“Great little hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This was a great little hotel in the centre of Paris. Great for a low cost romantic get away. Breakfast was good and views from our room were great.

The hotel itself is a little compact, but this adds to the charm of the place. Staff were really friendly and helpful.

Will be staying here on our next trip to Paris

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I've had several stays over the years in this 3-star hotel, the latest one being just last weekend. It's typical of this type of Paris hotel - the rooms are small but clean, with the kind of basic facilities you'd expect - air-con/heating, TV, wifi. The staff are friendly (they speak English). Breakfast has rather more variety than you might expect - fruit, cereals, cheese and cold meats, as well as the obligatory croissants and jam. It's on a main boulevard in a decent area. Very close to the Gare de Lyon. Apart from being a mainline rail station, it's a metro (underground) station on Line 1. Very handy, as you can get virtually anywhere you're going to want to be from junction-stations along this Line. It ain't The Ritz, but it's fine as a fairly cheap central Paris 'base' for your sightseeing. All in all, recommended!

We stayed for one night at the end of August in this hotel. The furniture and bed are ok. The bathroom is tiny tiny.The room is not really calm because we heard everything from the rooms close to us...
It was ok for one night not more!

Though its in the middle of the city it was a pathetic hotel. Rooms were puny and unclean. The water available was not potable and restrooms were terrible no door locks and very limited space. Only the television and location were the plus points. Bad staff, none of them spoke English. The common restroom did not have lights. This place is a nightmare for people who don’t know French.

After reading the negative reviews about Hotel Trianon, we called them just before arriving at Gare de Lyon and requested a clean room, with clean bedsheets, towels, etc.
We were given a small but CLEAN room. Nothing was fancy, furniture was ok. The bathroom was ok, just small including the toilets in, so not great for privacy... anyway.... our night was ok. The noise from the street did not prevent us from sleeping.
Can't tell about the breakfast as we opted to enjoy it at Restaurant Le Train Bleu in Gare de Lyon!
Reception staff was ok, polite.

We stayed one night in this hotel, in a room on the sixth (top) floor
Pluses - the room was sparklingly clean, and the bed was very comfortable.
It was extremely easy to get to from Gare de Lyon, and also very convenient.
Minusus - the furniture was tired, to put it mildly - we were in no doubt that the jaded desk was veneer-covered chipboard because it was all too worn away and evident. The bed was only a double and the room was very small - the pictures on the website must be of rooms lower down.
The television was in the wrong place - over the desk to the side of the bed, rather than at the end of the bed. It was not a very large television, either.
The bathroom, although mostly clean, was not for the tall or the less than agile - there was a tiny bath with a sloping wall above, and an efficient shower attachment which you had to sit in the bath in order to use. The temperature of the shower varied, presumably according to which other guests were using theirs. Having once sat down in the bath, it was extremely difficult to get out - no hand rails. The towels were niggardly in size and very thin.
The lift apparently accommodated three people - it would have been intimate indeed with three in there: it was snug with two. We were obliged to share a table at breakfast, and I would suspect that when the hotel was more fully occupied, you might well have to queue to get a place.

Very poor service, hotel in very poor condition, very unpleasant to be in and the room was a dump. The website is very misleading and unrepresentative. Doesn't deserve 3* whatsoever.
