Hôtel Beauregard, which is housed within an elegant six-storey Haussman building in Paris, opens as hotel group Touriste’s fifth Parisian property. We took a peek inside…

Answering to the success of its sister properties – Hotel Les Deux Gares, Hotel Bienvenue and Hotel Panache – Hôtel Beauregard has opened, sheltering its own style throughout 38 rooms.

Poised in the very authentic and Parisian 15th arrondissement, Hôtel Beauregard sits in an elegant six-storey Haussman building on the crossroads of rue de Vaugirard and rue Cambronne, and frames views out across the Eiffel Tower from the majority of its rooms.

Opening as the latest boutique hotel from Touriste, Hôtel Beauregard has been designed by Chloé Nègre, who describes it as “a hotel I would dream of if I were a tourist travelling to Paris.”

For her second collaboration with Touriste, Nègre has married classic and contemporary influences in Touriste’s signature tongue-in-cheek style – invoking Parisian clichés and nods to the Seventies across the six floors. Elegance and intuition are the hallmarks of the French designer who is known for her intuitive approach to design and decoration. She follows on from Luke Edward Hall’s Les Deux Gares and Dorothée Meilichzon’s Hôtel Panache – both of whom also brought their unique style and spirit to the Touriste properties.

The journey begins in the lobby where, on the ceiling, a fresco by the artist Pauline Leyravaud depicts a trompe-l’oeil sky. The airy bistro-style breakfast room, seating up to 30 guests, can be used throughout the day for enjoying tea and cakes, a glass of wine or as a quiet spot to work. Each of the six floors has its own colour palette, featuring characterful touches such as: tapestries designed by the Pinton factory and grid carpets inspired by French garden trellises. Custom-made floral wall lamps and heart-shaped chairs features in the bedrooms, along with ‘I Love Paris’ crests embroidered onto the headboards. The bathrooms pop with striped walls inspired by artist Daniel Buren’s Minimalist works.

Vintage finds from France make up much of the furnishings, such as a rare chair by architect Mario Botta and an undulating bench inspired by Pierre Paulin in the breakfast room. Textiles are made from recycled or recyclable fibres, bathrooms feature reclaimed taps, and all furnishings have been manufactured in France and Europe. “Taking an environmentally friendly approach has always played an important part of all of Touriste’s projects, but we have made a particular focus for Hôtel Beauregard,” said the designer.

“Our ambition with Touriste has always been to welcome travellers in the greatest possible setting, with hotels designed by the best interior designers at the fairest prices,” added Adrien Gloaguen, Founder of Touriste. “We have been lucky to work with some incredibly talented creatives and we love to see how different designers approach the hotels. They all put their own personal stamp on them, making every project completely unique.”

2023 will also see Touriste add two further properties to their collection – Hôtel de la Boetie designed by Beata Heuman and Hôtel Château d’Eau designed by Necchi Architecture.
