that morning) together with the director of the hotel. How fun!
What I discovered was a truly unique place. The whole decor is crazy, beautiful, baroque.. completely Christian Lacroix! It is called the “Bellechasse” and is located on the Left Bank of Paris in the middle of what is called the “Latin Quarter“, one of Paris’s most beautiful place (and yes, dear readers, this is central).
Now I do not remember how much exactly but I remember asking the director about the prices and I was surprised that it was not that high at the end. Also he did mention that, as any hotel, they do have lower seasons where prices sort of drop.. so lovers, fashionistas, Christian Lacroix fans, or who ever, if you are ever looking to stay in a special hotel in Paris once, make sure you check them out.
By the way, I discovered this hotel thanks to “Symboles de France“, an organisation which regroup hotels which have are a bit unique or special, culturally, historically or otherwise (like here, fashion wise really). They have many interesting references and suggested itineraries. If you ever want to try something “authentic” or new in France, go check them out!
