A quick walk to the Gare de Lyon train station and other Metro stations, this makes a great base for seeing Paris. There are several grocery stores nearby (Fanprix, Monoprix, Carrefour) as well as numerous restaurants. The staff is very helpful with many helpful suggestions. The rooms are clean and neat, just what you would expect for a three star hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms ending with 2, 3, 4, and 5 face the street.

The problem is that the rate quoted 'includes breakfast'. Only the small print points out that this is basic, contiinenttal breakfast, but that the buffet breakfast (which proved to be the only option oon offer) was extra - 10 euros each (not actually priced on thhe booking details), which is probably reasonable these days, but which we hadn't really wanted.

That said, the hotel is fine - simple, good location, we were in a fifth floor double room, very basic furnishings, good modernised bathrooom.

Because I was unable to book a single room for the four nights I would spend in Paris, I booked the first two nights in a double room and then moved to a single room.
I arrived in Paris late at night on the TGV from Milan and found the hotel easily. The location is not more than 7 minutes walk from Gare de Lyon. The double room was a decent size for Paris; the view was over some rooftops. The bathroom was equipped with a (slippery) corner shower, a toilet and a bidet with room to move around. The double bed was comfortable.
After two nights I moved to the single room for another two nights at the hotel (much lower price). I was pleasantly surprised about this room. The room looked out on Avenue Ledru Rollin and the large dual pane vinyl windows, which could swing open, kept the street noise out.
The bunk size bed was not large but functional. The single bathroom was simple but clean. I did not use the breakfast in the hotel at 10 Euro because there is a very good choice of breakfast French style starting at about 5.50 Euro or one which includes eggs for about 8.00 Euro and up. (cafe A La Ville De Lyon, Rue de Lyon, just around the corner.)
The rooms looked nice and I noticed crown molding even in the single room. The only turn off was the lobby of this hotel which was cluttered with some cardboard boxes in the corner and magazines and newspapers everywhere. But there is a very tiny elevator. I would rate this hotel a solid two stars.
I found out that the transfer to Gare du Nord (Paris Nord) after four nights was also easy. Line D runs from Gare de Lyon to Gare du Nord in minutes, with only one intermediate stop. You’ll find that you’re not the only one on that train with a suitcase in tow.

Room Tip: Some rooms have not much of a view, back side of other buildings, roofs, others face a typical Paris street (Avenue Ledru Rollin). Heavy duty vinyl dual pane windows provide a quiet room. A tiny elevator will get you and your luggage to any floor.

The hotel was clean and comfy. 24hr staffed front desk. The staff was friendly and spoke English (we didn't require it but it made things easier). The room we stayed in was on the street, not a sound from the street with the windows closed. It was a good size, like a medium sized bedroom in the USA. The bathroom was clean but small, but that was seemingly the case with most hotels we looked at in Paris. Our first choice was booked but ultimately I am glad we stayed in the Hotel Jules Cesar. It is a couple blocks from the Gare de Lyon and because of this there was plenty of dinning and cafes around. There was a supermarket right around the corner where you can get bottled water for less than 1 euro. To get to the hotel, we caught the Air France shuttle bus From CDG airport to Gare de Lyon and walked with two rolling suitcases easily. With a short walk we caught a RER train from Austerlitz station to Versailles. We left Paris for Arles via a TGV train from Gare de Lyon. The location was perfect for our stay. It is a short walk to Bastille where we enjoyed the outdoor market and caught the Metro to the sights. If you are looking to be in the heart of Paris and amongst the sites I might recommend another hotel. If you are OK with a few blocks walk and a bit of a Metro ride to Eiffel Tower, then staying at Hotel Jules Cesar will be fine.
