After the nightmare at Le Halle's this hotel was a breath of fresh air. The welcome given by reception is the one that every gold Accor member would appreciate. The executive room is very tasteful and the colours give a feel of warmth and tranquility. The location is good and the walk down the river to Notre Dame in the morning was a sheer delight. On your return it was nice to have a nice cool beer in the hotel bar. The breakfast again was sublime and would recommend to any future guest. Again I did not stay in a standard room so I cannot comment, but what I do know is the executive room is well worth booking. Just one thing if you want to make yourself smile every morning just look at Le Train Bleu restaurant that is above Gare De Lyon station it is the very place where Mr. Bean sat their eating Langoustines.

Room Tip: Executive room will make you happy what ever the weather

I should start out by saying the only bad thing was that there was no early check in. They should be more flexible on this but I see Accor Hotels gives early check in to its elite status guests. I got stuck for 5 hours in the lobby waiting for a room after a very long transatlantic flight.
Now to why I rate the hotel so highly. The rooms are extremely modern. It even had a glass walled shower that at the push of a button became opaque. The towels were thick and absorbent. The pillows and mattress firm and comfortable. The room, a superior, was unbelievably large by Paris standards. It was also one of the quietest rooms I've had. The windows completely blocked out sound from outside and there was little disturbance from the room above.
My luggage was brought up to the room though you usually don't find that with this type of hotel. I spent 8 nights at this hotel and would chose it again.
I should mention that when it comes to food, you're better off at one of the very convenient restaurants around the corner. The metro is also just across the street.
It seemed to be a very kid friendly place with a separate play area for them, and when I was there the kids were about the only ones using the pool.
The maid service was superior. When I was late getting out of the room, I went to tip the maid and she said, "It's my job."

Room Tip: Superior rooms are worth the little extra.

Hotel Right across the road to the "Gare de Lyon" Metro station. You can get there direct from the Airport for 9 euro.. And as its in the heart of paris, easy to travel anywhere else you want to go by Metro. Walking distance to the Natural History museum.

Hotel was comfortable, breakfast was a bit mad, but did not miss out on any level of food quality.. If you there for the weekend, go to breakfast before 9am.. it was just so busy...

Overall experience was very comfortable and pleasant for our first Paris trip.

I went with my mum and my 10 year old and 8 year old daughters.

The hotel was very clean and the restaurant and foyer were modern and looked nice.

There is an xbox kinnect, and another 2 xboxes for the children and 2 apple computers. There are selections of books and games also ( but obviously in French)

During holidays and at weekends families with children are served in a desperate dining room with games for children, face-painting and balloon making. He even made a balloon Eiffel Tower for my daughter which was great! The swimming pool which was basic was a great way for the kids and us to unwind at the end of the day!

The rooms were fairly basic but beds were comfortable. The bathroom was very plastic. And basic and I felt I was in a caravan. This was the main thing that let the hotel down.

Apart from that I was pleasantly surprised as I had never previously stayed at a Novotel and didn't know what to expect as I know how deceiving photos can sometimes be.

It is situated right next to Gare de Leon train station and next to the metro. We tended to take a short 10-15 minute walk to the river Sein and used the river bus to see a lot of the sights. There were a lot of bus stops but couldn't comment on that as we never used the buses.

We did also use room service and ate dinner once within the hotel which was nice. Breakfast had a good selection but was missing tomatoes.

I would recommend this hotel to families during weekends and holidays.

This hotel has the best location. You can take buses to Effeil Tower, Notre Dam and other places. Close to the major train station. Staff is OK, not very friendly with the exception of Blanca at the front desk. She is just wonderful. During my stay she helped us to book our trips also. Rooms are fine as you find them in Europe. Breakfast in the restaurant is great.

Room Tip: If you are really interested to see Paris through trains and buses, this is the hotel. Rooms are qui...
