Hotel Duo Paris

Official star rating:
Primarily called ‘Duo’ because it was originally created from two separate hotels, the hotel’s name also celebrates its location in the heart of gay Paris, and its warm welcome whatever your orientation.
The owners have cleverly married old and new, integrating minimalist contemporary design by interiors maestro Jean-Philippe Nuel into a handsome period building.
There are 58 smart bedrooms, and a stylish open-plan lobby that’s ideal for a peaceful drink away from the surrounding hubbub of the hip Marais, one of Paris’ most beautiful neighbourhoods.
The hotel is in a prominent corner spot in this lively district, in the heart of the city’s gay bar scene and a couple of minutes’ walk from the Centre Pompidou.
