“Practical choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Surprisingly quiet location only minutes from Gare de Lyon for onward travel to South France and Spain. Staff friendly and helpful, room and ensuite clean and tidy, bed comfortable though room was a single and a little small for more than one or two nights. Good choice of local restaurants and bars, includng famous Train Bleu restaurant in Gare de Lyon. Self service breakfast at 12 Euro extra but worth it. Walking distance from Place de la Bastille, Market, Opera Bastille and River Seine, with Ile de St-Louis and Ile de la Citie (Notre Dame).

Room Tip: Would be willing to pay extra if necessary for a double room if staying longer than 1-2 nights

Was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Just across the road from Gare de Lyon station so great for that early morning getaway. Staff were really friendly and helpful and room was small but very comfortable. The beds gave a great nights sleep. The breakfast was good too and had everything you wanted - very filling. We had a ground floor room which was very quiet and as Paris was about 30 degrees the air con was a blessing.

Room Tip: If you have dodgy legs take the lift to the breakfast room on the lower ground floor.

This hotel is about 100 meters away from Gare De Lyon, but was rather quiet and safe. I paid about 275 euro in advance for three nights. By American standard, it was rather expensive, but reasonable by Parisian standard. The staff was friendly. You can take a shuttle to the De Gaulle airport, but you need to pay a reasonable fee.

A decent value for money place. Rooms are small - but that is to be expected in a place like Paris. The staff are courteous and the place is clean. The location is s big advantage. I was very close to changing my hotel, after reading other reviews giving a poor rating. Only lack of time prevented me from changing and I am happy I didn't regret it

Pros:
The location is very good next to Gare De Lyon, in the centre of the city, easy to find .. nice helpful multilingual staff ... clean rooms ..

Cons:
The room was in the first floor ... and the noise of the street can be heard and we couldn't sleep, cars horns, people shouting

We booked the Aurore in March for our June trip to France and even had the decency to contact the hotel vie email to let them know that our International Flight from San Francisco was changed and leaving 2 hours later than expected so would miss our connecting flight to France and would arrive very late but still keep our room. We also phoned the Hotel on our arrival into Heathrow and spoke to the owner to let her know that we would be arriving tonight at approx midnight.

To our dismay we arrived at the Aurore to be told that they had NO rooms left but had managed to get us a room at the Hotel Alexandrie which we found out later is also owned by the same owner who still charged the us the 180 Euros with out an apology or discount. Seems they are over-booking at the higher rate and sending guest to their cheaper Hotel. Also to Note this was booking was made through Booking.com

Oh dear!! This is the first hotel I have given a 'terrible' rating to. We stayed in a twin room which was too smal, poorly lit and depressing and had stains on the carpet. The beds were uncomfortable and the room appeared unclean (though this may be because everything in the room was so rundown).

Plus points
There was an Indian woman who was a receptionist (I don't know her name) but she was lovely and very friendly and helpful.
The wifi connection was good and it was very close to Gare du Lyon.

Whilst checking out, we were told that the twin rooms hadn't been refurbished yet and this is why they were in such a poor condition. However the price the hotel charged for this room definitely didn't reflect this. I've stayed in Paris before and I know it is expensive but in terms of value for money, it was awful.

Room Tip: I'm not sure what to stay.....sorry
