Convenient location and friendly hotel
Posted Dec 12, 2016 on Hotels
Hotel Duret was a cute boutique hotel. It had a great location to the Palais de Congres (less than 5 minute walk), which is why we chose the hotel. Our room with a balcony was much smaller than the images appeared on the website, but as frequent European travelers, this can be expected.
The staff was friendly. I requested a kettle for the room and they promptly brought it. I did not have the breakfast so I can not review the food offering, but in Paris, you can save the money and find a cute cafe nearby!
Nearby there is shopping, restaurants and two markets to buy food or other items. There are also close bus and metro stops.
My only complaint is the cleanliness and maintenance of the rooms. The bed was clean but there were lots of marks on the walls/ paint chips, and all the surfaces including the bathroom, all furniture and especially inside the closet (looked like something spilt inside) could have used a GOOD wipe/scrub. For the price of the room, I was expecting a better room condition.
