Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Duquesne Eiffel Paris
Small, but cozy
Visited hotel for Easter Holidays 2005, stayed in a superior room on 5th floor with my husband, with a wonderful view and only 10 minutes from the Torre Eiffel and 3 minutes from metro.
The staff was very helpful and the room was small, but very clean and with a small balcony.
Would suggest this hotel to all that would like to spend some days in beautifl Paris.
Would definitely stay here again...
Having originally planned to stay only Christmas eve and Christmas, we changed later reservations to this hotel for our whole trip. Excellent accomodations, newly remodeled (small, but aren't they all?) - view out our window of the Eiffel Tower was requested and fulfilled. Staff extremely attentive and polite. Felt comfortable here with limited knowledge of French. Went above and beyond, even assisting in getting a doctor when needed.
Near Eiffel Tower, Invalides, Metro Stop (Ecole Militaire), walking distance to Seine, museums, etc. The neighborhood is a bit sleepy, and there are hipper places to stay, but we cannot say enough good things about this hotel, and we'll be back again and again.
Not planned but great
We were scheduled for another hotel in the area for almost 10 months so when we arrived to find out our original hotel had a problem and would not be able to accomodate us I was dismayed. However they sent us to the Duquesne. We were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are small but very clean and the breakfast was good too. It is a couple of blocks from the nearest Metro station and the neighborhood is very nice. It is residential but there is alot of restuarants nearby and a grocery store. You are within walking distance of the rue cler and the bus lines run very close by. I am very glad we stayed with them, it was a very pleasant experience.
Loved the View!
We stayed at the Duquesne Eiffel for 3 wonderful nights. We had a "superior" room, which was in the corner and had windows on two walls, one of which looked out on the Eiffel Tower! The room was the perfect size, and very tastefully decorated. The breakfast, which is a bit expensive at 11 Euros, was WORTH EVERY PENNY! Fabulous. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I can hardly wait to return to Paris, and I will definitely be staying here again!
Romantic . . .
I have stayed at the Duquesne Eiffel twice. It is a beautiful little hotel, very charming. I liked it so well the first time that I took my wife there on our honeymoon. I booked it well in advance, and I told the management that we would be on our honeymoon, so they gave us Room 55--in the corner on the top floor, with doors opening to the balcony on two sides, and a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower. I have wonderful memories of the romance, watching the sunset behind the Eiffel Tower.We found the staff friendly and accommodating. The hotel is ideally situated close to the subway and major tourist attractions--without being "touristy" itself. The rooms are nicely decorated. They're not large, but who cares? It's Paris! I want to go back and do it all over again.
Clean and charming, but the tiniest room I've ever seen in Paris!
I travel to Paris a few times a year and have stayed in a number of different hotels. The Duquesne is ok. The room was well decorated and clean, but honestly, even by Parisian standards, it was small! There was no place to put the luggage, let alone walk from the side of the bed to the bathroom. The staff was helpful, but not especially friendly. The neighborhood is nice -- walking distance to the Eiffel Tower and the Invalides -- but not especially interesting. It is an upper class neighborhood, completely residential. So if you like to windowshop, forget it. There are some decent little restaurants, but they are filled with American tourists. If this is what you want, then try the Dusquesne. But please don't go there with great expectations.
Just sooooo sweet
My stay at the Duquesne Eiffel Hotel left me with a wonderful impression of Paris. This was my first trip out of the country and I was very nervous. My room was a little small, but still comfortable, and much larger than my friend's room at another hotel down the street.
The hotel staff was very helpful and made me feel that I was being given an insight into Paris that I could not have received elsewhere.
Thanks for a wonderful adventure!
Almost ruined my anniversary
We just came back from celebrating our 2nd Anniversary in Paris. We arrived early at the hotel and were able to be accommodated on the 2nd floor. Unfortunately, the glass panes are not double insulated so you hear the noise perfectly clear. My husband is 6-4 220lbs so when we opened the door . . . he asked me where I was going to sleep.
We went downstairs to see if anything can be done about the accommodations. The front desk receptionist said there was nothing she can do. It wasn't what she said as much as HOW she said it. She was blatantly rude and had no customer service skills at all. She said the higher floors were more expensive - as if we couldn't afford it - how ignorant of an assumption was that?!?!?!?! At the end of trying to find a solution, she said there's nothing she can do for us and suggested we'd try to find another hotel for our stay.
Luckily the Best Western up the street recommended a great and spacious hotel "Derby Garibaldi" with the customer service you'd expect when you're on vacation. Bon Voyage!
Loved this hotel
I was extremely pleased with this hotel. I booked an entire package through ... and was a bit wary as this was my first trip to Paris. They told me it was on a lovely tree lined street in a quiet neighborhood with a great view of the Eiffel Tower from the higher floors. The people who ran the hotel spoke English and were very helpful. Breakfast was included every day and the bus and metro stops were only at the end of the street. Lots of nice, inexpensive restaurants around the hotel where it seemed mostly French people were eating- not too many tourists. I would go back again and again to this hotel and also with France Vacations who were very knowledgeable.
Quiet & Quaint
This is a very quaint hotel about 10 minutes walking distance from the eiffel tower and I could see it from our small balcony. It was also centrally located two blocks from a subway station, which made it very easy to travel to other parts of the city. The rooms were very nice, but small. The bathroom was beautiful, with marble floors and walls. A traditional French breakfast was served every morning in the cellar. If you want an easy location to tour the city from, yet in a quiet setting, this is the place!

Up at the most un-holiday hour of 5AM, (yes 5am, that’s not a typo) to get ready and make it over to Gare d’ Est by 6:55am for our train to Strasbourg. Ugh. Made it with even enough time to buy a pain au chocolate and settled in for our 2.5hrs trip. Jeff was watching the display and the top speed our TGV train reached was 320km p/hr! …
Well I woke up very very ginger in the morning, after the drinks the night before. Not feeling that great we did our final packing and was on the road to the airport before 7.30am. Was glad we did most of the packing the night before as I was very very dusty! Making our way through the airport was a breeze, as we arrive about 2hrs before our flight …
... avenue. This is one of the many streets that leads to a huge roundabout with the monumental Arc de Triomphe in the middle. To get to the centre, you have to go through an underground walkway, but I saw one family who crossed at street level. I was worried for them - but they somehow made it without getting run over! They found it very amusing after making it safely, but I don't recommend trying it. I decided to fork over 10 euros to go to the top of the ...
