The room we had did not smell like cigarette smoke. The room and bathroom are not huge but are of acceptable size for Parisian standards. There is a stairwell to the hotel lobby but it is not arduous, well lit, and is (in at least faux) marble. We stayed on the 6th floor and we had great views of the... More

Clean, small room with great view and a french windows to sit in the evening sun. It's a bit to walk to the tourist attractions in central Paris, but if you like to walk or will take a taxi or metro it doesn't matter because of the good hotel in a nice neighbourhood.

As mentioned by others - you have to walk up stairs with your luggage to get to the lobby, rooms are small, and the breakfast is rather spartan. Location is very convenient and do not trust the google location as it is not where shown. I used street view to find the door at the end of the Indiana restaurant.... More

An ideal location for coming in on the RER from CDG and for central metro connections in a very green neighborhood of Paris. The price is good and I found the staff to be uniformly pleasant. Rooms are on the small side, but it's Paris, entirely normal at this price range. At the same time, this is an older building... More

I stayed two nights while attending a business conference in the nearby Marriott - an 8 minute walk away. I saved about €300 by doing so. The location is very convenient - direct RER from CDG. My 6th floor room was small but everything worked - except the telephone which was replaced immediately. The free Wifi was useful.The staff were... More

Just returned back from a 3 night stay in the Hotel Du Lion. We had a friendly welcome on arrival, all front of house spoke very good english. We were on the 6th floor and yes there are a lot of stairs but there is also a lift which works perfectly fine. As others have said rooms are small but... More

It's now the second time, that we came here to stay for a week in Paris. Close to Denfert - Rochereau and the famous rue Daguerre you may go everywhere in Paris within a very short time. The rooms are quite different, some small, others a little larger. The furniture isn't modern, let's say "timeless", and everything is well maintained.... More

Last weekend I stayed at the Hôtel du Lion again. It is a great place to stay when you are in Paris on holiday or for business. Close to the métro and the RER stations, the Parc Montsouris, the Cité Universitaire and the lively market street rue Daguerre (which offers ample opportunity to shop and eat out), the Hôtel du...
