“IT WAS EXCELLENT”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

good service, so polite and cheerfull
it's next to the station, so it makes it more easy to get around the city
plus, also the station connect to both airport
and if you trying to save some money, it has a Monoprox in the street in front
we got a beatiful view of the Eiffel Tower
simply it was so wonderful
and with an accessible price
the room 73 it's the room to be in.

Room Tip: seven floor 73

My second time in Hotel du Lion.
The main advantage of the hotel is the transport to/from the CDG Roissy Airport, being very close to the metro and RER station of Denfert-Rochereau.
Rooms are big enough, clean and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. In particular, the lady at the reception is very nice and ready to help all the time.
However, do not waste your money in paying for breakfast at the hotel. You will find just walking down several places with cheaper breakfast.

Need I say more?
Nice hotel with friendly staff. Small and clean. All you need for a family stay in Paris. I would also recommend this hotel for a tourist visit to Paris as it is located close to RER Metro and bus-lines.

Have a nice stay.

Ideal location two mintues from Denfer-Rochereau station Excellent value for money. Very clean, room small but ideal for a stay in Paris. Lovely restaurants around for morning coffee, breakfasts and dinner. In the centre of shops for clothes, supermarkets. Staff very pleasant and helpful. A top floor gave a wonderful distant view of the EiffelTower, twinkling in the evening.

Location is great:
Denfert-Rochereau both for RER from airport and Orlybus.
also rue Daguerre for going out

Facilities are OK. Not big but at that price in Paris you don't find bigger.
Clean.

No elevator from street to 1rst floor but elevator afterwards.

Room Tip: maybe not giving on the street but did not try the other ones...

I needed some advice on finding places around. Nice concierge took his time, made me maps and drew plans with transportations options included. He did it in the most helpful way possible, with personal advise on handling some aspects of traveling in Paris. It was so much more then I expected. Really nice. I felt cared about, genuinely cared about my safety and comfort. Sweet.

And the rooms are clean and the breakfast is good too.

there is absolutely crazy amount of bakeries, pubs, restaurants, shops, bars, etc. around.
Pretty much they take 1st floors of all the buildings.

transportation to and from the hotel is very easy.. the subway (train) and buses are right there, next to hotel.
