I was happy to stay at this hotel, the location is very convenient, next to the metro station and Catacombs. Easy to find restaurants, and the room was clean and comfortable, The breakfast was good. Easy to go anywhere, the staff are helpful and friendly. I would stay at this hotel again, and certainly recommend it.

I have stayed several times in different hotels in Paris. Hotel du Lion is my favorite friendly service from all the staff. Great location for stores and restaurants and transportation is right outside the door. A good breakfast can be enjoyed before you start your day of visiting the numerous sights in Paris. My stay was from July 22 to... More

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
