Stayed here for 4 nights and we flew in from Madrid. Took a cab instead of the train as we had 3 heavy luggages! Taxi fare was €67 as we got stuck in heavy traffic. The Gare de Lyon train station is just down the street from the hotel and its so convenient to move around with it. But being first timer at the station, we were so confused with the lines and didn't know where to take the train as the station was huge! There is also another station called Gare de Australitz which is just behind the hotel and have to cross a bridge to get there.
The hotel room is great! We had the room with balcony and was facing the street. Not too noisy at night. What I love about Holiday Inns are the pillows...they have soft or firm pillows upon your request. We did have slight problem getting though the receptionist via our room phone through out our stay, it was always on engage tone! One night, our TV was not working and my hubby had to call housekeeping and got them to get the reception to call us back.
We didn't try the buffet breakfast and ate at the cafe nearby the station. The cafes have breakfast set menu as low as €5. On our last night, we decided to try La'Europian restaurant just beside the train station and it was worth it. Dinner set menu for €33 was affordable as it came with wine,coffee,starter,main & dessert!
Overall, the hotel has good service, staff was attentive to your request and friendly too. Room has the warm feeling and clean. And the location is good for people who depend on public transport in Paris. Oh yes, there is also a Carrefour nearby.
