Let’s visit the Balthazar Hotel ***** ? Allison and I were lucky to spend some quality time there during our stay at Rennes. The welcoming, the decoration and services seduce us!
In order to know more about this amazing place, we have asked some questions to the hotel’s staff. What we already knew was that this hotel belongs to the MGallery collection from the Accor group, and therefore that it would be unique and with a certain charm. The Balthazar hotel from Rennes is fully decorated by the owner Madam Céline Meslin who, as you can see in pictures, has an amazing taste ! We think that she has truly succeeded in recreating the “just like home” universe, while adding modern and design objects and details. By the way, we have been told that some objects in the hotel really belonged to Madame Céline Meslin, like the native paintings for instance. We can feel the owner’s soul in the hotel, and this one is pretty
Our favorite detail ? The library on the walls with no doubt ! It is surrounding the lobby and it’s not only holding books; we can also find objects, masterpieces… A cocktail bar, a Nuxe Spa, a cool lobby, a chic and modern patio, a sport room, a starred restaurant (the head chef id Michel Rostang)… the Balthazar hotel is self-sufficient because there are enough things to do for a whole stay ! By the way at night and during the weekend, the hotel bar is very trendy and gathers people from outside (well… cocktails are delicious it’s true!).
We have dared to ask a question… “Balthazar”, why this name ? We have been told that it was referring to one of the 3 mages (i.e. the hotel logo) in order to underline the philosophy of this place : to share, and to be generous.
Finally, the Balthazar hotel ***** is a great place with 53 rooms in 5 levels : the classic rooms, the superior rooms, the deluxe rooms, the junior suites and the 2 sumptuous deluxe suites. The prices are really reasonable as you can see it on the website and even the lowest category is a real masterpiece !
