    The hotel is very conveniently located for rail passengers using Gare de Lyon. It is only about 4 or 5 stops on the metro from the main sights of Paris e.g. Louvre, Notre Dame, Musee D'Orsay, Arc de Triomph. There was a good choice for the breakfast buffet.

    Small lounge was very useful for meeting people.

  • Single

    Clean room. Only one min. to the Gare de Lyon. Reasonable price.

    The wall is so thin that I could here every conversation of the next room.

  • Couple

    Very nice friendly staff. Hotel looks good. Free internet (I don't understand why hotels charge for this) close to a metro station (but which hotel in Paris isn't) fairly quiet street.

    Whatever you do. Do NOT get room No.1 (and probably not No2 either) It's a bit dark, halfway below ground. The bathroom isn't that clean. (bit damp because it's below ground level?) And in the morning when people flush their toilets on the upper floors everything passes with a thunderous roar through a pipe in the wall behind the bed. Bit noisy as we were close to the breakfast area. (double doors didn't help that much)

    For a 2 star hotel in Paris I thought it was great value, clean, relatively roomy and excellent location for train station and restaurants

    The lift was out of order when we arrived and then again when we left. As we were on the 4th floor, leaving with luggage was a problem

  • Family with children

    Very convenient location, within a block of Gare de Lyon, less than a block from shuttle bus stop to the airport. Small boutique hotel with fairly large, well furnished clean room with a reasonably sized bathroom, on a quiet side street. Friendly and helpful front desk staff who could converse in English. Reasonably good continental breakfast (no eggs).

    Very small elevator, as is common in most European hotels. Elevator broke down on our last day, so we had to carry three suitcases down the spiral staircase from the sixth (American) floor.

  • Single

    excellent hotel, good and clean room, spotless clean bathroom. It is a 2 stars but many 3 or even 4 stars are a lot worse. Excellent location too, 2 minutes walking from Gare de Lyon but quiet because it is on a side road with little traffic. Excellent value for money

    you have to leave the key at the reception when going out

  • Family with children

    Staff very helpful during problems caused by French Rail Strike

  • Couple

    near rail station.

    not good attitude of a couter lady.

  • Single
    4.2

    nice soft cotton percale sheets

    lift did not work, i found the reception staff a little rude, the shower room was too small, the tv had only 3 channels, the shower waer took 10 min to warm up, the basin was blocked and it was impossible to sit on the loo apart from sideways as there was not enough leg room

  • Single
    8.8

    Room was very clean and refreshed every day. Free high speed wireless internet worked well. Small desk was quite useful. Helpful staff. Quiet location off main street and traffic noise around the train station. Conviememt fpr Metro or walking around Paris. Hotel rooms in Paris are small but Palym is good value for money. I did not eat the breakfast.

    Not in the best part of Paris with a few homeless people, but you are safe day or night.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Welcoming staff. Easy to find and ideally placed for Gare de Lyon.

  • Single
    7.4

    it was very close to the Gare de Lyon for catching the early train

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Convenience to Gare de Lyon and general comfort of hotel.

  • Single
    9.2

    The hotel is a great value for the money you pay, the rooms are of good size and their are very confortable and modern.
