Good 6.0
Friendly front, sad breakfast & room
People at the front desk were all super friendly. But the room was small and a bit noisy. What was saddest was the breakfast. Coffee, juice, and breads were available but nothing else... The simplest breakfast I've ever had in France.

As always the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable. The location is good and has a metro just outside and RER around the corner. The new Liberation museum across the road was informative.

Hotel du Lion
I stayed at the Hotel du Lion for six nights in September 2019 and found it to be of incomparable convenience and value. I booked the hotel online some months in advance, and in so doing, was able to secure a rate of less than $100 per night - unheard of in Paris. The room would be considered spartan by American standards, but had all of the conveniences I needed. Besides, I didn’t come to Paris to sit in a hotel room. The location was terrific with the Metro and RER being steps from the hotel entrance. The view I had looked onto an intersection and that alone provided hours of entertainment. And yet, despite being a second floor room on a busy street, it was surprisingly quiet. The management even contacted me prior to my stay to advise me of pre-booking popular attractions and to ask if there was anything I needed to make my stay more enjoyable. I had only two minor complaints. One was that there was no bracket for holding the water wand for the shower and the other was that the WiFi had occasional problems. The breakfast could have also included some meat slices. Otherwise, a perfect place to stay for a budget minded traveler. Highly recommended!

Great little find.
Great location steps from metro #4 and #6 lines as well as the RER to to the airports. Couldn’t beat the location for quick access into the heart of town. Great neighborhood with restaurants, Catacombs and WWII museum across the street. Very happy with our stay.

Good short stay
The accommodation was good for the price and was sufficient for the length of stay, 2 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was simple but enough to prepare you for the day. If I had to stay any longer the shower would have become an issue. Luckily I am not a large person otherwise I would have not got into it

A surprisingly good hotel
My usual hotel near Denfert-Rochereau was booked up, so I went with Hotel du Lion, and it turned out to be a good move. Comfortable room with nice air circulation, great location (for RER B to CDG esp) with 2 Metro lines just 5 steps to the hotel entrance. Only thing -- you do need to climb a narrow set of stairs to get to the hotel lobby (there's an internal lift/elevator once you get there), so be warned if you have luggage or have mobility concerns. Other thing -- the cleaning is a bit shoddy, as I found a used towel with wine stains and hair on it... But overall a good place for that part of Paris, so I'd recommend it.

Great hotel in great location
The hotel is very well located, it is clean and modern. The personnel are fantastic. As good as you can get in Paris. The only problem is that the walls are thin, so it can be very noisy sometimes. When the cleaning service starts you have to wake you like it or not.

Good value and easy transport links to the door
With a Metro right outside the front door it's great for getting into town. It's a little too far to walk though so you won't be as likely to use the hotel as a base - more as a place to sleep. The restaurant area looks more like a hostel canteen so I ate across the road at a traditional French cafe which was brilliant. There are a number of shops and restaurants around and lots of transport links. I wouldn't hesitate to go back here - the staff were friendly and the room was clean (though very small). I was on my own though, so I was fine with a smaller room - it was just a bed for the night. The bed was firm and comfortable, the shower was good and lots of hot water. The wifi was very good even though I was on the top floor. I rated the hotel at the top end but without raving about it. That's not a criticism, it's not setting out to be the Ritz, but what it does do it does well.
