|The view from my hotel room|
Sunday, 28 November 2010
The next part of the journey was to the Gare de Lyon. I chose about 6 different machines to purchase my ticket from, but was able to do it in the end. The Metro train was a two storey train and quite busy. I had to stand but it was only a few stops. The hotel was just three streets away from the station. Mind you, that depends on which exit you take. The station is enormous and has about 15 different exits. I stayed at the Hotel Lyon, Bastille. It is a three star hotel and cost £92. I would stay there again. It was nice and central and very clean. It also had free wi-fi.
