I've stayed at worse...
Among the reasons I picked this hotel was that it has air conditioning. First night, the electricity went out and the a/c never came back on. Staff said there was nothing they could do as the hotel was booked. Spent a sleepless night with windows open listening to all the varied noises of a busy city. Next day, the staff offered to move us into the room across the hall, but warned that the previous occupant complained that the room was too cold. Decided that a cold quiet room was better than a hot noisy one. Learned that the reason the room was cold was that the thermostat wouldn't go above 20c. Spent a sleepless night alternating between being exposed to the cold air and sweltering beneath the thick comforter. When I asked about a discount on the room rate to accommodate for our discomfort, all we were offered was a free visit to the breakfast buffet. Paris is expensive, but 13 Euros for warm yogurt and dry croissants is robbery. Glad it was free. Credit to the kitchen staff, though, for working his butt off to keep the breakfast area tidy and stocked. Most of these small hotel buildings are very old, so I can't fault the hotel for having cramped rooms and thin walls. But there's no excuse for a broken hair dryer, leaky shower head and scary stains on the carpet and window coverings. TimHotel is a local chain, and I cannot speak for their other locations. But I'd recommend against Timhotel Paris Gare de Lyon.

Oven room (The Dungeon)
I arrived at the hotel at night. I had been traveling all day by train. My first impression when I got to the room was that it did not look like the pictures I saw on the Expedia site. In order to get in you had to open two consecutive doors (5 inches apart) which made it look odd. The room had a funny smell, and the window had no view. Outside the room window, it was dirty mostly by bird poop and water. One of the soaps was open like somebody had just been there. It was very difficult to sleep because the hotel room did not have any air conditioning, and it was very hot. The beds had only a comforter and no sheets. When I went to see the hotel clerk he was very rude and did not speak English. He told me that not all the rooms had air conditioning and that he did not have another room available. My room had no view, it was dark and hot. My son and I had to take showers at 2 in the morning to be able to fall asleep. Also, my daughter had a rash on her arm, which looked like a bug bite. I was lucky to have booked this hotel for only one night. I would definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone.

A great stay 👌
Everything was as expected and I couldn't have asked for a better stay. For the price and location, I am very pleased with my stay here. The positives: my room was clean with towels/bedsheets that felt fresh (and not overused like in some hotels). The bathroom appliances all worked fine and aren't too old. I liked that there was a good amount of complementary shower gel and the body lotion is a nice touch. The reception staff are very friendly and speak English well. My bed was comfortable and a good size, and I was also happy that the TV was a decent size to be able to watch in bed. The in-room air-conditioning was a life-saver during the hot days of August (one of the reasons I chose this hotel in the first place). The negative points I have are very minor and are not complaints, but aspects which have room for improvement. The shower curtain could be cleaner. I would have preferred a ceiling light as opposed to a wall light as it didnt light the whole room up equally. To state the obvious, yes the rooms here are quite small and don't leave a lot of room to move around, however I would much rather pay a reasonable price for a hotel with a decent sized bed and excellent service as opposed to paying over the top for a larger room which I would only spend the night time in.

A Convenient, Comfortable Oasis
I chose this hotel for a one-night stay in Paris primarily due to its proximity to Gare de Lyon, which was a relatively short walk after arriving by train with a rolling bag in tow. I usually chose hotels close to train stations for ease of travel, but oftentimes that translates into increased street noise throughout the night. That was not a problem here. My room was modern, clean, comfortable, and typically Parisian (efficient) in size. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Paris is a city best enjoyed by walking, and I treated myself to a comfortable, scenic walk along the Seine, through the busy streets of the Marais, and into the lively Chatelet area. Notre Dame and the Quartier Latin are also within relatively easy reach. The hotel is located on a side street, so getting in and out via Uber was easy, and there was no drama on the way to DeGaulle airport in the morning. All things considered, I found no disappointments with this property, and I would stay here again without a second thought.

Hotel near Gare de Lyon
We checked in around 4:00 PM and they gave us a room without air conditioning. This was in July and the heat was terrible. I went to the front desk and they said that there was nothing they could do because rooms on the first floor did not have an air conditioning unit yet and they were booked 100% for the night. I told them it was still early, they probably had not assigned all the rooms yet. Then, they gave us another room with an air conditioning unit on the third floor. Let me be clear, staff at the hotel were nice and polite, is just that not all of their rooms have air conditioning. Overall, our stay was OK, just the room and the bathroom were VERY small.
