Reviewed June 3, 2014

We did not realise that Hotel Duo was so central when we booked it. It could hardly have been more convenient for all the major sites in Paris, just a short hop and skip away from the Louvre and Notre Dame and convenient for the Batobus and the Chatelet-Les Halles metro station.
Like most Parisian hotels the rooms are small, but the hotel had a lovely lounge with a charming barman so we didn't spend that much time in our rooms other than sleeping and showering etc. The staff were very friendly and courteous and their restaurant recommendation was bang on the money for what kind of eating experience we wanted. I would definitely return to this hotel.

It's cheap given the location, and very clean. The staff is extremely nice (possibly the best asset). However the rooms are extremely small. No coffee machines (so I had to wait till 7:30 before the kitchen opened to get my morning coffee) and there are no irons inthe room (just 1 for the entire hotel). With that said, I would go back.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 5th floor (best ones)

Nice design hotel, great location, elegant and relaxed atmosphere, lovely staff. Not huge rooms but, in Paris, would you spend much time inside a hotel room?
We arrived earlier than check-in time but they gave us a room anyway. We appreciated very much.
Thanks guys for the great stay..

Room Tip: If you want a larger room book a superior, it doesn' t cost much more.

We just stayed for the week-end at Hotel Duo and we would recommend it for anyone willing to discover Paris. Major attractions are all walking distance: Musee Beaubourg, Le Marais and Place des Vosges, Notre Dame, La Sainte Chapelle, etc.. we even walked to Boulevard St-Michel and Jardin du Luxembourg. This is perfect location. Hotel rooms are small, just like most hotels in Paris, but the one in the back of the hotel are very quiet. Breakfast was perfect for only 8 euros per person.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back of the hotel to stay away from Rue du Temple and you'll enjoy the qui...

Dear Mister,

Thank you for your comment !
Indeed, we are in the heart of Paris. Le Marais is for travelers that already did classic touristics things and want to go deeper into "the Parisian way of living". I'm glad you appreciated the experience and we would be glad to welcome you once more.

The hotel is in a great location, a quick walk from several metro stations. Staff are lovely - they even switched us to a room that was already ready so we could check in 4 hours early. We'd only expected to drop our bags!

The rooms aren't huge, but perfectly laid out and spotless, with a delightfully comfortable bed and fantastically sound proof windows (a procession of drummers passed the hotel twice about 50-100m away, and with the windows close, it was only background noise - with the windows open, it was a very different story).

The staff were very friendly and accommodating, we'd definitely go back!

I stay at the Duo 5-6 times a year. It is my go-to place in Paris and I won't stay anywhere else! The staff is superb, the rooms are cute and comfortable (even the tiniest of them), and the location cannot be beat.
