A surprisingly good hotel
My usual hotel near Denfert-Rochereau was booked up, so I went with Hotel du Lion, and it turned out to be a good move. Comfortable room with nice air circulation, great location (for RER B to CDG esp) with 2 Metro lines just 5 steps to the hotel entrance. Only thing -- you do need to climb a narrow set of stairs to get to the hotel lobby (there's an internal lift/elevator once you get there), so be warned if you have luggage or have mobility concerns. Other thing -- the cleaning is a bit shoddy, as I found a used towel with wine stains and hair on it... But overall a good place for that part of Paris, so I'd recommend it.

Great hotel in great location
The hotel is very well located, it is clean and modern. The personnel are fantastic. As good as you can get in Paris. The only problem is that the walls are thin, so it can be very noisy sometimes. When the cleaning service starts you have to wake you like it or not.

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.

Exceptional 10,0
The hotel is tiny, simple and very clean. I enjoyed my stay specifically as it was nice, clean, friendly staff and close to metro and RER. Jasmine at the reception was so great, professionall and excellent service orientation, with any inquiry I had she helped.
