Hôtel de Vendôme

Written by Aksel Ritenis


This five-star boutique luxury hotel is an elegant retreat with attentive service, finecuisine and a discreet atmosphere in the centre of the most fashionable district in Paris.Twenty-nine luxuriously appointed guest rooms and suites include ten suites and nineteen guest rooms each individually decorated with antique furniture, noble woods and upholstery manufactured by the finest French craftsmen. Bathrooms feature rare marbles. High ceilings, chandeliers, frescos, oil paintings and windows that open onto spectacular views of the Place Vendôme make for a truly Parisian experience.

The building at number one, the private mansion that houses Hôtel de Vendôme, gives Place Vendôme its name as it is the site of the original Vendôme family’s residence. The residence was built in 1723 and converted into a hotel in 1907.


Hôtel de Vendôme is surrounded by the city’s finest jewellery boutiques and is ideally situated steps away from the Tuileries gardens, Musée du Louvre, National Opera and the stylish rue Saint-Honoré for shopping in city’s premier designer stores. A revolving door entrance leads into an elegant reception area with the intimacy of a private home and the professionalism of a luxury hotel. A winding marble staircase leads up to a comfortable and inviting bar and restaurant with magnificent views of the Place Vendôme from a luxuriously private setting.

The new One Place Vendôme Restaurant launched September food2009 with a sophisticated and elegant design by world-renowned architect and interior designer Michele Bonan that optimises this unique location. Bonan’s other projects include the JK Place Firenze in Florence, JK Place Capri, Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel, and Ferragamo’s Lungarno Hotels in Florence. Head Chef Nicolas Rucheton has created a unique and exquisite seasonal menu using fresh, locally sourced cuisine. The menu benefits from culinary advice and guest visits by Chef Didier Aniés, Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2000, of Restaurant Le Cap (1* Michelin 2010) at the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat.

The bar is an ideal place to enjoy a drink and quiet conversation and serves some of the best cocktails in Paris. The cocktail menu changes each season and is themed around three seasonal fruits carefully blended with fresh herbs. The signature cocktail is “The Vendôme” with raspberries, fresh mint, black pepper and champagne.

Hôtel de Vendôme is an ideal location from which to explore the best that Paris has to offer. Guests benefit from the services of Hôtel de Vendôme’s excellent concierge team to make the most of their stay in the French capital.
