Very basic accommodation. Only chose if you have to be at Gare de Lyon at the crack of dawn for a train trip to somewhere else....staff nice, but rooms very basic. I'm not complaining about the rooms, you get what you pay for...but a couple of points need to be mentioned. I shudder to think how anyone with a mobility problem would cope here, or, dare I I say it, cope if there was a need to be evacuated. There is a tiny lift, very much straight out of a Harry Potter film, and it really only takes one or two people...one person at a time if you have large suitcases. Mind your fingers in the doors of bedrooms. Other thing that needs to be mentioned is that the people in the room next to me were smoking....I'm sure this is breaching rules, but hey....maybe there were no smoke detectors, which is even more of a concern. Consequently, my bedroom reeked of smoke all night long. Not very pleasant.
