Good location and easy access from the station Gare de Lyon, All ways exit from hall 3 where platform 23. At first it was difficult for us to find it but we got there at the end. The staff were friendly and helpful, even though we arrived at 1am. The room was spacious, simple but with clean bathroom. We tried... More

The hotel is the standard one night commuter hostelry. Clean and efficient but don't eat in the restaurant. Awful. The hotel is very hard to find from the station. Don't go onto the street because you will be dodging terrifying Paris traffic and walking a very long way. Instead go to Hall 2 and find platform 23. Behind you will... More

We chose Novotel Gare de Lyon for it's location (a few steps of walking fron Gare de Lyon in Paris). I have to be honest and say that I did not read any reviews before choosing it, but it was a good experience, overall. We've got a room right across the hostel, which hostel was pretty quiet that week-end. The... More

I live in Geneva and haven't been to Paris for years so we decided on a long weekend in mid-November and chose the Novotel at Gare de Lyon - the TGV from Geneva takes about 3 1/4 hours. The hotel is attached to the station and easy to find but it's showing some ware and tear. We were given an... More

Stayed here last month with husband and young son, rooms are adequately sized although 2 children might be a squeeze. Beds comfortable, bathroom clean, housekeeping maybe not upto standard as bed linens weren't changed daily just remade and although clean not spotless, so if you are someone who checks windows for dust ect you might have something to complain about....

Very good hotel, but the hostel on the other side of the street attracts young people that talk loud and shout even at 3 am. Despite that, staff is very helpful and installations are excellent. If it wasn't for the noisy neighbors, the location would be perfect!

We always come from the south of France to Gare de Lyon - 3 hours on the TGV is very relaxing - then stay for a night or two at this hotel so we can enjoy Paris before heading back to the States. The hotel is directly across from the train station and across from the Metro. Great location to... More

Stayed with 2 young children, and couldn't have really asked for much better. Service is very good - friendly, helpful staff and location is excellent for getting to all the main sites (either Metro or Batobus). Being by the train station (no noticeable noise in the room), the surrounding area does have a few homeless, but generally ok business district.... More

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
