    Really close to Gare de Lyon and good value

    It is really close to Gare de Lyon with wheelchair access. We had to leave really early but the staff were very helpful. The bed was very comfortable and warm. There are lots of restaurants near by.

    Clean, basic but don’t expect more

    It’s amazing how much check in sets the whole experience. I was 30 min early (13.30) and was told I could leave my bags and come back since there were no rooms available before official check in. I said I’d rather sit in the lounge and wait and 2 min later there was a room ready.

    The hotel was extremely accomodating during these 'unprecedented' times. The reception staff was welcoming and informative and the room was absolutely lovely.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Tastefully decorated, very close to Gare de Lyon, small balcony, quiet, and moderately priced. The best value for the area. Minor suggestions: needs one BRIGHT lighting option to be able to pack/unpack without squinting. Reading light is there, but can't light an area large enough to look through case/clothes etc. Moderate suggestion: lack of width to toilet makes for a very tricky after-toilet care (!) But these small things apart, this is a very pretty and relaxed hotel in a tricky area.

    They've recently updated the property and it's nicely done. The rooms are a decent size for Paris. The location is great and literally across Gar de Lyon. Plenty of breakfast and dinner options nearby.

    Room was clean with all the amenities. However it was too small for two people. It felt like the lowest grade cruise ship room.

    Affordable hotel close to Gare Lyon

    Hotel is clean and comfortable. Rooms can be a bit small. Bathrooms clean and modern. Seems like the property was finishing up some recent renovations. Neighborhood is not great, but is close to transportation - Gare Lyon and the metro. Staff was friendly and accommodating, most spoke English well.
