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.
