We stayed at this hotel over the long Easter weekend. The room was fairly large, and the sofa had been converted into a sofa bed for our daughter. The bathroom was small but functional and clean. Wifi generally worked well. Staff was friendly and serviceable. The hotel is centrally located and close to Perrache train station, ten minutes walk from Place Bellecour and just over 15 minutes walk from Vieux Lyon.... overall good value for money.
Great affordable hotel, clean, excellent and friendly service, well located and best of all, family friendly. We stayed at a family room with our two young children, very difficult to find this type of room (2 double beds) in most hotels regardless of your budget, and hotels are bit pricey here in Lyon. Luckily found a review mentioning the family room and glad took the advice, room is good size even for two very active kids aged 4 and 5, good heating system for these winter nights. Breakfast buffet is limited in options but good. There's a self-serve laundromat down the street and can pay for the machines with credit card (pin type), also there's a supermarket and lots and lots of little shops selling almost anything you could need and even more at a the nearby Victor Hugo Ave. (pedestrian type).
Room had no air conditioning, so had to leave windows open - which meant the mosquito's got a feast. Room was very small, but not an issue for me personally. Only had hot water once from the shower, happily the room temperature counter acted this. Lots of noise started around 6:15 am, but I was on UK time so it felt like 5:15. Wifi was ok for browsing. Whilst it wasn't the worst hotel I have stayed at, I would't stay again.
We stayed here for 3 nights while watching the European Rugby finals. We had room 33 and it was a good size with double bed and a sitting area with sofa. The room was clean as was the bathroom and the water hot. Wifi is available free in the room. The room did not have air con but this was not a problem for us as the weather was not hot. The lift is minute so could be a problem if several people were leaving at the same time with luggage. Breakfast was simple but boiled eggs were cooked to order. The rest was typical continental fare but the bread was good and croissants fresh. The coffee from the machine was excellent. The hotel is in a good position and a short walk from Bellecour Square and the old town. There are several restaurants in the same road as the hotel and hundreds in the old town. The metro is 10 minutes walk away. Reception staff all spoke excellent English and were friendly and helpful. A good 3 star hotel. When we stayed it was extremely good value.
Except for a small hiccup concerning my reservation (nothing serious), I found my stay at this hotel good value for money. All staff members were very friendly and spoke good English, providing a few tips for looking around the city (I think 2 nights are adequate to get a good enough feel for the place). The hotel provided me with a quiet room, as I requested in advance, consequently it was at the back with no view. Also, the room, although fair sized, was a little subdued in terms of light but these are very minor quibbles. Breakfast was simple, but a reasonably good choice and quantity and nothing to complain about (I particularly liked the authentic French ‘pain’ though). The hotel was conveniently located within an easy 10 minutes’ walk from the rail/tram station. There were plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. If I was visiting Lyon again I'd certainly consider this hotel.
The location of this hotel is near a train station and a short walk from the city centre and "square". It is housed in an old building with small lifts and typical retro place. Rooms are very clean and organised. However a little small, could be due to the structure of this building. Staff at reception is very nice and courteous and remembers me after just one night of stay! Recommend this place anytime!
I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I knew it was in a good location, the 2nd arrondisement in Lyon, at the heart of the citybut wasn't expecting too much. The bed was very comfortable and the room was nice. Not huge, but still nice and comfortable. The front desk staff was superb - friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The hotel doesn't have any parking facility, but the staff told me of a commuter lot right around the corner where I parked overnight for 4 Euros, rather than using the public parking facility at 20 Euros. Great tip! Plenty of restaurants nearby and well located to walk around the city of Lyon. I stayed on 2 November 2015 and paid less than 100 Euros for the room, a good value for a center city location in France. The breakfast was kind of meager so I just found a café nearby to eat. I would definitely stay here again.
Good location not far from the train station and walking distance from the place Carnot , subway , buses .... the room are old but clean , bath room is very small but recently renovated We were on the street side and got awaken from the student of the school on the front the most difficult was that we didn t have any A/C we were suffocating in the room and had to try to sleep with window open (street noise) when sleeping is an issue in a hotel .... well not very good
You need a map to find this hotel. It's situated at Gare de Perrache ( TGV train station). Look for the exit of the place of Carnot. This hotel allow us to explore every day life of French People. You have every kind of local store around hotel. Plus you can walk to tourist attraction. Ex le Vieux Lyon. We did our laundry in the laverie nearby. Check weather before you go, no airconitioner. It could be really warm in the summer in France.
Good location, clean room. A bit old on the inside but well kept. Bathroom door couldn't be closed. No air conditioning but we could use fans that the receptionist gave us. They were kind enough to have our bikes in the conference room for the night and the receptionists were very friendly, spoke good english.
