We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of July as part of a family holiday in France. Good points included the location which is very convenient for the Gare de Lyon, the metro and picking up the open top bus tour. There was also a dedicated family breakfast area with a good range of food and entertainment provided for the children such as a pirate doing balloon animals and face painting. Children ate breakfast for free and also received a small gift at check in.
The room we had was fine for a family, one queen bed and 2 sofa bed singles, all very comfortable. The hotel is modern and clean and appears to have been refurbished recently. A fridge with complimentary water and a safe are provided in the room. The bathroom had a bath and very good shower. There is "magic glass" between the bathroom and bedroom area which allowed my 5 year old son to sit in the bath and make the glass transparent to watch the TV.
The only downside is the location if you arrive by car, which we did. We found finding the way into the road where the hotel is located difficult due to the roads around the Gare de Lyon. The hotel car park is a typical underground car park and is tight for larger cars, especially getting down to the lower level which was not possible for our Volvo XC90 - smaller vehicles would be though. At 24Euros per 24 hours the car park is good value compared to surrounding car parks, although on street parking in Paris is free during August.
