Pros: Rooms are clean and furnished to the recent, brown Novotel aesthetic, complete with transparent-to-translucent shower wall. Toiletry brand was changed halfway through my trip, though I prefer the older, fair trade items. Staff is well trained like all Accor properties I've used. Gare de Lyon location convenient for multiple train lines, including RER-A. Visible in-house security was appreciated.
Cons: My room never got cooler than 22C, even with the A/C on maximum and checked by staff. The common areas look a bit tired and were very warm. The fitness center could use an update as well. The Place Henri Frenay was fine during the day, but attracted homeless people and petty crime at night, including one robbery I could hear from my open window.More
