“Practically in the station”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

If you dont want to travel another step just come out of the station , and there it is. We have never paid the going room rate at a Mercure (by bargain hunting) and generally been offered an upgrade on arrival. No disappointment this time. Sometimes you dont need "character" - very comfortable, spotless, quiet and restful. Helpful staff and an efficient check in/out. One thing - breakfast is very expensive but if you go for the Express option its half the price.

Dear Rosemary,

I'm glad to read that you enjoyed an upgrade for your stay at Mercure Paris Gare de Lyon, no matter the price you paid. We do have the best promotion on our website if you book early enough, and every day we make a gift to a few guest as a warm welcome and an upgrade in our comfortable Privilège rooms.

Thank you for the good tip, with the Express Breakfast served at the bar, for sure this is a good option for those that do not want the full breakfast but just coffee / croissant /orange juice at competitive 8.5€.

Kind regards

For those who need to stay near Gare de Lyon this is an excelent option.
The hotel is right beside the train station.
The lobby is well decorated and rooms were also renovated. They are small, but very good.
Internet is free and works very well.
The hotel provides safe box to keep your luggage up to 24h - very convenient if you want/need walk around Paris for a day.

Thank you for your comment and I'm happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you mention it, the location of the hotel is great, very central as you can go in most of the main points of interests with direct RER A (La Defense, the Champs Elysees, Opera and its shopping malls, Disney Land Paris, etc...)

I hope we will have the pleasure to welcome you again at Mercure Paris Gare de Lyon

Best regards

If taking a train into Paris from other parts of the country or Europe, one will often arrive at Gare de Lyon. Just outside the front doors if this iconic station is the beautiful clock tower, which is were the 4 star Mercure Hotel is situated.

Walking to the hotel from the front doors of Hall 2 of the station is only 25 meters (no taxi, no bus, nothing). However, one can always get a taxi to anywhere in Paris from here, which is a major bonus. Or go to the airport or take a train back out of town, etc. It is the ONLY place to stay if convenience is your focus with access to transportation.

It is a 4 star, and the staff are fantastic. I had a major computer issue, actually a network problem and they found an English speaking technician ASAP, transferred the call to my room and got me hooked up. Go see Romain, at the front desk, he and his colleagues will take good care of you like they did me.

My DW (Dear Wife) and I had traveled up from Milan to Paris on the excellent TGV arrived at the Mecuré at just before midnight - utterly exhausted. We had a superior room which was very comfortable. Double bed was frantastic. Would have preferred twin beds but staff said full up.

Good selection of bath shampoos. Powerful shower. Excellent.

Towels were the usual Accor "lets see how thin we can make these towels" GGRRR
I don't mind being 'green' and reusing but someone in Accor corporate needs to think again

The room came with 5 free soft drinks and a Nespresso machine (My favourite)

Didn't take breakfast as we wanted to explore the Gare de Lyon Train Bleu

Very useful as a superior sleep factory at a good location.

Hotel is right in the front part of the station. Very conveniently located especially for travellers taking the train at Gare de Lyon. Rooms are neat and clean, just the right size. Its not exactly cheap, but its value for money!!
