Paris near Gare de Lyon
Nice enough place close to Gare de Lyon, so it’s handy to that and the metro

Perfect place close to Gare de Lyon
Perfect if you need to leave early from Gare de Lyon. The place is clean and bathroom was brand new. Be mindful that there is no air con in the rooms so it might be an issue during summer.

Good 6.0
Great for Gare de Lyon station.
Good for overnight stay near the Gare de Lyon railway station.. Very small, old building but clean rooms. Tiny shower. Tiny elevator, with steps up or down onto each floor. Tight spiral staircase up all floors quite amazing to look at from the top. not suitable for less agile visitors.

Fair 4.0
Low marks
The Hotel is well located near Gare de Lyon. Besides the ridiculously small room with just enough space to move around with my suitcase the Internet was practically not existent. The attendant downstairs could't care less if you were staying at the Hotel or not. Will not stay there again.

Convenient location to get the train in Gare de Lyon the next morning. Nice staff at the reception. Rooms are very basic clearly but fine. Only point is walls are thin so if you have noisy neighbours this is not ideal
