Mercure Lyon Centre Beaux Arts

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location of this hotel was really good - 5mkns across the bridge to Vieux Lyon and 20m walk to croix roux. Lots of nice cafes and bouchons around and beautiful views of the place design Jacobins from rooms on the 5th floor. The room was a nice size however the toilet and bath were separate with no wash basin in the toilet. It will be nice to be able to wash hands in the same toilet! We had a very pleasant stay and would definitely recommend this hotel for convenience and location. If you are arriving by plane, the hotel can easily be reached via the Rhine express to part dieu station and then a short taxi ride or bus to the hotel.

Hotel is considered one of the better ones in Lyon center. Room size is adequate. Location is centralised but sound proofing is not great. Car noises could be heard in the room. Shower and wc area are separated by a wall, no tap in wc which is something not so pleasant nor hygienic I find. Shower space a bit small. It is an ok hotel but a bit overpriced and overrated I find.

Charming hotel, friendly and helpful staff, a place where you feel at home! I often stay here for business purposes but this is also perfect when you are in a city trip. Plenty of good quality restaurants are just around the corner and very close to vieux-Lyon. A real gem! Stefan

We arrived at 4 AM at the hotel, there was someone waiting for us at the reception. We got our key immediatly, friendly man who gave us an explanation of what we could visit in Lyon and where to go. We got the privilege room with view at the fountain. Wonderfull room, good bed, topservice and the breakfast is awesome. I strongly recommand the coconut cream made by Eliane :) topservice!

Great location for exploring the city. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgable and helped guide us as we explored Lyon. Their restaurant recommendations were perfect and descriptions of the different neighborhoods were spot on and very helpful. Room was large and comfortable with large walk-in shower with rain showerhead. Breakfast was good and service excellent.

Great location, not far from the main square, both the rivers and restaurant street. The staff were very helpful. Our room was a little noisy at times. The room was very well equipt with kettle and free water. We are looking to return to Lyon in the summer as it is such a great city with amazing food.

This is a lovely hotel. Quiet. Near all the places you want To be. The river, the shops,the restaurants and bars. Brilliant location. Lovely room. Very clean. Flat screen tv. Tea and coffee making facilities. Complimentary water. Separate toilet and bathroom. Friendly staff. Perfect place to stay. Everything is within walking distance.

The position of this hotel could not be better, every thing was close at hand - the river, restaurants and plenty of shops.Our room was quiet, although no view. Separate toilet, excellent shower, good beds and a kettle to make tea or coffee.Two English language news programs on TV, although the one most suited to us did not work well - but the hotel were going to look into the problem. Breakfast was at an extra cost, and as we don't eat cooked breakfast - could be considered a little expensive..Pick the right time - it could be busy But it was the staff on reception I must praise - they were very pleasant & helpful & went to great lengths to find what you were looking for, for example for us a special restaurant Enjoy

Excellent location, directly in the center so perfect for visiting the city and just 5 minutes away from restaurants and bars. The hotel is totally renovated, room are big, clean and quite and the staff was amazing! We really felt at home!

Stayed 4 nights at this centrally located hotel near old town area of Lyon. Room spacious by European standards. Breakfast available for large fee. We did not try the breakfast instead opting to try neighboring restaurants and markets. Located Very close to Place Bellecour square. A few minutes walk across Saone River to Vieux Lyon (old town). Close to the Saint Antoine daily outdoor market. Located in the shopping district of Lyon. Refrigerator and coffee in the room. Free bottle water daily. TV non functioning after first day. Notified desk, but never fixed. Hotel staff all very friendly and helpful. Arrived early to hotel and held our luggage until checkin. Room quiet when windows closed blocking city noise.
