Anne Solo - 05/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I had called pleasant stay at this hotel. It was clean and very close to the Gare de Lyon which was great both for a dinner at Le Train Bleu and an early morning departure the next day. The staff were very helpful but the room decor was a little flat. There is a pool that looked nice but I didn't use it. Overall very good value.

Good location for travel in train, or RER Being able to open doors from outside with badge is missing. Now, we have to ring, and wait, each time we go out for a smoke. Restaurant is good, but a bit pricey

Experience obviously dominated and impacted by COVID-19 measures. Otherwise the experience would have been rated with 10.

An excellent choice

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

Friendly athmosphere during building works

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

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

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 !

Good location.

Brian M Couples - 05/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

Mixed feelings about this hotel as we had to move room due to a couple of issues. The hotel is in a good location and the room was clean and comfortable but the matter of plastic glasses & paper cups for the mini bar & coffee machine does not lend itself to this Accor brand. Presumably this is being done on cutting hotel costs and increasing margins but by doing so does not sit well with environmental concerns.

Dear Brian, Thank you for sharing your feedback about Novotel Paris Gare de Lyon. I am so sorry you had to face the issues you've mentioned. I am also glad to see you've been taken care efficiently by the staff, so everuthing ended fine. I totally understand your concern about the environmental point with the plastic glasses and paper cups. Even if we separate carefully waste before they get properly recycled, I am currently working on the subject. Please know that we would love to welcome you back, Have a good day,

Great hotel close to train station

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

meggsy77 Family - 26/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

We booked 2 rooms here as we were arriving late by train. The hotel is adjacent to the station. The rooms were impeccably clean, roomy and bathroom had all the amenities we needed for our stay. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. Check in was quick; staff very friendly.

Dear meggsy77, Thank you for sharing your mind about Novotel Paris Gare de Lyon. I'm glad you had such a wonderful stay with us! I am looking forward to see you back soon!

Ideal location for the train station but bar staff rude

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Crowey_12 Couples - 01/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Stayed here overnight as had an early train to Montpellier next day. Very busy hotel but room was bigger than expected and quiet. Check in and out was ok, breakfast very good but service in the bar was poor, barman quite rude. Service in other areas of the hotel was good, just the bar that was woeful. Would I stay here again? not sure, would probably depend on what else was available in the area and pricing.

Dear Crowey_12, Thank you for sharing your feedback about Novotel Paris Gare de Lyon. I'm glad you enjoyed your time in Paris. Please accept my apologies, we weren't up to your expectations. I reported the situation to the bar manager. Please know that we'd love to welcome you back and prove you we can do better. Have a good day,

Good place to stay in Paris

Ranjith78 Family - 13/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

Very good location, neatly maintained property.. Close to metro, shops & restaurants. Polite staff & very helpful. Breakfast had good varieties. In case if you want to travel Paris by metro i would recommend this property.

Dear Ranjith78, Thank you so much for recommending Novotel Paris Gare de Lyon. We are so proud of your feedback, my teams thank you! Wishing you a safe journey back, See you soon!

Good business hotel

12345HBY Business - 12/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

Had a very brief stay in this hotel due to a cancelled flight, it was efficient, clean and comfortable as you would expect from the Accor group. In addition the hotel was in a great location next to gare de Lyon and metro so very handy for me. I generally find all Accor hotels of a good standard and this was no exception.

Dear 12345HBY, Thank you for sharing your mind about Novotel Paris Gare de Lyon. I'm so glad you had such a pleasant stay! We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent that we did well. I wish you a beautiful day,
