We had booked a room in this hotel 2 weeks ahead of time on the internet. When arrived we were given what had to be the worst room in the hotel, under the pretense that the hotel was booked. A very small room, a window which did not open (on an air well). We usually stay in a charming hotel...

Our three-days stay at this hotel has been very positive. We booked a family room and it was bigger than expected after reading some comments. The cleaning standard is very good and the beds really comfortable. There was a fridge in the room, though I missed a hairdrier and some coffee-tea making facilities. About the staff, all the receptionists were...

We found this hotel to be a good base for exploring Paris. The continental breakfast was good, as was the service. No air conditioning in rooms.

This is not actually a hotel, it is a stack of bedrooms with the Kitchen in another hotel 1 minute around the corner where one breakfasts, However the area is great and food and drink are one minute away in every direction so no matter.

Hotel is in a good location, close to transport links at Gare de Lyon and 10 mins walk from Bastille (handy for sunday market) and a supermarket nearby. It was clean and had a decent shower.

Neighbourhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make their homes.
