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.

Noisy street with bars underneath hotel and alomg avenue. No air con meant ypu had to leave windpws open as it had been a very warm day. Booked for one night simply for convenience of Gare De Lyon. Cost effective in that respect. Lift so small couldnt get 2 people and large suitcases in at same time. Also had to rry amd grapple with luggage on leaving on the stairs as lift door opens outwards onto stairs

Perfect place close to Gare de Lyon
Perfect if you need to leave early from Gare de Lyon. The place is clean and bathroom was brand new. Be mindful that there is no air con in the rooms so it might be an issue during summer.
