Golden Tulip Paris Gare de Lyon Le 209
What We Love
- A stylish Paris hotel near the Bois de Vincennes and Gare de Lyon, with breakfastThe off-the-beaten-track Paris location, in the heart of the 12th arrondissement
- Tucking into delicious continental-style breakfasts piled high with French goodies
- Staying in a beautiful guest room with modish décor and statement-making artworks
What To Know
- The Dugommier metro station is just down the block and can zip you to the Eiffel Tower and Champs Elysees within a half-hour
- Rooms are small but modern
- The neighborhood is quiet—nighttime street noise isn't an issue
There’s no shortage of chic to be found at this rather stylish-but-intimate boutique property, located just minutes from the iconic neoclassical facade and 67-metre-high clock tower of Paris’ famous railway station, the Gare de Lyon. Set in Bercy, in the heart of the lesser-known and primarily residential 12th arrondissement, on the right bank of the River Seine, the setting is perfect for those seeking out a very different and far less clichéd side to the French capital.
Following top-to-toe renovations in 2015, all of the hotel’s high-design guest rooms are arguably on-trend. Expect minimal décor with lashings of wooden fixtures, statement-making artworks, and a neutral palette of greys and whites with splashes of bright red.
After refuelling on sweet and savoury French goodies in the funky-looking breakfast room, spend your time getting to grips with this fascinating (and often crowd-free) part of the city. Most worthy of your attention is the Marché d’Aligre (a lively outdoor market known for its wonderful fresh produce), the landscaped Parc de Bercy for its pretty ponds, fountains and walkways, and the huge Bois de Vincennes park for its zoo, botanical garden, kids’ farm, and beautiful Buddhist temple.
How to Get There
- Very Nice shower
-l’occitane soap and shampoo
-toilet separated from bathroom
-posibility to park the car in a nearby garage
-well located (access to metro and restaurants)
- Rooms are not sound proof, I could hear the people on the streets and in the rooms next to me (including when they flushed the toilet)
- very slow WiFi
- air conditioning did not work
-the breakfast buffet is located in a very small area, which makes it complicated for several people to get the food at the same time
We stopped one night ,staff were friendly,one small thing would have liked more choices of drinks in room, maybe chocolate and a bit more tea and milk, maybe an English thing ,breakfast was really nice ,continental taken and loads of choice
Stayed here for our Herbalife extravaganza this weekend, room was extremely clean, modern & full of everything you would need for a short stay. Friendly staff with good English, well stocked bar & delicious breakfast. Great location! Can't wait to return
Very clean and new.. however the room is so SMALL felt more like a cabin . a nice cabin
Staff.. met different one each day all very nice. Its not central at all like I was lead to believe it was however the metro is I min away so its easy to get into centre. Try and get B&B I would not pay 14Euros for the breakfast continental . The area seemed fine. I would not stay again as room was to small but if you get at a good price you wont be disappointed.
Had a lovely 2 night stay at this hotel. In a great location and next to the subway. The hotel staff are friendly and very informative, their English is also very good. The hotel has a small cafe attached which sells some lovely small dishes, furthermore there is a small bakery which is owned by 2 women and absolutely amazing
