For being a 5-minute walk to the Gare de Lyon, with its multitudinous lines of transportation, it was actually quiet. It was an excellent value for money.|Of course, double-paned windows helped, and although visible from the front of the train station, it is actually on a residential street a block away from the biggest bustle of the station.|Bed was comfortable and breakfast was hearty.|Although we wished we could have been on the top floor, where they offered to upgrade us, I really needed the elevator, so we stayed on the 6th floor.|We enjoyed a drink at the elegant Le Train Bleu and took some great pictures on Rue Cremieux on our way to the Seine, The Arsenal Basin was interesting, as I had never seen it before.|If we had had more time we would have strolled on the Coulee Verte.|Easy walk to Picpus Cemetery and Place des Vosges

The location is very close to La Gare de Lyon with lots of eat/drinks places in the surroundings. The hotel room was very clean, simple but very cosy and peaceful. I didn’t try the breakfast so I cannot rate it, but overall I really have enjoyed my staying. Staff was very helpful too. Merci!
