We stayed here after reading positive reviews and good location to gare de Lyon, however were terribly disappointed. Very dirty carpets, hardly had enough room to move around the bed, the bathroom did not have a door, but rather a plastic accordion type curtain which was all cracked at the top, rotting baseboards, very noisy - could hear everything from outside the busy street. Was not located in a very clean section of town either. The pros: girl at the front desk was friendly and helped us print our boarding passes and also helped us figure out how to get to Orly airport. We didn't have breakfast there so can't comment. The stairs up to the different floors are uneven....enough said.

There was not wi-fi the first and second days, small rooms and slow wi-fi connection. Excellent place to visit the downtown and the great places of Paris. Paying the price they ask, is not worth value

- The hotel is located near by metro & train station, which is good for transportation to your desired destination.
- No free breakfast
- Front desk staff are friendly
- Bath area is very small
- It is near by an asian restaurant where you can have a rice meal

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, check in and out efficiently. Room size and the bathroom is just right size for me, the shower box is quite small but everything works well. Aircondition, hot water, flat tv, bed are okay. After I read some review about how things went unsatisfactory, I was quite worried. Since the location is near gare du lyon, I dare myself to stay here... It turned out to be quite ok. You can walk around 3-5 min to/from gare du lyon, there are also restaurants, boulangeries and supermarket.

Had an excellent stay at Hotel de France Gare de Lyon Bastille. It's strategically located near Opéra Bastille, Gare de Lyon train station & Place de la Bastille. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful when asked about different points of interest in Paris. Additionally, both the hotel and rooms were clean. The hotel is a wee bit small especially the elevator. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my stay here and will be back next year.
