We chose this hotel because of it's price, location not far from the latin quarter and easy access to CDG airport - it was very convenient! Also in a pleasant area which has more Parisians than tourists. Rooms are relatively small but adequate. Stairs to the first floor but a lift after that.

It was our first time to Paris and stayed at hotel du lion for 5 nights.We had a wonderful stay!! Location was perfect, just a few steps from the metro and the RER B station, making it for us very easy to travel around paris, as well as the CDG Airport and Disneyland! Rooms were cleaned every day and as we chose the les parisienes room we had an amazing view of the eiffel and montparnasse tower!! Although located on the main street we weren't bothered at all by any noise. Room was a bit small but quite big enough for Paris standars! Staff was very helpful and willing to help us plan our holiday and what to visit, especially Ismael was very nice!!Last but not least, with this view,service and location we really believe it was best value for money!!Thank you hotel du lion, we will be back for sure!!:)

very good in location, the metro entrance is right in front of the hotel, RER station is not far away. There is a cafe right next door and a grocery store is just opposite the road. But need to go one floor of narrow stairs is quite a troublesome for big luggage and the elevator is quite slow.

I made my reservation and payment via hotel website, the hotel room were just as shown in the picture, we took the triple (good for 3 adults or 2 ADT and child), failry roomy for European standards. Appliances and room are updated, everything working properly, clean, extremely close toi the RER station and in front of the subway stairs. It does have a decent hairdryer... Staff were very kind and helpful, in order to get to the elevator - which for Paris standards is big enough - you need to go one floor of stairs, no big deal.

Room Tip: We got a room at the 2nd floor, not an astonishing view, but due to the double glass and appropraite...

This is our 3rd visit here, the staff are great - remembered us from last time, gave us the room early (11am) as there were one's available - we don't give them demands we are just happy with whatever room we are allocated.
Yes the rooms are small, there's no decent hairdryer, no bar, no coffee making facilities - but it's a 2 star, and very short walk from the RER, also right next to the metro - next door to lots of bars etc, so can pick up coffee etc easily, plus there's a Monoprix for food etc, the staff are excellent, the owner is great too, the room is clean, they are happy to give you ice etc to take your own drink to the room - great value for money - some of the poor reviews I've read make me wonder whether these people have ever stayed in Paris before, it's rare to get a room in this location for the price they offer - and if you go to Paris, why do you want to stay in your room all the time anyway - we had a great view of the Eiffel Tower & Montparnasse Tower from our room on the 4th floor, a bonus - couldn't fault it & hopefully we will be staying again next year.....
