“Perfect location, Great value”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

We stayed in their second hotel around the corner. It is a little noisier than the main building being over a bar, but looks out on the most Parisian street imaginable. When we returned we stayed on the second floor (no lift in this building so better if travelling light) which put us above the noise but still with that wonderful street view. This is the perfect room.
The rooms are quite small but spotless; WiFi is free and the breakfast (Croissant, baguette, jams, juice and coffee) is fresh and good and free.
The staff were all very helpful and the location is perfect. A couple of hundred metres from the RER which runs direct from Charles DeGaulle Airport to this station and the Metro is even closer. You can walk to Notre Dame in less than an hour seeing famous sites all the way.
The area around the hotel is filled with small cafes; there is a supermarket close by and cheese, fruit and wine stores nearby. It is a very safe area. On Sunday there are buskers along the street and a jazz quartet set up opposite our window. I could live here!
So if you don't need a big American tourist hotel but want to get the feel of the real Paris, this is the place to stay. Loved it.

Room Tip: First floor rooms in the Lionceau Hotel can be noisy especially on Friday/Saturday nights. Second f...

I m stayed here with my daughter (16). Impossible to find such a well placed hotel at this price! Near to the Metro, RER! Adjacent a pedetrian zone with snackbars, shops, restos and bars. One can complain about the little things but overall very good. Some of the reception staff a little surly.

It's an excelent place to stay, staff is nice and kind, young people usually.
Our room was at the annex at Daguerre street, modern decoration with nice painted walls.
Breakfast is OK too, of course it''s not a free buffet, but it makes it.

Terrible service hotel, cancel my booking without my notice, wait >30min at reception to get the room, no hair dryer in the whole hotel, lift did not work on the night we stayed, we have to carry our big luggage to the 3rd floor, poor breakfast! Feel that the owner a little racist on Asian.

We stayed 4 nights in October 2009. We booked one room that overlooked the beautiful Parisian rooftops. The hotel was small and charming with a very friendly staff and a wonderful breakfast each morning downstairs. There were bikes available to ride and short walks up the streets of Paris that were right out of magazines. My friend and I started each day with breakfast at Solar Hotel and would spend hours just walking around nearby streets having a coffee at lovely cafes, and for lunch buying a bottle of wine and letting a local cheese merchant (who looked like Richard Gere) pick out a cheese for us after we showed him what we had in our basket. We even gave up our last day trip out of town to just stay on "our street" to soak up the local atmoshpere. It was fabulous. On checking out of Solar Hotel we were shocked at the low price each of us paid for such a wonderful experience. We are planning our next trip there for 2013. Onie S.

We stayed for 4 nights at end of June 2012. We booked 3 rooms. We found the hotel to be good value for money considering the cost of Parisian hotels,the rooms were nice, clean and looked out over the pretty courtyard and Paris rooftops. Amazing experience
