Because I was unable to book a single room for the four nights I would spend in Paris, I booked the first two nights in a double room and then moved to a single room.
I arrived in Paris late at night on the TGV from Milan and found the hotel easily. The location is not more than 7 minutes walk from Gare de Lyon. The double room was a decent size for Paris; the view was over some rooftops. The bathroom was equipped with a (slippery) corner shower, a toilet and a bidet with room to move around. The double bed was comfortable.
After two nights I moved to the single room for another two nights at the hotel (much lower price). I was pleasantly surprised about this room. The room looked out on Avenue Ledru Rollin and the large dual pane vinyl windows, which could swing open, kept the street noise out.
The bunk size bed was not large but functional. The single bathroom was simple but clean. I did not use the breakfast in the hotel at 10 Euro because there is a very good choice of breakfast French style starting at about 5.50 Euro or one which includes eggs for about 8.00 Euro and up. (cafe A La Ville De Lyon, Rue de Lyon, just around the corner.)
The rooms looked nice and I noticed crown molding even in the single room. The only turn off was the lobby of this hotel which was cluttered with some cardboard boxes in the corner and magazines and newspapers everywhere. But there is a very tiny elevator. I would rate this hotel a solid two stars.
I found out that the transfer to Gare du Nord (Paris Nord) after four nights was also easy. Line D runs from Gare de Lyon to Gare du Nord in minutes, with only one intermediate stop. You’ll find that you’re not the only one on that train with a suitcase in tow.
