Great Location! The train station is next to the hotel. This saved us alot of time. The rooms are not 100% clean as i was expecting but i would say they are not bad. I would recommend this hotel if you need a quick access to the train station

Good hotel at a good price in a great location in Paris. Staff were friendly and provided some great advice on metro tickets and the local restaurant. Comfortable bedding in a good sized room. Adequate breakfast. The hotel was under going renovations but this was discrete and noise didn't start until 8am.

Stayed in October. Nice clean room, good size. We got a king size bed. Thin walls though. Could hear people talking in next room. Other than that, this is an excellent location if you have an early morning train from Gare de Lyon...about 2 mins walk to train station. We thought the breakfast was good value, 10Euros (ham, cheese, pastires,cereal,... More

Hotel Palym is very conveniently located just opposite Gare de Lyon station in a good part of town. The staff were very capable and friendly. Unfortunately I felt our room could have done with an overhaul. The walls were a bit dirty and it didn't really have any character. It also overlooked a dark, unappealing enclosed area with peeling walls.... More

I arrived here exhausted, which was probably just as well as I felt that the bed in my ground-floor room was only a few feet from the pavement of the street outside, which had a fair amount of quite noisy late-night pedestrian traffic. Otherwise the tiny room, adequate but limited breakfast, and minimal facilities were just what I would expect... More

I stayed for a night on two separate occasions. Primary reason for selecting this hotle was that Gare De Lyon wast across the Road and this location is excellent for a first timer in France, having little time in Paris before taking onward connections from Gare de Lyon.

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.
