The best thing about this hotel is it's location. 1 min away from the railway station (with buses to the airport), metro station next to the front door and a lot of sight-seeings in a walking distance. It's a 2* Paris hotel, which means that rooms are pretty small. Bathroom was very clean, although the room was also technically clean,... More

We had a triple bed room which was pretty cramped - just as well we were there for just one night. However, we chose it for the location as we arrived at Gare du Lyon at 11pm and just wanted to collapse into comfy beds. We weren't disappointed by the beds which were very comfortable, and the staff we encountered... More

My wife and I recently started a 5 week trip to France and Berlin with 3 nights in Hotel Helvetia. We were looking for an economical hotel that would allow us to see the city and re-set our body-clocks and Hotel Helvetia was excellent for that with a large, comfortable bed. The hotel is in a central location, close to... More

We stayed at the Hotel Helvetia for one night in March 2010. We had a room on the second floor which had a balcony. The room was clean and the receptionist spoke good English. Our room overlooked a busy road and there was traffic noise until late at night and again from early the next morning. However, with most hotels... More

We were at Hotel Helvetia for 3 nights. The crew are really friendly with fluent english. The hotel is relatively small (regarding the french hotel sizes is not), but so clean. The room had enough space for two, it was cleaned up every day. Our room was quiet in the night, if we opened the window, some noise came in,... More

We are 30-something discerning hotel stayers who spent one night at Hotel Helvetia during our honeymoon in October 2008. We have mixed feelings about the hotel but, overall, it was good budget accommodation and value for money so we would recommend it to those with a similar requirement to us; that is, a hotel that is close to Gare de...

Booked the Helvetia for one night purely because of the location: we had an early train from Gare de Lyon next morning. The hotel was what we expected - no nasty surprises, just a good 2 star property. Our room was clean and comfortable and the reception staff were pleasant. We did not have breakfast in the hotel - went... More

I spent one night in this hotel. I choose to stay here due to the proximity of the hotel to Gare de Lyon as I had an early morning train to catch. It is just a few steps away from Gare de Lyon and so is very convenient if you have a train to catch. In addition I believe a... More

I recently stayed at the Helvetia Hotel in Paris. It is a basic hotel - staff not all that friendly if you are not French but helpful enough. The big thing was location,location, location. The Gare de Lyon metro station is about 10 steps away so that was a big bonus for me. The hotel room was clean and with... More

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.
