Welcome to this beautiful retro address with a vintage spirit borrowing from the 60's comics and Eastern European architecture. You are in Ballu, in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, between the Place de Clichy and the Place Blanche, 15 minutes walk from the Butte Montmartre. You will be welcomed in French, English or Spanish.
With his hotelier wife Julia Vidalenc, the architect Thomas Vidalenc had fun creating a universe borrowing from the 1960s comic strip and its aesthetic codes, in particular the Sceptre of Ottokar, one of the adventures of Tintin, the famous Belgian reporter. Hidden behind a superb 19th century facade, the hotel has a seductive interior courtyard planted with trees and a wellness area with 1 hour of privatization offered.
On 5 floors, discover 37 plush rooms, 5 of which have terraces, and 2 apartments with bold decor, from Prussian blue to canary yellow, emerald and wine-lime. Depending on the room, you will have the following amenities: king size bed, private bathroom with shower or terrazzo bathtub, nespresso machine, air conditioning and Atelier Cologne hospitality products.
In the neo-bistro atmosphere of the restaurant or in the garden, enjoy a rich sweet and savory breakfast or savor the creative cuisine of Chef Michaël Riss. It is also possible to order in your room. The menu includes roasted miso ginger salmon, lemon penne or a regressive cheeseburger, all washed down with natural wines.
In the heart of the hotel, discover a real jewel case of well-being with a design evoking the Russia of the 60's: a heated indoor swimming pool of 8x2 and a small sauna. We like its subway tiles and its globes suspensions. One hour of privatization is included in the price of the reservation.
About 15 minutes walk from the Sacré-Cœur and 30 minutes from the Louvre Museum, the hotel is ideally located. Here, the signs of Pigalle rub shoulders with family bakeries and trendy restaurants. The Musée de la Vie Romantique is just a few minutes away on foot. It is housed in the Hotel Scheffer-Renan, the former home of the Dutch painter Ary Scheffer and a hotbed of romantic inspiration during the first part of the 19th century.
Le Ballu was selected in 2023 by Pauline and Sébastien, mainly because of the very positive reviews online. We are a duo looking for the best romantic getaways. Enjoy your visit and follow our Instagram if you like this content!
