“Great Location, Terrible Service and Food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

I asked for an iron and had to remind them 3 times but they still forgot.
The breakfast was late so I missed it as I had to get to a meeting.
I had to send my dinner back one night and was consistently sick afterwards.
The rooms were also terribly noisy, not idea to stay if you're in Paris for business.

Dear Madam,
Guests comments, be it positive or not, are one of the best way to our daily improvement; guests comfort & satisfaction being our main priority, and we pay a great attention to your comments.
We do our best to respond quickly to customer requests. Following a high demand for iron, we were not able to provide you one as fastest as you wished. Sorry that this delay has not been explained when you called the front desk. We decided to increase our number of iron so that such inconvenience will not happen again.
Sorry that "Blanquette de Veau" was not your taste. We have immediately proposed (without any additional charge) to change it for a "Choux Farci" that you enjoyed the previous night. Goodwill gesture that you appreciated on site.
The buffet breakfast is served every morning from 6:30 to 10:30. It is also available in room till noon. We always do our best to deliver it on time (as mentioned a time slot of +/- 15 minutes can be expected).
We feel sorry that Duminy-Vendôme experience did not match with your expectation and we sincerely hope that you will come back to the Hotel Duminy-Vendôme.
Best regards,

Yannick A.
Deputy Manager

Clean, great staff, excellent breakfast, and the best location you can imagine. We tend to seek 4 stars when our sightseeing agenda is packed. The Duminy Vendome ticked all the boxes, and we saved a bundle.

Hôtel Duminy Vendôme is an lovely hotel. Beautiful location with an excellent and wonderful staff !!! They are so warm and accommodating, Special mention to Sunera who checked us in expeditiously, Vivien for recommending our day trips and Elisabeth for checking us out immediately and taking care of our luggages. The hotel is strategically located near the Tuileries metro station and is walking distance to the Louvre, the Siene River, the Place Vendôme and other Paris attractions. We will definitely stay in this hotel again next year !!!

Our de luxe room was situated at the back of the hotel on the third floor. It was spacious and quiet. Bed was large and very comfortable. Breakfasts were very good. Staff were friendly and spoke good English. The location of the hotel was excellent. 5 minutes walk to both the Louvre and Place de la Concorde and 3 minutes to Place Vendome and Pierre Herme chocolatier for wonderful macaroons and chocolates!!!!! A lovely touch apart from having tea and coffee in our room, was the complimentary tea and coffee served to hotel guests during the day in the small lounge/bar area- most welcome on returning to the hotel after sightseeing and shopping. We can certainly recommend the Duminy Vendome.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe room if you want more space.

Dear Margaret,
Thank you very much for your comments about your recent stay at the Duminy Vendôme.
As you mentioned one of the many benefits of staying in a Deluxe room is the extra space and larger bed size.
Our front desk team is always at your disposal for any questions regarding public transportation, sightseeing, shopping and of course places where you can find what Paris is well known for: French food delicacies.
We are happy to read that you enjoyed our complimentary tea and coffee which is available every day from 10 am to 5 pm at our bar.
We look forward to welcoming you on your next trip to Paris.
Best regards,
Ida C.

We stayed for 7 nights. The location can't be beat for convenience to both the metro, shopping, Louvre,, did I say shopping!! The staff spoke English and were very helpful. Breakfast was more than satisfying. The breakfast room is in the basement but you'd never guess it. It is beautifully done with a barrel ceiling and tiles. Old world and modern at the same time. We stayed in a deluxe room which was larger than the standard. A few extra feet between the bed and desk and a larger bathroom with good counter space.The room faced the street and was on the first floor. (2nd floor for Americans). No noise issues despite a bar next door. Heard some laughter and good byes briefly but not an issue. Slept beautifully. Slept with AC on. Windows opened to beautiful wrought iron work and gorgeous geraniums! Fun to take in the street scene early in the morning. Locals going to work etc. All in all a great spot and a good value for Paris. Have stayed in more expensive places but will return to the Duminy Vendome!!

Dear Sir,
Thank you very much for your comments about your recent stay at the Duminy Vendôme.
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay in our hotel and benefited from its central location
As you mentioned our Deluxe rooms offer more space than the standard room that is why we keep advising to reserve that room type especially for long stays.
Our breakfast room is one of the highlight of our hotel, we are glad you liked the decoration.
We look forward to welcoming you on your next trip to Paris.

This hotel is great is you are in Paris to see...Paris. The rooms are quite small and the whole footprint of space in the building quite tightly planned, but this is overcome by location and good service. The morning breakfast is more than adequate and the staff acquits themselves well of any typical requests, and are multilingual friendly. Ideal for sightseeing, business, or "location-is-everything" mentalities. Not ideal if you need to spread out 4 suitcases and/or have kids.

We are happy to hear that you had a lovely stay with us and that you could enjoy visiting Paris.
The hotel is centrally located close to restaurants, museums, gardens, metro, Champs Elysees Avenue, shopping… and it is why we set a large breakfasts choice (pastries, meets, eggs, yogurts, fruits…), in order for our guests to have a good start for their busy days in Paris.

We stayed here for our honeymoon. They gave us a beautiful, big room and all the staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. We loved the character of the building. The location was great and close so much of what Paris has to offer. I found the price reasonable compared to other options in the same area. I highly recommend staying here.
