Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paulsnood Fantastic location and room
This was our 5th trip to Paris in the last 6 years and we've stayed in the 5th, 6th, and 7th, so this was our first time in the 12th and on the right bank. The Bastille area has amazing bars and restaurants and the Holiday Inn Bastille is perfectly located to enjoy them. Less than a block from the Gare de Lyon and two blocks from the actual Bastille monument, walking and public transporation was a breeze. Our large room on the 4th floor overlooked the Rue de Lyon, had a small balcony with a nice view of the Gare de Lyon Clock Tower, and was very nicely updated with a comfortable king size bed and large well appointed bathroom. My only small peeve is having to be "buzzed" into the main lobby entrance from outside by the desk staff-especially when we had to wait in the cold for a few minutes sometimes before they got to it. A better system would work with the key card for entry, but everything considered, the hotel was just what we wanted and I would definately return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nico3910 Nice location, Nice room !
The hôtel is nice. Very close to "Gare de Lyon" which convenient for transportation (RER, metro) or even to get the train to South of France.
The hotel is nice and clean. Nice area.

Not only was the registration staff helpful when we checked in, they were helpful each and every time we had a question be it places for dinner or how early to call a cab or the time for breakfast. Lovely hotel and great location.
We will be back.
