“Great value, friendly staff, best breakfast in Paris”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I always go to the Corail when I visit Paris. Its location, near to the Gare de Lyon but also near the Place de la Bastille, is great for public transport, and is also convenient for the Opera Bastille if (like me) you're an opera and ballet lover! There are a number of good, reasonably priced restaurants nearby. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the eat-all-you-can buffet breakfast is the best in Paris. My only complaint is that the beds are saggy and soft - tough on my suffering back, which prefers a firm mattress.

I chose the hotel because of its location, close to the Gare de Lyon and the Metro lines I needed to get to where I needed to go easily. These, in turn, had easy connections to the entire area. I stayed there for what amounted to two weeks, and always found the staff very helpful. (If they all knew English, as another reviewer stated, they are to be commended for their good-natured tolerance of my French.) I would and have recommended it to others. And I plan on booking a room there again on my next visit to Paris.

Room Tip: I had a ground floor room and there was a moderate amount of noise from street traffic, but it was c...

A good hotel for the price, very near to the train station and with very helpful staff. Many nearby cafes and restaurants as well as Carrefour, for necessities. Hotel provides a good spread for breakfast too.

A perfectly adequate hotel, well priced for what you get in a great location for almost anywhere in Paris. Yes the room was small, the bath was smaller than some shower trays, all of this should be forgotten for the price you pay. Great value for money. We had a room at the front of the hotel on the 5th floor so noise was no problem. If their was a fault with the room, it was very warm.

This is a gem of a hotel in the bastille district close to the train station. Staff is fabulous and speaks English. Silky (front desk manager) was absolutely amazing, they should give her a raise!.. Room was recently updated, very clean, good housekeeping service. It is a bit noisy on the weekend nights. We will stay here when we return.

Our stay was booked by someone else, and we wish they had selected somewhere else. The hot water was rather tepid, breakfast basic, and rooms unappealing.

Convenient to Gare de Lyon, but not much else going for it. Maybe OK for one night.
