“Holiday Inn Paris Bastille”
Reviewed February 13, 2011

Comfortable, large rooms, which is rare for a 3 star hotel in Paris, good design, comfortable beds, spacious, roomy wardrobe. Convenient location, near many good restaurants, Gare de Lyon, the Seine. A good hotel for the price / quality ratio.

POSITIVES
- Good hotel for the price range
- Convenient location for many subway lines to go all over Paris, walk to Bastille/Le Marais or to catch a train from Gare de Lyon.
- Efficient, clean, friendly
- Nice room
- Great bed, with various different pillows
- Hot breakfast (good if you don't want just a typical croissant for breakfast), but it did cost 16 euros.
- Free Wi-Fi. Some reviewers said Wi-Fi is expensive but it's actually free (the free version has limited bandwidth but it worked OK. Plus you have to re-login every hour; you can keep signing up with the same details again and again).

NEGATIVES
- Train station neighbourhood with few tourist attractions
- You have to keep logging into the Wi-Fi every hour
- Not the most "charmingly Parisian" hotel (but it is an unusually nice Holiday Inn)

Here for two nights with business colleagues. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and quickly booked in. My room was on the sixth floor over looking the Rue de Lyon. The room large and spacious as it was a suite, with additional lounge and television. Both the decor and cleanliness of the room were to a good standard. Room service was reliable. Buffet style breakfast was hot and well presented.
Ideally located within walking distance of the Train Station.

We needed a hotel last minute, and were pleasantly surprised by the walk-up rate (152 Euros per night). The rooms were very modern and the beds were especially comfy.

A perfect place to stay if both Paris and Disneyland Paris are on your itinerary.

Exceedingly comfy beds, multiple pillows to choose from (soft, firm) on each bed.

Great breakfast.

Friends stayed in the suite (299 Euros per night). This is not receommended - the room was not as nice as the standard rooms, and the second bed was only a pullout couch.

I've been at the Holiday Inn Bastille for 4 days in vacation in January 2011 with my wife. The location is great. One block away from Gare de Lyon (large metro and train station), meaning that you can go to almost anywhere in Paris with public transportation, and safely. The hotel seems to have been recently refurbished. The room I got was at the sixth floor. King size bed, LCD TV, good heating system. Room is not that big. But considering that you are in Paris and will spend not much time in there, it really doesn't matter. Mattress was confortable, as well as pillows. There could be some more space for luggage/ clothes. Bathroon was also refurbished. Again, sink area could be larger, but it was not that bad. Good heating system at the bathroom. Shower was new and good. My wife didn't like the hair dryer, that was quite unsual, but nothing that would make you choose another hotel. Breakfast was included, and very good, with hot dishes, different types of cheeses, and different types of coffees (Nespresso, american...).

I honestly cannot understand how there can be any negative reviews on this hotel. The value, cleanliness and location cannot be matched! The hotel is down the street from the Gare de Lyon and the metro by which you can get to all the Paris attractions in under 15 min, you cannot beat the location, unless you are staying on the Champs Elysees, in which case you would not be looking at this place anyway!
All in all great rooms, lobby and friendly attentive, english speaking staff!
If looking for perfection please be sure to at 300euro to your average nightly stay. However, for those looking for a moderately priced, decent hotel, this most certainly fits the bill, hands down

Stayed here in Jul '10. Very tiny room. No view to speak of. Bath tub did not drain properly, but did not complain about it. Breakfast was too expensive so had it everyday at a lovely cafe nearby (delicious croissants!). Walking distance to the Gare de Lyon station. Would we stay here again?...only for the proximity to the station. But all in all, cant complain much about the place, just that in comparison to other places we stayed during our trip, this was least comfortable.
