“Just the ticket”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

100 metres north of the Gare de Lyon and on the 65 bus route from Gare de Nord, the hotel was ideally situated for us. It also proved ideally suited - clean, comfortable, quiet and reasonably priced with friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Lots of local shops including a Monoprix, restaurants and other transport links.
We did not have breakfast at all but, from afar, it looked fine.
With no obvious drawbacks we were more than happy - even the early morning noise of the infamous Paris bin clearance and street clean was missing from our two night stay, even though we had the windows open.

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floors are obviously further away from any street noise

For those you are transiting from Hostels to Hotel, this is a really nice start hotel. The price was Ok for Paris and location. In less then 5 minutes you can reach Gare de Lyon. Theres some shops where you can buy sandwiches, bread, cookies, fruits, pizza, snacks in general, coffee, drinks... everyting, and they are open from 08h30 until 24h00. There some cheap/nice fast food restaurants, chinese, arab, etc all around. People in the Hotel are nice, but we where going out at 09h00 and coming back at 22h00 so we didn't pass so many time in the hotel. Breakfast is not included in the price, and a little bit expansive(normal for Paris) but with a few euros you can buy anywhere some french bread and french pastry and enjoy the breakfast in a nice garden our in the borders of the river :) The temperature of the room was Ok, the towels, bed cheats and room, always clean. I will return for sure.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top are quieter Wifi dosent work very well on the 7th floor, but who cares about wifi...

Was a great place to stay before our early morning train ride to Rome. Being so close to Gare de Lyon makes this a great affordable place to stay. Rooms are clean and sufficient the staff are very friendly. It's close to anything you would want.

Being a less than 5 minute walk from one of the biggest train stations in Paris makes this hotel a very suitable option for tourists. The rooms have everything you need plus a few extras if you ask the staff (i.e. iron etc) who do their best to attend to your needs. Although there was an air conditioner present in our rooms its effect was marginal at best thus we preferred to open the windows a bit despite the loud traffic below. For breakfast there are many options of varying quality and freshness. I would certainly consider this hotel again if I'm lucky enough to return to Paris.

Great location of the hotel (very near to Gare De Lyon Station) and old but clean property but sorry to say there more to say about this one...there is nothing gr8 about its rooms, facility, service or breakfast...I will not say they were bad but they were just okay which will simply serve your purpose....can choose this hotel mainly because of its very good location....

If you are tourists from Asia, you have to expect that this hotel is antique! You won't feel it is modern as compared to your home country. Nevertheless, this hotel is very clean (except the carpet, you have to bring your slippers), and its only 5 mins walk to the train station. Btw, 7th floor has no elevator that you have to carry your luggage from 6th floor. The metal room key has to be kept in the reception and the wifi is weak. Okay to stay if you look for a budget hotel and have to catch the train in the early morning.

For the price we paid this was actually a very good deal.
The location is great, right by the Gare de Lyon and the room was clean and of good size.
We never had breakfast there as it didn't look very exceptional.
