        A gem at a great location ”

        I have been to Paris several times and stayed in various Arrondissement. Next time I’ll book this hotel again. The location is fantastic no matter if you arrive in Orly or CDG, it’s super easy to get there with one bus or RER train, no need to drag your luggage up and down the metro system labyrinths (which I love without luggage!). The hotel itself is a hidden gem. Not a luxurious gem but for the star rating and price. It is stunningly clean and with super friendly staff, the room large enough. Elevator available on case you’re lucky to get an upper floor room with city views. Cafes, bars and restaurants just outside the street, as is the entrance to the catacombs. RER and two metro lines bring you quickly to any place in the city. The hotel will store your luggage if you arrive early or leave late.

My parents and I all had a very good stay. The hotel just at the exit to the metro and there are several restaurants down stairs but surprisingly was quite at night. Good valued to stay!

        We stayed during the hottest days on record. We weren’t booked into a room with A/C, but the manager moved us into one on our second night. It was hugely appreciated. My rating is based on the fact that Hotel du Lion is a two star hotel. It has an elevator (some 2 star hotels don’t). You’ll need to carry your luggage up on flight of stairs to get to the lobby though. The metro is right outside the door and a direct train to CDG is just five minutes walk. Super convenient.

        Much to recommend ”

        I chose this hotel mostly based on price and location. It’s a good hotel and I’m glad we were there. Some things you should know: Positives: the location is excellent. Right by the subway, the RER station, busses to Orly, loads of restaurants, grocery, shops, major sites. The entrance to the catacombs is across the street. So is the RER station. The staff were very nice and helpful. The rooms were reasonably furnished and comfortable. It was clean*. The breakfast was good. However: There is a flight of steps to the lobby. If you can’t handle steps, you won’t be happy. It wasn’t a problem for us and a member of the staff volunteered to help with bags when we left. One of our rooms smelled of bleach and the other of cigarettes. It’s a no-smoking hotel but the walls were covered with fabric. Somebody must have smoked at one time. There was a minor plumbing issue in one room. To be fair, we never mentioned any of this and they surely would have tried to do something.

        the hotel is in a very convenient location. there is 2 lines of metro in front and the train that goes directly to charle de gaulle airport. There is also a bus to go to Orly Airpoirt. Between 00:00 - 05:00 there is the night bus N14. The single bed room is clean and silent with good bed. The toilet was a bit small and there was just one plug to charge the phone in the room.

        A wonderful time in Paris”

        I stayed at Hotel du Lion for two restful nights. The room was small but adequate for 1-2 people. It had television and a view toward Tour Montparnasse. The bathtub was welcome after a long day. Location was ideal for meetings at Observatoire de Paris, right over the Denfert-Rochereau Metro station and across from the Catacombs. Staff was friendly and spoke English. Highest recommendation!

        Didn't sleep, breakfast was terrible and they told me to go out to eat better!”

        I chose this hotel based on location and cleanliness reviews. However, since we had the misfortune of travelling during the "social movements" period (strikes), we couldn't benefit from location. Was it clean? Yes, it was, but... room too noisy, shower hot/cold and slippery, breakfast consisted of industrial and old products (hard bread) and a rude waiter that told us to go eat elsewhere if we weren't happy. The building is dangerous, in case of fire you'll only have narrow steep stairs to run (the hotel starts on the 1st floor so don't go with luggage, there is no elevator to level 1). I swear this was the last hotel I booked without considering the worst reviews online. Don't go!

        Great location, amazing view, excellent value

        We had a pleasant stay at Hotel du Lion. The location was fantastic right on the B RER line (with other metro connections) which made it easy coming from the Eurostar station and also exiting via CDG airport. Having stayed in other Paris hotels previously we had low expectations about room size and this was met at this hotel. However the surprise was the view from our room to the Eiffel Tower from the 7th floor! Staff were all very helpful. Bathroom was compact and water pressure wasn't great from the 7th floor however very minor points. Didn't eat at the hotel - there were so many restaurants within walking distance - so can't comment on Food/Dining but had to leave a score so selected 5/5. Hotel provided excellent value.

        Value for Money”

        Convenient, Near Supermarket, Good City View

        Hotel du Lion is great for its location (right above the Metro station "Denfert-Rochereau"), in which that station is an inter-changing station for the train to/from CDG Airport and also subway to other parts of the City. I stayed in room 65 and the city view in the morning and the night were pretty good. I would also like to add that all the staffs that I spoke to are nice and helpful, particularly in Paris you can seldom find English speaking French (with such caring attitude!)!!! However, I would say the dust in the room (probably due to the busy roads right outside) and the tiny and boxy shower are things that makes me want to try another hotel next time.

        What A Find:)”

        Location, Metro & Cafes

        Great Montparnasse location. Lovely, helpful staff. Clean, small room with balcony that you could only stand on. Air con quiet enough to leave on overnight. The reception & small elevator is located on the first floor so make sure you can lift your cases up one flight of stairs or I am sure staff will help you. This hotel is surrounded by many café options for meals, across the road from the Cattacombs & had a metro station right out front We enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly stay there again.

        located near train station”

        this is a small hotel with reasonable sized rooms and very helpful staff. most importantly, it is very conveniently located within sight of the denfert-rochereau train station which is a few stops from gare du nord. so if one arrives in paris by eurostar, this is a good hotel to stay at in the montparnasse area.

        clean, safe, good public transportationa and airport access

        Hotel entrance looks suspicious but the hotel is very safe and clean. Rooms are very small but that is normal in Paris, especially in this price range. No disturbing noise from the street at nights. In morning you can hear other customers using the elevator or the stairs. We stayed at 3rd floor, 2nd door from the elevator. If you like this area (14th arr.) then I can recommend this hotel. It was also very easy to use Metro and RER lines to visit the Eiffel tower and other famous locations - they are only 10-20 minutes away.

        Very near to metro station, easy to travel to everywhere

        The hotel is located just a few steps from Denfert Rochereau station. From here you can easily travel to all places of Paris. There are a lot of cafes, restaurants and convenient shops around. The room is rather small but clean. The hotel staff is also quite friendly.
