I am sorry to say it but it was not the treatment I have expected form Mercure... Easter evening. Waiting for a waiter in a hotel restaurant for 15 minutes... When she finally appeared at my table there was not even

I like staying here, very nice clean hotel, staff was friendly,very big apartments, but such are big bonus it’s king sized bed,! O my god I can talk about this bed all day long! I have big problem with my spine, i travel are lot, but just here so since long time i find such great bed and was sleep like are baby!

Typical of the Mercure chain. Vast bedroom, quiet. Seemed to lack staff on reception at peak hours and have too many at quieter periods. The room was far too hot on arrival but this was quickly remedied.

Was in this Hotel for 2 nights. Very nice - rooms are great - lots of light - good bed. Quiet and very central. Staff is cool - Keys are not a nice card system so 4 times in 2 days had to make a new one A big BUT is the bar . Jesus!! 4.50€ for a Coke Zero!!!! Really ? Do we need to take the drinks to that situation? So beside the Hotel there is a U supermarket - go there and buy your cold beer and Coke Zero for 1.25€ Another but is that they take 50€ per day on your credit card as a guarantee. Of course with the drinks on that level , males sense , for them!

Stayed here for a night recently in a large king size bed room. Bed was very comfortable and the room offered everything necessary for a comfortable stay. My only complaint is that the bathroom could use some better lighting but all in all, it was a pleasant stay.

10-15 minutes walk from the center this looks like a business hotel with nice lobby and good restaurant. It is not the super hotel but for its price it’s very good. Rooms are clean and have decent space, some of them look at the radisson blue hotel tower in Part Dieu and its location is between the train station and the city, more close to the city. If you don’t have luggage the train station is on walking distance (15 minutes walk) but with luggage probably you need a taxi which costs around 15 euros or even bit less. breakfast is nice with the expected options for this kind of hotel and the dinner the same, very good Overall for its price and if you look for a business hotel I would definitely recommend it. A tip: when I first got a room in the first floor the view was really bad looking at the entrance of the hotel on the road,but when I asked for a higher floor room, I got one on the fifth and although by any means great,it was decent

Nice hotel in a good position in relation to the main railway station and the attractions/old town. Good breakfast selection. Its good that there are tea/coffee making facilities in the room however, the maid was a bit mean with regards non replenishing the tea bags and milk. Also were swamped with body lotion but no shampoo so, more attention to detail from the maid. Overall we enjoyed our 4 night stay in Lyon at this hotel.

Nice hotel Friendly service But hard to find parking nearby. We tried to unload luggage near the hotel but unable to do so as it was busy. We ended up parking 300m away 1km to city centre We didn’t take food from here. As we love to experience french food on street

A good location for us as it is very close (5-minute walk) to the Prefecture. Check-in was easy, and we used the valet parking service for our car at Eur 23 per night. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable, and we had a good night's sleep. We had a surprisingly nice (and very convenient) dinner meal at the hotel's in-house restaurant, Le Garage Restaurant. Breakfast was also nice with a reasonably good choice. Free wi-fi worked well. Staff were friendly Overall, very good for our needs.

I liked this hotel very much , and really recommend it to Lyon's visitors . The room was superb , very comfortable , spacious , cozy decoration and lighting . Common hotel areas are very neat and very well kept regarding cleanness and maintenance. The breakfast food was excellent and delicious with lots of varieties . The only issue I want to know is the reason why the taxi rate from this hotel to Lyon's airport was much higher (Almost 79 Euros) , compared to the taxi rate I paid from Lyon's airport to this hotel (Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette) only 55 Euros ??? A gentleman at this hotel reception called Mr. Thomas booked me this taxi reservation to Lyon's airport (Yesterday November 18th, 2017) , and he remarked us that it was very difficult to make a taxi reservation for sunday morning itself (November 19th, 2017).
