A surprisingly good hotel
My usual hotel near Denfert-Rochereau was booked up, so I went with Hotel du Lion, and it turned out to be a good move. Comfortable room with nice air circulation, great location (for RER B to CDG esp) with 2 Metro lines just 5 steps to the hotel entrance. Only thing -- you do need to climb a narrow set of stairs to get to the hotel lobby (there's an internal lift/elevator once you get there), so be warned if you have luggage or have mobility concerns. Other thing -- the cleaning is a bit shoddy, as I found a used towel with wine stains and hair on it... But overall a good place for that part of Paris, so I'd recommend it.

Great hotel in great location
The hotel is very well located, it is clean and modern. The personnel are fantastic. As good as you can get in Paris. The only problem is that the walls are thin, so it can be very noisy sometimes. When the cleaning service starts you have to wake you like it or not.

The hotel is tiny, simple and very clean. I enjoyed my stay specifically as it was nice, clean, friendly staff and close to metro and RER. Jasmine at the reception was so great, professionall and excellent service orientation, with any inquiry I had she helped.

Not as expected
I was very upset upon arrival.Pics don't depict hotel.There are 25 steps to reach the lobby and no Bellhop. Dtr & I had to carry up our 50# suitcases and carry-ons.The clerk was very nice but unable to assist due to being pregnant.The elevator to rooms holds 3 people, so we had to go up 1 at a time.The halls were dark and scary.Rooms were scare of decor.Bedding was basic but clean.TV with 1 english channel, safe didn't work.Staff-only the pregnant clerk helped us the 1st night with Tv, but after 1 hour no english channel & other staff after 1st night would not help me.Left messages for manager to contact me-didn't happen.No sprinkler sys. in rooms/halls only had fire hose connections & fire extinguisher at end of hall.Lighting goofy, limited elec.outlets.They requested leaving the key with clerk when leaving. (I wouldn't).The area was lovely, lively, young and near public trans., many restaurants/stores. I will never stay there again or recommend this hotel. The only reason I didn't give the lowest ratings was due to the pregnant clerk being very helpful, the location and it was clean. We had clean sheets/rooms/towels daily and the air conditioner worked.
