Recently remodeled room with mini-kitchen. Room had a balcony. Away from tourist area in a neighborhood. Subway stop nearby. Plenty of restaurants, with varied menus nearby. Free breakfast was good, pastries, yogurt,cereals etc. Would stay again.

Citadenes is located 100m from a metro station on the the main line (Line 1) and this allows easy access all over Paris. It is just down the road from the Viaduc des arts and the promenade plantee and has all the essentials nearby- supermarket, chemist, bank, restaurants etc. It's not the prettiest area of Paris, but it is the real Paris.
Your options are limited if you prefer to walk to your destination as Citadines Gare de Lyon is on the edge of the city centre. Les Marais is walking distance (approx 2 km) but you will mostly need to use the metro.
The rooms themselves were old (standard room), but clean, quiet and secure for the solo traveller. All the kitchen equipment worked. They provided a microwave, dishwasher, kettle, iron, room safe etc.
I found the staff generally pretty unhelpful. I broke a glass in the kitchen and was not even able to get a broom or a mop to clean it up. Cleaning services are an optional extra that you need to pay for unless you stay more than a week.
But other than that it was a reasonable place to stay.

My family (wife and 13 yo daughter) and I spent 4 nights in Paris as part of holiday in Europe. This venue was perfect as it was about 100m to the metro station which was on a main line that goes to most tourist attractions. The staff were really helpful and spoke English well. They in fact helped with sorting out getting a prepaid cellphone working. The unit was smallish but very comfortable and except for a oven, well equiped. It was clean, quite and beds were comfortable. There are also a number of resturants and supermakets very close by. We really enjoyed our stay.

I have stayed repeatedly at Citadines Bastille - Gare de Lyon, last time in June 2011. It is a residence type hotel, with two faces: The standard rooms are elementary, without much taste and quite aged; basic housekeeping is left to the customer's care. The so-called "club rooms" are recently renovated, have all amenities (incl. iPod station), bathrobes, slippers etc., housekeeping is on a daily basis and the price includes (simple but substantial) breakfast. The price difference for Club Rooms is fully justified. The only drawback is the lack of air conditioning. On hot summer days, you litterally feel this absence, especially in the front rooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Rgular customers are warmly welcome. Several nice restaurants and bistrots are in the close vicinity of the hotel. In a region of Paris with no much choice of good hotels, Citadines is the best option.

Room Tip: Ask for a high-floor club room in the back of the building. The view from the front side has nothing...

We stayed here to round of a trip to France taking in Lyon and Dijon. It was great to have our own apartment and there was an artisan baker at the end of the street and an excellent mid size supermarket round the corner. The staff were very helpful and booked our shuttle to the airport when we arrive thus saving my wife stress about arrangements for our departure. As indicated by the title we did our own breakfast with great bread from the baker.
