Citadines Part-Dieu Lyon3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Citdaines is an aparthotel with a small kitchen and cooking amenities, toilet and bath area, plenty of space to store the luggage and clothes. They only clean the room once a week, unless you want to pay extra, but no issues on that, for a weekend I don't need changed towels or bedsheets anyway. Walking distance to the express train to the airport (10min), to a big shopping mal with big supermarket (5min), to the supermarket Franprix (1min), to the exquisite food hall Paul Bocuse (2min), to the tram to the center (2min) but also to the center, starting from the riverside of the Rhône (10min) and it's markets. Wifi was always working well, staff at the reception was friendly.
We were rather surprised when we got to our room,that it contained only a fold up bed!Not only was it rather uncomfortable, but creaked and groaned every time you moved. Everything elso was ok,and the staff were helpful.Only glad we had only booked for the one night.Location was ok also,one kilometer from the railway station, and close to a large shopping complex.
Pro: location and price. Located close to the subway and away from the crowds. The city centre is just one mile away and Lyon's gastronomic market "les halles de Paul Bocuse" is accross the street. Another close "attraction" is the street market at Place Guichard, which opens every Saturday and Tuesday. Rooms are decent and at a very competitive price. Place has a small but fairly equipped kitchenette. There's a small supermarket (Franprix) next door and other supemarkets nearby. Staff is very friendly and courteous. Cons: rooms are small and very particular. For some reason, french designers like to place toilet seats otside the washroom. In my case this is next to the kitchen (in a separate room of course, by the door). Honestly this does not motivate me to cook and it's a hassle if you have needs in the middle of the night 🤣. Lobby closes at 10 pm so DO NOT lose your key, otherwise you will have a major issue. This place has no air conditioning. If the heat bothers you, stay away during hot summer days. You can borrow a portable one, but it's huge, you will take half the space in the room, and you will need to open your balcony to put the portable ac's exhaust (no window options).
This is more like a 1.5 star Aussie standard. A hotel room being called a serviced appartment but with no service. Not in a great location either. 20 min walk to river and other key areas and where we had to meet for join our tour.
We went last summer when it was hot outside - very disappointed to find no working air-con in our room. Desk staff were helpful, found us another room, but guess what? Still no working air-con! My wife was not impressed and not was I. Beware of budget booking through Expedia.
Perfect location near train station, metros, buses, trams etc. Easy access for airport. Lots of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Safe and quiet even though so central. Fantastic service and clean rooms made for a lovely stay. Also enjoyed having a dishwasher! Bring your own paper filters for making coffee as they are not provided! Also bear in mind that the sofa bed in the studio rooms DOES NOT fold out into a double bed but into two single beds with a gap between them!
We stayed at this hotel one night, we were 3 adults and a teenager, we booked an apartment with two floors, floor one had a couch that opens up to a bed, floor two was great, it had a regular bed. The water in the shower didn't go down well but overall it's pretty good hotel. Breakfast costs 10 euros each person, it has bread, jam, cheese, ham, coffee tea and cerals. The hotel is about 20 minutes walking to palce bellacour (city center) very beautiful, and about 15 minutes walking to the train station.
We stayed here mid September in a one bedroom suite. I was a bit worried reading other travellers reviews about the heat and there being no air conditioning. However, the temperature was near perfect during our stay and the hotel staff were quite accommodating and were able to give us a small fan when we asked. We were given a room on the main floor of the building. Walking down the hallway to the room it smelled a bit of smoke, but our room itself was completely fresh and no trace of smoke. The windows and blinds/shutters were an absolute mystery to us as we have never seen them before. With the shutters (metal) completely down, it was very dark in the room, I just assumed we would need to use the lights indoors to see all the time. However, once we figured out that you can draw the shutters by a lightswitch type near the door, and were able to have daylight and then figured out how to open the windows, it was great. No real instructions on how to operate these things but I guess they assume you are familiar with such, as we began to notice the same type of shutters on many buildings after that. The room was very spacious had very tall ceilings and large windows which swung open completely like a door. This was lovely but it would have been nicer had we been on a higher floor, as we were not comfortable leaving the windows open at night or when we left, which would have been nice to do and let the air flow through all the time. However, being on the main floor, if the windows are open, the sidewalk and a pedestrian street are right outside, which means people are walking right beside the windows and could easily hop in if they wanted. I had asked the reception about possibly changing rooms to get on a higher level due to the security concerns , but they could only do it 2 days later (we were there for 4 days) and after reevaluating we did not think it was worth it to pack up all our things and move it after 2 days and then again upon check out. But the staff were very helpful in trying to accommodate our requests and really did all they could do. We did discover the windows opened a second way where you can tilt them so open only at the top and sealed at the bottom, which was much more comfortable for us and typically how we left them. The bed and couch (which is a sofa bed) were very comfortable. Bathroom lovely. Safe in the room which was good for us. The apartment style was very nice for us as it allows you to bring food home to prepare instead of eating every meal out. It even had a washer/dryer. The hotel had breakfast, for a price, but it's not worth it. It's so much easier, cheaper, and better to grab something from the close radius around the hotel. The coffee and hot chocolate are complimentary though! There is a fantastic bakery just on the corner if you turn left as you exit the hotel (it's signage is all pink) and has everything you could want (pastries, cakes, breads, sandwiches), and there is also Paul Bocusse food hall (basically an indoor food market) right across the street from that bakery, where you can find everything you need to fix yourself any meal of the day. We went there every morning we were there. Plenty of other great food spots around, close to many bus stops and the metro. It was extremely convenient for us to make it to anywhere else in the city. It also seemed safe at nights which was important. The hotel is right across from a school and children's playground. Some other reviewers commented about the noise from the street and the playground, but we didn't notice it much, even with the windows open. The staff are friendly enough and most spoke english well, and if not, they did try to assist the best they could. Excellent amenities, and fabulous location. I would definitely stay here again!
If you need to stay short or long time in a place well localized and fell as at home, to cook, stay there, choose Citadines. no problem during 1 month I've stayed there. Internet worked well, cleaning too. I stayed in room 783 that is bigger (others are too but this is better if you need to say long time). I stayed with my wife and son and the unique concern is that the Toillete is in the grow floor and the room in 2nd (duplex), so pay a attention with the ledders, at night you can have problems....
My boyfriend and me meet every week-end in Lyon and we always book an apparthotel. This one was my favorite with a friendly welcome, a securised parking, big comfortable studio with good equipments... I would recommend this hotel but it is a little too expensive when no promotions.
