This hotel is right in the downtown Lyon, on a pedestrian only street. It can be difficult to unload your luggage if you can't find a spot on the side street. We found parking on the street and since we arrived late, it was fine. Otherwise I suggest parking at the nearby parking lot and pay. Large room with air...

Small and decent hotel. Not really fancy, but decent clean rooms. Good breakfast. The location is really great - next to Place Bellcour, in the center of Lyon area. Decent price as well. Have stayed her easy times on business trips. Good value for money!

The Hotel La Residence is very close to the Bellecour Metro Stop, maybe a five minute walk (if that much). It's on a wide pedestrian shopping mall, though the much better mall is a bit further away, across the Bellecour park. There are restaurants all around the area, and you are one stop away from the Roman Amphitheater and the...

I have stayed at La Residence four times for 9 or 10 days each time. This is not a luxury property. However, it is clean and comfortable, and is in a great location just south of Bellecour. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful. NOTE: if you are a light sleeper, request one of the few rooms that...

Close to the centre with its myriad of shops and restaurants this hotel is good value. It is worth paying a little extra for a larger room. The buffet breakfast is good but the room does get hot when it is busy at weekends.

The location between the two rivers and near the Bellecour metro is excellent and a 35 minute walk from the Part Dieu railway station. The room was not large but clean and functional. The reception staff were friendly helpful and spoke English as well as French.

We chose this hotel for its location and because we got a good price on a family room. Even though our room faced the main street , we didn't have any problems with noise. Breakfast was included in the room rate. Staff were friendly and willing to help us when we had questions. Lots of restaurants near by.
