The rooms are exactly as shown on the photograph. I was told all rooms have been fully renovated. The location is just amazing, just facing Gare de Lyon. The staff was very welcoming and caring. Only thing: I was on 6th floor and wifi was quite weak in my room.

My daughter is a student in Rennes. I must return to Paris for my flight to the USA.The Hotel Palym is the perfect location . The people at the front desk are always pleasant and helpful.

The hotel room was modern, clean, and roomy by European standards. What stands out is the service. My door did not open due to a failed mechanism. The front desk man, new at his job, worked tirelessly to get it fixed, extend courtesy, and went out of his way to solve the problem. It is for this employee I give...

I stayed here on my way to and from The south of France and Spain by train. Arriving late at night I wanted somewhere close and this hotel is just across the road. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly and room was clean, modern, quiet and had all I needed. Shops and restaurants plentiful in the area.

We stayed here for just one night - a Saturday. We primarily chose the Palym because of its proximity to Gare de Lyon railway station (its less than a 5 minute walk) Check in took longer than expected as we had to fill a lengthy registration form in for each guest - in our case four of us. The receptionist...

We stayed here for 4 nights recently. The hotel is right next to the Gare de Lyon (you need exit 10!) making it simple to get around.

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.
