We picked hotel Du Lion as we found the prices relatively good for the reviews, and this was true for our experience.
The Room: relative to what we heard and seen online the room's size is good, nothing luxurious at all, but not like u cant move or put ur stuff around. the bed is nice and comfy, for our experience everything was clean and tidy, free internet, bath tub (no curtain which makes a bit of a mess after showering). For what we needed in Paris, a room just for sleeping in, it was very good.
The hotel is 2 stars, but it's better than some 3 stars hotels I've stayed in, in Europe.
The staff: staff were very nice and helpful, everyone spoke good English except for 1. They were really helpful and went the extra mile to help us, even wth our tours and everythg not just our stay.
The Location: The location is very convenient, metro station (Denfert Rochereau) right in front of ur door, wth different lines. U have a direct RER line from the airport, direct line to stations tht take u to Tour Eiffel or Champs Elysees, and many other places... there is also a bus station right in front of the hotel but we always used the metro.
The area is nice, wth a lot of shops, cafes, restaurants, a big supermarket, lovely french bakeries, Mc Donald's, pharmacies, everything... around, a couple of times we had dinner in restaurants right across the street and they were really good and French :)
Overall we had a lovely experience and we were really happy with our choice.
