My husband and i really enjoyed our stay at this well run and clean hotel. the location was great- a 5 minute walk from Gare de Lyon which is only 2 stops from Gare de Nord- so very useful for Eurostar travellers.
Our room was not big (Room 203) but we appreciated having such a large window that allowed so much natural light in to the room. The bathroom was small but very clean and new looking. The shower was absolutely incredible too- fabulous water pressure! We also liked the fact that there was at least 1 channel in English (CNN) which allowed us to watch the Royal Wedding highlights and keep up with general world things.
The staff were lovely and helpful. Everyone was incredibly friendly so we always had a warm feeling about the place. We would come back at strange times e.g. 3am at times and would still get warm welcomes from tired reception staff in need of sleep!
We never had breakfast there- there was no need as there was a very handy boulangerie/pattiserie a couple of doors down (which also took care of frugal lunches). there is also a small supermarket next to the patisserie which was very convenient. There are a number of bistrots and restaurants open late which is handy for the odd late night supper.
The location was extremely convenient in terms of getting around Paris. We tried to walk when possible but having the metro so nearby was useful too.
There have been some comments about the lift door opening on to a flight of stairs. I can imagine this being a problem for people struggling with heavy luggage as it may be awkward to negotiate keeping the lift door open (tiny lift btw) while dragging out suitcases. We had no such issue as we didn't have that much stuff and we used the stairs to get to and from the 2nd floor. For those who have issues using even a few steps, please note that the lift is NOT on the ground floor- you'll need to walk up half a flight of stairs to access it.
The only issue that I faced was that the internet was INCREDIBLY tempermental. I needed it for work and I had real problems connecting to it. There is an internet cafe opposite the hotel but that was inconvenient for me as i needed to check my email intermittently. Sometimes the trick was to sit right next to the window but that didn't work all the time!
