Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was large but with a worn carpet that had stains and discolorations on them. The corners of the rooms were dusty and had not been vacuumed in quite some time. The bed was too HARD. I couldn't sleep well. I did not eat the breakfast there as there are plenty of brasseries for half the price. The sink had a huge crack (I could stick my finger in it). Unfortunately the reception was not very helpful either and did not offer information that might be helpful to tourists. I had booked this hotel specifically for using their gym which was AGAIN under construction. I received no apology or any good customer service gesture. I stayed the following 2 nights in a hotel in Old Lyon for half the price and had none of the problems above. The high pricing and the stars are not justified for the quality of stay. I expect more of a Mercure.

The hotel room was not cheap, but it was lovely -- large, with a king bed and duvet, flat screen TV with lots of stations in most languages. It was very large, clean, with a nice bathroom with all amenities. The downsides were two: the website said checkin was noon so I left Avignon at 10:15. When I arrived close to 1pm, I was told it would be at least an hour. So I lunched in La Garage, the hotel's restaurant, which turned out to be wonderful. The other quibble is '10 minutes from Part-Dieu railroad station' walking. Maybe -- IF you know Lyon really well. The P-D station is huge, facing four sides of the district. I took a cab for 10 euros, and it took at least 15 minutes. Likewise the next day. Without a really reliable map, you're not going to find this hotel easily. That said, it was a lovely hotel.

10 minute walk to Presqu'ile!
