Dining at this stylish new hotel, situated in the heart of fashionable Paris, rue St Honore, is managed by the charismatic Thierry Marx who offers both a gastronomic restaurant and a trendy bistro. But the hotel itself is also asking to be discovered. Let’s go…!


A stylish hotel


It’s considered good taste to stay just minutes away from the Place Vendome and its precious stones, to make the most of Paris, capital of Haute Couture. This is where Mandarin Oriental, who are present and renowned for their impeccable service in 26 countries, recently inaugurated their hotel: a sophisticated temple of contemporary architecture constructed around an elegant patio.


Top class Gastronomy


Everything has been conceived with ‘oriental’ and ‘spiritual well being’ in mind: a flight of crystal butterflies in the lobby, natural elements and Zen interior design in the bedrooms. Nevertheless, this cosmopolitan hotel still retains a Parisian feel. Therefore double Michelin-starred chef Thierry Marx is not out of place in the hotel kitchens. A true Parisian, from the popular Menilmontant district, Marx serves his decidedly Parisian gastronomic cuisine in a real bistro in the heart of the hotel.

Sublime bedrooms


Let’s be very clear: the prices at the Mandarin Oriental are those of a luxury hotel. But for a very special occasion, this establishment with its magnificent views from the bedrooms, suites or apartments affords an unforgettable experience. Here, silk cushions and embroidered taffetas shimmer in shades of fuchsia, orange or plum in this elegant traditionally Asiatic décor. It’s a dream come true.



Steve, 49 ENTREPRENEUR

Comfortable in working-class neighbourhoods and the tonier areas of Paris, I never get tired of rediscovering this timeless city. The Sex Pistols set the pace when I was younger. New technologies fill my working days now. My little extra: discovering fine eating spots around the capital for romantic dinners!
