Please go without any expectation. We just needed to spend the night. Arrived at 10p to find out the wifi is not working (which seems to be a frequent issue), hair from the previous guest were allover the bathroom, there were a number of flies in the room. The receptionist at night was totally useless besides apologizing respectfully. Spent night... More

Good location.Rooms were clean. Poor qualityin the lobby of the hotel. Wifi was not working. I consider it good for the location, cleanliness and the price. I recommend it to who is with no great pretensions to the hotel look .

I'm not sure where all the negative comments are coming from. All hotels rooms in Paris are small. Many have tiny and/or slow elevators. My room wasn't huge but it was definitely larger than most hotel rooms I have been in in Paris in this price range. Yes, the elevator is tiny. A whole family won't fit in it. Very... More

This is the perfect little pit stop hotel if you plan to make the most of your time out and about whilst in Paris. We had a triple room which was absolutely fine in size for us.

We booked two double rooms in advance, and arrived at Gare De Lyon station from the Charles de Gaulle Airport. The staff was friendly, and got us checked in soon. We booked this hotel primarily because it was close to the Gare de Lyon - Train station from where we were to take the TGV to the south of France.... More

You can almost miss the entrance, but once inside the atmosphere is warm. There is no luxury of space here, corridors are very narrow, handling big luggage is not easy. The room is very small but functional. I did not understand the pot to make water hot, there was no tea or coffee sachets. Maybe one has to ask or... More

The room of this hotel was really small. There was hardly any space left after we wheeled our luggage in. The location was good as it's only a few minutes walk from Gare de Lyon as we had an early train to catch the next morning. There were plenty of restaurants around the hotel.

Neighbourhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make their homes.
