Location near Gare de Lyon was perfect with many cafes and shops all within walking distance. We were able to walk to Notre Dame and explore the city. The staff was very helpful and polite. The building is older and charming and very clean and green.

Perfect, if you are going to arrive at Gare de Lyon. Having undergone a thorough makeover, everything here is clean and in working order. Our double bedroom was in the ground floor with a bathroom as big as some of the other Parisian hotel rooms. From the ground floor room, we could hear the people on the street. However, it’s...

We stayed a couple of days in Paris returning from the UK to Grenoble. We chose it for its proximity to the Gare de Lyon. The rooms were spotless and quite smartly decorated. We took breakfast, which was fairly basic. We will definitely consider staying here again.

We stayed in Palym for two nights before getting a 9.30am train from Gare du Lyon. The hotel is perfectly located with plenty of places nearby for food and drink. Areas like the Latin Quarter, the Botanic Gardens and Notre Dame were easy to reach on foot with Central Paris a few stops on the Metro. The room was comfortable...

The rooms are exactly as shown on the photograph. I was told all rooms have been fully renovated. The location is just amazing, just facing Gare de Lyon. The staff was very welcoming and caring. Only thing: I was on 6th floor and wifi was quite weak in my room.

Neighbourhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make their homes.
