This hotel had very helpfull and friendly staff , and beautiful rooms.And also a parking nearby witch is very good and safe
Location is good for catching Orly bus and close to metro station.
Long and narrow stairways up to the reception and no fridge.
Excellent room and location for our needs. Only 2 stops from Montparnasse station.Decor supurb. Staff helpful offering to carry bags as the lift was out of order.
Location - 50 m from a RER/Metro station (three stops from the city center, direct RER line to CDG, and a direct bus line to Orly). The view was very nice (yes - Tour Eiffel was visible from our room :) )
The stairs up to the reception are rather narrow and steep (but very beautifully decorated) - they might be a challenge for a person with decreased mobility.
The location (very close to the Orlybus stop when we were there), and the attentive staffs. My father got problem with his credit card, and the staff when we checked in helped to find the solution (phone numbers to cal, website to visit, etc) on the internet. The staff when we checked out helped us with carrying the luggage downstairs; when we were prepared to carry the luggage by ourselves (and do it in 2-3 rounds *traveling with senior parents who have problems lifting heavy suitcase).
We only stayed for 1 night and left early in the morning, so didn't really feel the difference. When we stayed it was quite warm so a fan might help. I don't know if it is provided at different class of the room.. but it was not a problem.
Clean and cozy hotel, there is nothing superplus but all is sufficient. The underground station is near, the restaurants and many cafes are across the street.
It is an adventure to park the car in the 7-story parking – sharp turns and many cars ever on the roof :-) Steep stairs – the elevator starts only from reception on the 1st floor.
Location is great, room was huge by Paris standards, price was competitve. Did I mention the location? After about 50 visits to Paris I was very pleased to have finally found the Lion. I will recommend it to all my friends.
Excellent staff. Helped us plan our days and even let us leave our luggage after we checked out for a full day!
The bed cover wasn't changed when we got there. The waste bin wasn't emptied regularly
The facilities were standard for a Euro hotel. Rooms were reasonably quiet. Breakfast was good and price was appropriate for what you received. Staff were helpful. Excellent location near Denfert-Rochereau station. Many restaurants, bakeries and shops nearby. Excellent frommagerie nearby. Wifi access worked well. Quick response when asked to modify reservation.
Bath tub with spray handle only-- no showers.
The location of the hotel is excellent. Denfert-Rochereau is one of the stations of rer b which connects to the airport. And it is a station of two metro lines which connects to the many attractions in Paris easily. Our room has a balcony which could view the Eiffel Tower. This is definitely a bonus of our trip! The staff including the hotel maids are all cheeful and helpful. Thank you for the staff who offered to carry my baggage down to the ground floor. We would definitely recommend this hotel to our family and friends :d
It would be nicer if our room price includes breakfast. But it is ok as there are many restaurants and a supermarket downstairs. And it took us to walk few stairs before arriving to the reception floor. It is fine to us.
lovely hotel so near to things,easy transport links,very friendly staff,will be back but will book room with a view next time
When I arrived the receptionist was extremely rude to me. I travel a lot for work and stay in many hotels and I have never been spokem to like this on arrival before. When I got to my room it seemed the internet was not working and I did not want to talk to the receptionist again. Next morning I asked about the internet and it seems its just the information provided is completely wrong, but they do not bother to give the correct information unless you go and ask. This time the (different) receptionist was extremely patronising, as if it was obvious the information was wrong and I should have known what to do. I did not request a wake up call but received one shortly before 6am, after which I could not get back to sleep. It seemed this was just a mistake by the staff. The room was small and the bed clothes were dirty. The tv had pornographic channels with no parental control. This used to be quite a nice hotel many years ago.
I stayed in the Hotel du Lion for 2 nights mainly as a transit point. I specifically chose the hotel for its location near Denfert-Rocheraeu RER station for the train to the airport and Gare Montparnasse. The location is very convenient - literally outside metro station, nearby supermarket. You have to climb a flight of stairs to reach reception. The room: ask for a room with a city view - at night I looked out my window to see the Montparnasse and Eiffel Towers all lit up! Air conditioning, safe, wardrobe area, free wifi, Room was actually quiet and bed comfortable. The toilet is separate to the bathroom and plenty of storage space for toiletries around the sink. I also advised them about my late arrival (after 10pm) so the front receptionist was all aware of my plans and was waiting for me. I would definitely stay here again - wish I had been able to stay longer!
Shower is hand-held - I find these difficult to use!
Excellent location, Metro, RER & the green open top bus right on your door step. Hotel room was basic but functional, had no compaints. We loved the area, lots of lovely restaurant`s and bar`s which seemed to be frequented by locals. Definately would stay here again...
The location is very good. It is close to train 4 which is easy go to two diffrient airports. You also can choose shuttle bus to ORL. Lots restaurants , McDonald,supper market, and Chinese restaurant. Zara is surprised me. Hotel is clean .
