Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Duo Axial Beaubourg Paris
Decent value (for Paris!), great locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed in a superior room on the first floor which was contemporary, spacious and nicely furnished with exposed beams and a perfectly adequate bathroom. Staff are very friendly and it's nicely air-conditioned.
Can't comment on the breakfast because, quite frankly, you'd be crazy not to leave the hotel for food. The hotel's big strength is its location and you're in the heart of the city, an easy stroll from numerous cafes, restaurants and bars.
Location is also the one, very minor, downside. Le Marais is a buzzy part of Paris that attracts people into the wee small hours. We didn't find it too intrusive, but you will hear street noise in this hotel.
Overall though, being in Le Marais has many more positives than negatives if you're in Paris for the weekend. It's the one part of the city that stays truly open for business on a Sunday and is a simple walk from so much of this great city. We only used the Metro twice all weekend, to get to and from Gare du Nord.
Great location, clean and modernfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Breakfast was nice but not 11 euro worth - I recommend going to one of the dozens of 'salon de the' or patisseries in the area.
For a couple who enjoy nothing more than strolling round streets and finding little art galleries and other interesting shops and restaurants, you can't beat the Marais. Perfect Paris.
Great location - Pleasant stafffrom unsolicited
Hardly any noise from outside, but it's possible that you may get disturbed by the neighbouring rooms as the soundproofing could be better. Not a problem during our stay.
Air conditioning effective and quiet enough.
Desk staff always polite and friendly. Continental breakfast at 11 EUR fine, but maybe a little pricey.
The only downside for us was that Hotel de Ville metro is currently closed for refurbishment, so there was more walking than ideal.
We will probably return.
Outstanding location and good valuefrom Loco2Go
A few notes of caution... Bring earplugs in case you get a room facing the inner courtyard: it has an adjoining restaurant that likes to make a lot of noise very early in the morning (unfortunately, lack of soundproofing in these historic buildings converted to hotels is another norm for the Marais). This hotel would be a bad choice for homophobes, as there are several gay bars nearby (the hotel itself attracts a diverse, upscale crowd and the greater Marais area is similar in diversity as Greenwich Village). There is Internet access in the lobby, breakfast in the wine cellar, and a concierge, but there is no restaurant and no room service. However, scores of restaurants beginning immediately across the street make up for the shortcomings.
Great Hotel in Super Locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The Price were also reasonable for the location. I have stayed in cheaper hotels in paris but would stay here again without a doubt !
One point to note is that The Marais is a mostly Gay area and some of the bars / nightclubs in the area are strictly gay which is something to be aware of.
Ideal stayfrom mambobean
Beyond the room, the staff were helpful and friendly -- humoring my really poor French and cheerfully making up the difference in English as needed. The location was great -- not just for a gay couple but for anyone wanting to revel in the feeling of romantic Paris from years past. The hotel is a block from the Hotel de Ville metro and not much further from the Seine (you can walk to the two Iles easily). Rue St. Croix de Bretonairre is the next street up from the hotel and it's lovely (with a killer boulangerie on the corner of Temple), plus it leads to the shops and cafes of Rue Vielle du Temple which runs somewhat parallel to Rue Temple a few blocks over.
We would go back in a heartbeat.
depends on your prioritiesfrom marchcot

Top Local Tips for Paris
Subway is fine, BUT... The Metro is wonderful, but getting to and from the airport will entail going up and down several sets of stairs, so if lifting luggage is a problem, take the Air France to the closest spot, then taxi to the hotel, or take a taxi from the airport ( not too much price difference when its totalled). Don't take taxi to front door, but get dropped at bottom of the street (its one way, but hotel is only a block in)-otherwise you double the taxi cost.
Georges Go and have an afternoon cocktail at Georges on top of The Pompidu Centre.
Paris Metro Buy a 'Carnet' (a book of 10 train tickets) this is in my opinion, the most cost effective way of getting around Paris. The cost is 11 Euros and each ticket entitles you to travel anywhere in the Paris region. The metro is very well served with logical layouts and route numbers. The tickets can also be used on the bus routes and the regional train routes.
