Timhotel Paris Gare de Lyon

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

There were plenty of restaurants in this area and I chose this hotel as it was an easy walk to Gare de Lyon. Although a small room, it was just fine for our purposes, especially at the price we paid. The staff were friendly and helpful.

This hotel is close to one of the main train stations in Paris. It is nowhere near the tower or any other familiar Paris landmarks but it is an easy matter to get around Paris using the train. There's plenty of places to eat near by and a small supermarket as well. The rooms were pretty large with bathrooms. The beds were comfy and so were the pillows. The reception guy was pretty rude and not very helpful. He didn't tell us we had breakfast included until the second day. And was annoyed with us when we left the hotel and didn't hand in the room key even though someone was still in the room. The continental breakfast is limited and served in a very unattractive room. Apart from reception I can't really fault it too much.

Employe very Kind and helpfull. Great Service to leave the luggage in the Hotel of u arrive earlier. Very Central if u Use the Public Transport. Rooms are very small. Ca. 8 squaremeters. No usable stairs Just a small Elevator. Great roomcleaning everyone das. Top job

Well situated and silent hotel when you need to be close to city centre and Gare de Lyon. The breakfast is OK, but average standard. The rooms as well as the service are OK and you only need to leave the rooms until 12H00.

- no device to iron my shirt (first time in 10 years of weekly business travaels ..) - an old and dirty room (candys stuckeon the carpet, holes on the walls, dirt everywhere, rotten wallpaper, and so on) - more than 160 € a night Just unbeleivable, full refound would be a fair move ...

Good location, clean rooms, clean bath, Metro Station 300m away, a lot of restaurants near the hotel, very friendly staff, breakfast excellent, no loud noise, all the hot spots are very easy to reach.

Overall OK but was surprised to find no iron and ironing board available at reception and none provided in the room. Also, at 130euro, for that quality of room and services, seemed slightly overpriced.

As stated and displayed on the site! Easily recommendable to other travelers, friends and family!!! I would go back again if the opportunity presents!! The siting and location is great, and it's easily located, and primed around the Central station area!! Good for both traveling parties and couples!!! Keep it up!!

I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It doesn't deserve a 3 star rating, its more like a 1 star. I had to endure this place for a whole week and I can safely say its the closest feeling you can experience to being in a prison cell. The room was so small that there was no room to put your suitcase flat on the floor and open it. So I had to move the stall that was in the corner and place it next to the other side of the bed next to the bedside cupboard to make a platform for it to sit on. Not that I would have wanted to put my case on the floor as the carpet was filthy dirty including the walls, it was very run down. There was only 12 inches gap at the end of the bed to get to the bathroom and as the TV was on the wall I had to limbo past it every time to stop hitting my head on it. Needless to say I did forget several times. Bathroom was tiny, shower was a tray with just a curtain round it the smelt of tobacco. The curtain did nothing to stop the water from going on the floor to had to use several towels to mop it up everyday. Only positive was that the bathroom was clean. Terrible lighting in the room, it was so dark and depressing I think if I had to endure it any longer I would have gone mad. Also I wouldn't think it would be too much trouble to have at least one channel that broadcasted in English even if it was just world service news, its not very welcoming for visitors from abroad. Breakfast was just ok, nothing special. Im so glad I didn't have to pay for it myself as it was a business trip. I have stayed in TRAVEL LODGES in England that are far superior. PLEASE PLEASE dont waste you money!!

Very nice room and location. Bit disappointed that on the ground you can hear everyone coming in and out of hotel. Staff are mostly very nice and helpful. Room cleanliness was very good. Would recommend for a short stay
