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

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...

Mixed feelings about this hotel. The good part was the price, location and cleanliness. Also the willingness of the receptionist to help. Until we decided not to stay. Then the attitude was decidedly unfriendly. I had called to notify the hotel about an early check in (my team arrived on early flight from CDG) and was assured it wouldn't be... More

Really good placed. Clean, warm, well placed and kind staff. Hardly recomended!! Good neigbourship, lot of restaurants and shops and well comunicated with airports and places to visit (metro, RER and Orlybus) Quite in the night, but some bars and cafes if you want to go out.
