A triple room here was the cheapest option for our early train but we didn't sleep well because we couldn't turn off the ancient radiator in our room. We had to sleep with the window open as it was so hot so consequently had noise from the busy street below.

We stayed for two nights, the triple room was small, the wifi ok and breakfast the usual continental nothing to write home about. I can't say anything negative, but if you can afford better I would spend a few dollars more for comfort. The bathroom would have been the smallest I have been in. There is a lift which is... More

My husband and I have stayed in this small but very clean and very well positioned hotel many times before travelling early from the Gare de Lyon. The staff are very friendly and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Chose this hotel for a weekend in Paris. Basic hotel, good location very near Gare de Lyon. Very friendly staff. Especially all the receptionists (day and night ) were very helpful - suggesting where to eat, how to go, keeping the luggage (they have a small room for keeping your suitcases) on the last day, etc.. Free wifi and free... More

We arrived early and were allowed to check in at 11:30 am The room was VERY basic but it is difficult to find a hotel that has triple rooms,... More

Stayed there in February as I was taking an 8.30am train from Gare de Lyon. Hotel well located only couple of minutes away from the station. Staff very helpful. Unfortunately I only slept 1h as the hotel's neighbour were doing a party with extremely loud music! (Nightclub style with lots of BASS) I called at 3am to move room and... More

The only reason we booked into this place was its proximity to Gare Lyon train station where we had a 7 am train to catch to Barcelona. A typical Paris 2 star hotel - small room, even smaller bathroom, and the smallest elevator I ever rode on. Don't expect too much for your bucks!

A very cozy room to accomodate in completely. Enough space for a single bed and TV. No door in bathroom. Difficult to find the room cuz nobody took me to the room. Nice location and near to gare de lyon. A nice restaurant along side with turkish fast food. 2 star overall.

It's near the Gare de Lyon. So if you have a train south at six in the morning, this is a good place to stay. If you haven't, it would be acceptable but you can do better. Lifts stop at floor 4 1/2 etc, part way up winding stairs, which is a pain if you have luggage. Room was small... More

This is a two-star French hotel. If you are expecting four-star facilities, you will be disappointed. If you have more than one wifi device, ask for a ticket for each device. When we arrived, we asked the receptionist for advice about getting to Orly Airport (previously, we had flown from Charles de Gaulle using the coach to the airport which... 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.
