The location was welcome with 4 of us and 4 large suitcases being only a 2 minute walk from Gare de Lyon. Very convenient to Metro and all Paris attractions being between Bastille and Gare de Lyon metro stations. Hotel itself is very Paris - older property, our top floor room was adequate enough, nothing fancy and a very small... More

We stayed here after reading positive reviews and good location to gare de Lyon, however were terribly disappointed. Very dirty carpets, hardly had enough room to move around the bed, the bathroom did not have a door, but rather a plastic accordion type curtain which was all cracked at the top, rotting baseboards, very noisy - could hear everything from...

There was not wi-fi the first and second days, small rooms and slow wi-fi connection. Excellent place to visit the downtown and the great places of Paris. Paying the price they ask, is not worth value

- The hotel is located near by metro & train station, which is good for transportation to your desired destination. - No free breakfast - Front desk staff are friendly - Bath area is very small - It is near by an asian restaurant where you can have a rice meal

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, check in and out efficiently. Room size and the bathroom is just right size for me, the shower box is quite small but everything works well. Aircondition, hot water, flat tv, bed are okay. After I read some review about how things went unsatisfactory, I was quite worried. Since the location is... More

Had an excellent stay at Hotel de France Gare de Lyon Bastille. It's strategically located near Opéra Bastille, Gare de Lyon train station & Place de la Bastille. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful when asked about different points of interest in Paris. Additionally, both the hotel and rooms were clean. The hotel is a wee bit small... More

Between the Gare de Lyon train station and Bastille metro stops, the location was excellent for visiting Paris. The CDG airport shuttle goes directly to Gare de Lyon. Arriving jet lagged, we dropped off luggage in the morning, grabbed brunch at one of many neighborhood cafes, and walked the nearby elevated gardens (former train tracks turned to plantings) for some...

The welcome by Cyrille on arrival was the perfect sign that our stay was going to be great! and great it was. He gave us a large room facing the road but surprisingly the noise element was not there. We had three windows and a spacious room, really very clean and neat. I think the hotel prides itself in high... More
