I recently stayed at the Pullman Paris Centre Bercy Hotel as part of a weekend trip to Paris. Read my review to find out whether you should book a stay or not during your next trip to Paris.
Pullman Paris Centre Bercy – A Quality Business Hotel
The Pullman Paris Centre Bercy Hotel is located in the 12th arrondissement. The hotel is located within walking distance of the Bercy Arena, the Bercy Village outdoor shopping centre and the Cinematheque Francaise. The Pullman Paris Centre Bercy is mainly aimed at business travellers and corporate types likely to attend conferences at one of the nearby conference centres. I spotted a number of cabin crew from Lufthansa making a stopover for the night at the hotel.
I visited the hotel with my partner, my sister, brother-in-law and 4-year old niece. The rooms are equipped with a double bed and a sofa-bed. The bathrooms feature a bathtub and rain shower, as well as Pullman branded toiletries. My only gripe with the hotel was that the shampoo bottle lids were screwed on abnormally tight compared with the other toiletries provided. Both my sister and I managed to cut our fingers on the lid.
You are provided with two free bottles of water in the in-room refrigerator, as well as facilities for making tea and coffee. The rooms also feature a wardrobe and safe. What I liked about this part of the room is that these are in a separate corridor, where you can close the door to the bedroom. Overall, the room sizes at the Pullman Paris Centre Bercy are much bigger than you would see in other Accor properties in the centre of Paris.
I found the beds to be very comfortable. I am someone who likes to sleep on a softer surface. If you like a firm mattress, you might want to ask the staff ahead of time to not put the mattress topper on your bed. This is essentially the same thickness as a winter duvet. You are provided with two types of pillows; one soft and one firm.
The room I stayed in was equipped with a Philips Ambilight TV with access to most of the French channels. You can also rent films on demand, however, we spent most of our time outside of the hotel. It is Paris after all.
Breakfast is free for children and €26 per adult. We did not have breakfast in the hotel, so I cannot rate this part of the hotel.
Getting to the hotel is easy from all the major train stations. The Cour Saint-Émilion Metro station is less than a 5-minute walk through the outdoor Bercy Village shopping centre, which is home to a number of restaurants with outdoor seating and the usual French chain stores. Disneyland Paris is also easy to reach, you simply take the Metro one stop and change for the RER A direct to Marne-La-Vallée Chessy, where the train stops right outside the gate to the parks.
The hotel is located close to the Seine and the Parc de Bercy. The Parc de Bercy has some beautiful landscaped gardens and an open grass area in front of the Cinematheque Francaise. I would recommend talking a stroll through the park if you were to stay at the hotel. There's plenty of cafés and restaurants lining the streets surrounding the park where you can eat outside if the weather is nice.
I paid €170 per night for a weekend stay in a Superior Room. This was offset slightly by the 10.5% cashback offered by TopCashback on bookings made on the Accor website. Considering this was the weekend before Bastille Day, I think this was a fair price to pay.
