“Great Location for the Gare de Lyon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

A good value hotel very convenient for the Gare de Lyon. It was clean, friendly, comfortable, quirky and not the usual Holiday Inn.

We had a room overlooking the Rue de Lyon which was perhaps a little noisy for some tastes but we liked it. The hotel is next door to a sex shop but the area didn't really feel sleazy.

Very upscale Holiday Inn. Rooms are nice too. Try to stay in the lower floors (7 total) if you are not patient with the elevator. Small, slow and only one (one for the lower floors and one for the higher floors, but still very slow). Nice getting a very good bathrobe and sandals. Convenient located in front of the Rail Station, if you are heading to Lyon. Could get there easily in 45 minutes from CDG in 45 minutes with only one change of trains.
Personnel not very efficient nor friendly though. Internet very slow but free. Every time you try to get online have to fill your name and email, which is not nice.
Breakfast good, not great. Free bottle of water which also is appreciated.

Room Tip: I prefer a lower room to have the choice of using escalators if elevator is too occupaid.

A good 4 star hotel located reasonably central in Paris. For those that like a walk it doesn't take long to get to the main attractions. We used the metro for some but not all. The hotel was clean, staff helpful and the breakfast did the job. I would recommend for anyone looking to explore central Paris.

a good quality hotel, very clean, good service. The location is perfect, close to gare de lyon, close to the Seine with its famous places of interest. Metro and trains are easy to reach. The hotel itself is a nice old building, perfectly renovated. The breakfast is quite good, however expensive. Also the hotel is expensive, especially since there are no locations like swimming pool, gym etc. in the hotel. But the price seems to be high everywhere in Paris.

We were really impressed with this hotel. Fabulous location in 'true' Paris, within a 5/10 min walk of Bastille and Gare de Lyon. Safe area, clean hotel with modern, well sized, comfortable rooms. Great bathroom and all the amenities you'd expect. Free wifi throughout. Don't worry about paying the 18 euro breakfast. There's a great boulangerie across the road where you can pick up a fresh croissant or pain au chocolat for a fraction of the price! Also, there's a great restaurant a few hundred metres from the hotel - a la biche au bois. Go early or make a reservation...it is worth a visit!

We had a very nice room on the top floor of the hotel. We were there with our 2 kids and had a "suite" with 2 rooms, which was very nice. Staff was quite friendly. Only caveat was that our bath tub was not convertible in a shower (due to, I think, the fact we were under the roof). Close to cafes, subways, etc. Would recommend it.

Room Tip: I would definitely ask for a shower if you want one.

We stayed one weekend last year and arrived Garede Lyon from Geneva, a few minutes’ walk from the station to the hotel. The hotel is close to the metro and a lot attraction. It is a wonderful hotel; we had a lovely room with a great view and wonderful beds. Breakfast was delicious, the staff is wonderful and there is a very nice hotel bar on the ground floor. Loads of small bars, shops and restaurants nearby and the weekend was fantastic. Really looking forward to return.
Merci pour l'hospitalité merveilleuse et je suis impatient d'y retourner.
