      The location is good - next to Paris Gare de Lyon with easy access to metro and links to airport. The rooms are comfortable enough and are good value for the money. This is not a luxury hotel. We had free internet access in the hotel lobby. This was our second stay at the hotel.

      Very clean, very convenient for Gare de Lyon. Staff were friendly and courteous, and though not fluent English speaking, helped me out with my wobbly French. I needed an easy inexpensive overnight stay in Paris during train travel to Switzerland.

      Tiny lift to the 4th floor, then narrow stairs to my 6th floor room. Not suitable for elderly or infirm. My room was very small, but 100% adequate with en suite.

      close to gare de lyon railway station and metro. friendly and helpful staff

      wifi connection in the 5th floor not working properly.

      The hotel has a perfect position, close to the metro station and many different bars and restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable, the wifi worked well, and the bathroom spacious enough. In general a very pleasant hotel.

      Maybe just two things: the walls are thin (you can hear from different rooms), and the breakfast room is not very pleasant (i did not care much though, just went out to have coffee, plenty of places around)

    • Older travelers

      Proximity to Gare de Lyon. Very close to airport shuttle. Free wifi. Excellent bus and metro connections. Bike park next door. Mini-market over the road as is a post office. Walking distance to the Bastille Opera. Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast that has dropped 20% in cost over the past two years while retaining quantity and quality.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Very conveniently placed for Gard de Lyon. Friendly staff. Very clean.

      One slight criticism is that the bathroom was a bit cramped.

      This hotel is very convenient if you are using the Gare du Lyon and mtro access to sights

    • Group of friends
      6.2

      less than 5 min walk from exit 11th at Gare de Lyon station. The room is clean and ok. Reception desk is regular

      No Breakfast No Internet Elevator is very small.

    • Family with children
      7.4

      Well priced, near transport, but very basic rooms. Helpful staff. Excellent if you have an early morning train at Gare de Lyon. Loved the "Harry Potter" lift, with level 41/2 etc.( i.e platform 4 1/2 or whatever it is !!)

      Not for elderly people, with tiny lift and possibly unsafe stairs. No reflection on the hotel itself, but someone was smoking on our floor but, hey, we were in France.It is almost time to replace the beds, please.

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      Nice hotel, very comfortable for being just a 2 stars. The staff is very very kind! Good position, very close to Gare de Lyon and Palais Omnisports de Bercy. I recommend this hotel!!!

    • Couple
      8.2

      Very very good location, metro is right in-front of the hotel. Not even 1 min of walk. Perfect location if you are someone who will return to the hotel just to sleep and will be staying out during the day. Rooms are just about the right size, cleaned everyday. Friendly staff and bunch of information/offer leaflets available in the front reception. Good value for money.

      Free wi-fi was not working in my room, not enough signals. Did not complain though as it didn't matter much.

    • Family with children
      8.2

      Close to town, train station and the hart of the city

      A bit too small but acceptable.

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      This hotel has a good location near Gare de Lyon, so good metro and bus connections. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel furniture was being renewed and will be minimalist but ok.
