Great location, wonderful staff, bad carpet. We have been staying in this hotel years ago and we are happy to have done it. Rooms need to be modernized and carpets need to be changed or clean. Language of staff is just the best
I travel to Paris very regularly, and this hotel has become one of my top choices. It is a good value, with a very helpful staff. The only drawback is that the rooms are small, even by Paris standards, so long as you know this, you will find the hotel exceeds expectations. It could not be more central, being just 50m from the Place de la Concorde. As such it competes with a lot of other 4 and 5 star hotels in the area. It is consistently among the most price competitive. The hotel lobby, like the rest of the hotel, is compact. To one side, a small bar, to the other the reception. Although small, the reception area does have a little ambiance. There is also the breakfast room, which is relatively spacious, and the breakfast is quite complete. They do not do lunch or dinners, but there are dozens of restaurants in the area... plan ahead with bookings. The reception staff are very helpful, so long as you don't ask for what they cannot give. 90% of the time this revolves around room readiness before their normal check in time. I have found that if you can be flexible about room type, they often can help out. They are also very helpful with resultant bookings, directions etc. The rooms are well appointed, the bathrooms are modern. But now for the most common complaint. The building is small, and old-fashioned. As a result, the rooms are small. I actually don't mind the small, as they are well appointed, but the lack of storage space, even for a three or four day business trip is what drives me crazy. A few more drawers is all I ask. I would recommend going for the superior rooms. They are a little better, and not all that more expensive. The Junior Suites are not really worth the significant jump in price. I have been to almost all the hotels in the area, and there are definitely better hotels, but not at this value point. If you don't intend to spend your days in the room, I would certainly recommend this hotel.
Melia Vendome was a good surprise. Located just 1 minute from Rue Saint Honore and Rue de Rivoli it is in the very elegant center of Paris. The hall is well decorated although not particularly large, the rooms are small (as everywhere in Paris) but well furnished. No slippers nor bathrobe in the room. Although if you task the reception they may give it to you. The safe in the room has a stupid mechanism for which the first time u have to insert the key card to memorize your combination. Nothing wrong, except that if you arrive in the evening you have to take the Key card off from the socket and so the room light goes off....The room was also lacking a bit of illumination. But all in all nothing unbearable. The good part is that if you reserve well in advance, and use the Melia’s website directly, you will pay a lot less than any other possible accommodation in that area. Costes and Mandarin Oriental just around the corner don charge less than 500 euros per night. If you are lucky. So good value for money. Will definitely go again when in Paris.
Everything was clean and service was very good. Staff are friendly and attentive. The hotel is very well located and you have wonderful shops right outside, but it's not a busy area.. Was a delight to stay in this lovely hotel.
We have stayed at Melia hotels before and always had a good experience - - until now. We had originally booked in the Melia Colbert on the Left Bank, which was a beautiful hotel and lovely room. Unfortunately, it was a heat wave and the a/c did not work so they kindly transferred us to the Vendome property. This hotel is in a great area - close to the Louvre, restaurants, shopping, etc... - but the hotel itself is pretty charm-free. That would not have been a problem if not for the room which was really unpleasant in just about every way. The a/c was infinitesimal; barely a whisper of air coming out of one vent in the doorway. I understand that it is Europe and that Paris generally does not get that hot. At the same time, this is a major chain hotel and I expected some level of comfort. In any case, that was not the only problem. The sheets were very uncomfortable. The closet door was broken. The safe had trouble locking. The light in the bathroom was out and the bathroom itself was tiny. On the plus said, the staff was very nice and helpful, from the maid service to the front desk service. We would definitely not go back nor would we recommend to anyone. This experience will make me think twice about staying in a Melia hotel again.
We booked into Melia Vendome hotel when we visited Paris recently. We chose this hotel mainly because of its convenient location, for sightseeing, shopping, food, etc. Rue Cambon is a very narrow street, but in the middle of all the famous designer houses. Melia hotel therefore is super designed, sleek, and efficient. The room, however, was very tiny, and the toilet floor always got wet after the shower, since the gliding door is not tight. The breakfast was if typical Parisian hotel ones. Despite the small room size, the hotel obviously regards itself as one within the luxury hotel sector, with uncertain results.
Excellent location and spacious suites for the price. Ask for the upper floors, as the lower floors are noisy. Breakfast is pretty good and plentiful. The lobby needs a refresh but, very comfortable and inviting. Not the Ritz, but I would definitely stay here again.
A small and very pleasant hotel with friendly staff, beautiful room, nicely decorated, view on to the local street, yet very quiet. Ideal for a stay right in the very centre of town, next to the Tuileries or rue St Honore. Delicious choice for breakfast.
Wonderfully professional staff, great location, clean rooms. Nice breakfast. Close to all the major attractions. Nice side streets in the area to explore. Easy and friendly check in. This hotel is exactly what you'd expect from a quality hotel.
Personally I like being in the middle of "crazy and chaotic" if I want to experience the vibe of a city. This hotel is located in one of the best and "ritzy" areas of Paris. You are surrounded by high end stores and great cafes and restaurants. You can walk to Notre Dame and to the Eiffel Tower (if you like walking)....which is truly how you should experience Paris. Walk, walk, walk....the hotel is cozy and offers great service. Splurge a little and go for the Grand Premium Rooms on the 6th floor and view of street. Stay away from 511...too chopped and for me (claustrophobic) a view of the courtyard made it feel even smaller. The front desk staff: Nicolas, Jesus y Carlos are great! they are welcoming and very informative. Love this hotel! I highly recommend it if you want to be in a great location in Paris. My only negative comment would be keep up with the Jones' and renovate the rooms. Update them with USB connectors, more channels on TV, take out the rugs and replace with hard wood, etc. Keep the classy look but modernize it a bit. When we return to Paris we will be back!
