I've read some of these reviews and have to say, my experience was really perfect. The location was great, the room was comfortable and chic, the price was great and I would really use the word "kind" to describe the staff. From before I arrived they made dinner reservations for me, changed my room size, and answered tourist-y questions. By... More

There is a front desk person from around 12:00 through 17:00 during the week that is wonderful and really made the stay here an excellent experience. The hotel is one block from the Hotel D'Ville metro station and 3 blocks from the train station. Since the hotel is in the middle of the Marais, it is in walking distance to... More

Very pleasant and friendly staff. Rooms were clean, and had a modern decor. Near many metro stations and Centre Pompidou. Lots of shopping nearby. Breakfast was expensive, and you only get a croissant, so you are better to just go over to the little shop across the street.

When they say "location, location, location" is what it takes. ..not with Hotel Duo. Great location but that is where it ends. It started with trying to reserve a room with 2 beds and the response is "it is not available" but upon check in, this room type was available. The staff is unpleasant, uncooperative and uncaring. It was not... More

We stayed at this hotel for four nights in Sept. after moving across the river from another hotel. This was clearly the better place to stay. The hotel was close, clean, the room was excellent, we had tons of space, which is hard to get in Paris. The staff, save for one, were always friendly and helpful.

Great great location. One min from Metro. Couple of mins from Pompidou. Decent sized room for Paris too and nice bathroom. Very chic, very trendy (casting for Paris Fashion Week seemed to be going on judging by prevalence of very tall very skinny girls). Pricey though.....

Attain affordable elegance at this boutique hotel located in one of the coolest and best-situated quartiers in paris. If you're not a very large person, this will do just fine. The rooms are kept immaculate and are tastefully decorated. The entire hotel sticks to modern decor, predominantly chocolate and off-white, with raspberry, eggplant and chartreuse accents. Bathrooms are white, spotless... More

I booked the Duo for a long weekend for a surprise for my girlfriend. After reading some of the reviews I was getting a little worried about what to expect.
