“Good value and close to Gare du Lyon”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

My family and I stayed here for the night en-route to the South of France as it is within walking distance of both Gare Bercy, for the auto-train, and Gare du Lyon, for the TGV south. Apart from the location, I chose the hotel as it had interconnecting rooms. the rooms were not large, but were well furnished and clean. The breakfast in the morning was good and varied, and overall the hotel was good value for money considering the prime location. I am happy to recommend and would stay there again.

Stayed 5 nights from late June to early July.

Pros: Lovely, helpful, accommodating staff. Clean rooms, with comfortable bedding and good climate control. Complimentary water and coffee in lobby (being able to grab a water bottle after a long day touring was great!). Really very convenient location - Gare de Lyon and Gare Austerlitz just a short walk from hotel - easy walks to Latin Quartier, Notre Dame, Bastille, Marais... Two excellent Patisseries a few yards from the hotel.

Cons: Rooms are small, but they were really all we needed. Poor quality soap in shower and a lack of small wash cloths are not what Americans are used to, but not a deal breaker. Blocks immediate to Gare de Lyon are probably not the best for families with children who are looking to stroll at night locally. We have teens and just avoided certain streets.

For travelers on a budget who like convenience, cleanliness and a knowledgeable front desk, this hotel is a good choice!

Room Tip: We thought second floor rooms were perfect. Elevator and spiral staircase (common in Paris).

Room recently renovated . Bedding very good. Staff are the best we have come across in over 20 French hotels over the years.speak reasonable to good English and happy to try to go with our poor French. The room we were in was very small but more than compensated by good bed and pillows and superb staff

I have been several times to Paris, never enjoyed my stays. THis time i Might say it was a nce surprise. I recently renovated hotel, clean and fresh. As usual space is a problem in all hotels I have stayed in Paris. The locatios is good, near Gare de Lyon. Train and Metro to major sights in Paris. For Family of four is great because you have interconnecting rooms. I must reccomend also an Asian restaurant down the road, excellent food, for dinner or lunch.

Whilst travelling on business and wanted to be close to Gare de Lyon for early TGV in the morning, found this nice little hotel. Excellent service on arrival, excellent dinner suggestions, small but clean and comfortable room. Very comfy bed , shower room a little tight, but was just a quick stop over so no big deal. Would definetly stay again if staying in the area.

The hotel situated just opposite Gare de Lyon very accessible you can travel all around Paris easily from here. Very modern hotel very stylish excellent service from front desk. There are plenty of great restaurants in the surrounding area. We went to the L'Europeen which was great and just 2 minutes from hotel.

Good afternoon,

We would like to thank you for your lovely comment.
Indeed, the hotel is near Gare de Lyon, quai de la Rapée and Gare d'Austerlitz which allow people to go almost everywhere in Paris easily.
There are nice restaurants in the neighboorhood: L'Européen is one of them but also La Biche au Bois, Le Café Barjot, le P'tit Bercy...

Sincerely,

Sophie

We choose this hotel because of its proximity to the Gare du Lyon station. We rented 2 rooms and stayed one night. They advertised that it had been recently redone and it all did seem very new.
The rooms look as they do online and have new beds and brand new modern bathrooms.The location was great as we walked to the latin quarter and the marais. The staff all spoke english and were very helpful even making a dinner reservation at our request a few weeks before our arrival.

One of our rooms was very small and reminded us of a hotel room in New york City- it would have been difficult to have stayed long in that room as there was no closet and really no where to put anything and the bathroom was truly tiny. The other room was much larger so if you are wanting to stay longer request the larger rooms. I would recommend this hotel and i would stay here again for a short stay.

Room Tip: the smaller room was on the corner so had windows to the south and the east
