If you like the polished and colorful universe of comics, specially the ligne claire style of drawing (such as Hergé’s and co), well, you’ll like the design of this new hotel that has just been inaugurated in Paris 9th arrondissement: Hotel Le Ballu.
With its vintage style, hotel Le Ballu takes you to an imaginary country, as a nod to Syldavia, the fictional country that is first depicted in King Ottokar’s Sceptre in The Adventures of Tintin.
Inspirations are countless: comics then, as well as architecture from Eastern Europe in the 60’s. Inside, we have 37 bedrooms (5 of them featuring a terrace), on 5 stories including a suite, 3 junior-suites and 1 deluxe.
Le Ballu also enjoys a restaurant managed by chef Michaël Riss who promotes regional and local produces coming from small farmers to serve traditional but creative cuisine.
As for pastry chef Pierre Marie, he serves an inventive dessert list you can enjoy in the afternoon along with teas from all over the world. To savor it, enjoy the lovely and hidden garden fitted with 40 seats.
And if you’re in the moon, Le Ballu also features a swimming pool and a spa in the basement.
