Hotel Paris

I love the CitizenM Gare du Lyon Hotel. It’s great value for the money and I loved the check-in/out experience that is not dependent on hotel personnel. Breakfast was very nice. Location of the hotel is very central. This hotel is absolutely briljant and everything in the room controlled by technology. The absolute best bed I have ever slept in.
