Where You'll Stay


London | Paris | Monaco | Lake Como | Venice | Sölden

I like what you’ve done with the place” – Moneypenny, Spectre (2015)

Across six glamorous decades, 007 has enjoyed the comfort of the world’s most illustrious hotels. Fittingly, the hotels we’ve chosen for The Assignment have been selected for their resonance with the world of James Bond. Elegant, prestigious, evocative – from London’s Whitehall to the peaks of the Austrian Alps.

Corinthia London

Short of strolling through the studded leather door to M’s office, this is about as close as you can get to Bond’s inner sanctum. The lavishly renovated, landmark Ministry of Defence property sits between Whitehall, Trafalgar Square and the “golden thread” of the Thames (as Churchill put it). It’s the perfect base for exploring 007’s city, but also offers private studios for a range of custom Bond experiences in the comfort of your own home from home.

Hôtel de Crillon – A Rosewood Hotel

Located in the theatrical Place de la Concorde, beside the American Embassy and just around the corner from the British Embassy, this restored 18th century palace puts you at the heart of the intrigue. Its ornate structure was originally built for Louis XV, and the polished stone and pilasters evoke the grandeur of three elegant châteaux surrounding Paris, at which Thunderball (1965), Moonraker (1979) and A View To A Kill were filmed (1985).

Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo

When Bond drove up to the Casino de Monte-Carlo in his Silver Birch Aston Martin in the opening scenes of GoldenEye (1995), he might almost have turned left to the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, so fitting is its elegance and glamour. The herringbone-brick driveway, revealing its jasmine and orchid trees, is but a foretaste. Bond is never one to restrain his food and drink choices and would be right at home in the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant.

Lake Como
Villa Passalacqua

Here’s a property eminently positioned to recreate the two experiences Bond had on Lake Como: rest and recuperation (as at Villa del Balbianello), and the tenser action at Mr White’s residence (at Villa La Gaeta, further up the lakeshore). Villa Passalacqua’s spectacular terraced gardens spill down to a gorgeous waterfront, and there’s a private jetty accessible by hidden underground tunnel. For when duty calls.

Hotel Cipriani, A Belmond Hotel

“It’s hard to make Venice look anything other than beautiful,” said Lewis Gilbert, director of Moonraker (1979). Nowhere is this truer than the view from the legendary Cipriani back across the lagoon to the Doge’s Palace. These waters took on a darker hue in Casino Royale (2006) as Bond grappled with the shadowy forces of Le Chiffre. Rest assured, the hidden gardens, Olympic-size saltwater pool and private water taxi to the heart of the city will keep your stay tranquil.

Das Central

Bond’s love affair with the Alps, so evocatively depicted in adventures from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) to Spectre (2015), harks back to On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969) – where Bond infiltrated Blofeld’s vertiginous mountain lair. Five-star Das Central captures the essence of this alpine amour – with 007 ELEMENTS, just a 10-minute walk and connecting ski lift away.
