We were very pleased with this hotel for our recent stay in Paris. Gare de Lyon is right next door so there is easy access to the Metro. The staff was very helpful even though we spoke very little French.

Property was good exterior was not that great, the room was ok cleaning service was just ok due to the fact we had to call front desk each time to ask for Replenishment of water and toiletries, cleaning staff was not friendly and did not speak English, The restaurant was very pricey for breakfast and dinner, I like that it was close to the metro and it was close to a lot of my excursions via the train or taxi, my over all experience was fine

Not bad but would stay somewhere else next time

Would rather stay closer to the tourists areas. Next to subway/train station which is nice but not good for the type of people that hang out there. Did worry about safety. Hotel was nice and clean but pool very very small and cold. Can't take drinks from bar into pool area. Not much for the kids to do. Our floor had internet but others did not, only one public computer in lobby. B
