My second time in Hotel du Lion. The main advantage of the hotel is the transport to/from the CDG Roissy Airport, being very close to the metro and RER station of Denfert-Rochereau. Rooms are big enough, clean and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. In particular, the lady at the reception is very nice and ready to help all... More

Need I say more? Nice hotel with friendly staff. Small and clean. All you need for a family stay in Paris. I would also recommend this hotel for a tourist visit to Paris as it is located close to RER Metro and bus-lines. Have a nice stay.

Ideal location two mintues from Denfer-Rochereau station Excellent value for money. Very clean, room small but ideal for a stay in Paris. Lovely restaurants around for morning coffee, breakfasts and dinner. In the centre of shops for clothes, supermarkets. Staff very pleasant and helpful. A top floor gave a wonderful distant view of the EiffelTower, twinkling in the evening.

Location is great: Denfert-Rochereau both for RER from airport and Orlybus. also rue Daguerre for going out Facilities are OK. Not big but at that price in Paris you don't find bigger. Clean. No elevator from street to 1rst floor but elevator afterwards.

I needed some advice on finding places around. Nice concierge took his time, made me maps and drew plans with transportations options included. He did it in the most helpful way possible, with personal advise on handling some aspects of traveling in Paris. It was so much more then I expected. Really nice. I felt cared about, genuinely cared about... More

Stayed on the six floor with a nice view to the Eiffel tower. Very close to the Denfert-Rochereau metro station. Helpful and smiley staff. The only concern was the way they handle the keys at night, did not seem very safe to me but there was no problem.

A terrific base of operations for an exploration of Paris. Literally steps from Metro / RER stations, you can get most anywhere quite easily from the hotel (including ridiculously easy rail passage to either airport). There is a supermarket and great boulangerie directly across the street, as well as numerous cafes and restaurants surrounding the property. Our room was clean... More

I only stayed at Hotel du Lion for one night, and it was a very pleasant stay. I would totally stay here again next time I'm in Paris. The location is THE best you can have in Paris. Less than a 5 minutes walk to the metro and RER station (Denfert-Rochereau), which was one of the main reasons for me... More

A great find. The hotel is very close to RER B, M4 and M6. The rooms are small , clean and have comfortable beds. The Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast costs 10 euros and includes cereals, yogurts, croissants, rolls, fruit juice and lovely coffee. You are on the doorstep of lots of lovely cafes, restaurants and a road of... More
