It offered wifi conection. The front office person was reluctant in giving me the password. I had acces for only 30 min.; in the reception area, none in the room. Next 2 days, none what so ever. Carpet was dirty. No drawers to place items. Early morning staff had no knowledge of metro/rer system. Sent me the wrong route to gare nord.

Basic budget hotel with small rooms and all that I needed for a one night stay. Nice friendly reception staff. Its main attraction was that it was two minutes walk from Gare de Lyon, where I needed to catch an early train to Nice the next morning. For me therefore it was ideal.

What they don't tell you is that when you get on the lift and get to your floor there is no landing, just steps, so my advice is be careful on opening the lift door or you will fall down the steps. it is not for the handicapped person at all. as when you get out of the left, you still have to climb down stairs to get to your room.... We needed directions and the receptionist left the area and left the maid in charge who knew absolutely nothing and couldn't speak English...

Excellent location and three bed room size not bad for Paris. Clean but some noise from neighbouring rooms. Double glazing very effective. Bang next to Gare du Lyon metro station. Would stay there again for a couple of nights, probably not ideal for a longer stay.

The Hotel Helvetia is tucked in between two outstanding restauraunts and just a two minute walk from the bus station and parking garage, with a metro stop just out the front door. It was a perfect place to sleep and clean-up after exploring all Paris has to offer.

The hotel does not have airconditioning. The elevator frequently breaksdown. The staffs are not friendly. Very hot and very noisy. Paris hit 35 degrees Celsius and it was really very very hot in the room and noisy.

The person at the desk was unfriendly, and in the morning, when we had to descend from the 5th floor with heavy suitcases, he simply informed us that the lift was not working. No attempt was made to help two pensioners even down the last few, very narrow and steep, stairs.
