My first reason for the choice is the very good location (near railway station). But I found a room comfortable and clean, and cleverly furnished (lightening well thought). A very pleasant night of rest. I definitely recommend it!

Clean, great service, comfortable bed and right at Gare Lyon. They take extra care to make sure everyone is safe and comfortable during COVID. Breakfast is delivered to our room. The front desk people are the best!

We stopped at the Palym hotel with my daughter. And it was really disappointing. Of all our 20 years old travel stories, this was the worst hotel and most terrible staff. That is why I am writing this review. This is the first time I experienced so much bad customer service. The staff was really unfriendly and behaved creepily. The hotel is really small and the rooms even smaller and really cold. So after checking out, we left a couple of bags in the hotel’s luggage compartment. When we returned to the hotel to pick up the bags the man at the reception shouted at us to disappear immediately because of the covid. I went to the bathroom for about 5 mins, fillowed by my daughter went to the bathroom for the same time. I told the man from the staff that when my daughter comes out of the bathroom we will leave immediately. But he began to shout aggressively, barking and threatening. And finally, what’s absolutely crazy, he took all our bags and threw them out of the hotel on the ground. Then he said after returning to the hotel, that it is not his problem if something happens to the bags or if they are stolen. This is really unprofessional and terrible behavior towards hotel guests. When we came out to pick up the bags from the ground, the bottle of white wine what we bought as a gift, was broken and later we discovered that the lights of the Eiffel Tower what we bought as a gift went broke. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone ever! If you don’t want to spoil the impression of Paris, never stay at this hotel. There are many more comfortable hotels in the same area

Dear Madam KAPANEN, We would like to thank you very much for your comment, it also allows us to respond to you and inform our customers about your actions and behavior. We are very surprised to read you like this, we remind you of some rules to respect in community. The first is politeness and understanding. You arrived around 7:30 am and showed how unhappy you were that your room was not ready at that time. All our customers are informed when booking that rooms are only available at 2 p.m., as in most hotels. This is no exception at the PaLyM hotel. We have exceptionally opened our Lobby to you for 30 minutes as we have told you, which is closed to our customers until further notice. An hour later you were still using it as a bedroom in front of our other guests who knew this hall was closed so we kindly told you again that you can't stay here anymore and certainly not sleeping on the sofa like it was a bedroom or a dressing ! You may not know it, but we are going through a difficult time with strict sanitary restrictions, information that you probably are not aware of. Same as the day of your departure when you came back to the hotel to wait until 10 p.m. in the Lobby !!!!!! We informed you of the impossibility but allowed a few minutes to prepare your luggage but you did not understand that you could not stay in the closed space. Taking into account the state in which you left the toilets of our customers. A complete cleaning and total disinfection of it was necessary in addition to collecting the toilet paper and other waste left on the floor. What is most annoying for the person who greeted you is that you were apparently not very communicative, much less than on the Internet. Also, when you left, it was himself who had to completely disinfect the toilet. We fully understand what to do with your behavior and after asking you to leave the establishment, which you did not intend to do at 8 p.m, our receptionist has granted himself the right to leave your luggage outside, asking you to leave the hotel after receiving a pen in his face that you threw at him. As soon as he told you that he was calling the police, you went away out of the Hôtel. The entire Hotel PalYm team is respectful of its customers and your behavior during your stay and in the situation we are all going through does not seem very appropriate and certainly not up to your complaint. We remain at your disposal Customer Service Hotel Palym
