I just got back from a three-day visit to Paris to view some photo galleries. I stayed at the Duquesne because of the positive reviews and was not disappointed. I booked a superior room, which turned out to be on the top (5th) floor. It had a small balcony and a view of the Eiffel Tower. The room was small but typical for a Paris hotel. Quiet, clean and well appointed and with a well-equipped bathroom. The price was Euro 145 a night. Continental breakfast plus scrambled eggs and bacon was an additional Euro 11. The staff was friendly and helpful and all spoke English very well. The Duquesne is in a pleasant neighborhood, a five-minute walk from the Metro (Ecole Militaire). I was a little concerned that the location would be too far from the middle of the downtown area, but if you like walking (and if the weather's good), you can get pretty much everywhere on foot without too much trouble. It's about 20 minutes to walk to the Eiffel Tower, maybe 40-45 minutes to the Ile de la Cité, Notre Dame, Louvre, etc. Otherwise, a Metro pass will be money well spent as the subway in Paris will get you absolutely everywhere and the trains run every 4-5 minutes, if not even more frequently. It took me about an hour to get to the hotel from Charles De Gaulle airport, which was longer than I'd expected, so bear that in mind when planning your return.
