Mimi Families - 11/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good location - lots of RER/metro options from Gare de Lyon or Gare d'Austerlitz (clear walking route across the Seine from front of gare de lyon). The swimming pool was a draw when booking, but it is small and it was impossible to actually swim for exercise due to all the families playing in it, even quite late in the evening. Breakfast was a bit chaotic - there wasn't enough room in the restaurant for all guests, resulting in many (including us one morning) having to sit in the bar area with low tables, and wander in/out of the restaurant [since I had a broken wrist, carrying everything on one tray single-handed was impossible, so a lot of long fetching trips were needed - not great when you're in a hurry]. On the plus side, bedroom was comfortable and clean, and relaxing to return to after long days of park promenades, shopping, and museum viewings. Teenager was very happy with her comfy sofabed, which is rarely the case. Dinner in the restaurant was pleasant with lovely waiting staff and good food.

Well located & Confortable!

Hotel inside is good. Disappointed internet was out for a day. Surrounding area is occupied by homeless or similar. Hotel keeps entrance locked.

Dear Mr L., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Paris Gare de L.. The whole area around the Gare de L. was effectively without internet for 2 days. Although this failure is external to the operation of the hotel, we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience it caused.

Excellent Hotel in Paris, strategically located next to the Gare de Lyon. I had booked an executive room with a terrace and I was not disappointed, the room being clean, spacious, and well equipped with a big balcony where you can relax with a cup of tea/coffee. Breakfast was very good even in these COVID-19 times and the staff were very attentive. All in all a very good experience, and I will surely come back.

I had read some bad reviews about this hotel but had chosen this place because of its closeness to the train station. My kids and I enjoyed the hotel very much. Breakfast was decent, room was spacious, clean and quite. My kids enjoyed the pool as well.

Andreas G Friends getaway - 01/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

Proved to be an excellent location due to limitations of transport due to strikes. Excellent service, helpful and smiling stuff willing to assist, the room was ready early as we arrived in the morning, very clean rooms and the cleaning ladies deserve the best and a quite rich breakfast. Enjoyed every day and night during our Xmas holidays.

Dear Andreas G, thank you for taking the time to leave us a comment. We are really delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We will be happy to welcome you again. A bientôt.

Slightly Disappointing

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

chrsbocock Couples - 14/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

The hotel was undergoing some refurbishment and there were workmen working in the next room. Lots of noise, plastic sheeting in the corridors. Although tea and coffee were provided in the room there were only paper cups, rather spoit the experience. Overall disappointing for the price.

Dear chrsbocock, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback following your stay in my hotel. Indeed, some renovations are currently underway in Novotel Paris Gare de Lyon. The information is given on the AccorHotels website and we have made a communication to all our customers whose contact details were known, but apparently some have obviously not arrived at destination and I am sincerely sorry. We are as well currently working on the reduction or even removal of plastic and disposable items in the hotel (bottles, cups, glasses...) I hope to welcome you again. A bientôt ! Serge Lenormand

Hans Rudolf H Couples - 13/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

We stayed for one week. In spite of building works in the hotel, we met really friendly hotel-people from Novotel. Many thanks for your cheerful engagement during this hard time for you. The only missing point from our point of view was the below average heating in the hotel room.

Dear Hans Rudolf H, Thank you very much for your encouraging message. My team and I work continuously to minimize all inconveniences and it is nice from you to notice it. A bientôt ! Setge Lenormand

Excellent Location in Paris with Free Breakfast for Children

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

anonymousD6846KT Family - 11/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

Stayed 2 nights. Everything is good but the cleanliness around the hotel building is average (also smell like Paris). Breakfast for Adult costs EUR 16 but for a family with 2 kids, average is about EUR 8 per person and is reasonable.

Dear anonymousD6846KT, Thank you for sharing your feedback about Novotel Paris Gare de Lyon. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in the hotel and in Paris! We are currently working with the City Council to sort the outside cleanliness situation out. Breakfast amounts to 18EUR ofr an adult, and it is indeed free under 16 years old. I wish you a very good day, See you soon,

Great hotel in prime location

MrTCDD Family - 07/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is perfectly situated next to the Gare De Lyon. Perfect for exploring Paris. From start to finish the staff were brilliant, always quick to meet our needs. The room was spacious with a great view if the square. The breakfast included each morning was perfect with 2 rooms available, one being a family room equipped with entertainers. Nothing like starting the day dancing with a Smurf. The pool was a great addition which the kids enjoyed plus the kids area in the lobby was a lifesaver. Great hotel with lovely staff.

Dear MrTCDD, Thank you very much for recommending Novotel Paris Gare de Lyon. I am so glad to see you loved the hotel and its facilities! I shared your review with the staff, which thank you as well! I am looking forward to welcome you back very soon, A wonferful day to the family !
