About Hotel Palym, Paris

A continental breakfast buffet (surcharge) and free WiFi near Gare de Lyon station

Across from Gare de Lyon

Hotel Palym is across the street from Paris-Gare de Lyon train and metro station in the 12th arrondissement. It's a 15-minute walk to Jardin des Plantes on the Left Bank of the Seine, a botanical garden and home to a branch of the National Museum of Natural History.

A night at the opera

Within a 30-minute Metro ride, you can be strolling through the historic and architecturally impressive Le Marais district with its shops, cafés, and the Picasso Museum. For a night of high culture, the modern Opéra Bastille is a 10-minute walk from the hotel.

You can fill up at the continental breakfast buffet (surcharge), and after a long day, you can relax in the lobby lounge with a hot drink and read the newspaper. If you need help with anything in the city, the concierge service is available around the clock, as is luggage storage.

Great choice
Great hotel. The room is compact but comfortable. The service and staff were great. Good location right near the rail

Can't go wrong with this establishment!
The hotel is in a great location a half-block from Gare de Lyon. The room was Paris-small but large enough to move around (if my husband had been there it may have been too tight). I was a bit bummed that there wasn't a hair dryer or that only one WiFi login/password could be used per room and it seemed only on the first device that logged in using it. But a minor inconvenience for a very nice stay.

The hotel was great, near the train station for easy access and the room was clean and new. There were only a few downsides; the WiFi was atrocious, they give you a code to use for your stay but the WiFi kept falling off and when it would connect it was very slow; the breakfast they offered was sub-par, I have had a European breakfast before but I was not impressed, thus we only took it once; I had booked this hotel for the fact I was traveling with my mother and wanted two twin beds, after traveling all night from America we were both very tired and upon arrival into our room, it turned out to be a king size bed. I was too tired to argue it at this point and we made it work. Overall, staff was very accommodating and very helpful. If I were to stay in Paris again, I would chose a hotel closer to the Louvre or Gare de Nord for ease of access to Paris/CDG

Comfortable Stay
Loved that the hotel was in close proximity to Gare de Lyon and the metro. The hotel was comfortable. The air conditioning was working. This is a good thing in the summer months. The continental breakfast should be part of the price rather than paying extra for what was offered.

Great location and friendly staff
Very nice stay. Hotel is right across from Gare de lyon and metro stations. Staff is super friendly and accomodating. I did not eat their breakfast, it is not free and it seems expensive for what they offer. Very satisfied with our stay.
