I stayed at this hotel in September this year and was very happy with it. The location was excellent (although slightly tricky to find as there was no clear signage on the front of it). The staff were all very friendly and helpful and gave me and excellent tip for a local restaurant, and the hotel has all sorts of...

Charming hotel in the centre of Lyon, in a former silk manufacture. The lobby is very small, the rooms are small too but clean, comfortable beds. Coffee, tea and water is free, there is a free apero every day at 18.00.

The metro is just around the corner with an easy link to the tram, so it was easy to get to and from the airport. I think what made this hotel stand out was...
