Stayed 5 nights. First 4 nights was in a triple room with my companion and it was great for space, separate toilet and bathroom (with bath tub). However, due to full occupancy, on the last night we had to switch to a double room. It was a building corner room and was crampy. The toilet and shower tray were contained... More

I stayed for 4 days in the hotel. Value for money I would say it is a good hotel. The location is the greatest asset I would say as it was easy to reach almost every destination and there was direct access to the airport CDG. The neighborhood is also very nice with local stores, cafes and food. My biggest... More

Good value for the money and near the metro station. Also very convenient drop off from both airports. Would stay here again. Perfect for budget travelers who want to save on accommodations and spend most of their money sightseeing.

The location of the hotel was excellent; there is metro/bus/RER lines near the corner. It is easy to get from the Orly airport to the hotel. The hotel is cozy, clean, even romantic. There are also plenty of nice and cozy restaurants, bars, shops and cafees nearby. The view from the room balcony was very nice. Excellent quality-price ratio.

When I have a business meeting in the south of Paris, I always book this hotel. It is a small but convenient hotel close to the Denfert Rochereaux metro and RER station. Easy to travel from the airport and to the south of Paris. The hotel is clean, with small but clean rooms. Breakfast is nothing special but OK. Staff... More

After 31 hours travelling from Canberra the Hotel du Lion was a welcome sight after exiting from Denfert-Rochereau station. Had to carry suitcase up one flight of circular staircase to reception where staff could not have been more helpful or tolerant of my poor French - they all spoke English anyway. Room on 6th floor (lift available from first floor)... More

Conveniently located with accessibility to metro lines 4 & 6 and RER line B. Direct line from Gare du Nord. Catacombs is just across the road. Book a triple and twin room. Very friendly and helpful receptionists. Room 84 has a view of Eiffel Tower. Triple room is very spacious. Cafes, bistros and Japanese sushi restaurant are within walking distance.... More

We stayed here for 3 days from May 11-14. Stayed in Room 35. No A/C, but nights were cool enough that we didn't need it. Beautiful view from the windows of Paris. Some noise from the street, but not enough to cause us to stay awake. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was small, but water pressure was great. Room very clean.... More

Loved this hotel, very clean and perfect location, we stayed for 10 days. We stayed in room 83 so we would have a great view of Paris and the Eiffel Tower. This room is the smallest in the hotel, but it was worth it for the view. The room was very clean everyday and the staff was friendly and spoke... More

Neighborhood Profile
Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the center of Paris this neighborhood has something for every hour of the day.
