“Best Location in Paris :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Paris is not so easy for people... Specially the in-city metro is a little complicated. But the hotel MERCURE - GARE DE LYON has a spectacular location. I was in Paris for 3 days & it was very easy for me to commute to Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum & Monte Marte. The hotel rooms were not too spacious but the very comfortable. The bed was amazing and breakfast was icing on the cake. I highly recommend this HOTEL for not so frequent travelers to Paris.

Dear Guest
A real thank you for your feed back regarding your stay in Paris with us.
When you arrive in a city like Paris it's true that the transportation facilities are important and also to be closed of the major attractions.
As you mentionned the bed is one of the best quality in its category and our Buffet Breakfast has a lot of choices.
Thank you again for your attention
Best regards

Disappointing, priced as a 4 star hotel but tiny room and threadbare towels makes the reality of the stay - despite the hype - more like one of the Accor lesser brands, the Ibis. The Novotel on the other side of the Gare de Lyon is a much better value. Staff were great, no problems there, but the hotel needs a renovation to upgrade the rooms to match the prices.

It's located adjacent to the Gare de Lyon so is very convenient if you are arriving/leaving at this station. It's not a bad hotel, but it's rather pricy for a station "Terminus" hotel, and (certainly on the lower bedroom floor) you can feel the rumbling of the trains beneath. Here's a tip -- they ask €17 for a breakfast, but 10 seconds' walk outside the front door gets you to the "Express Bleu" restaurant in the station, where the standard French breakfast is only €9.20. Incidentally the "Train Bleu" restaurant above the Express Bleu is very good, although expensive.

Room Tip: High level room might avoid train rumble.

Stayed one night in August 2012 on a GRJ holiday. The hotel is basically part of the Gare de Lyon building, and the platforms are less than one minute's walk away. The hotel is a good, comfortable example of the Mercure chain. Our room was of standard size and quite comfortable - good bed At the back overlooking the station roof but who cares for one night? The restaurant was being extensively refurbished when we were there so some disruption, but they had a very good breakfast ready for our group early departure. We stayed there during a heatwave but the inside of the building was comfortably cool.

For dinner, there are plenty of restaurants and bistros nearby but you may wish to eat in Le Train Bleu restaurant, also part of the Gare de Lyon. This is a must do experience while in this part of Paris (see Tripadvisor reviews). The River Seine and Notre Dame are also handy.

Next to the Gare de Lyon railway walking pass, two minutes from you get out of the coach upon your arrival at the station, this hotel is very convenient for a business stay. Clean, modern, pleasant staff. brekafast espansive 18euros -not included in the room charge but the hotel serves a complimentary coffee buffet from 4.00AM to 6:30AM for early check outers.

The title says it all. We had a "superior" room for our overnight stay but it was so small that I queried its superiority with the receptionist and yes, that was a superior room. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and with a good breakfast so fine for an overnight - but not cheap. Looking back at my e-mails, we had a standard room the same date last year and that was definitley larger.

Thank you for your comments and as you mentionned we have two different categories of rooms.
It's more the equipment in the Privilege room as large TV screen, Nespresso machine, music station for I phone, ... than the surface.
Next time you can try it and I am sure you will enjoy the quality and services.

This hotel is conveniently located right next to Gare du Lyon and the Metro and even with the hub of activity around it - provides a quiet oasis. The decor in the lobby is calming, serene and spacious with lots of natural light. The bedroom - stayed in a preferred club room - had amenities, not very big but well laid out and was very clean. Rate we had offered breakfast and it offered tons of options - great way to start the day Staff at the restaurant very courteous. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
