“Beautiful hotel - Marais”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2011

I spent 3 days in August with my boyfriend in this great hotel. Small and stylish, incredibly well situated in a beautiful and lively area. We could go walking or by bike everywhere, and it is close to the RER for the airport.
At night it could be a bit noisy as it has night life around... but we were so tired when we arrived we hardly noticed it.
If you are looking for a big room, i don't think this is your hotel. But if you want to give yourself a small luxury and enjoy the city centre, i highly recommend it.

Hotel Duo offers comfortable rooms although quite small even by Parisian standards. The location is fantastic....perfect for exploring Le Marais. Get out your credit card, because the price per square meter is trés cher!

This cute boutique hotel with its cute tiny rooms is one of the nicest one i have stayed in Paris.

Stylish and contemporary in design, the hotel offers a nice shot at the bar on your arrival and breakfast is also available for an extra 15 Euros. It is just a few steps walk from Hotel de Ville and metro station with the same name and BHV, one of the famous french department stores.

You can stroll around the famous Le Marais area and dine of one of the cute little cafes or restaurants or simply shop in one of the fashion stores.

The staff are very nice and attentive and always welcome you with a smile. I have been staying at this hotel for few years now and would not change it for another.

The only downside I find is that no matter how long you have been staying there, they never seem to remember you but then again, that could be a blessing for some..

We stayed for a week in October. Staff was excellent, helpful, cheerful and multi-lingual. Recent renovation is stylish and youthful. However, our room, a standard double, was about the size of a queen bed with about another 2 and a half feet around the bed on each side. Very little closet space. Bathroom tiny as well. I guess that's how it is in Paris, but it was really difficult for two people, we kept bumping into each other trying to access the closet or bathroom. Price was about 220 euro a night - seemed like a lot for space the size of a postage stamp. Some rooms appear to be larger, but you'll probably have to pay a premium. I would go for it, if you can afford it. Beds were comfortable, and it was pretty quiet. Maintenance was a bit substandard - they couldn't fix one light in the bathroom, which kept going out, and the housekeeping staff didn't replace tissues. The Duo enjoys a super location - a block from Hotel de Ville metro stop, in the Marais. We enjoyed strolling in the Marais at night, stopping for a drink at a cafe etc., so being right on the corner of Rue du Temple was a real asset.

Room Tip: Ask for larger room.

The Hotel Duo, was everything I'd hoped it would be and exactly what I'd imagined it would be.
It's got a great location in the Marais, The rooms are clean and well decorated.
As many people mention in their reviews here the single superior room was a bit small, but fine for one person with plenty of space to put clothing away.
The bathroom was really nice too, with a nice deep tub.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
There are many great little cafes all around.
It's a great location for gay men, with many bars within a very close walk!

Finding a decent place to stay during fashion week which doesn't cost a fortune is tough.
Especially if like me, you only want to stay in one area. (Le Marais)
Hotel Duo is a more modern (compared to others), nice, very clean, comfortable and perfectly located hotel.
Yes, the rooms are a typical Paris size and yes, some rooms when facing the street( and you sleep with the windows open) will be more noisy. But this is true for every hotel in this or any other busy area.
I come to Paris once or twice a year, and I would stay here again.

There are cheaper and also good options available, and I usually go there, but if you want something a little more design like, with decent hotel services and don't mind paying just a little more, this is a good option! And nothing beats the location!

Room Tip: First floor, room 11, they said most quiet room in the building.

I stayed here 6 nights in early September. The staff at the front desk, breakfast room, and bar are all very friendly and helpful. My room though small and pricey was spacious enough and was comfortable, clean and quiet. The décor was up to date classic.
The hotel location was so surprising and pleasing as there are many nearby restaurants, shops and clubs. Also, you can walk easily to the nearby metro location and Notre Dame. I heartily recommend this hotel.
