If only walls could speak

… and tell the story of this impressive building. Constructed during the French Revolution, home to a draper’s boutique, then a grand Parisian brasserie with appurtenant cabaret, nowadays it’s a grandiose five star hotel, the Maison Albar Hotels Le VendomeBehind the astonishing exterior designed by renowned 1880s architect Claude David, was an inspiring world welcoming a wealthy and refined clientele with a keen desire for artistic representation. Classified as a historic monument, the signs of past glories are still visible on the façade, which pays tribute to Le Lyon d'Or Brasserie and the splendour of historical town houses.


Both magnificent and rare, Maison Albar Hotels Le Vendome is nestled in the heart of Paris, France, right next to the Opéra Garnier and a few steps from the Place Vendôme. At this prominent 9th arrondissement address, 51 rooms and suites are framed by ancient walls that once housed passing souls and witnessed magnificent events. Today, however, modern comfort and superb quality reign in perfect harmony with historically shaped authenticity. 


Maison Albar Hotels Le Vendome is part of a hospitality concept that respectfully combines luxury with breathtaking history. In each of its luxury hotels, the Albar family sublimates the spirit of the premises by bringing together the best talent including exceptional architects and interior designers, Michelin-starred chefs and wellness experts, to mention a few.

Gold & emerald

To preserve the authentic look and feel of this five star home-from-home, interior designer Fabien Roque from Roque Intérieurs was commissioned. The living space includes unique décor wrapped in a luxurious contemporary style, with golden shades used as a recurring stylistic feature that connects the façade with the interior decoration. In all the rooms, the cocktail bar leading onto the Eden garden, the relaxation area with its’ luxurious spa, the indoor swimming pool and fitness centre, gold manifests as the iconic colour bringing the architecture and interior décor together. For instance, in the lobby through golden furniture with harmonious lines and sculptural lamps.


Emerald green is a secondary connecting colour featured in sumptuous velvet fabrics that add warmth and softness to the marble surfaces specified as a recurring favourite material. Altogether, the décor brings a stylish touch of modernity while preserving the natural luxury of the premises. Elegant and luminous, each detail enhances brilliance and delicacy. Depending on room type, all of the carefully selected items beautifully combine with unique street views of Paris, the spectacular Opéra Garnier or the hotel's private garden.

A tailored carpet selection

Offering a selection of superior rooms, deluxe rooms, suites and the Opéra Suite, the latter designed as a true Parisian apartment, all hotel guests benefit from top-of-the-range amenities. Each room type has been carefully evaluated with regard to usage and demands in order to specify the perfect carpet.
