    That was the most horrible hotel I've been to in my life. The room was small. The whole bathroom there is made of some plastic, and the toilet and shower are extremely close. The towels were rough and looked not clean, I do not know for what reason they brought me four towels. They were all hanged up in one place, half of them ended up on the floor. The breakfast consists of some tasteless small croussons, some mueslis, youghurt, bread, one kind of cheese, there was no ham, no fresh fruits, no cookies, no nothing. That was definitely not worth of 8 euros paid for it. You do not get a hairdryer there by default, you got to go to reception and ask them to give you a hairdryer. Internet is slow, and you always need to log in with the password once you turn on the computer, that's extremely annoying. All in all, if you go for a price - it's better to choose a hostel than this, if you go for a quality - it's better to pay 20 euros more to stay in a decent hotel.

    Reasonably close to attractions, Nice staff, Pleasant lobby and breakfast room.

    Convenient location within easy walking distance to Perrache Station. Free wifi in room using your personal laptop. Breakfast is available for extra if you desire.

    Having stayed here several times before, our room this time (#5) had a musty oder. While generally clean, the a/c vent (return) over the door was clogged with thick dust. This may have been the reason for the musty smell. The bathroom tile grout was black & could use a bleaching. The room was fine for a short stay & more comfortable for one person. For 2 people, it was a bit tight. When the drapes were closed, the curtains were somewhat in the bed with you. Also, all rooms do not have a/C. If this is important to you, be sure to get specific confirmation. Lyon can be quite warm in the summer. We asked for a room that we had previously which was more acceptable to us. It was available but we were denied access. They said they preferred to keep it available as an option for a third person or a child because it was a little roomier & they could put a cot or a crib in it if needed. We were disappointed there was no loyalty to a past guest. We generally pass thru the area once a year & will now consider other options.

    Good value for money, clean, pleasant staff. Have stayed once before in 2010 & returned because of the previous stated comments. Have a booking again in several weeks to stay here. Would recommend.

    I stayed in this hotel at the beginning of april so maybe that's why my stay was very comfortable, calm and without any big problem

    I didn't like the TV set very much, it was vista so the loading was very slow.Also near the hotel was the school so in the morning it was very noisy. And yhe location of the hotel it''s not so comfortable, it takes 15-20 minutes to the old center of the town and 30-35 minutes to the train station (on foot)

    Affordable clean rooms and walking distance from most things. Nice enough for two nights.

    The people from the hotel are really nice, pleasent and helpfull. The room wasn't big but sufficient enough and was tidy, clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom is mini but enough for me and very clean. Though if you're big, shower might be a problem but they might have other rooms with bigger bathrooms. The hotel has a good atmosphere and is close to the most center part of Lyon, two steps from train and tram station Lyon-Parrache. And there's a very fine street of antiques and art galleries next to the hotel.

    I asked for a suggestion of a restaurant, and the in one they gave "Le Poléon d'Or" I had a very unfriendly reception, meal wasn't very interesting, paid 35€ and left with a hungry belly. But it could have been a bad day for the restaurant... I suggest to check at Trip Advisor, which I didn't, for good restaurants. But it has nothing to do with the hotel, the hotel was fine!

    The hotel was close to Lyon Perrache station which makes travelling easy. It is also close to a little outdoor mall area which was good for finding something to eat. The building was under renovation when we stayed but it looks like it is a very nice building and will be quite pretty inside when done.

    The hotel was fine but the renovations were a little noisy and when we arrived there was no water for a few hours (a bit tricky washing hands/going to the bathroom etc.). It was fine for a short trip since we were mostly out of our room, but I found the lack of notification regarding the renovation a little frustrating, and when I asked about maybe the 6 euro breakfast as compensation the lady at the desk flattly refused. Oh also the bathroom was really awful. Honestly the smallest I have ever seen with the worst shower in the world! Overall the hotel was okay, but I wouldn't stay there again, I didn't like the feel of the place or the lady at the desk that much.

    Staff was pleasant. The hotel and room was very comfortable and homelike. It was in a safe and good location to metro and shops and the old town.

    The Hotel staff was very charming and pleasant. The hotel is in center of town.

    The hotel was cosy and in a good location. Nearby is a good shopping street, and Vieux Lyon is in walking distance. There's a lot of different transportation options close by that work smoothly. Computer and TV in the room was pure luxury, and a very nice staff lifted the atmosphere. A very pleasant hotel, that I definitely would book again!

    The breakfast buffé was very french, but it was still an OK start to the day. We ended up spending 4 nights at the hotel during a heatwave, so at night the room got hot. As a last remark I would encourage the hotel to invest in better sound-proofed windows, I'm not a light sleeper, but can see that some people might have trouble sleeping.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Tasteful decor and restful atmosphere. With the exception of one 'off- hand' experience on Monday 29th October, the staff were welcoming and friendly, and the rooms are kept clean.

    Breakfast is the weak point. Insufficient care is taken to make sure that the buffet is kept replenished along with an adequate supply of cutlery or plates. This creates an air of parsimony when either an item of food is just not there, or if it is the requisite plate is missing. Breakfast shouldn't be about foraging. It is a failing easy to remedy.

  • Couple
    5.4

    The hotel was basically okay. There's nothing seriously wrong with it, but it doesn't go above and beyond basic rooms and facilities. Note that the hotel is decorated with a cherry theme (think cherry-shaped pottery and bowls of fake cherries). Whether you find this cute or chintzy is entirely a matter of personal taste.

    The hotel is situated in a rather down-and-dirty part of town. While the proximity of the Perrache railway station does provide easy access to public transports, it's also a noticeably grungy neighbourhood with grimy buildings and a park littered with discarded mattresses - and homeless people napping on them. Not exactly a place where you'd take a stroll in your Pradas, is what I'm saying.
