“Fine hotel near the Gare de Lyon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

I stayed in this hotel for three nights. I really appreciated its being next to the biggest train station in Paris and its being really affordable.
The room was tiny but clean and comfortable, the only problem I experienced was a small leak in the shower. The bed was very comfortable.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Try to obtain a room over the first floor... mine was a little bit noisy in the evening.

The hotel is not that bad, but surrounded by massage salons, sex shops... so as being by myself in this area, I was not feeling that comfortable. PLUS, there is a free porn TV channel in the hotel rooms... Creepy.
The room itself was OK but not great, with a stain on the floor, and a few things were broken.
The breakfast was not incredible but OK for parisian standards...

Hotel Viator is located in a very central area, close to bastille and gare du lyon. The room was quite big (according to Parisian standards), was cosy and had a very clean bathroom. Staff in the hotel was very friendly. The breakfast was sufficient. Compliments for the orange juice with pulp, which was a lot better than wat you normally get in hotels. I would recommend this hotel for a short break or a citytrip.

In the middle of our visit to France, passing through Paris on our way from Brittany to Provence, we needed a place to stay near Gare de Lyon so we could catch our early train to Avignon. And we wanted to keep the price reasonable. The Viator was perfect for our needs. It's not fancy, but it was very functional and very comfortable. The woman at the front desk was super friendly and very helpful, helping us find a local laundromat (where we met some very nice Australians) so we could wash our dirty socks, etc..., and also giving us an excellent dinner recommendation (Chinese!).

Bottom line: If you're looking for a budget-responsible place to stay near Gare de Lyon, the Viator is a great value.

Room Tip: We booked one of the corner rooms, which is at the end of the building with wide-angle views of the...

We stay one night in transit to Avignon. The location was very convenient for us, because it was one block away from the Gare de Lyon, where our train departs. The neigbourhood was nice, not too noisy. The crew was friendly, the room spacious, nicely decorated in old style. The breakfast, served in a small place, was standard for a three-star hotel. The relationship prize-quality seemed excelent.

Room Tip: Upper rooms are less noisy

Great location near the Gare de Lyon, and easy to get from here to any of the sites of Paris. The rooms are a nice size for Paris (where all hotel rooms are small), and the bed is really comfortable. The hotel is a stylish old Parisian hotel that has lots of charm and character. Very clean.

My girl and I stayed here four nights and it was perfect. We wanted a place that was reasonably priced, clean, quiet, close proximity to the train station and close to walkable discoverable neighborhoods. This hotel nailed every single one of requests. The people at the front desk were amazing and helpful. There is a woman who works the desk that is a saint. She even let us print our train tickets and was very paitent with us. My favorite part was the giant windows in our room that I would open up every morning and invite Paris into my world!
