Thank you for taking the time to make my time memorable. The hotel is ideally situated in a prime location in Paris, and it became a focal point in my business trip to Paris. The staff was helpful, and this made for a memorable experience.
You must stay here. Great location. Fabulous, incredible staff. David at the front desk is one of the most helpful, sweetest, most accommodating individual I ever met in business customer service. First room was fine, but too warm. The night manager immediately offered us another, much better room. I cannot say enough positive about this. And I'm not easily pleased. Kudos to everyone at this wonderful hotel. I WILL be back.
I recently visited Paris with my 6 year old daughter and met up with a single parent friend and her son. They opted to stay at the Westin Vendome but it was too pricey for me; I chose the Melia as it was close by but not as hard on my wallet. I was not disappointed. The staff were friendly and professional. The candy bar in the lobby was a hit with my daughter, especially as they jazzed it up for Easter. The morning breakfast is pricey, but they offered me a special deal for the duration of my stay even though I had not arranged in advance. The rooms are a little small (though larger than that of my friend's at the Westin) and I had difficulty adjusting the heat in the room, which seemed set at "sauna" -- even after requesting assistance. As others have mentioned the location is excellent.
We booked via TripAdvisor and were not disappointed in any way. A 4 star hotel but feels more 5 star. Located off the Rue de Rivole (spelt wrong I'm sure) in the hear of Paris, close to the Place de Concord and the Louvre and within a top shopping district this hotel does aim to please. Not happy with our first rooms as we were 4 in 2 rooms and not close to each other they moved us the next day without any issues. Whilst the rooms can be small they are perfect, well kept and comfortable. Breakfast is provided but a little expensive, however I can not recommend this little hotel enough.
I loved staying at this hotel. The location couldn't be more perfect. The staff was so helpful and recommended great restaurants. There were 4 of us staying in 2 rooms. They offered us room upgrades at a discount when we checked in at 20 Euros per night, per room. We did upgrade our rooms and while the weren't huge (it's Paris), they were a nice size. There is only one thing you need to know about this hotel is that if you have a room that faces the street and you want or need to sleep with the windows open, it is noisy. It was a warm March week when we stayed there and the AC was not on yet. Some of us needed earplugs to sleep. I got used to it by day 3. I was in a courtyard room originally but it was a smoking room so I needed to change that. But that room was very quiet. The only thing I didn't like was the mini bar. It seemed more expensive than most and I didn't really like anything in it so we didn't use it. But to me this is minor. Overall this was a really nice stay for us and I can't think of one bad thing to say. This is a beautiful, clean hotel with a friendly knowledgeable staff in one of the best locations in Paris and I would stay there again.
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.
