Situated in the heart of the 5th arrondissement, the Hotel les Dames du Panthéon is a veritable ode to femininity, where elegance and history meet in an atmosphere of calm.
This unique establishment has an exceptional view of the Pantheon from its cosy bar and certain rooms, offering guests a peek into the world of the ‘Dames’, whether romantics or courtisans, songwriters or authors – independent, avant-garde intellectuals…
The second floor of the hotel pays homage to the 1950s and Édith Piaf.
With her unforgettable voice, Édith Piaf marked the 1950s, and forever remains one of the most successful French artists, thanks to hit songs like ‘L’Hymne à l’amour’ and ‘La Vie en rose’.
The Hotel les Dames du Panthéon felt it fitting to dedicate a floor to a woman who rose to incredible fame, and whose songs helped forge the reputation of France and Paris around the world.
In charge of renovating the hotel, Valérie Manoïl found her inspiration in the lives of some remarkable, free-thinking, passionate women, designing interiors that are inventive, exotic and delicate.
On this floor, she offers a very retro-chic design. The subtly combined vintage furniture and accessories plunge us into the world of the 1950s, with their sharply-drawn lines, while the furniture adds bright colour.
The era was also marked by the arrival of household appliances and new means of communication. In these rooms, you’ll thus find vintage telephones and radios.
The floor’s six rooms (three Superior, two Classic and one Romantic room) have two different inspirations. One pops with bright colours, while the other is more restrained with lighter colours.
In the rooms, you’ll find wall fabrics by Sanderson, Nobilis and Missoni. The curtains come from Boussac and Lelievre. The wallpaper between the French-style beams is Roomshot Squiggle by Vivienne Westwood for Cole & Son.
These fabrics and wallpapers are in harmony with the joyous, outgoing personality of the famous Parisian singer.
With the hotel overlooking one of the city’s most majestic monuments, the interior designer has decided to allow guests to discovers the famous ‘raffinement français‘.
