Historical Traveler Reviews Duminy Vendome Paris
As Good As It Gets...
... in the best location in Paris: helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms, well maintained facilities. EVERYTHING is convenient including restaurants. I would not hesitate to stay here again - in fact, am planning another trip right NOW.
The hotel room was very clean. The bathroom was as well. I found the staff helpful and friendly. It is in a great location. Room 109 was quiet and had a simple veiw of the center garden (very small.) I suggest this hotel.
Can't beat it
I have stayed here several times since 1980. Each time I go to Paris I search the hotel listings and always end up booking the Duminy Vendome.
It's a nice, little, clean, no-frills hotel on a quiet street; within a short walking distance of the Louvre, Pl. de la Concorde, Tuileries Gardens, Opera, Paris Vision tour office, etc. Best of all, the "Tuileries" Metro stop is just 1 1/2 blocks away, which connects you to all of Paris. I searched the Internet again last night looking for a hotel in Paris for my upcoming trip in March. Once again I ended up booking the Duminy Vendome. You just can't beat it for price and location.
Great location, tired rooms
My friend and I stayed at the Duminy for three nights beginning October 8, 2003. The first time I stayed in this hotel was 1979, and not much has changed. They have added the belowground breakfast room, which desperately needs to be decorated in some fashion, and the "buffet" breakfast is only so so. Our room on the fifth floor faced the street, and was extraordinarily noisy. There is a bar a few doors down, and folks would carry on in the street until 3am or later. The room was fair sized, especially for Paris, and the bathroom was decent sized, with a shower over tub that was good. Unfortunately, the paint was chipping off the walls in great hunks, and really made the place look shabby. The lobby and sitting area are as I remembered, but the courtyard and the bar were not there in 1979. The location is excellent. We paid $180 per night for a twin room with breakfast and taxes.
Affordable Louvre convenience
The Duminy Vendome is an affordable hotel conveniently located within easy walking distance to the Louvre, the Seine and fashionable shopping. If that's what you're in Paris to see, this is a resonable hotel.
Our room was unusually large (for European standards) and located on the ground floor with a view of the quaint courtyard. The bed was lumpy and the rest of the furnishings were average. The front desk staff were helpful, also average.
To truly experience Paris, I'd recommend staying on the Left Bank instead, where there are less touristy, junk shops. The Duminy Vendome, however, is close enough to cross the Seine so its Right Bank location is not a real drawback.
Great location, great rate
Stayed here last November and absolutely loved it. Had a beautiful room on a top floor. New, modern bathroom. Breakfast was included and quite generous. Walked everywhere: Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, Tuileries, Rivoli shops. Metro station is only two blocks away. Hotel is on a very quiet street parallel to Rivoli. Can't say enough nice things about it.
Awesome - love it!
I really loved this hotel - it was a wonderful value. Very reasonably priced. The rooms are nice, the breakfast is very good in the morning, and there is also a cute little courtyard in the center of the hotel. They decorate the hotel with gorgeous flower arrangements, the people are very nice, there is a little bar if you care to have a drink, and the location is outstanding. It is right off the rue de rivoli! I really loved this hotel and would definitely stay there again the next time I go to paris.
Enjoyed my stay in May, 2003. Staff was very helpful, multi-lingual and cheerful. Wonderful buffet breakfast each AM. Rooms a little small, very clean and with a nice bathroom. Great location.
Loved the duminy vendome
The hotel was absolutely charming, exactly what one thinks of as a small Parisian hotel. THe courtyard is a thing of beauty, the staff warm, friendly and very helpful. The location is ideal; very close to the Louvre and the Tuilleries gardens. All in all a delightful place to stay. If I had the opportunity to visit Paris again, I would definitely stay at this hotel.
Loved the Duminy Vendome
a friend and I stayed there about 5 years ago and found it to be very affordable, clean, very comfortable and in a great location. I book clients there whenever I have the opportunity.

Travel Blogs from Paris
Uhhgggg. This morning we dragged ourselves out of bed at 7:30am to go and see the Catacombs de Paris. Despite this attraction not even ranking in the top 100 in Paris on TripAdvisor, it is still so popular that it averages a 4 hour long wait.... all day.... every day. According to the reviews, if you want to avoid this wait, your only option is to arrive before 8:30am whereby you'll only have to wait for 2 ...
ParisAfter a lovely little nap on the plane from Barcelona to Paris we saw the Eiffel tower as we were coming into landing, we were on the wrong side of the plane so it was just a quick glimpse.Going through the city was breathtaking how can any other city compare to these amazing buildings. Em and I didn’t know where to look. We were in the Front of a Van, like the Hyundai I Load. We used a transport company so ...
... sure we visited first thing. We walked around the area mostly closed on Sunday but found a great little sandwich and crepe shop on the bottom of our building. It was actually a delicious meal for only a few euros. On the train to the tower a lady brought in a speaker and microphone and started singing on the train. Either this is a super common occurrence or we have just gotten really lucky today. We've heard over and over how the line for tickets and the elevator are ...
... Eiffel Tower, before it disappeared behind the clouds. An hour to reach London and we landed at 7pm. I was shocked at the lack of passport queue at T4 - it's usually pretty horrendous here! And then the mission to get home. I am usually picked up, but not today - I'm using public transport. Eekk. First step - bus 490 from outside the terminal building to Feltham. Bought train ticket at Feltham, but no trains!!!!!!! Rail replacement bus service. Not impressed. ...
... was at 9:30am. It was supposed to be a direct train taking just over 5 hours. About 3 hours into the trip our train encountered a huge snow storm and about 15 minutes of zooming through the snow our train came to a stop. There we stayed for just about an hour or so. Then we started to move in the wrong direction, actually going back toward Nice. For some reason, unknown to us since the announcements were only made in French, our train ...
