This is a quirky, interesting hotel with amazing staff who welcome each customer to breakfast show you where all the sites are and then went out of their way to accomodate my wife’s dietary needs.Olivier was a wonderful warm host who made our stay memorable. The rooms were very small and the location very busy traffic wise but the Basilica and the gardens and zoo were brilliant and fascinating. Eating opportunities abound and ‘island’ location between the two rivers interesting.

Over all brilliant experience, quirky, clean and in a great location! Great service, a lot of recommendations in what to see in Lyon (very helpful). Olivier and the team were great hosts... 100% recommended, wouldn’t fault a thing! :) Martina & Daniel

The hotel is decorated brightly and cheerfully, and the staff could not have been more helpful. Pro: Helpful staff went over all the "tourist" sites with us, and made sure we knew how to get to them. The train station is nearby, and so are the sites we wanted to visit. The river is also very close by, so it was lovely to walk along it in the evening. The air conditioner worked properly (not always true elsewhere). The room we reserved was very clean, if a little tight for the three of us. There was a larger triple room available, and the manager instantly moved us into it at the original price for the smaller one. We were impressed, and very happy.

A very pleasant hotel, near main sights, great staff. We would stay there again. The room is small, but has good air conditioning. A cold breakfast is available for a charge, as well as parking if you call ahead.

Centrally located, English spoken, friendly, secure parking next door, very very small rooms, excellent for a short stay, but not for longer business trips when you need a desk/light to work in the evening. I slept well, shower was fine, breakfast had tasty cheese and different juices, much better than in other French hotels, not the mainstream accomodation

Was on work in Lyon for 3 days and chose this hotel from a list of hotels suggested by our associates. Looks simple from the outside until you enter into the lobby. An old world charm with a blue carpeted wooden staircase and hanging light globes and a comfortable cafe. The rooms are clean, functional and comfortable. Two steps away from the river, a few steps away from the railway station and metro and a few minutes away from all the attractions, shopping areas and restaurants, you really have it all. The owners and staff are courteous, charming and helpful. This is where to stay on a quick visit to the city.

The hotel is in a good location for exploring Lyon. The staff were so helpful it made our stay. They gave us good recommendations for restaurants, as there are so many to choose from. The rooms are 'smallish ' but not unusual for a city hotel although a bit dark. Bathroom very nice and bright, recently refurbished, great shower. Good breakfast. There is parking but it's tricky to access and you have to cross the tram lines and into very tight garage, so not for the faint hearted or 4x4's.

The location is great, very close to the train station and easy walking distance to the rest of the city. The staff was amazing, very welcoming and helpful. We are a family of 4, used three beds, and it was perfect for us. Also great little bakeries and cafes close by for early breakfast.

A Hotel is only as good as it's staff and the personnel here are "top drawer". From the moment we walked through the door, tired and hot, we were shown to comfortable chairs for the check in and given cool drinks. We felt cosseted and were made to feel "genuinely" welcome. Olivier and Luisa were very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The Hotel?...absolutely perfect for our needs....great location, air conditioning and a comfy bed. Job done.

I had a very good time and appreciated the help from the staff with several questions. The breakfast was tasty and the breakfast room was nicely decorated. Great location. The Room was quite small but the bed was comfortable. The shower head was hard to manage in Room 2. Merci a Olivier et son équipe. :-)
