An old favourite
This is a basic French 2 star hotel in a convenient location. During the years we have been stayed there, more businesses have opened nearby.

Noisy street with bars underneath hotel and alomg avenue. No air con meant ypu had to leave windpws open as it had been a very warm day. Booked for one night simply for convenience of Gare De Lyon. Cost effective in that respect. Lift so small couldnt get 2 people and large suitcases in at same time. Also had to rry amd grapple with luggage on leaving on the stairs as lift door opens outwards onto stairs

Perfect place close to Gare de Lyon
Perfect if you need to leave early from Gare de Lyon. The place is clean and bathroom was brand new. Be mindful that there is no air con in the rooms so it might be an issue during summer.

Great for Gare de Lyon station.
Good for overnight stay near the Gare de Lyon railway station.. Very small, old building but clean rooms. Tiny shower. Tiny elevator, with steps up or down onto each floor. Tight spiral staircase up all floors quite amazing to look at from the top. not suitable for less agile visitors.

Low marks
The Hotel is well located near Gare de Lyon. Besides the ridiculously small room with just enough space to move around with my suitcase the Internet was practically not existent. The attendant downstairs could't care less if you were staying at the Hotel or not. Will not stay there again.
