“Can't expect to the room but great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Stayed 2 nights with my friends.
We got a room with 3 single beds. Room was okay, indeed 2 stars level.
Anyway in Paris you just need to go back to the hotel and sleep so this hotel was very reasonable for us.
It's literary in front of the Gare de Lyon and it was very convenient.
You can find many restaurants, pharmacy, supermarket etc etc nearby.

If you seek a high quality in a hotel, I don't recommend but if you just need a convenient place to stay, here is the place.

Recently returned (more than 3 visits) to Hotel Palym and am never disappointed. The rooms aren't large, but they are clean, comfortable, and relaxing. Great value for a good night's sleep and the location is great - you can cross the street from the Gare de Lyon and be in the hotel lobby. Staff is helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: I had a room away from the street and it was very quiet. Even had a balcony and lovely windows whic...

This hotel is just a couple of minutes walk from the train and metro station.
I had no great expectations as I've been to many hotels close to train stations in Paris and was very often disappointed.
This hotel is a good exception, the room are nice and clean (quite small though) and the service was good as well. And you get that for the price of a cheap hotel next to the train station.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay a few days in Paris for business or sight-seeing.

Room Tip: My room was at the last floor just under the roofs, hence quite cosy. AC unit in the room was quiet...

I like the area near the Lyons station, he is safe and not so expensive, as other districts of Paris. Everywhere it is possible to reach on foot or by the subway - a direct line to Louvre and other sights. The personnel of hotel very friendly, competent also speaks English.The Palym hotel isn't bad, but there are some negative moments. For example, they ask to leave the card - a key on a reception every time when you leave hotel. It seems to me not convenient. Single room extremely small. However, not the most not pleasant is also the main reason for which I won't begin to stay more in this hotel - in number Very darkly. Even one bedside lamp can"t to light such tiny number. For the tourist at whom day begins and comes to an end in darkness it important. If you like darkness - safely stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: in number with windows to the yard it was very silent

My second time staying here. Mainly due to the great location near a metro and Gare de Lyon (which I had to use). Overall the room was clean and pleasant although the double bed was a tad small for two. The room I had had a balcony and it was nice, albeit you are looking out at someone else's apartment. Lift was small but better than having to walk up stairs with luggage. Wish there were more toiletries though. Friendly front desk staff though I'm a bit annoyed that they will not do a restaurant reservation for you. I did not have breakfast there.

Room Tip: Ask for balcony rooms.

My family and I stayed here for five nights in September and chose this hotel for close location to gare de Lyon station, metro station and drop off point for les cars from cdg airport. For this reason the location was superb.
Hotel is a quaint Parisian hotel and was a delight to stay in. The reception staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. As we arrived early in the morning we were able to leave our luggage in the storage room safely. The bedroom was exceptionally clean and well presented. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting paris and wishing to sightsee rather than spend a lot of time in hotel room. Will definitely stay in this hotel again if visiting paris again and would recommend it

The hotel palym was an ideal location for the gare de lyon, but a long walk from the attractions of paris. We knew this from a previous visit because we like walking and exploring. The reception was friendly but our room was not as nice as last year. Breakfast was poor and did not have a enough variety on offer. They cancelled our booking 3 days before our visit, there was a problem with the card and they did not contact us. We rebooked at extra cost. Then they withheld 178 pounds at our bank, we paid our bill on the 1st sept for our two visits and the 178 pounds did not become avalable until sept 10th. Overall a disappointing visit.
