Best Western Hotel Saint Antoine3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
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.
We only stayed one night in Lyon, so I was happy to stay somewhere that was convenient for sightseeing. It's about a five to ten minute walk to Bellecour and Cordeliers metro stations. The lobby is very small, so it's a little chaotic when there's a large group of people checking in. It gets a little loud at night because it's close to a street with many bars. (It's perfect for those who want to spend a night out drinking as it's very quick to get back to the hotel.) Our room looked clean enough elsewhere, but then there were little hairs left on the bathroom counter.
This nice little hotel is placed just in the middle of the city center. The Saone riverbank is next door, the street with all the restaurants are just around the corner and the shopping streets also very close. I had a nice little room with a modern interior including coffee and tea facilities. Breakfast was simple but good. The only negative thing was some noise form the street Friday night, but it could have been much worse. The internet worked well.
This hotel was quite a distance from the city center and finding it was frustrating . The receptionist however was most accommodating and facilitated our check in and assisted in settling us for the night. Room was comfortable and bathroom clean. The parking in the back was a blessing since street parking is almost impossible. A good choice for a one night stop over.
Hotel with excellent location and with recently rebuild rooms and bathrooms. Some rooms are very small with a difficult circulation around the bed. Small bathrooms. In some cases with toilets space only for kids or small people. Friendly staff, very good breakfast and excellent location near most of the key touristic zones: Shopping, restaurants and old town (5 m walk across the river)
OK, so the room was big enough to sleep in, but that's it. I've had enough of these French chain hotels with their tiny rooms and wish I'd spent a little more to get something more comfortable. However, I would have rated this average (because I got what I payed for) if it wasn't for the fact that the en-suite bathroom stank of sewage and that's in February. Don't bother! Good location though.
