Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here for 4 nights while we were in the Paris portion of our vacation. The location is good being only a couple of blocks from one of Paris main train stations, Gare De Lyon. And once in the metro you are easily connected to the tourist spots in the city. The staff when we arrived were very friendly and helpful. We got in around 10am and they attempted to see if we could check in early though unfortunately they were fully booked. We were able to store our luggage in a secure place while we explored the city the first day. The room we had was a queen sized standard room with a fridge. To me it was a decent size room for two adults with large luggage. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, though I wish the pillows were a bit thicker. One thing I didn't like about the room is that the AC is not functioning. Maybe they turn it off during the time I was there (March). The room got a little hot and you can only open the balcony window with a small crack. They have a security device on the balcony window so you can't open it all the way. I guess to avoid any accidents from happening. The area around the hotel seems safe to me. But then again we were two guys. There are tons of restaurants and grocery/convenient stores nearby as well.

Dear valued guest, Thank you so much for this very pleasant and precise feedback shared about your stay in our hotel. Apparently you spent good time with us and in Paris and this is definitely for best reward that we can expect for our daily work ! I just want to precise that we're changing all our AC/heater system in the hotel in a way all the guests can manage by themselves to get cold or hot air. Currently we have to program the system to determine if the rooms will have heater or AC. As it stills the winter in France we programmed the system in heater, this is probably why you couldn't get any cold aire in your room. Very sorry for that. In these conditions it is true that you have to open the windows to get a colder room and it may be not very efficient with the security cable attached to the windows but you can ask to the reception to detach the cable if it disturbs you. In any case we're delighted that you've appreciated your stay and we really encourage you to visit us back later for a new stay :). Kind regards,

Hotel's Favourite
I stayed last week of May at the Holiday inn Gare de Lyon and had a great stay, First the hotel is located in East Paris in the 4th district ((arrodissement) 2 blocks away from a metro station with lots of cafes, restaurants and grocery stores nearby, I found the location adequate as we were using the metro to move to the different directions needed, but as reference, Louvre museum is 1.2 miles and Eiffel tower is 4 miles away I'm a Diamond member with IHG and did book the hotel with points but had to pay $100 Euros for an upgrade for a room that can accommodate 3 that in this case was the suite with the city view, we didn't mind paying the extra money, and breakfast was buffet style with a variety of options and included for us; the restaurant/bar opens for lunch and closes until midnight but we only used it for breakfast. Hotel is clean and our room was big (similar to US standard) as was the largest room hotel has, housekeeping did clean the room all days during our stay but as most travelers, we were leaving the hotel after breakfast and not returning until the evening, Overall I had a good impression of this Holiday inn and will consider this particular one as one step up to most typical Holiday inn, is a solid 3,5 -4 star hotel. Wil definitely return We particular receive a great customer service from Antoine, Thanks a lot

The barman is not a cocktail maker. We had 5 cocktails, most of which were ordinary at best. The champagne cocktail came in a normal wine glass, had no sugar or maraschino cherry, the wine tsted oxidised, and the martini was actually made with non alcoholic gin and we had to complain!! At €14.50 a cocktail we were not impressed. Dull atmosphere too.

Absolutely fantastic! A massive range of options at breakfast, a lovely balcony with view if you get a nice room, and a bathroom almost entirely in marble with a massive rain shower! Wipe down the bedside lights with baby/makeup wipes - one was a bit sticky. They also hadn't hoovered between the bed and the wall, but the main areas were clean. Lovely selection of tea!

Smooth check-in. We checked in to two rooms, which we requested in advance be close together. They were connecting rooms so very happy with that. Rooms were nicely sized and very modern and relaxing. The breakfast exceeded my expectations completely. It was very nice. The hotel is in a great location, and very close to the train station. Lots of nice restaurants around too.

Pro: size of room is decent for for paris hotel. Close to Metro and Bus. Bartender is generous in the pour. Room upgraded as Plat. 3rd floor offered great view of the street. Windows are able to be opened Con: 3 days of dirty towels, dirty bed, picture speaks for itself. Walls are thin and can hear the neighbor’s TV. Service desk has limited english and hung up on me. Paper cups in the bathroom when the placard on in the room says environmental friendly goal? Shame.

Overall this is a good hotel. Some don’t love the location, but I thought it was fine. It is more of a normal neighborhood versus touristy but there are still plenty of cafes and restaurants. It is just a short walk to the Gare de Lyon train station which was great for us, for exploring the city. We used RER, Metro and Bus and it couldn’t have been much easier or closer. The hotel itself if pretty good. The room was a bit small, but a comfortable bed, nice shower and seemed to be pretty quiet, except for the occasional siren or horn honking outside. We used points to stay, so it was a no brainer. I would like to stay in other parts of the city if visiting again, but wouldn’t be upset to stay here again either.

I chose the hotel for its location, as it was within walking distance to the 2 restaurants where I was booked for dinner. There are also quite a few other bistros nearby with good food, so it all made sense to me. On top of that, it's a short walk to Gare de Lyon. This is Paris, so rooms aren't going to be spacious unless you splurge. There was just enough space to open up my large suitcase so that was fine. The bathroom was a little on the small side, and the door could not be opened completely as it bumps up against the toilet bowl. Grateful that all the fittings are modern and looked very new, and the water pressure/temperature were perfectly fine. As with many hotels nowadays, they have a stated policy of helping the environment by not changing the sheets daily. I did not ask to change my sheets during my 2 night stay, but I thought they might have been. At least the used towels were all replaced with fresh ones, which should not be the case. I feel that if a hotel tells its guests about the efforts it supposedly makes for the environment, then it should at least practice what it preaches and not just pay lip service. I understand the difficulty of having umbrellas in every hotel room, but it rained while I stayed and I had to go out in the wet to buy myself an umbrella. I would add it to my "wishlist" for improvements at this hotel. Otherwise my stay was fine. Happy to report that I had no sightings of bed bugs, and everything seemed very clean - other than housekeeping's failure to take out the garbage when they tidied up the room.

The Holiday Inn Gare de Lyon is an excellent value and a great place to stay! The hotel is clean and quiet, with comfortable beds, a spacious bathroom with strong water pressure in the shower using either the rainfall shower head or the hand held shower wand. We booked a king deluxe room with mini fridge, room 402. It was very spacious with high ceilings and crown molding. Plenty of room to open our suitcases and still have room to relax. We enjoyed opening the window to the small balcony and seeing the street activity. Breakfast is served daily and is definately worth adding. There are rolls, croissants, breads, eggs, sausage, bacon, ham, mushrooms, tomatoes, spanish ham, a cereal bar, 5 types of fruit juice, yogurt, fresh fruit and a large cheese assortment. The neighborhood is safe and there are many cafes and restaurants, as well as 2 grocery stores. Most surprising to me was the Gare de Lyon train station, it's beautiful! Usually, I try not to stay near train stations because well, the area is usually not the nicest. However, this one is so nice that I would recommend eating there at the "Le Train Bleu Restaurant" - on the main consourse in Hall 1. Another nice restaurant close by is A La Biche au Bois. The staff of this Holiday Inn are excellent and we really enjoyed having a night cap in the quiet bar each night. This hotel is located on the right bank side of Paris, just outside of the Historic Centre. It took us 45 min to walk to the Louvre and d'Orsay museums. We took the Metro to Montmartre and the Eiffel tower. Metro is very easy to use. This Holiday Inn was a great walkable choice for us in Paris!
