Boutique hotel with an exquisite interior, Hotel Le Ballu stands for expert service and cosmopolitan chic
Situated a walking distance from Opera Metro Station, the boutique hotel sits in the heart of the artsy Montmartre district with the Sacré Cœur Basilica towering over it, boasting one of the most popular postcard views of Paris.
Hotel Le Ballu has been conceived and created by Thomas and Julia Vidalenc, who also designed it, inspired by the location, its artistic vibe and the fictional state of Syldavia, from Herge’s Tintin. Bear in mind that it is this same creative impulse that drives the hotel’s restaurant chefs to make their delectable dishes a true work of art, representing the promise of another bright and eventful day in Paris.
Featuring spacious rooms, the hotel showcases authentic Central European furniture from the 1960s and 1970s and thus could be a backdrop for one of Roman Polanski’s movies if in black & white.
In actuality, the warm palette of the hotel’s interior gives it a cosy aspect. While a snug green terrace, 24/7 room service and its restaurant, along with a sauna, pool, and a pronounced penchant for eco-sustainability make it one of the most desired boutique hotels to relax in Paris with a book, and a bottle of Bordeaux.
