The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's two blocks from the Gare de Lyon and a metro station (my husband and I walked to the hotel with our luggage), there are many cafes/brasseries around so it's convenient if you have to/want to
eat in the area. The proximity to the Seine and the Gare d'Austerlitz make it easier to move around the city (and other parts of France). Considering the excellent location this is a great value hotel. It is very clean, and the people at the front desk were friendly.

Short walk from hotel
The Rue de Lyon (down the street from the hotel) has many nice cafes, brasseries, and restaurants. The prices go down as you walk in the opposite direction of the Gare de Lyon.
