Week-long conference travel

We stayed at the Holiday Inn - Gare de Lyon to attend an international conference at La Defense. The best reason to select this hotel is its very close proximity to Gare de Lyon, one of the major train stations in Paris. This allowed our commutes to be effortless. The hotel itself is clean and welcoming, with nice rooms with small balconies that overlook the busy streets - a pleasing view. The bathrooms are fine, but the bathroom door has to be slammed shut for privacy, and there are no locks. One evening, my colleague slammed too hard, and a bathroom tile fell out and cracked on the floor. The hotel staff were kind about the incident and did not blame us, but their demeanor hinted that this may not be the first time such an incident occurred. On our last evening, we bought a couple bottles of wine from the nearby grocery store, and the hotel bartender was kind enough to provide us glassware and bottle service for a few hours. We felt that was quite nice and beyond the call of duty. Overall, I would say that this hotel is an excellent choice if proximity to a major train station is your most important criterion. For other criteria, the hotel is good, but not remarkable.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Single (or couple) travelers, if you stay at this hotel for any more than five days, I think the Paris Navigo Decouverte metro pass (about 40 euros per week) is absolutely worth it. Because we each bought passes our first day, we were able to traverse the sprawling city of Paris effortlessly, and sometimes without even too much planning. Make your travel significantly easier with this small investment.

A spotless and modern room

We were pleasantly surprised, given the reviews we read here, at the modern, clean and comfortable room. The staff didn't slobber all over us, but they were friendly and helpful enough. The bathroom, along with the translucent wall that separates it from the outer room, was very stylish. There is a noisy and bustling street outside, with constant honking. It it is Paris, after all. The hotel and the room are a million times cleaner and more pleasant than the filthy and disgusting metro station one block away, and a very nice oasis to retreat to after enduring said filthy and disgusting metro station. Take a cab to this hotel if you can afford it. Take cabs everywhere in Paris if you can afford it.

Great Location

The location was great. 1 block from the Metro. Only truely bad part of hotel is they were doing remodeling and a jackhammer was being used. Started at 9:00am impossible to sleep in and staff did not seem to care.

A lot of dining within 2 blocks. Do not get in a hurry if you sit down to eat. Ask for ice if you want a cold drink.

Great Find

Location is ideal, next to busy metro/train station Gare de Lyon. Room was modern, clean and comfortable. Staff friendly. The rates were modest. Overall, a great hotel find in Paris; one I would go back to on my return visits.

Interesting Experience

The Hotel was comfortable and the staff was generally accomodating. The bar was closed due to renovation. However the hotel is in a rather seedy section of Paris and has a "Sexy Shop" next to the front door along with a regular "working girl." I don't think I would have stayed there if I had known the location was so bad.

Holiday Inn Bastille

Overall, very clean, nice modern hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. However, hotel was under renovation and some amenities to include ice and room service were not available. In addition, found it odd that we had to specifically request an iron and leave a deposit while using it.
