This hotel is quite basic. Unusual flight of steps following outward opening door to a desk with very informally dressed guy- pleasant enough but not really a front desk. This is really more like a room in an apartment block- very few services. Room was ok, not huge but clean enough to be fair and it advertises itself as air conditioned. Ours had a dyson and to be fatr it did its job. Basic apart toilet with cheap plastic seat. Could be a bit noisy from guests thumping upstairs. So in summary clean but basic 2 star not 3

We had previously stayed in Hotel du Lion during our honeymoon. It was our first hotel on our trip, and we enjoyed it a lot. This time we returned as a family with our 1-year-old son, and we had a great experience.
The location is one of the best with respect to the price, in the heart of Paris, just between the 14th arr. and the 7th arr. It overlooks the square of the catacombs. There is a local market just across the street. The bus and metro stations are just 1 min from the hotel, and the RER is around the corner behind the hotel. Also, if you need to take the Orlybus, it is in the same place.
The hotel itself is comfortable and quiet, the rooms are typical parisiennes, but this time we took a big room since we had a child with us. They gave us a baby bed which was really good.
The bathroom was clean and cozy.
They also allowed us to use the kitchen and the tools to prepare and have some meals at any time.

The ONLY downside in hotel du lion, is the high flight of stairs that you need to take every day down and up to the hotel reception floor where you find the elevator (which is a bit small). Moving up and down the stairs with luggage is really hard, especially if you have a baby stroller that you need to take with you everyday. However, we chose to stay in hotel du lion even though we knew this before we went. The numerous good sides convinced us to overcome this difficulty.

Thank you so much Hotel Du Lion staff, especially Nicolas and the manager Nicolas :).
We hope to come back again on our next trip to Paris.

The hotel is in perfect location just next to the metro station with direct connection to the airport. Rooms are clean, beds very comfortable. People at the front desk are all super friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back!

Visiting Paris with my wife and two young boys. We had two adjoining double rooms.

Hotel du Lion is located steps from the Catacombs, the lovely lively Rue Daguerre, and Denfert-Rochereau metro station which allowed us to easily visit all of Paris.

The rooms were simple but clean and comfortable. Hotel du Lion is a small hotel, meaning we became familiar with the staff. We couldn't have expected better or friendlier service.

Breakfast is offered from 7:00am. Croissants, bread, yogurt, fruit juice, cereal, cheese, tea, coffee. Enough fuel to last us into the afternoon

We had little vacation hiccups when my wallet was stolen and my SIM card blocked (likely due to me collect calling back home to cancel all my cards). Employees went above and beyond to help me.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else next time I'm in Paris!

Hotel was very nice with modern comfortable clean rooms, but it situated by a busy road so at night it is loud and if you don't have air-conditioned room in the summer it's difficult to sleep. Service was very helpful, had organized Tickets for us.
Breakfast could be more varied, only sweet continental breakfast it's not for everybody.
All in all good hotel for reasonable price with good location just by Metrostation.

Dear pkwiat618038,

Thank you so much for your nice comment.
We are delighted to know that you enjoyed your stay, our rooms and our staff.
We took in account some points as the breakfast should be more varied. We could also understand the noise of the street but in fact the localisation of this Hôtel is very a positif access for mooving quite everywhere.

We sincerely appreciate your advice and we hope we could receive you again fro your next trip in Paris.
Best regards
