Just returned back from a 3 night stay in the Hotel Du Lion.
We had a friendly welcome on arrival, all front of house spoke very good english. We were on the 6th floor and yes there are a lot of stairs but there is also a lift which works perfectly fine.
As others have said rooms are small but spacious enough for what you needed. Our room was cleaned daily and we were also given fresh towels daily. The bathroom is fairly modern with a good shower. We opted and paid a little extra for a room with a view towards the Eiffel Tower (room 62) however we could only see the Montparnasse tower due to the Eiffel tower being behind it which was a little disappointing!
The hotel is a nice area with plenty of shops (supermarket right across the street) and restaurants (would definitely recommend Cafe Daguree and Swann et Vincent). The hotel is also a great base for sightseeing, good access to the Metro (literally right outside the door) and great access from CDG airport - direct train from airport to hotel.
All in all this hotel is exactly as described, it isn't a 5 star however it isn't claiming to be. It is a great, affordable hotel with as mentioned before great access to everything you want in Paris. Would definitely return to this hotel if visiting again.
