The Hôtel La Tamise
A unique, private place of one’s own
In the heart of old Paris
Built in the mid-19th century, the property became a hotel in 1878, welcoming guests on the “Grand Tour,” a British bourgeois tradition of traveling to further one’s culture and education. The hotel went on to become a meeting place for the fashion elite, regularly hosting Madame Grès’ models, 1970s superstar Twiggy, and photographer Patrick Demarchelier.
La Tamise is a little-known spot where a select few are regulars. Designed as an intimate, unique, almost private place to stay, the hotel is an endlessly comfortable cocoon. Discreet tranquility and French sophistication coexist with the past, through stained glass, cement tiles, Charles X marquetry, original parquet flooring, large period mirrors, and a subtly modern aesthetic.
In the heart of old Paris, the hotel is located on a quiet street overlooking the Jardin des Tuileries, just a few minutes from the capital’s major museums. With the Louvre, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, the Orangerie, the Jeu de Paume, the Quai Branly, the Palais de Tokyo, and the Palais Galliera, you’ll be spoiled for choice! A stone’s throw from the fashion district and its most renowned names, the hotel has a front-row seat to Parisian life. And as it is just as close to the luxurious Place Vendôme as to the lively Marché Saint-Honoré, you can keep your finger firmly on the pulse of the French capital.
