Overnight stay at Paris
We stayed one night at this hotel just to reconnect our train to Barcelona early in the morning. We couldn't try out their 8 euros breakfast as we had to leave at 6:20 am. Breakfast starts at 6:30 am and they wouldn't accomodate our large group for early breakfast. Room was old but bathroom facilities was great looks newly renovated. Guest services was acceptable. Elevator is good for only 2 person with luggage, Staircase is very narrow and tight if you need to carry up to your room. Location is about 15 mins walk to GARE DE LYON station. Hard to see form the train station as you need to walk down the stairs from the station and then turn right for 300 - 350 meters after crossing a few traffic lights.

Great little find in central Paris
Great hotel especially for the price. Central location next to gare Lyon and numerous cafés and patisseries for take out lunch to the Seine riverbank. Walking distance to Notre Dame, friendly helpful staff that speak English if your French isn't fluent. We would stay there again if ever in Paris again.
