I chose the hotel because of its closeness to a great film archive and library and theater, The Cinematheque Francais, where I was doing sabbatical research on world cinema. I'm a professor of film studies in an American college. I was pleased to discover that the Ibis Style brand is a cut above the standard Ibis hotels scattered across Europe. A bit more expensive, but not horribly so (on Parisian standards). The room was smallish, but with a comfortable bed, attractive decor, and a wonderful walk-in shower..And a TV connecting you to multiple cultures throughout Europe.
But the biggest plus in my view is the immediate environment. In comparison to the bustle and noise of the center of Paris, Bercy is a quiet and peaceful alcove of sorts, yet just a few Metro stops away from major tourists sights, and only a 30 minute walk along the Seine to Notre Dame. And just a few minutes away is the lovely and tranquil Parc de Bercy. A convenient sanctuary.
Excellent hotel, it's in an quiet part of Paris and the rooms are actually quite big by Paris standards too. The hotel is also located right next to a metro station that goes directly to the Eiffel tower.
10/10 it's ok.
"Nice hotel 1 block from train station and Metro."
The hotel was reasonably priced and one block from the train station, Metro subway and major bus stop so an easy walk to access any part of Paris. Our train arrived early and before the hotel check in time but the staff was very pleasant and stored our luggage so we could begin exploring the city. When we returned the room we were assigned was clean, comfy, had a nice bathroom, a thermostat that actually worked and louvers that you could lower over the window that faced a busy street that blocked out the noise and light. We had a very good nights sleep in comfy bed with fluffy pillows, unlike several other hotels we stayed at in Europe on our two week vacation.

The BEST WESTERN Aurore was completely renovated in the summer of 2002 and offers each guest a smiling and dynamic welcome …More
.....everything was fantastic. The people on the reception was very nice. The bedroom and the shower box was small but was ok for the price I paid. The tv doesn't have cable channel
and sometimes was boring . The only think i was a litle upset was with the cleaners that make noise and bang doors about 7am, every day.
