Between the Gare de Lyon train station and Bastille metro stops, the location was excellent for visiting Paris. The CDG airport shuttle goes directly to Gare de Lyon. Arriving jet lagged, we dropped off luggage in the morning, grabbed brunch at one of many neighborhood cafes, and walked the nearby elevated gardens (former train tracks turned to plantings) for some lovely views of Paris streets. What a great way to transition from a long flight to the beautiful city. We had two very small rooms, each with baths, one facing an inner wall where the window did not open, the other was better with a view of roof tops and fresh air. The beds were comfortable and showers were hot. With the local cafes so convenient we did not eat breakfast at the hotel. As we were leaving via the TGV in the early morning after a 3-day stay, the location and easy public transportation made this hotel a very convenient, affordable option.
