Hotel Beauchamps bedroomSusan and I were recent guests of this trendy property on rue de Ponthieu just a block behind the Champs-Élysées.  Knowing that city hotels in Europe are not like our hotels in the USA, we had no idea what to expect, but our hosts assured us the hotel was newly renovated and they were eager to have us tell our readers about their little dream property in Paris. If you have ever stayed at a W Hotel,  you will love The Beauchamp. Our rooms were modest in size but very well appointed and smartly decorated. The air conditioning was always working, the flat screen Television visible from anywhere in the room, and there was ample space for clothing.  Our rooms had all the comfort and amenities necessary for a great stay.

As Susan and I headed up to the rooms, we were pleasantly surprised to see tall operable windows and bathrooms with plenty of space for all the toiletries, and a towel warmer.  The tub and shower was ultra modern and worked like a charm – hot, hot water!  Nevertheless, it was not until our return that evening that we fully understand the comfort of the Beauchamp Hotel. Awaiting us was bottled water and a bed SO comfortable that you sank immediately into sleep. As soon as my head it the pillow, I was fast into dreamland. I knew waking up in the morning I wouldn’t want to depart the unparalleled comfort of that bed!

Hotel Beauchamps breakfast buffetOur breakfast was included with the room, and we found the restaurant to be charming and the food was both plentiful and delicious. Our server was equally welcoming and engaged in conversation immediately. Hotel Beauchamps Paris RestaurantThe buffet has an artful display of croissants, breads, cheeses, fruits, eggs, meats, yogurts, etc. and fresh squeezed orange juice. The best part of Paris are the breads and cheeses and those were delicious. The dinner menu looked terrific and very reasonably priced as well.

Location is everything, and The Beauchamp Hotel is located near brasseries, cafes and plenty of nightlife.   (Sometimes a bit too much nightlife…. but after all it was the World Cup.)  You could easily wander out the door of the hotel in the evening and find countless opportunities for city nightlife.  We found the location very convenient to buzz in and out of during the day.  Especially after shopping excursions along the Champs-Elysees, it was just a quick detour to drop bundles back at the hotel.

Susan and I loved this hotel, and can highly recommend it for anyone looking for an intimate experience in a fabulous location – the Hotel Beauchamp won’t disappoint.

Additional Tips:

  • If you are a light sleeper, you may want to request a room away from the street.
  • The bathroom tubs are large and deep – a luxury in Europe.  If you have mobility problems the tall sides may give you a challenge.
  • Check Expedia for specially negotiated rates!
