Just over the road from Gare de Lyon. Friendly professional staff, clean and comfortable. Quiet night's sleep. We arrived in Gare du Nord and after a quick and easy metro ride found the hotel easily and we get lost easily.

its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
