“The Best Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

It´s a very normal hotel the only advantage is the location. Hotel itself is not good to stay at. Rooms are very small, lif is smaller than expected and most of the time I had to use stairways to my fourth floor. I would recommedn this hotel only because is only 5 minutes from Gare the Lyon and some attractions but I would definetly look for another one.

Room Tip: Rooms are very small, so I dont know how to advise other guest to get a better room, I was not able...

I stayed for one night at this hotel with my son as We had an early morning onward connection from the Gare de Lyon. Everything about the hotel was very satisfactory and I would have no problem using it again. I had no problem finding the hotel when I arrived at the Gare de Lyon the night I arrived. I had googled it previously anyway. The room was small "Paris style" but everything was clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was just perfect for someone starting a long journey and the checkout was very efficient. I will stay here again.

One tip - there is a small Monop supermarket about 200m across the road for stocking up on supplies for any onward train journey but it doesn't open until 8am so you need to shop there the night before (open till 11pm) if catching an early train

My friend and I stayed at Hotel Corail my 1st night in Paris. The front desk staff was friendly upon check-in. The elevator up to the room was very small and a bit outdated, but fine nonetheless.

The room was as expected - on the smaller side with 2 single beds and en-suite bathroom and shower.

Features of my room:
> Safe: YES
> Internet: YES, WiFi decent.
> Power outlets: YES.
> Kettle: NO
> Work desk: NO
> Bed: Low to medium comfort
> Bathroom: Toilet, shower, supplied amenities and hair dryer.
> Balcony: NO.
> Water pressure and temperature: Good
> Fitness center: NO
> Laundry: NO
> Breakfast: Included, consisting of boiled eggs, cheeses, breads, yogurt, juice, coffee/tea

What I liked
> Good location, near Gare de Lyon, marche Alligré, Opéra Bastille
> Friendly staff
> Very good hotel rate

To Improve
> Comfort of beds

Conclusion
> The hotel was good given the price ($110/night) and very centrally located

The location is near rom the Gare de Lyon. I arrived late evening. As a first timer of Paris, I was a bit disorientated for a while. Gare de Lyon is a big station with trains, metro and RER connection. Make sure you have the address of the hotel so that it is easy for you to ask people the location. It is near to Jardin des Plantes where the Botaboat service is available. You can enjoy cruising the Seine river and it has multiple stops. The receptionist & staff from kitchen did not speak English as much as I want. Be careful with the elevator, as I had problem figuring how it worked. Shower foam was not replaced though housekeeping was done everyday. Limited electrical point.

I spent one nigh in this hotel and I was happy with my choice.
Basically you get what you pay for. A nice room (small but with everything you need) and the bathroom.
The bathroom was old and could be refurnished (the faucet used in the lavatory was also used in the bathtub.... really strange and not a good system).
The lift was quite small but for me was ok.

The staff was really friendly and helpful.
The location is quite good if you take the train to/from Gare de Lyon with the subway right next to it.

This is the second time stayed this hotel, we booked 2 double rooms for 4 nights. Double room is little bit small but acceptable. Last time we booked a triple room on the top floor, good view and nice room and with a big washing room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Simple breakfast but good enough. Very close to Gare de Lyon station, many restaurants nearby, very convenient!!

Coral Hotel is conveniently situated near the Gare de Lyon. Our room was charming (a twin room in the attic). The breakfast is generous and very reasonable in price.
We would choose to stay there again.
