Melia Vendome - Paris
Ranked #361 of 1,803 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 28, 2013

The iconic Maison Chanel is located at Rue Cambon, one tiny block away from Melia Vendome Boutique Hotel. Leaving the hotel main entrance, until reaching Coco Chanel atelier (and its famous stairway), you will cross the world celebrated St Honoré street, and will be also delighted by the windows of several other fashion symbols. Drenched in its upscale and charming neighborhood, crowded with beautifully dressed people strolling among utterly expensive cars, lays this boutique hotel. It is not a luxury hotel indeed, but it is excellent. Rooms are classically furnished, and staff is attentive and caring. The best in this hotel is its location, perfect either for beginners (close to the Tuileries metro station, Louvre, L’Orangérie, Musée D’Orsay, Place de la Concorde, Champs Elysées, etc) or Parisian addicts (the legendary flaneurs). For the macaron lovers, nearby Melia Vendome are the unforgettable maisons Pierre Hermé and Hugo et Victor – pure indulgence. Don’t forget visiting the hidden Place St Honoré, the best gastronomic choice in this arrondissement from the breakfast to dinner, few steps away from Place Vendome.

We were very specific in making reservations to make sure that we had a two- room suite. Their website information on deluxe singles and a junior suite were somewhat confusing. We had an email exchange to clarify that we wanted their junior suite that had two separate rooms. After a lot of traveling, we found that printing out email exchanges with the reservation office solves problems at the front desk. At check-in, they assured us that they had our junior suite as requested. When we went to our room, it was a single room. We went promptly went to the front desk and were told that this was a junior suite and that it had two rooms- bedroom and bathroom. We told them that this was unacceptable and was not what their reservation department had committed to and showed them our email log. They changed out our room to a proper two-room junior suite, a very nice bedroom- larger than the entire first room, that they had showed us, with a separate living room with desk, couch and sitting area. They then attempted to explain that the desk had simply assigned the wrong room, despite our specificity at initial check-in. Their sincerity was questionable and we truly believe that they were holding back better rooms at our expense and discomfort. While the hotel is on a secondary street, the noise insulation is inadequate and if you choose to retire much before midnight, you will find it hard to get a good night’s sleep. It was quite warm for October and the AC was inadequate and opening the windows due to the noise was out of the question. I can’t imagine the problems with cooling in July or August. Additionally, while I don’t expect silks and satins, it seemed that the bed linens had a relatively low thread count, and appeared a bit rough. Also, while they offer free WIFI, the bandwidth appears to be quite limited, making work requirements unnecessarily difficult. Using VOI became quite difficult with drops and fluctuating breaks. My wife had a bad experience in the bar and found the bartender rude and unaccommodating, reviewed separately. On the positive, the second room was quite nice, large and well appointed. Also, the location is fine, only two blocks from the Louvre, less than three miles from the Gare du Nord and 45 minutes from CDG. We have stayed at Gran Melia properties in the past and have always been pleased. This was our first stay at a Melia (only) and most probably our last.

I would really recommend this hotel for business or pleasure- amazing location close to everything- The rooms and staff really welcoming and just ideal for a quick break. I hope to be back for a weekend trip rather than business.

This place is just so close to the Louvre, Champs E., Arc d Triomphe, Les Invalides, Notre Dame, the river, the carnival, the shopping and the FOOD!!! Well we are not spring chickens and we walked everywhere from this hotel. Clean and lovely the bathroom is decked out in marble so we had our very own piece of Parisienne elegance just for us! The bed was very comfortable and the size of the room was perfect with a desk and occasional table. The windows open for fresh air and to enjoy the historic surrounding buildings complete with the French flag, and elegant architecture. Breakfast was a great feast with fresh fruits and yoghurts, and cereals, and fabulous eggs any way you like with whatever you like, and a variety of breads, croissants, cheeses, meats and - well I think we got to everything on offer - but maybe not... The staff were just fabulous - calling to confirm tours was not a worry, supplying coffee and croissants before an early tour pick up was no trouble - and neither was helping me open the safe when I mucked up the combination somehow....The staff were also happy to assist me with language and direction questions so my entire visit inside and outside the hotel was enhanced as a result! Two items to improve on in my opinion - the hotel laundry service needs to be cheaper! We had already been away for several weeks and we had booked in too many activities to spend any time at a laundromat. The in-house service was a bit expensive. Also it would have been nice to be able to make a cup of tea or coffee in the room (but that is just what we are used to and it was Paris... So no deal breaker there!). Most of the staff speak a number of languages too. We really enjoyed our time at this hotel and we will certainly be going back if we want the city and sights Paris accommodation.

This lovely boutique hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Paris.
We were surprised to learn that Chanel opened her first-ever boutique in the same street (Rue Cambon), it is still there, literally a short walk away from the Melia Vendome.
Overall, a perfect location for shops, attractions, underground (Metro) and restaurants.
Even if you miss your Starbucks, it is in 2 minutes walk; there is also a lovely wine shop very close to the Melia Vendome and a couple of gorgeous cafes.

I understand the hotel was refurbished not long ago and their suites are elegant and yet very homely, of generous size. My family spent a long weekend there, loved the room and the staff at the hotel, who were all very friendly, helpful and warm.

The breakfast was very generous; in Paris you sometimes don't get a massive choice. Here they served a great buffet and freshly made omelette was available as well.
We were happily surprised to see champagne on the breakfast buffet. The concierge guys and the team at the reception were really helpful and attentive.

We will certainly come back to stay here again.

Room Tip: Would recommend to ask for a family size room, or a suite. They are great.

This hotel is in the middle of an excellent area. Close by to main attractions and easy to get to. Rooms need remodeling. Air conditioning not efficient and expect a very bad wifi, even though it's offered as a free perk. Service is good at the hotel.

Firstly, the location. This hotel couldn't be better situated if you want to walk to the main sights, with the Tuileries Gardens at the end of the street. We specifically chose it for this, and were not disappointed.
Secondly, this is a very expensive part of Paris (though we found everywhere expensive) so be prepared to walk away from the Vendome/Rivoli area if you want to save a few Euros on food.
The rooms are comfortable, with everything you require and a smart clean and spacious bathroom. Hanging space for clothes was very limited, however. In a hot August in Paris we were glad of the effective air conditioning.
The staff were generally friendly and helpful and spoke good English. As a group of 4 women, when we arrived we were asked if two of us would like single rooms, and we got the impression that this was so they did not have to remake the beds in a double room as singles. We declined. We also had a couple of problems with the shower and lighting, both of which were solved promptly whilst we were out for the day.
We took breakfast one morning, which had an excellent choice and quality of food, from fresh fruit to cooked items, including cooked to order omelettes. Be warned however that the 'special offer' summer rate only applies if you take breakfast every day of your stay, as we didn't feel this was made clear.
I do have to praise the staff for their helpfulness when one of my friends unfortunately had her wallet stolen when out at a restaurant.
All in all, a well located, clean, and comfortable hotel.
