We were dazzled by the Palym Hotel which was conveniently located by the Gare Lyon train station / metro. As it was very reasonably priced, we were a little worried coming in but that was silly as it was a great hotel. We had four guests and the room was modestly sized but comfortable. The front desk staff were both... More

We needed a place to stay in Paris twice in June (we'd be travelling to London in between) and picked Hotel Palym for its price and location. LOCATION It was much more convenient than we thought, especially since we used the Les Cars Air France bus shuttle to travel to and from Charles de Gaulle Roissy airport. The bus stop... More

Like most hotels in Paris it is overpriced for the standard small room however we have no complaints as used for a stopover to Italy. Ideal location for an early morning train from Gare de Lyon. The room and bathroom were small however it was clean unlike some other hotels we have stayed in Paris. It must be one of... More

Small tourist hotel very convenient for the railway station. Basic room. No safe. Ideal for a night stop or tourists on a budget - close to metro, RER, and bus routes. Free Wi-Fi. Lift Basic buffet breakfast @ €8 {2014} Helpful staff Will call for a taxi.

I have stayed at the Hotel Palym twice when I was in Paris. The hotel is older but well cared for. Like most European hotels, the rooms are smaller but the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. When in Paris you should only be in your room to sleep and shower anyway, so large rooms are overrated. On... More

Paris was our first stop on our two week adventure and four of us (My mom, sister, a mutual friend and myself) stayed Hotel Palym for two nights. Having four of us in a room was a little tight, but there was still room for luggage and for us to move around. We had a small balcony facing the street... More

We spent our first night in Paris at Hotel Palym, as we just flew in from the USA and were headed to Avignon, via a train from Gare de Lyon. This hotel is very nice and a convenient location for the Metro, the trains at Gare de Lyon, and for getting to and from Paris from CDG Airpor. The rooms... More

Situated two hundred meters from Gare de Lyon the hotel suited us perfectly as we had travelled from Vienna by train to Paris. We found the hotel staff to be friendly & helpful. Our room located on the 5th floor was rather small but clean & comfortable with a small balcony providing a view of the street & Gare de... More

This was our first visit to Paris. This hotel is small however it is located next to a major train station and the area is perfect to get around Paris. Very friendly people. If you need internet, go around the corner to one of the small food shops.

I stayed at the Hotel Palym with several friends and thought it had a great location, just steps from the Gare de Lyon, and a quick walk or metro ride to prime locations. The room was clean, beds were comfortable and firm, and there were many cafes nearby where you could get breakfast (cheaper than the hotel). The staff at... More
