Refreshments

Such a shame hotel doesn't have tea/coffee in the rooms. Have to remember to bring water back - but not quite the same as a hot drink! Otherwise staff and hotel fine for what we wanted.

Great location, has everything you need

Awesome location just down the street from the Paris Gare de Lyon train station and metro. Staff was also very friendly and helpful - they were nice enough to let me print my train and plane tickets in the lobby. Also, a huge plus was that the hotel had a (lockable) luggage room so you can leave your bags there during the day before checking in or even after checking out without worrying as much about security. Only downside is that if you have a room facing the street, it can get a little noisy.

Great location - tiny room

This hotel is about 2 blocks from Gare de Lyon. We arrived early in the morning and they were happy to store our bags and provide a restroom. The desk clerk then gave us a great map, directions to all of the big tourist attractions (Arc, Notre Dame, Eiffel, Champs Elysee) and info on where to eat dinner. We spent the whole day walking and arrived back at the hotel at midnight. The desk clerk handed us the key - our check in was already done! The room was small but clean. The shower was tiny. And the window was internal into the courtyard where the HVAC system was. The location was worth the small room. And the creperie right down the street was awesome!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Creperie is about a half of a block away. They open at noon. The food was amazing! And the service was great. We had to wait 30 minutes til they opened and it was worth it. The desk clerk had said she eats there alot and loves it. I understand why she loves it!

Horrible Customer service

Too bad I already paid non-refundable to this hotel otherwise, I would not stay here. This hotel has the rudest, pompous staff as well as manager I have encountered.

We'd stay again!

The Hotel de France Gare de Lyon Bastille is a quaint little hotel in a perfect location...within walking distance of the Seine and the Gare de Lyon train/metro station. The price was great, our room was clean AND we had air conditioning! The front desk staff was very accomodating. We arrived several hours before check-in and they allowed us to store our luggage, free of charge, in their luggage room. We also had to check out about 8 hours before catching the overnight train to Germany and they allowed us to leave our bags again. Then it was just a short 5 minute walk down the street to the train station. There are few ammenities but they do have free wifi. Breakfast is not included in the price, but you can walk to the corner bakery for a delicious morning pastry. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Very good value!

Very convenient location for many attractions! Good service! Next time they remodel consider putting in a shower curtain, that would make it perfect!

Super nice staff, great location.

The hotel is right between Gare de Lyon and Bastille- and an easy walk to city center (Notre Dame/Latin District across the river.) The hotel *can* be a little noisy depending on who the guests are- you can hear fairly easily your ajacent room's activities- but it was quiet when everyone was being polite. Rooms are very small and bare bones-- but clean taken care of. It's a very typical Parisian hotel- maybe a bit smaller. Tiny shower in my single room (which had a twin bed.) They provide a bar of soap. That's it. Bring everything else yourself. Wi-fi worked well. The staff was excellent. Super nice. I was especially fond of Antoine. Very friendly and made me feel welcomed there. Luxury hotel? No. Great location? Absolutely. (If you're a runner or walker, like me, it's a block from Paris's promenade de plantee- a beautiful above ground walking path. It's out of traffic and lined with lovely flowers and foliage. It goes exactly 1 mile from start to the end of the wooden footbridge- and another 1.25, if you keep going another two blocks, it continues along another awesome path through the gardens.) My only warning is it does get really packed on Sunday afternoons. Mornings and weekdays are usually very quiet.

Comfortable, friendly and great location.

A very good value for money. Clean with nice bathroom. Within walking distance of various restaurants and bars as well as metro. Really couldn't have asked for better. Staff is friendly and speaks English. The Wifi connection is not available in the rooms, only in the lobby and is slow but that is really the only negative point I can think of.
