I find Hotel Palym reasonably priced for its close proximity to Gare de Lyon - approximately 5min walk. We arrived way ahead of check-in time but the staff at the reception desk was friendly and offered to keep our luggages while we roam the streets of Paris until then. As we are travelling as a family of 3, we got... More

Stayed at the Hotel Palym for one lovely night in Paris with the wife while taking a train adventure through Europe.

This little hotel is outstanding when you compare the rates in the neighborhood... As we had a company dinner in the area and as I arrived by train it was very convenient. Less than 5 minutes walk to the train station Gare de Lyon, which is the train station for trains going South, pretty central in the South Eastern center... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Palym Hotel. The location is perfectly located right across the street from the Gare de Lyon train station which means the metro stop is also centrally located and one of the main hubs so easy to get anywhere. The Gare de Lyon station is beautiful so your view from this hotel is amazing.... More

We wanted to be close to Gare de Lyon and Hotel Palym gave us this and more. Clean, big comfortable bed, quiet, friendly reception staff. We declined their breakfast opting for Cafe des Savoies around the corner. Delicious coffee and croissant with the locals for a few euros. I'd recommend this hotel for a short stay in this neighborhood.

This hotel is a good 2/3 star hotel in an extremely convenient location next to the Gare de Lyon. I only stayed one night. The room, whilst on the small side, was comfortable enough, but I couldn't get the aircon to work. The staff were friendly and efficient. Particularly useful was the option to leave your luggage for later pickup... More

Don't need to look far from Gare de Lyon station for the hotel as it is literally a stone throw away from it. To be honest, it needs a face lift (as per other postings), however that said, inside was clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room on the 2nd floor was small but extremely clean...

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.
