We stayed at the Melia Place Vendom for six nights.
Hotel's location is definitely AAA – It's two minutes from Place Vendom, Place Concord, Tuileries gardens and the Louvre. On the front tend one of Paris's most tours street – Rivoli, and on the back, one of Paris's most Chic and luxurious streets – St. Honore.
The facility has a beautifully designed lobby and lounge room and receptionists were quite helpful and pleasant.
Also, the room we had was surprisingly large, as well as quite designed, especially if you consider other Parisian institutes, and the value for the sum we paid.
On the other hand, we experienced some annoying down faults involved with the facility, as well as service. To name some: When we walked into the room, I was amazed to find (used?) toilet paper inside the toilet seat! Also, there was a nerve-wracking sound coming from the bathroom, every two seconds, which sounded like drops. When we called maintenance, they couldn't locate the source, so they had to move us to another room. This new room was also beautiful, but was right next to the elevator, which meant, that each time you were in the bathroom, and the elevator was used – you could hear the floor number announced – quite annoying for those of you that want relaxing baths… Alsom the bathroom door would not completely close, so we had to put something under it from inside so it wouldn't open.
There were at least five more issues, including a cattle we requested in the room to boil water for our baby, and even though triple confirmed, was nowhere to be found, until they came up with one on day two, housekeeping that left dirty glasses in the room, and did not bring new ones, a EU28 breakfast that could defiantly use some additions – vegetables to name one, etc'…
Overall I would gladly recommend this hotel, but on the same time would strongly recommend to the management to put some thought into dramatically improving the quality of maintenance in the facility, as well as making sure all of the staff are well trained as far as expected levels of service go.
