We stayed one night here on our return to Paris from Avignon as we were flying out from CDG the next day. I picked this hotel because it was close to Gare de Lyon and the reviews were pretty good. I must say I wasn't disappointed. When we emerged from the train station the Holiday Inn sign was clearly visible and we easily walked up the street with all our luggage. The reception was lovely and although the lift was a very tight squeeze, it added to the charm. Our room was very nicely decorated although pretty small but I believe this is pretty common. We did have a king size bed though so that might give an indication of the size. There is also a little foyer section when you first enter the room with a second door so if noise from the corridor was a problem you could close this off, (we had no noise at all). The view wasn't particular special from our room, but we did have opening windows which I like. The bathroom was very nicely fitted out. We had room service for dinner as we couldn't be bothered going out although there were plenty of cafes and restaurants around. On arrival the lady at reception was particularly pleasant and helpful. While my husband and I discussed getting to the airport the next morning she kindly gave us all the options with costs and travel times and when we decided on taxi, (a set charge from the hotel), she arranged everything for us. The next morning when we arrived down to check out the taxi driver was there in reception to greet us. The breakfast was probably a little pricey but we decided to have it there anyway as it was convenient for us. It was very nice. If we hadn't been leaving early we probably would have wandered up the street and found somewhere else. As mentioned in other reviews there was renovations underway and in the corridors the carpet was being laid or pulled up or something and there were a few cables laying about but we saw no sign of any workers and definitely no disturbances. For the price I paid 116 Euro, it was excellent value. The location too was nice as we took a lovely stroll along the river right to the other end of Paris. When we booked it was listed as a 3 star property, I think it is really worth the 4 stars it now has. Great value for money. By the way the bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in!
