“Lots of space”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2012

The Citadines apartment hotels are great value. We had a kitchen, a loung/dining room, separate bathroom and toilet, and a decent sized-bedroom. Several supermarkets, boulangeries, and delis in the area make it easy to eat in and save plenty of money by avaoiding expensive restaurants.

Room Tip: Choose the 1-bedroom rooms instead of the basic for extra space.

We stayed in Citadines Bastille/Gare de Lyon for 5 nights in October for a short break in Paris. The location is in a quiet Parisien neighbourhood away from the madness and high prices of the touristy streets, however you are only around the corner from the Rueilly Diderot metro station and a 10 minute walk from Gare de Lyon, making it an excellent base location. The metro at Reilly Diderot is on the yellow line which goes to alot of the tourist attractions such as the Louvre, la Defense... The room itself was very comfortable, I had read the horror stories of the sofa beds that you pull down form the wall and so was pleasantly suprised when we had a comfortable bed. Everything you need is provided such a a iron, ironing board, microwave, dishwasher, fridge... its well equiped. Across the road from the hotel there is a small supermarket called franprix very handy and reasonably priced. Also the day we arrived there was a food market on about 10 minutes walk from the hotel that usually starts on a Tuesday and runs straight through to Sunday.According to a Parisien friend of mine it is a very famous market and one of the cheapest in the cities. Its well worth a visit and the variety of fresh produce on display is impressive. Also on Rue Chaligney there is a Artisan Boulangerie that sells everything from quiches, to pizza's, bread and cakes to die for. The restaurant Aubergine is just down from the hotel and offers a three course meal for 23 euro, its regularly packed and comes highly recommended. Also th Chinese le Lys D'or has many Michelin prizes displayed on its window, well worth a visit. The staff in the hotel were very helpfull and friendly. I would definately stay in this hotel again

We stayed here for 5 nights in October 2011. The positives? Staff were helpful and patient with us seeing we can't speak French. Excellent location near the Rueilly-Diderot Metro and Gare de Lyon a bit further. You can easily travel all over Paris from here. The one bedroom apartment had good equipment for a bit of cooking or for dining in with a takeaway- plenty of restaraunt options nearby. Comfortable beds, the kind with twin beds pushed together- perhaps not ideal but beats having two tall people jammed into a standard 1.4 metre wide double bed. (I can't belive that these instruments of torture are still made). The room was quiet, good blockout curtains and excellent shower.
Negatives? Alas it was spoiled by being in desperate need of cleaning. The room actually smelt very stale because of this and there were little niggling things that were broken. Drain semi-blocked, no bath plug, CD player long dead. No free wi-fi in rooms but can use in lobby.
All things considered this will be an excellent place to stay once renovations are completed.

We stayed here for 4 nights in October for a short break in Paris. The location is perfect - the metro is just around the corner and the gare de Lyon is a 10 min walk away. The area is nice with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. What's was not so good was the room. It was very small and, although clean, seriously in need of a good scrub and repaint. It was a shame as otherwise the place is ok.

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.
