Best Western Hotel Saint Antoine

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Centrally located for restaurants, old Lyon and Sightings. Public parking garage very near by which is a must in Lyon where traffic is tormented inevitably way thinkable. Hotel is in an old classic building and the most important renovation has been done, it‘s sound proofing which is sufficient. For the price there is no competition in that location. To find the hotel entrance look for the sign „Diplomatico“ on the promenade Quai Sr Antoine.

This city center hotel was extremely close to the pedestrian bridge that leads to the Old Town. It is literally surrounded by restaurants and bars, but tucked away enough to be considered a quiet location. Our room was perfect for us; compact, but good use of space. The linens were crisp, the bathroom was spotless, the shower had great water pressure. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

The location is ideal for a vacationer. Steps from the pedestrian bridge leading to the old town. A great variety of dining options just steps away; everything from fast food to fine dining. The hotel was exceptionally clean. The room was a decent size, well furnished and spotless. The front desk staff was very helpful and available 24 hrs a day. My room faced a light shaft, rather than overlooking a street, and this provided a very quiet night even with the windows wide open. A real good option in Lyon!

We were assigned to a room with a window that opened to the interior. We could not keep the window open due to an overwhelming stench of garbage, and the room had no air conditioning — we were somewhat deceptively informed that the hotel had turned off the AC because guest were complaining it was too cold. After 1 miserable night, we asked for a room facing exterior so at least we could open the window. Our request was granted and — guess what — the new room had an AC unit! The new/improved room made a world of a difference. The first room was barely habitable and yet we were also told we’d be on the hook for all 3 nights if we chose to depart early rather than suffer in that dungeon of a room unless they could find a new dupe to rent it. Good grief. So it all ended well, but beware of your room assignment.

Myself and my partner stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in total. When we first checked i we were allocated a room on the top floor which we both found to be too small and too dark for our liking. After discussing this with the lady at the front desk she changed our room for a slightly larger room with much more light and a much bigger window! She was more than happy to do this for us and we both immediately felt comfortable and happy with the hotel. In fact we found all of the staff were very friendly and more than happy to go out of their way to help you. If you are going to Lyon to make the most of the city the location of the hotel couldn't be better. Along the same street is an awesome little cafe, boulangerie (great for picking up lunch!), grocery store and many small unique shops. It is also just around the corner from a street packed with bars and restaurants, which if you are in Lyon to enjoy is perfect! On our first night walking back to the hotel we were slightly worried as the area was busy and loud, but there was no need to worry, as soon as we got into the hotel all of the noise was blocked out and in all of our 6 nights we did not have 1 night of disturbed sleep. The hotel was perfect for our stay in comfort and location and we would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy the vibrant and exciting city of Lyon during the day and night!

I found the BW St Antoine to be be extremely well situated to enjoy Lyon's lively restaurant and bar scene and the easy access to the foot bridge over the Saone River made it very convenient to visit the old town or take the funicular to see the cathedral at Fourvière or the Gallo-Roman ruins and museum. The hotel is very convenient to shopping and to Place Bellecour to join any tours.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, travelling alone and I had the best experience in Lyon because of this comfy hotel. It is just walking distance to the old town and St. Pierre Cathedral, less than 5 minutes walk. You can take the funicular to Notre Dame and enjoy the scenic view from the top of the hill. The hotel is surrounded by shops and restaurants, just next door is a small grocery store. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, thank you for accommodating me on early check in after such a tiring trip. I would like to mention the night receptionist for helping me book and showed me the room on the night before I check in, I was so desperate to find a good place to stay and Best Western was indeed a heaven sent! The room I booked was small and nice- more than enough for one person. I tried the breakfast once and it was nice. Though I suggest they could maybe add 1 Asian dish like noodle or fried rice. Thank you! I will come back soon!

An honest hotel with a very accomodating and friendly staff. The room (405) given to us had a smell of cigarette, after informing the reception we were promptly changed to room 105. Although it did have a smell it wasn't as bad as the previous one. The room was on the small side but this is compensated by the location, close to all famous Lyon sites and great restaurants. For advice of where to eat well at a reasonable price the staff suggested Le Layon, we weren't disappointed. Recommended!!

This hotel is situated near old town (Vieux Lyon), restaurants, shops are waiting for you from front door. Local transportation is also close, meaning couple of buslines. Metro is not close, so from airport, which has transportation to Lyon Part-Dieu railway station, you need to take taxi to arrive to hotel unless it doesn't bather you do have some more time in metro.. It's 15 EUR, 2 persons with luggage by taxi to hotel. Everything else is in walking distance. Using metro, tram, bus is easy. River cruise, old town, shopping, restaurants very close.

We booked through a third party website which claimed there was parking on the premises. When we arrived and inquired about the parking, the woman at the front desk informed us that it was, in fact, just regular city parking. Room was small but clean. Lots of choices for breakfast.
