“Lovely Hotel, Friendly staff and Location 'parfait'”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

I spent 3 days in this Hotel and loved it. Excellent facilitiies, the rooms look sparkling new and modern. Good furniishing. The best thing is the location. The Railway station is a 2 mins by walk and there are loads of cafes around.

Would definitely recommend both for business and pleasure.

I chose the hotel for a w/e break for our family with two teenagers as we were arriving by train at the Gare De Lyon and had booked seats at the Opera. The hotel is located between the two so was perfect for us. The area has improved quite a bit (although there is still a sex shop next door) and has two good supermarkets within a stone's throw, not to mention two creperies, a decent boulangerie and numerous brasseries. So if you don't like the food in the hotel (which we didn't actually try apart from breakfast which was fine), you will not starve. Located in the Gare De Lyon is the world famous "Le Train Bleu" which is a real (visual) treat if you want to splurge!
We had a couple of rooms on the road side on the fourth floor. The insulation was pretty good and we did not hear any neighbours. In fact I thought we had been the only people in the hotel until I saw others at breakfast. It was a real pleasure to find a hotel with king sized beds which were pretty comfortable. The lighting in the rooms is excellent with lots of environmentally friendly options. The panel between the bedroom and the bathroom was glass so a light on in the bathroom offered even more light to the bedroom (which wouldn't be so welcome if you were sharing with someone who wanted to sit in the bath and not disturb their partner) but we liked it. The bathrooms are small but the shower pressure was good and a small engineering problem I had with the shower was remedied swiftly by a charming engineer who was more than happy to help.
My only reservation about the bedrooms is that you would not want to have small children in a room on their own. The rooms have a small balcony accessed by a french door from the bedroom. There is nothing to stop an adventurous child from opening the doors and I would hate to think what might happen.
The hotel is located near the metro- a couple of stops to the Gare du Nord and on the main line to the Louvre, Place de La Concorde etc so really easy to get around.
I had booked and pre-paid an extra room by mistake but the management called up to confirm that I would be refunded before I had had the chance to ask. That was quite impressive! It was not a busy week-end for the hotel so we didn't really get to the management under pressure, but everyone we met was most helpful.

I found this hotel clean and comfortable. I wouldn't say that it was anything special and was missing an element of luxury but it was friendly and had everything I needed for my one night stay on a work trip.

I was working for the most part but the hotel did seem well located and near to tourist attractions.

I slept very soundly.

My travelling mate and I differed about this hotel. I liked it very much, thought it was convenient for sightseeing, excellent service, very clean, decent breakfast, just down the road from a good supermarket. He didn't like the area (near a major railway station and with some homeless people on the streets) and next door to a sex shop. The remote on our TV didn't work (the TV did) and the bathroom door didn't close properly. He hasn't had much experience of Paris hotels and, I think, these were minor concerns. My one disappointment was that the free broadband was slow. Fine for emails but not for uploading photos.
