paris: hotel duo

After an embarrassing booking snafu at Hotel de Caron de Beaumarchais (my fault!) we ended up at the Hotel Duo for our latest weekend in Paris.  Formerly the site of the well-loved and very affordable Hotel Sansonnet, Hotel Duo is modern, comfortable and centrally-located in the Marais...
Rooms are tiny, but perfectly appointed with flat screen t.v.s, ample closet space, and decked out in lush velvet drapes and grasscloth wallpaper. Decor in the rest of the hotel is modern, but sort of incongruent with the neighborhood and at times a bit chintzy feeling.  The muddy neutrals combined with bright accent colors felt a bit Ikea in the 90s. While it may lack some of the Old World charm of Hotel de Caron de Beaumarchais, the price and location are comparable, and the bathrooms are far superior- sleek fixtures, deep tubs and lovely toiletries.
