A large hotel geared towards business travelers
The Pullman Paris Bercy is a large chain hotel geared towards business travelers. The lobby is a large, bright space featuring contemporary decor with a few pops of color, gleaming floors, several sitting areas -- including one outdoors where guests can enjoy drinks from the lobby bar -- and floor-to-ceiling windows that let in tons of light. This decor, and the overall business-y vibe, extend to the rest of the hotel, which is a popular pick for corporate meetings.
In Bercy, near shops, restaurants, and the metro
The hotel is located on a quiet street in the Bercy district, a gentrified former warehouse neighborhood. There are no attractions within walking distance, but Bercy Village -- home to dozens of restaurants, bars, movie theaters, and shops -- is right next door. The M14 metro line, offering quick, easy access to most major sights in Paris, is just two blocks away. The Gare du Lyon is a six-minute drive away, and Charles de Gaulle airport can be reached in about 45 minutes by car.
Spacious and bright, with upscale amenities and free Wi-Fi
The hotel’s 396 rooms all feature similar contemporary decor, with gray walls, a couple of green touches in pillows and chaise lounges, large white back-lit headboards, and blonde wood furniture. Superior Rooms (the standard room type here) have simpler wood headboards and fewer pops of color, but are equally stylish. Beds have crisp white linens and at least four pillows. Flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, free bottled water, and Roger Gallet toiletries are standard amenities. All but Superior Rooms also have iPod docks, Nespresso coffeemakers, and stocked minibars (Superiors have an empty mini-fridge and an electric kettle instead). All bathrooms have tubs with rain shower heads. There are a number of accessible and connecting rooms, and cribs and cots are available upon request.
Meeting rooms, a fitness center, and a solid -- but pricey -- restaurant
The hotel offers a wide array of amenities, including a solid if pricey French restaurant with outdoor seating; a fitness center complete with a sauna and massage services; a full business center; and 20 fully equipped meeting rooms. Le Point Bar, located off the lobby, is popular among business travelers for after-work drinks and nightcaps. The property also offers free Wi-Fi throughout, valet and self-parking, concierge services, and daily turndown.
The Pullman Paris Bercy is a large upscale hotel located in Bercy, a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of central Paris, but offering easy access to restaurants, shops, and bars. With 20 fully equipped meeting rooms, a fitness center, and a bar for after-work drinks, this property is clearly geared towards business travelers. But its spacious, contemporary rooms with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, Nespresso machines, and floor-to-ceiling windows; quick, easy access via metro to major Paris attractions; and solid restaurant make it a good pick for tourists as well.
