Guest Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 135 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn Gare De Lyon Bastille The staff were courteous, and helpful. The room by Paris standards was large and well equipped. The price of the hotel was also reasonable in respect to the location. October 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice location and hotel stay Very modern, well apppointed, and clean. Very good experience and just near a Metro stop and the Gare de Lyon (main) train station in Paris. Be very careful of the room rates, as when "the season" changes (aka "Billing"), the room rates can skyrocket! This is common in many hotels. October 23, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a great experience We booked two double rooms, got two with single beds, plus a fold-down already down. Why? Toiletries were not renewed at all while we were there. We asked for English tea (instead of fruit infusions) in the room several times but never delivered. Late checkout had been arranged, but we were still locked out on the last day. The lift was broken but no notices above ground floor, so we got briefly stuck. Minor point, but as a Gold member I expect to be acknowledged and receive a decent room - ours was not nearly as good as others in this hotel. Overall, not good at all. Not a great advert for Holiday Inns. Won't be back. October 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Location, Nice Hotel We stayed at the Holiday Inn Paris - Gare De Lyon Bastille in October of 2014. The staff were extraordinarily helpful and friendly. Arriving early in the morning, they were able to get us into one of our two rooms at about 09:00 AM. This was a great help and pleasant surprise. The rooms, albeit small by US standards, were clean, modern and comfortable. The staff was quick to provide additional pillows and an iron board when requested. The breakfast was traditional English but at 18E, a bit pricey. Internet was good in the lobby, bar, and restaurant, but spotty in the guest room. The proximity to the Gare makes it an excellent choice for sightseeing and excursions. October 22, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gepflegte Ambiente in zentraler Lage von Paris Das Hotel war sauber, gepflegt und durchaus auch familiär. Aufmerksame Bedienung im Restaurant mit reichhaltigem Frühstücksbuffet. Perfekt und sehr nah gelegen am Gare de Lyon (inkl. Parkhaus), in Gehdistanz zu Notre Dame und dem Quartier Latin. October 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great place to rest between daily ventures. We stayed 6 nights in Paris and the first thing you will appreciate about this hotel is its location to Gare de Lyon. The hotel staff were used to dealing with english speaking patrons and were helpful with all of our questions. Rooms were clean and quiet....beds comfortable. We were out the door by 9 am each day and pulled back in around 10-11 pm each night. October 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paris - Gare De Lyon Bastille We would stay here again. The staff was always friendly and assisted with whatever we needed. There are plenty of electrical outlets, the mini fridge works great The air conditioning works fantastic the hot water comes on right away Cons: Bed was a little too firm for our taste Bathroom door is very LARGE and HEAVY. Two people cannot occupy the bathroom at the same time If someone is using the toilet, the other person cannot walk in because the big heavy door is in the way. October 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Hotel; Good Location I have used this hotel several times before because it is an IHG hotel and it is excellently located near the Opera Bastille, and is a pleasant walk from Notre Dame and the Latin Quarter (so there is no need to worry about missing the last Metro back to the hotel). The hotel is very safe and very comfortable. The rooms are a generous size (especially for central Paris) and most importantly, the beds are comfortable. October 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Short stop Only stayed one night for an early train connection the following day. Usual Holiday Inn efficient service October 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and friendly service This hotel was perfect after a long journey up from the South of France. Close to the river and walk to Notre Dame. THe hotel was really clean, comfortable and friendly and proffesionally run. Would defenitely recommend October 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful start to our holiday A four day layover in Paris was an excellent experience for a mother/daughter holiday. A wonderful stay at the Holiday Inn - excellent service and very accommodating by allowing us to check in at 9:00am - which was most appreciated after a long fight from Canada! The location near the Gare de Lyon was perfect and close to most Paris 'must-see' attractions! Thanks to the staff that were very helpful at the front desk and answered many of our questions.The breakfast had a wide variety of selections and was always fresh. October 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good location and friendly staff and comfortable room The hotel in a good location in Paris and clean room and facilities are good and the price is good. If I come again to the same place I would stay on this hotel and I recommed it for other people. September 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ONce Room issue fixed good stay Issues with the room on the first night (we arrived after 10:00pm) made for an unhappy first evening. That was fixed on the second day and our stay was much more enjoyable. Only 5 minute walk from Gare de Lyon which will get you anywhere in Paris. Overall the stay was good. September 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient for Station A very convenient hotel to stay when changing trains at Gare de Lyon station.Have stayed in other hotels when in the area but would now stay here in future when changing trains The breakfast is excellent . September 13, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Will never go back to this hotel although i do visit paris evry month The main reason is that A SEX SHOP is located at the hotel enerance so it is not suitable for families and kids. In addition: 1-no upgrade at all for all the three rooms i had. 2-no daily comlementary drinking water. 3-no comlementary fruit platter . 4-The hotel has only one iron for the hotel rooms , i asked for an iron in the morning but i did not get it the whole day. 5- If a lamp fused they never replace. 6-This hotel will never allow 4pm late check out even if they have vaccancy , because i asked for 4 pm late check out they refused and after i checked out ,i cheked that there are rooms available. 7- The breakfast is very poor. 8- you should ask for evrything even the slippers while you will find them in the rooms when you check in U R TREATED SAME AS A WALK IN CLIENT TO RESERVE A ROOM For me i will never go back to this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excelente ubicacion Muy bien ubicado, a dos cuadras de Gare de Lyon y a distancia comoda para caminar hasta Notre Dame y barrio latino, un poco alejado para ir a pie hasta la Torre Eiffel y Campos Eliseos pero nada que no se pueda resolver con el metro. En la entrada del hotel hay un sex shop que puede ser molesto para algunos huéspedes, es discreto pero la zona en general es algo "oscura". September 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gare deLyon Holiday Inn A most enjoyable all too brief stay. The hotel is well located and served by excellent staff. September 3, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Quite Location This is a typical European style hotel. The furnishing are decent and staff somewhat helpful. Having the brand name give you a little assurance that a certain level will be maintained. August 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Convenience The hotel is the most convenient for the Gare de Lyon but the non availability of a restaurant in the evening is a drawback. August 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Städtereise Paris Insgesamt sehr schönes Hotel. Für eine Städtereise sehr gut geeignet. Zentrale gelegen, gute Anbindung an öffentliche Verkehrsmittel und sehr schönes Frühstücksbuffet. Wir sind als Familie (Eltern und zwei volljährige Töchter) mit vier Personen unterwegs gewesen. Diesbezüglich war das als Suite gebuchte Zimmer okay, hätte gerne etwas größer sein können. August 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Service Arrived very late and very tired. Hotel staff very helpful. Good breakfast. August 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good Hotel in Good Location Good hotel close to transport and attractions, easy access to the rest of Paris due to 2 metro lines close to hotel and easy link to CDG from Gare de Lyon via Les Cars Air France Bus. August 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable stay - Very near to Gare du Lyon station. - comfortable bed and clean rooms - Coffee/tea/milk/sugar stocks are not renewed each day. - not much options to eat for vegies. - BF price is costly August 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roomy accommodation and comfortable bed Efficient, friendly reception staff and we were able to check in very late with no problem. Room was spacious and had all the usual amenities - tea/coffee making facilities, toiletries, choice of pillows. No problems experienced. And very handy for Gare de Lyon. August 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed, very quiet, close to station Great service from front desk staff, all could speak very good English and were very helpful.
