“Close to everything, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Duminy Vendome was a really pleasant surprise. I had been given plenty of warning about how small the rooms in Paris hotels were and I was not expecting much, but the room was lovely with massive balcony style doors that fully open (ours out to a view of the internal court yard) - pure Housmann architecture.

The location is great, across the road from the Tuilleries (and the Tuilleries Metro), really short walk to Place de la Concorde and then right onto the Champs Elysees. In fact everything is "just a short walk", just awesome.

It is close to some excellent little cafes, we spent most of our time at Cafe Rivoli Park, just around the corner but there is a little Carrefour down the round if you want to pick up supermarket essentials.

The breakfast rooms is really sweet too, very much cellar chic, just get there before 9.30 - it tends to fill up pretty quickly.

...while in Paris, I don't know how you can get better than this. It is a short, short walk to the Champs Elysees, it is right by the Louvre, the next block over from the Jardin des Tuileries, and on the other side of the gardens is the River Seine and the docks where my wife & I took the best ever riverboat dinner cruise. The people at the hotel were so nice, friendly, and helpful. I accidentally left my cell phone in a rental car that I had turned in at the airport. Not-to-worry, the super helpful people at the front desk called Hertz and somehow (unbenounced to me) got my phone delivered to the hotel front desk for me! Now that's service!

I stayed in Paris for 4 days, & I chose this hotel for it's amazing location & for the fact that there is a police station 11 min away helped me feel safe because I am a single female traveling alone. The room for 1 person was excellent. The bathroom was spacious & always tidy when I came back in for the night. I also had a small fridge which was great.I would highly recommend this hotel.

Dear Madam,

Thank you for this kind comment. All the teams are happy you had a nice stay with us.

Usually and except the pickpockets, the 1st district where is located the hotel is already pretty safe.

Just for your information, there is a police station closer than the one you saw at five minutes away from the hotel!

We tried to do our best to give you a room clean when you came back from a long days visiting the city.

We hope to see you again in a very near future.

Best regards,

Lucie D.

The hotel is perfectly located just few minutes of walk from gardens and Louvre. A lot of shops and restaurants in teh nearby. The receiption is helpful. The breakfast is pretty good with meat and chease selection, sausages. Rooms are very small but that is rather usual for the center of Paris.

Dear Guests,

Thank you for sharing your feelings about your recent stay at the Hotel.

As you mentioned it, the hotel is ideally located, right at the center of Paris, near from everything walking distance or taking the metro.

We have forwarded your kind word to our teams and they are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.

As you wrote, we have a large set of choice on our buffet breakfast, ideal to have a good start for busy days in the city.

Some of our rooms are smaller than expected, we also have Deluxe room that are larger especially when staying more than 3 nights.

We hope to welcome you again at the hotel.

Best regards,

From the moment we set foot in the hotel my wife and I received wonderful service from polite and helpful staff at the Hotel Duminy Vendome. The staff all spoke English, were exceedingly polite and helpful and pleasant to deal with during our 7 night stay.

Reception staff were only too willing to assist with advise about restaurants nearby for dinner and offering to assist with travel plans in and around Paris, a very nice team of people including the staff who managed the daily breakfast service which was available in a lovely old wine cellar.

Its a nicely appointed, clean & well priced hotel with good air-conditioning and excellent free WiFi The rooms are soundproofed so it was quiet and great for sleeping in what is a busy and noisy city till the wee hours.

Handy to Metro stations and is close to key sites of Paris so a walk is not a problem also.

We will stay there again - for sure a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Be straight up making clear what you need before you book, don't take the cheapest option and th...

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.

Having stayed at Hotel Duminy Vendome twice, I love the fact that this simple, elegant, boutique hotel nestles in amongst some of the most expensive hotels in the city, in an expensive part of town - but is affordable. Almost alongside the Louvre Museum, across the river from Musee D'Orsay and 20 mins walk from Notre Dame, the hotel is also smack in the middle of some very classy shops and restaurants. To set you up for the day, the hotel also offers a truly excellent breakfast in the northern European style, (cold meats, yoghurts, fresh fruit salad, cheese, hot food, meusli, fresh-squeezed juice) rather than just coffee and croissant - and at the moment it is included in the room-rate - another bonus. I'll stay there again !

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the courtyard/back area, rather than the street

Thank you very much for your loyalty to the Duminy Vendôme.
We are happy that you enjoyed your second stay in our hotel.
As you mentioned reserving a room facing the courtyard is a good option for light sleepers.
Our breakfast room is as you wrote very complete, we are glad to read that you enjoyed it.

As soon as the 4 of us arrived on their doorstep, struggling with big suitcases to hoist up the small flight of steps at the hotel entry, the desk personnel came running ( well, maybe not literally but fast!) to take those bags from us and welcome us to the hotel. This level of helpfulness continued the entire stay as they held our luggage in a locked room while we played tourist, made recommendations for sight-seeing, provided maps, and made phone calls to make sure our reservations and pick-ups for the next day were confirmed. We so appreciated their friendly attitude and care! The elevator was tiny and our room had a few oddities, such as a safe that was directly on the closet floor (want to lie on the floor to use it?! We did!) and a bathroom with only half a shower door and no counter space, despite having room for it, but with the way we were welcomed and greeted, a traveler can overlook a lot! Merci beaucoup, DV - nous retournerons avec plaisir!
