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
We stayed for just one night, but had a great stay. The hotel was conveniently located near the metro in a lovely neighborhood. There was a Monoprix store right across the street, which was super convenient. Our room looked brand new and was very modern and clean.
I had a small cozy modern bright room. From my window I had an exciting view over Paris roofs.
The hotel is located next to Dugommier metro station at the corner of Rue de Charenton and Blvd de Bercy. More a popular than a touristy area. It has a design decor in grey and red colors and light wood.
Golden Tulip is a good address.
Me and My Boyfriend visited this hotel a week ago (April 6th-8th), it was an amazing gift that I got from my boyfriend as a Christmas present to go to Paris. At the hotel, the staff are very friendly and are happy to help you find all the landmarks and attractions in Paris by giving us a map, which was extremely helpful and thank you so much for making our stay so welcoming! The room is gorgeous, although most reviews complain how small it was, it was enough for us to enjoy our stay. Couldn’t recommend this hotel enough. We will be coming back again next year! ☺️🎉
I discovered this hotel because I had a business meeting nearby. While I only spent two nights I found it very nice and welcoming. Renovated building, nice although not very large room, good and clean bathroom and shower. The staff was very welcoming and concerned. Very good continental breakfast. The neighborhood and the hotel are very quiet.
Lovely hotel just next to the metro station and quite close to the most popular amenities. Room was on the 8th floor, small but cozy, bed extremely comfortable. Great place for a few day's visit. Highly recommend
