Just returned from a wonderful half term trip to Paris staying at Novotel Gare de Lyon executive room (512) with two teenagers. We thought the hotel staff were wonderful, so patient with our modest French and willing to speak in English when we struggled. Would recommend hotel for convenience of location but area around the hotel may not appeal to some as the homeless/drunk seem to gravitate towards the square. Having said that we felt perfectly safe in the hotel and walking to and from it. Do watch out for pick pockets around the main tourist sites though we had the ‘gold ring scam’ and the ‘fake petition scam’ tried on us whilst we were there but luckily we realised straight away something fishy was going on!
Good points about the hotel
+ Clean modern room
+ Great shower
+ Comfortable bed
+ Helpful staff
+ Pool (small but still a bonus)
+ Great food and staff in restaurant - buffet breakfast and evening meals both great
Nil points goes to
- Area around hotel
- Room much smaller than it looks on the photo – how do they do that?!
Hope this review was helpful…
