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.

... and the boy jumped off his seat to offer it to someone. The train jolted and he grabbed my sides as if he were grabbing me to stop himself from falling over. He apologised and I didn't think anything of it. The man sitting next to him said to us, be careful of that boy because he is a pick pocket. Luckily I didn't have anything in my jacket pockets and my bag was crossed over my body at the front where I was holding it. What a little **** ...
... insane this weekend, we would've spent all day in lines!
Monday I went to the Louvre with the Gorius family, I could spend hours in the museum just looking at all the collections! Of course we went to all the most famous pieces but we also got to see Napoleon the III's apartments which were beautiful! Definitely worth going to see if you make it to the Louvre. That was very fun because it was one of the parts of the Louvre that I hadn't seen before. Then ...
... though not well known) Basilica, where St Paul was buried (according to tradition). The next morning we had some free time and walked to some distance from the Vatican to the Pantheon, which is now a church (which was closed the last time we went to Rome) and also to visit Piazza Navona to see the exquisite marble statues & fountains. (Sadly, there were no vendors selling giant chocolate donuts this time like when we were there during ...
... the French in a good way, never with any of their losses (unlike other countries we've visited they depict their wins and losses ie. Napoleon lol)We went though King and Queen apartments, which were very fancy and impressive. It was interesting hearing the etiquette from those days, when greeting certain guests and the rules of each room.Next stop was a room dedication to the many War victories. Each war was shown in massive pieces of Artwork, including Joan ...
Things didn't look much better in the morning. Upon closer inspection of the kitchen i realised the following items were missing: a sharp knife, cutting board, kettle, drying rack, bowls, just to name a few. Also, there was only one sponge in the kitchen which looked like it was dying a horrible bacteria infested death. Our first move for the day was going to have to ...
