Exceptional 10.0
Paris 2019
As always the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable. The location is good and has a metro just outside and RER around the corner. The new Liberation museum across the road was informative.

Hotel du Lion
I stayed at the Hotel du Lion for six nights in September 2019 and found it to be of incomparable convenience and value. I booked the hotel online some months in advance, and in so doing, was able to secure a rate of less than $100 per night - unheard of in Paris. The room would be considered spartan by American standards, but had all of the conveniences I needed. Besides, I didn’t come to Paris to sit in a hotel room. The location was terrific with the Metro and RER being steps from the hotel entrance. The view I had looked onto an intersection and that alone provided hours of entertainment. And yet, despite being a second floor room on a busy street, it was surprisingly quiet. The management even contacted me prior to my stay to advise me of pre-booking popular attractions and to ask if there was anything I needed to make my stay more enjoyable. I had only two minor complaints. One was that there was no bracket for holding the water wand for the shower and the other was that the WiFi had occasional problems. The breakfast could have also included some meat slices. Otherwise, a perfect place to stay for a budget minded traveler. Highly recommended!

Great little find.
Great location steps from metro #4 and #6 lines as well as the RER to to the airports. Couldn’t beat the location for quick access into the heart of town. Great neighborhood with restaurants, Catacombs and WWII museum across the street. Very happy with our stay.

Good 6.0
Good short stay
The accommodation was good for the price and was sufficient for the length of stay, 2 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was simple but enough to prepare you for the day. If I had to stay any longer the shower would have become an issue. Luckily I am not a large person otherwise I would have not got into it

A surprisingly good hotel
My usual hotel near Denfert-Rochereau was booked up, so I went with Hotel du Lion, and it turned out to be a good move. Comfortable room with nice air circulation, great location (for RER B to CDG esp) with 2 Metro lines just 5 steps to the hotel entrance. Only thing -- you do need to climb a narrow set of stairs to get to the hotel lobby (there's an internal lift/elevator once you get there), so be warned if you have luggage or have mobility concerns. Other thing -- the cleaning is a bit shoddy, as I found a used towel with wine stains and hair on it... But overall a good place for that part of Paris, so I'd recommend it.

Great hotel in great location
The hotel is very well located, it is clean and modern. The personnel are fantastic. As good as you can get in Paris. The only problem is that the walls are thin, so it can be very noisy sometimes. When the cleaning service starts you have to wake you like it or not.
