“Excellent location - pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

I recently spent my last night in Paris at this hotel. I thought the location was ideal as I came in at Gare d'Austerlitz and left from Gare de Lyon. My room was a good size and the bathroom very recently renovated, both spotlessly clean. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. I was allowed to leave my bags in a locked storage area which was useful. My room did face the main road but was very quiet and I am a very light sleeper!

The hotel is a 2 mins walk from the metro and a 10 mins walk from Gare de Lyon. I never stay in hotels for a long time and thought this hotel ideal for a short term stay.

Stayed July 2013, travelled solo

We stayed three nights at this hotel. The location is excellent, close to Bastille, few steps from a metro station serving several lines, in a walking distance from most major sites in Paris, and the neighbourhood feels safe and quiet, although still offering a lot of cafes and restaurants.
The rooms are small, as expected in Paris, but the bed is comfortable, the bathroom is newly renovated, and it has a kettle with coffee and tea- very nice. Rue de Lyon is pretty busy, but the windows are well isolated, so no problem, and the A/C worked really great during the summer heat. We had nothing to complain about.
The breakfast is standard buffet, but it could be much worse, and the waiter is really great and funny! The rest of the staff is also great and polite.
When we checked out, we could leave our luggage in a locked room.
We would definately recommend this hotel!

Location is very good. Gare de Lyon(RER station) about ten minutes' walking distance and metro station is even closer. Room is clean but needs renovation. Quiet enough, if you're not using a room close to the elevator. Not bad, but not very attractive either.

I stayed here last week with my 2 friends from uni (3 girls, age 20) We were pleased to see it straight ahead as we stepped out of Bastille metro station. Upon arrival we had a bit of trouble with our booking and had to wait while the hotel manager phoned our booking agency to sort it out. After hanging up he promptly assured us that he would sort it out, we would have our room and we could leave our bags with them and return when we wanted (instead of the 2pm check in). He then proceeded to give us any information about where to go for shopping, which areas to avoid, which metros to use, how to get to versailles, where the nearest supermarket was etc. All of the staff were very kind and welcoming. Our triple room was spacious (seriously amazing for Paris!) with a nice clean bathroom. I recommend this hotel to anyone. We also got the breakfast free (usually 14euro) by booking with a travel agent.

We thought this hotel was perfect for our needs, close to the metro and restaurants in the square, walkable distance from gare du lyon, gare d'austerlitz, ile de cite (Notre Dame etc) and we even walked to the eiffel tower along the river one night (though we did get the metro back). Be aware that the metro closes around 1am (we had to get a taxi back from montparnasse one night, but it worked out to only around 12euro) and I'd recommend going during the week as it is less busy than the weekend. You can buy your metro tickets on the eurostar for ease (around 14euros for 10) or in the stations when you arrive (around 13euro for 10) If you buy tickets individually they're 1.70 euros each, so it is definitely worth buying a pack of 10.

Since we last stayed in this hotel about 6 years ago, there has been a major refit. We came back because of its excellent situation and because we had enjoyed our stay last time. Our visit this year was even better.The hotel is very clean; our room spacious and weel appointed and the female receptionist, Christine, extremely welcoming and helpful. We cannot fault the attention she gave us. The breakfast buffet was good and the only thing missing was fresh fruit each morning. The location is excellent as it is just a short distance from the Metro with a direct link to Gare du Nord (Line 5) and Eurostar; just 15-20 mins away. In addition, there is a very comprehensive bus service to all the major tourist sites. Take a 69 or 87bus and get a really cheap view of Paris. As you have to have a ticket before you get on the bus or train, purchase a carnet on Eurostar, rather than at St Pancras; bit cheaper. Le Train Bleu, just down the road at Gare de Lyon is well worth a visit as the decor is astounding. Bofinger, also just a stroll away is also fabulous and in both places the food is good but expensive. The place to go for really good value is A La Biches au Bois: but it is small so you will have to book. A REALLY good set menu of 4 delicious courses for 29.50 Euros!! This hotel is highly recommended.

I was here for my honeymoon and booked the triple room thinking it would be more spacious however the bed was the only thing that was bigger. It was very cramped for the $200 I was spending per night. I thought even though its Paris being that its a little away from everything it we could get more for the money which didn't turn out to be true. The breakfast buffet was included just like your normal continental breakfast you see my where else. Staff was friendly and attentive. Location was close to the metro which was a nice thing. I would recommend paying a little more to be closer to the action.

Was very doubtful about this hotel due to bad reviews - however we had a very enjoyable stay. We paid for what we got! Only one small issue not even the hotels fault!! The small shop at back of hotel have a dog outside and he is constantly barking from early morn to late night. Bastille is a fab area/lovely restaurants and bars/ just a real cool place and walking distance to notre dame. Hotel renovating at moment but very little noise. overall experience very enjoyable. I would highly recommend "bike about tours" great trip around paris by bicycle and some of the cafes around tourist spots are a complete rip off /check the prices first!
