Hôtel Les Deux Girafes

Whimsy and Laid-back Vibes

The Parisian hotel business is a serious and often stuffy affair, but Hotel Les Deux Girafes spurned tradition to opened its doors in summer 2018 in the Bastille-République district with a whimsical theme and a laidback vibe.

Located in the cool 11th arrondissement, the four-star hotel is housed within the walls of a 19th-century furniture factory completely reimagined and renovated by AR Architecture and interior designer Sandrine Legret. Sleek color-blocked design, minimalist decor, and cherry-picked art dotting the walls throughout the hotel together present a comfortable Copenhagen-style interior and a perfectly chic place to stay that is way better than a home away from home.

Outside the 34 rooms is a lush, green patio and terrace at the center of the hotel with a giant 5-meter emblematic giraffe sculpture, created by the artists of Anathomie. The hotel also hosts a quarterly art exhibit on a 20-meter wall running from the lobby to the bedrooms.

Hotel Les Deux Girafes' answer to the rise of Italian cuisine in the city is Le Beslay, a 62-seat Italian restaurant with chef Antonella Finelli at the helm of its refined gastronomic menu. Order the duck as a main course and it's impossible to be disappointed, and make sure to try one of their divine cocktails at the bar. As an additional option, the restaurant also offers a Sunday brunch buffet for 29 euros.
