Citadines Bastille Gare de Lyon
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Very nice rooms with comfortable beds, bathroom and a little kitchen. Even a small balcony, with quiet environment..You can eat in your room buying food in the nearby restaurants or markets.Ask for housekeeping (extra charge), otherwise it is quite disappointing.Location is very, very convenient, just a 50 mts from the metro station.
We stayed overnight in Paris coming from the north and heading to the south. The hotel was close enough to the Gare de Lyon to allow us to walk with rolling luggage. It also had a laundry which we took advantage of . It lacked air conditioning and any sense of decor. It was okay but not great. However, there are many fine cafes and restaurants nearby. It works well as a stopover but I wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay.
Compared to the London Citadines Trafalgar Sq, this stay was very disappointing. A pity since it is only 1 block from the Reuilly-Diderot station on the #1 line and has several cafés nearby, two small grocery stores, a pharmacy, and a tasty Indian Restaurant across the street. The lobby had no central air, the coffee station was not available 24/7 and there were no lids provided for the cups. The rooms had no AC (outside temps 87-91 degrees)...there was only two small portable tabletop fans for the living room and bedroom areas...so neither room was ever cool...the exterior terrace had standing water so we did not leave the door open for ventilation due to mosquitoes; the room with the couch was very cramped when the bed was extended; the sofa pullout bed was not 2 twin (which was a fab surprise in the U.K); the extra deadbolt did not work on the entry door the light outside our room only dimly lit the threshold and surroundings and we were adjacent to exterior stairs and not within the main part of the hotel...not a secure feeling. Additionally, the shower/tub had only a small partition, a clogged shower head which spurted in every direction and the tub had no curtain, so there was the inevitable wet floor after every person's use; facial tissues in the bathroom are not standard fare and we were told by the not so friendly desk clerk on the last night there (8/29), in front of other patrons, that there was a CHARGE each time towels were received after the initial issuance...though they were constantly used for bathroom cleanup and that was not noted on our reservation. She was the least friendly of the staff encountered and when we returned to our room after dark that night, the security door on our floor was propped open by some type of cable installation that was left incomplete. I would not recommend a summer stay and be prepared to be SELF guided. This location is in need of quite a few simple but much needed modern upgrades.
the flat is very close to the subway station, markets, shops, restaurants and services.the flat was nice.the kitchen was well equipped and clean.friendly anf helpfull staff.unfortunately the bathroom was a bit old and not very clean.
This was our 3rd time staying here. It is wonderful. Room is a decent size with good amenities in the kitchenette. Very convenient location. Metro station just at end of street, easy walk to Gare de Lyon for ongoing travel. There is a supermarket just across the road and a lovely boulangerie just around the corner near the metro station. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Also easy access to the Promanade Plantee walk ontop of the viaduc which is really pretty.
