This hotel is very clean, boasting nicely decorated rooms, fantastic helpful and well informed staff, great breakfast and free internet...in a very convenient location close to Gare de Lyon and the metro. A real gem for the price.
A cheap hotel handy for the city centre. I only stayed 1 night while passing through Paris enroute to Italy. Room was clean but basic. If you want your own room at hostel prices this is the place for you,if want a nice hotel look elsewhere.

.....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.
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.
This was my first trip to Paris and only had two days. This property was recommended by someone who previously stayed there and I would also recommend to others. The property is conveniently located across the street from the Gare de Lyon station (direct line to/from Gare du Nord); we used the train multiple times throughout the day to get to different tourist sites (travel to both sides of the river). If you prefer to walk, the Seine River was about 3 streets away where you could us the boardwalk to follow the river to Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, and more (which we did day 1, returned on train). There were many different restaurant and cafe choices in the area along with a super market – expensive and reasonably priced. The hotel rooms were very small, but clean and orderly. Just don't plan to spend much time in room. The front desk staff was on duty 24 hours and was willing to offer food and site-seeing recommendation – plus the spoke fluent English. I would stay again!
