Very nice hotel - right in the neighborhood. Extremely convenient to metro, a small food market, and restaurants. Gwen at the front desk was phenomenal - she spoke great English, made sure our breakfast was to our liking, and answered all questions we needed to make Vincennes a great stay for us !

This is my second review for this hotel and again, I have nothing but positive comments to make. The location in Vincennes is very quiet, and is in a residential sort of neighborhood. The rooms are smartly made up and are average in size. Customer service is exceptional, and this is probably because it is a family operated hotel and...

Hotel DonJon Vincennes is a pleasant and comfortable hotel, around 10 minutes by taxi from Gare du Lyon, Paris. Located in a quiet residential area, we enjoyed the calm neighborhood which is within a few minutes walk to the nearest Metro (Berault) offering easy access to the sights of the city.
