Fabulous 8.6 From 179 reviews

Very good 8.0
Good value and easy transport links to the door
With a Metro right outside the front door it's great for getting into town. It's a little too far to walk though so you won't be as likely to use the hotel as a base - more as a place to sleep. The restaurant area looks more like a hostel canteen so I ate across the road at a traditional French cafe which was brilliant. There are a number of shops and restaurants around and lots of transport links. I wouldn't hesitate to go back here - the staff were friendly and the room was clean (though very small). I was on my own though, so I was fine with a smaller room - it was just a bed for the night. The bed was firm and comfortable, the shower was good and lots of hot water. The wifi was very good even though I was on the top floor. I rated the hotel at the top end but without raving about it. That's not a criticism, it's not setting out to be the Ritz, but what it does do it does well.

Poor 2.0
Worst hotel ever
I travel a lot for work. This hotel is the worst I have ever had the unfortunate experience of staying in. We booked because we had a late flight in and a 7:30 meetup for a tour. Hotel de Liin was right across the street. Reviews were good. What were these people thinking. There is another hotel de lion. I believe there is some mixup. First, staff were unwelcoming and could not answer one question. If you said room was hot. They said it was hot outside. If you said wi fi drops every second, they said I dunno maybe all your phones. Room was around 95 degrees. Linen was so scratchy, felt like Brillo pad. Last nite there, walked into hotel at nite and man at front desk yelled at us. No hi or welcome, just "why didn't you leave key at front desk. I lock door st might. You should be locked out!" I don't think I need to say anymore about the stay at this hotel...

Convenient and clean hotel
Excellent hotel for, at least, business trips! Small but very clean modern room, very helpful stuff, nice french-style breakfast. I liked it a lot! I will definitely stay again.

Hotel du Lion
I stayed at the Hotel du Lion for six nights in September 2019 and found it to be of incomparable convenience and value. I booked the hotel online some months in advance, and in so doing, was able to secure a rate of less than $100 per night - unheard of in Paris. The room would be considered spartan by American standards, but had all of the conveniences I needed. Besides, I didn’t come to Paris to sit in a hotel room. The location was terrific with the Metro and RER being steps from the hotel entrance. The view I had looked onto an intersection and that alone provided hours of entertainment. And yet, despite being a second floor room on a busy street, it was surprisingly quiet. The management even contacted me prior to my stay to advise me of pre-booking popular attractions and to ask if there was anything I needed to make my stay more enjoyable. I had only two minor complaints. One was that there was no bracket for holding the water wand for the shower and the other was that the WiFi had occasional problems. The breakfast could have also included some meat slices. Otherwise, a perfect place to stay for a budget minded traveler. Highly recommended!

Great little find.
Great location steps from metro #4 and #6 lines as well as the RER to to the airports. Couldn’t beat the location for quick access into the heart of town. Great neighborhood with restaurants, Catacombs and WWII museum across the street. Very happy with our stay.
