Super convenient location and helpful front desk
Super convenient. From hall 3 at basement of Gare Lyon, take exit. U will see Novotel. Just turn left and there the hotel is. No need to climb steps with ur luggage. 3 minutes walk. Don't follow google map. And if u need to catch plane, just have to go to gare Lyon and take RER line A to chatelet. One stop only. And on the same platform at Chatelet, without u having to move, u can catch RER line to CDG airport. Super convenient. Hotel room is spacious and decent for paris standards. Clean. Front desk is very helpful. U can ask them for hot water as room has no kettle. I highly recommend this place.

Perfect location yet common hotel
Location is very near to the Lyon railway station, around 5-10 minutes walking distance. Very small room, my check-in luggage is difficult to move in thourgh the door. Everything is clean, having one window, no air conditioner, no coffee/tea maker, very smaller bathroom no bathroom door, so the shower water can easily flow outside into the living room. There are supermarket and restaurant nearby, easy to find food to eat. I've booked from website, cost S$100, around euro 65 per night. City tax euro 0.99 per person per night is charged when you check out. Overall, it is a basic hotel only good for catch train, not comfortable for stay longer.

Non cooperative NIGHT shift staff. Not ready to serve normal tap water even. Lift was very small for luggage and have to carry luggage by stairs. Wifi connectivity was VERY VERY POOR No plug connecting points. Economy rooms were very conjusted

Functional, but a tight squeeze.
The hotel was clean, comfortable and functional. It was convenient for the Gare de Lyon with plenty bars and restaurants nearby. However our room was on the fifth floor accessed by a lift which was a very tight squeeze and could only just about take two of us with our suitcases. I've seen bigger telephone boxes! The alternative was a steep, spiral staircase.

Convenient location to get the train in Gare de Lyon the next morning. Nice staff at the reception. Rooms are very basic clearly but fine. Only point is walls are thin so if you have noisy neighbours this is not ideal
