A clean and handy hotel to stay for 4days. Really needed to have a bar fridge in room and kettle. Facility is available but on the ground floor. Handy to Gard de Lyon train station and local metro. The guys really helpful and friendly. Speak good English. Good for a short stay.

Stayed for 2 nights at Palym. I suppose I had the room with the least pleasant view of a small cour at the first floor. But other than that, what the hotel provided truly satisfy and surpass my expectations. The bathroom is spacious and clean. Air condition works perfectly well. Microwave and hot water pot is just near the reception... More

Very nice Hotel near Metro and Parking. Very good quality for a reasonable price, Frendly staff and nice and clean room with good beds and proper bathroom. The aircondition was briljant. The location is near a metro station (Gare de Lyon an a carpark. Nice restaurants nearby.

Cheap, great value and 2min walk from Gare de Lyon. The air conditionner was perfect during this hot summer. With a reception desk open 24/24 you cannot ask more for this price. The beds are ok but the room is a bit small. If you need a stop between two trains or a bed to fall after a party, this... More

We arrived at the Gare de Lyon, so this 'elegant' hotel was easy to find, and easy to get to. Staff at reception were helpful. Breakfast was self-service. Daily newspapers were on offer. Luggage could be deposited. The room was clean and comfortable, with a modern adjoining bathroom, and it even had a balcony and a nice view. Wifi was... More

Great location for travelling to Spain by rail as you are literally 2 mins from Gare de Lyon, very clean and unbelievably quiet. Plenty of cafes and restaurants very close by. We are staying here on the return leg of our journey so we at least know we're going to be comfortable.

Cannot say enough nice things about this little 2 star reasonably priced hotel that is a five minute walk from the Paris-Gare de Lyon and Paris Metro. Wonderful front desk staff (many speak English), clean and safe area. Several cafes in the area for morning beverage and croissant. One caution, if you need a shuttle to airport use the Air... More

Traveled to Paris in early June 2015 with family of four. Our room was located on the 5th floor and was spacey for the four of us. Nice balcony view of the street and of Gare de Lyon train station. Being close to the Gare de Lyon station made very convenient for us, toured around city on train. Make sure... More

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.
