Citadines Bastille Gare de Lyon Paris
Ranked #805 of 1,805 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed August 7, 2006

I booked this hotel at a great prices using a timeshare exchange. I stayed one week at the hotel.
The studio room included a sofabed, TV (limited channels), CD Player/Radio, 2 Closets, Shower, Bathtub, Kitchen with microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher and various kitchen utensils. Compared to other Paris hotels, it felt spacious.

Positives:
-1 block from Reuilly-Diderot Metro Station and 10 minute walk (without luggage) from Gare De Lyon RER Station
-Air France CDG Shuttle Bus stops at Gare De Lyon Station
-Location on the Number 1 line makes visiting the Louvre and major tourist destinations easy.
-10 minute walk to the L'Open Bus Tour stop
-Convenient location for travelers going/to coming from the TGV or Southern France
-Across the street from a small grocery store and walking distance from a large grocery store
-Patisserie down the street has great desserts and bread.
-Laundromat nearby
-Free high speed internet in hotel lobby (1 computer terminal) with free computer printouts
-Middle class neighborhood has many cafes and small shops.
-Female walking alone feels safe walking from Metro station during normal hours (before 11pm/midnight)
-Some members at the Front Desk spoke English.

Negatives:
-No Air Conditioning
I stayed during the summer with over 97 degrees weather, so I spent most of my time outside of the hotel room. They give you a fan which helps with sleeping. If you have problems with very hot weather, then stay at another hotel with air conditioning.

I wasn't really sure about the area when I booked but this was the cheapest of the Paris Citadines as we were staying for ten nights. The area was good, clean and I felt safe even when I was a female walking alone. We walked from the train station at night and felt very safe. The Citadines was great, very clean and well equipped. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for 94 euros per night which in Paris in August isn't bad. We had a fully equipped kitchen, a large balcony, bedroom, large bathroom and a pull out couch in the living room that was seperate so easily used as a second bedroom. The hotel is secure and front desk manned 24 hours. Complimentary internet and a laundry room (for a fee) right in the lobby. Easy Ten minute walk from Gare de Lyon station which gets you everywhere you need to go. Also ten minute walk to a L'Open top bus tour, and about 15 minutes to the Bastille area, a very up and coming trendy spot.

Needed room early from overnight flight. Room assigned would not be available until 3:00 pm. Returned to area at noon where front desk clerk found me in store across the street and advised me my room was available. They upgraded me to a one-bedroom from the studio which I paid for.

Middle class area ten minute walk to Gare de Lyon if you are taking a train to Riviera or Provence. Take Air France bus # 4 from Charles de Gaulle airport.

Has small kitchen with all appliances, dishes and utensils you will need. Good for a decent breakfast. Terrific restaurant, L'Aubergerade across the street. Bastille market is great - on Thursday and Sunday mornings.
