I usually find tripadvisor a very useful tool but in the case of this hotel it was completely misleading. My experience of the hotel was nothing like the majority of reviews of this hotel so I am very disappointed. I booked the hotel via hotels.com and was given a price for my stay. When I was about to check out,... More

Loved our trip to Paris, and loved staying at this reasonably-priced, English-speaking hotel. Right on the 1 Metro line, it was perfect. Great, quiet hotel in a locals neighborhood with nice restaurants close by. Also down the street from the Vincennes Castle. Highly recommended for those wanting to travel on a budget but not sacrifice convenience or comfort.

Very nice hotel - right in the neighborhood. Extremely convenient to metro, a small food market, and restaurants. Gwen at the front desk was phenomenal - she spoke great English, made sure our breakfast was to our liking, and answered all questions we needed to make Vincennes a great stay for us !

We enjoyed our short stay in this small hotel in the Paris suburb of Vincennes. It is very easy to get to on the metro and is in a really nice area.

This is my second review for this hotel and again, I have nothing but positive comments to make. The location in Vincennes is very quiet, and is in a residential sort of neighborhood.

Hotel DonJon Vincennes is a pleasant and comfortable hotel, around 10 minutes by taxi from Gare du Lyon, Paris. Located in a quiet residential area, we enjoyed the calm neighborhood which is within a few minutes walk to the nearest Metro (Berault) offering easy access to the sights of the city. The room was small, like most European hotels -... More

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
