This is an excellent hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. We were in Paris for the 2014 marathon and the Duret's location to the start and finish is absolutely perfect as is it's 3 minute walk to the Metro. We had a standard double room on the first floor which was small but clean, modern and well presented. The free wifi, safe and the use of a computer was useful. Our only criticism maybe is the lack of free tea/coffee facility in the room. The Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Élysées are only a short walk away and the closeness to the metro makes sightseeing easy. We would highly recommend this to anyone and look forward to our next visit. Thank you to all at the Hotel Duret, you're great!
