Stayed one night before getting an early train. Reasonable price for the area and convenient. Lift only went to some floors so had to carry bags up narrow stairs. Would stay there again for the location. Had a very bad experience with another hotel in this area so we appreciated that this one turned out OK. Not a place I... More

Stayed here my last two days in Paris after a tour of France with soccer team. Good basic budget hotel with an actual key for your room. Right next to the metro station at Gare de Lyon and good eating selections.

My room was on the 6th floor, the tiny lift only went as far as the 4th and it was a narrow winding staircase to reach the 5th and 6th floors. Furnishings were very basic and the room was cramped, no door to the bathroom owing to lack of space and the door to the room only opened two thirds... More

We loved our stay in this cozy budget level Hotel just recently. It is located just down from Gare du Lyon and has a few reasonably priced Restaurants close by. The rooms are of a good size and clean and due to excellent insulation quiet. Friendly staff completed a very pleasant experience.

This hotel has the smallest lift I've ever experienced. But despite that, the bed was comfortable, the staff seemed friendly and weren't fazed by us leaving at 0600. Ideally placed for the Gare de Lyon station.

I stayed in this hotel for one night on Monday 11 April 2016 before a business meeting in a local office the following day. There was a friendly male receptionist at the hotel when I arrived at midnight. Check-in was quick and the room was relatively clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a relatively busy location but my room... More

A good budget hotel situated just a stone's throw away from Gare de Lyon Station and just in front of the hotel, there is a subway access. Small rooms but comfortable but had everything we needed .. I would visit again :)

A reasonably priced hotel near the Train station Gare De lyon , just 2 minutes away, and the metro is is just 20 feet away. Small rooms at very very low rates, but the higher category rooms are good size. Courteous staff , and good location

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
