“Great Location In The Heart of Paris”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Stayed at the Hotel Duminy Vendome on a recent stay in Paris. Found the hotel to be very centrally located and within walking distance to most attractions including the Louvre. A plus if you're there to see the sights.
The rooms were a little small which is typical however they were spotless and very comfortable. We were on the third floor so we never heard any street traffic or noise in the mornings or at night. It may be worth requesting a upper level room.
The staff were by far the friendliest folks we met while in Paris and they were most helpful with recommendations throughout our stay. I can not say enough good things about the employees.
We found the restaurant's breakfast to be very nice. Nothing fancy, however it included fresh fruit, pastries, eggs, meats, breads and your typical breakfast foods.
We would definitely stay at this hotel should we plan another trip to Paris in the near future.

Room Tip: May want o request an upper level room off the street.

Visiting Paris for the fourth time we pondered would we revisit Hotel Duminy Vendome for the second time or look for something different. After some research and remembering our stay last time we decided to return to the boutique hotel in the centrally located Rue de Mont Thabor. Our last stay three years ago the room was a little small so we decided to splash out on a Deluxe Suite. Arriving at 7.15pm after experiencing 11 hours of travel stress when we made our way from Dover to Paris via Heathrow Airport we just needed to chillout. In hindsight we should have caught the Eurostar. We were given Room 601 and made our way to our Attic Suite which was spacious with three large windows each of which looked out across a courtyard to similar Parisienne Attics. The stress lifted we were back in the City of Light. This hotel is centrally located with The Louvre, Musee's D'Orsay and de l'Orangerie all within easy walking distance. The Tuileries Metro and the Tuileries Garden are virtually around the corner and across the Rue de Rivoli. Just a tip in the evening go and sit in the Tuileries Garden and see how the locals kick back after work. This hotel still provides excellent value and the breakfast is just what one needs to prepare for a day walking the cobblestones of Paree. The staff are great and took their time to explain how to move around on the Metro and especially Vivien at the front desk who walked us through how to get to Reims by TGV on a day trip to Reims. We stayed five nights from 28 June to 3 July 2014 and for A$ 2300 with breakfast this was value for money.

Dear Rob,

Thank you very much for your loyalty to the Duminy Vendôme.

As you mentioned our Deluxe rooms are more spacious.

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you were able to experience the Parisian life style as you said the Jardin des Tuileries is only few minutes away from the hotel and it is very nice especially during Spring and Summer time. Parisians love to go there and relax after work.

It is a great pleasure for us to read your good comments. We have forwarded your compliments to our team and especially Vivien, and do thank you on their behalf.

We look forward to welcoming you again on your next trip to Paris.

Very well located. Few steps from Rue de Rivoli which means close to the Louvre, Tuileries, Opera and many other great spots in Paris. Helpful staff and decent clean rooms. My only issue is the apparently thin wall which makes easy to enter the noise from other rooms. Fair daily rate when compared with other options in the same category.

Stayed 3 nights with my wife in a Deluxe room. The room was comfortable and spacious. However, the bathroom was a little dated albeit very clean. I had a rather unpleasant experience though when I had a leak in my bathroom ceiling. I reported the problem to the front desk and it was taken care of in record speed. Compliments to the staff and the maintenance crew which was also very friendly. Although the hotel fixed the problem, I still find it unacceptable that the hotel did not make an effort to improve our stay since my wife and I each had water (I'm not sure from where) drip onto us while using our bathroom.
I had read reviews about noise and my room faced Rue du Mont Thabor so I was concerned, but I did not find it to be very noisy at all. There was a garbage truck that came by early in the morning, but it swiftly moved on and was not a concern. Also, I did not have any noise problems with the bars which abut the property.
The staff was really the most memorable part of the stay as each person was very pleasant and helpful (from the front desk, to the maintenance crew, to the dining staff). The breakfast was delicious and offered a variety of juices, meats, cheeses, yogurts and pastries, as well as eggs and sausages. The air conditioning worked fabulously as well - this is not so standard in Europe and it was appreciated in the June heat.
The location of the hotel is really nice. All in all we would likely stay here again, but I would definitely shop around. They could have made me a lifer but I can't completely agree with the way the plumbing leak was handled in my room.

Room Tip: The Deluxe room was spacious but I cannot compare to standard room since I did not stay in one. The...

Stayed for 4 nights in a deluxe room and found the room very comfortable and spacious for Paris.The staff were very friendly, attentive and were always on hand to make our stay an enjoyable & memorable one. Great location for easy access to the main tourist attractions.
To put it simply, the hotel offered great value for money, perfect location to explore Paris, friendly staff and very a satisfying breakfast. Will definitely re-book this hotel in the future for my stay in Paris.Having been to Paris multiple times over the years its nice to find a hotel which I can come back to without hesitation.

Hotel Duminy Vendome is a lovely hotel. We stayed there in May. We were able to access our room even though we arrived very early, at 9 am. The staff are welcoming and helpful. Our Deluxe Room 408 was spacious and spotlessly clean. The bathroom is also a good size. The Hotel is no more than 10 minutes walk from the Louvre, Park Tuille the Obelisk, the Opera, so an excellent location. Unfortunately the walls are paper thin and you can hear the people in the next room talking. Our room faced the road and the noise on the road outside our window never stopped, with garbage trucks emptying bins in the early hours and people shouting at night. You could sleep with the windows shut which dulls the noise. The included breakfast was great, good choices and a lovely breakfast room. If it wasn't for the thin walls I'd give it a 5* rating.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper a room away from the street would be better.

Dear Sirs,

Thank you very much for your comments about your recent stay at the Duminy Vendôme in Paris.

As you mentioned hotel Duminy is a good spot for visitors who wish to see the highlights of the city easily.

If the room is ready at guest arrival they can of course access it immediately even if it before 3pm. Otherwise, we have a storage room to keep your luggage until the room is ready and coffee and tea facilities at the bar.

Asking for a room facing the courtyard (if available) is a good option for light sleepers who wish to have a very quiet night.

Our entire team thanks you for your nice compliments.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family again on your next trip to Paris.

This is my second stay at the Duminy. Twelve years apart. Excellent property. Clean everything - rooms, lounge, entry, breakfast area - all in excellent repair. Superior staff! Multilingual! We stayed 6 nights. During that time the staff assisted with directions, ensured we were notified by a personal card, not voice mail, of a change in our airport shuttle for the day we were leaving. The food was quite good for breakfast. One day we had to be at the tour company at 0630, the same time breakfast started. At 0600, we had a "take away" provided with hit coffee, cream, croissants, napkins which we ate in the ground floor lounge. This service was offered to us, not requested! If and when I get back to Paris, I will definitely stay here again.

A few more points. Louvre, 10 minute walk; grocery, 8 minute walk; Musee de Orsay, 10 minute walk; Musee de Orangerie 10 minute walk; Eiffel Tower, 30 minute walk; Cathédrale du Notre Dame, 30 minute walk. Carr's Irish Pub, if you need an "English" fix, next door. Rivoli Park Tavern, around the corner. You get the picture.

Room Tip: Standard room is excellent.
