Reviewed 28 December 2004

First, to qualify my statements: I lived in France for years and I've traveled extensively through-out Europe.

Hotel Du Lys... what can I say? oooolalalala, c'est atroce! It's a filthy trash pit in an excellent location. It is not in any way 'typical' of what you should expect in France. I've stayed in much better hotels within blocks of this place and the cost of the room was less or equal to what I paid (110 E)

The room which, by the way, is the one you see on their site with the half timbered ceilings, was filthy. The moldings were dirtier than a bus-station bathroom. The bathroom, well you may want to bring along a pair of flip-flops if you stay here. Cramped? extremely. The hotel staff, well, they were extremely friendly and helpful. My statements seem to the the opposite of what others have said... I suppose that many, if not all, of them were on their first trip to France and didn't know what to expect.

I have stayed in state run hotels in Yugoslavia while under the corrupt rule of the Milosevic government that were far superior to this hotel.

You can find better quality hotels by the Gare Du Nord for 1/3 of the price of this place.

There were only 2 things good about this hotel: 1) location 2) friendly staff.

Bon Voyage!
