“A convenient hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for three nights. We had our family of four in one room which was OK. Small but comfortable. Beds are comfy and the linen is clean and fresh. The bathroom is clean and modern the showers very good. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel faces the station and a very busy road which is very noisy. We found the room we were in too noisy with the window open and too hot with the window closed so we mentioned this to the girl on the reception desk and she immediately arranged for us to have another room at the back of the hotel which was lovely and quiet. It was also a bigger room so we were very happy. The breakfast was OK. The hotel is very convenient for the train station and there are plenty of restaurants nearby and it is within walking distance of Notre Dame, Bastille (check out the sunday market) and The Louvre. There is a metro stop just over the road and you can hire bikes at the station too. The hotel is in a good location if its your first trip to Paris. They will store your luggage if you are leaving later in the day after the check out time. I would say it is very good value for money and that the staff are very helpful.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room ask for one at the back of the hotel

I've stayed in Paris and lived in Paris over enough years to have a good idea of what's bad (small rooms, high prices, rudeness, dirt, midget-sized bathrooms). It great to come across a hotel where so much is good. Here are four reasons to stay at the Hotel Terminus Lyon. 1. If you are on a train in or out of Gare de Lyon railroad station, it is across the street. 2. Reasonable room rates, fluffy towels, really fast internet. 3.Lots of good places to eat within five minutes, starting with Taverne Karsbrau and Brasserie l'Europeen steps from the door. 4. A neighborhood in the 12th Arrondissment around the station that even most Parisians don't know about. Even if I did not have an early train to catch the next time, I may be back here again.

This was the first time we stayed here, but won't be the last. The staff are courteous, helpful and friendly. There is always someone on duty should you need assistance. The rooms, while small, are well-appointed. The room window opens onto a courtyard, and was extremely quiet when we kept our window open during the night. Nice, good size flat screen tv, beds are decent for a hotel (less hard than the Mercure across the street!) and have very cozy duvets. The bathroom has a very large shower, considering the size of the room, and is very powerful. Probably the best shower I've ever seen at a hotel in this price range.

The location is ideal if you take the train at Gare de Lyon, and if you have friends with cars meeting you, the parking at the station is a plus. You can always get a taxi when you need one and you have access to a number of bus and metro lines.

This was our first stay, but won't be our last.

Just came back from Paris and this is our 3rd visit to this hotel.
Their service has not changed one bit. Very good.
The hotel is very clean, as our the rooms and the staff very helpful and friendly,especially MMe.Bao
The rooms are normal by Paris standards however the beds very comfortable and you hear little or no street noise, a big plus for us.
Great location especially is you are going to travel as the Gare de Lyon is directly opposite the hotel.Many restaurants next to the hotel.

Clean, good value, enough facilities. This hotel is a great choice if you have an early train to catch the next day. Stayed in a few hotels like this in Paris and this one is a cut above the competition. Lots of restaurants nearby. Check in and checkout quick and efficient. Only lost a star for thin walls and noise from next room but that is par for the course in Paris hotels in old buildings. Great stuff. Will definitely use again.

I stayed at this hotel during a business trip in September 2014 for approximately 9 days. Room size was what you'd expect for Paris: small but comfortable. My room had a small balcony overlooking the Gare de Lyon which was very nice to have during the temperate September evenings.

Location was tops - just being able to cross the street each day to catch a train to Montereau was extremely convenient. Breakfast was more than adequate; the breakfast service was great.

The staff is about as good as it gets too - friendly, helpful, and very timely when requesting anything (such as a clothing iron which is otherwise not available in each room).

I will be revisiting again in January 2015, and am looking forward to my stay.

Bao and Laurent were excelent on front desk. Personal and informative. Helped and made bookings for us. Hotel was across the street from hub of Paris transportation system (train, bus, RER and Metro). Excelent breakfast served by friendly staff. Located in an old building with charter.
Found room and furniture up to date. The modern updated bathroom had no tub but a excelent shower.
The sound insulation between rooms could be inproved.

Room Tip: Interior courtyard room has no noise.
