Terrific location, very helpful staff, good breakfast. Rooms were a decent size, slightly dated and the bed mattress had a rubber or plastic inner liner that did not add to the sleeping experience. Bathroom on the other hand had just been updated. Good central location that I would stay in again for the reasonable rate I was charged

Stayed from Monday to Friday and enjoyed every minute of this beautiful city. The hotel was perfectly situated for touring the city in any direction. It was clean and the staff very helpful (thanks Sebastian for your kindness) and I will return but I will pay the extra and get a more comfortable 5th or 6th floor room.

Excellent location. Close to everything you will want to see it to eat. Decent value for the money. Facility could use some attention. THE STAFF IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST AND WILL MAKE YOUR STAY WORTHWHILE.

The location is situated at the heart of the old city of Lyon. Great access to shops where you can buy food and shop. No air conditioning unit and June is summer so wasn't able to sleep comfortably, windows can't be opened coz its noisy outside. Hope they install air conditioning units to use during summer.

This hotel is right in the middle of the Presque L'Ille, between the Saone and Rhone rivers in Lyon. It has a small plaza in front with a couple of restaurants, so there is light and it is not directly on the main street. This is not a luxury hotel, but our room on the second (third for Americans) floor...

We stayed here for 3 nights and couldn't have been happier with the location. Day and night staff were extremely friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We had one standard double and an economy single. Single is small but if you are only there to sleep it doesn't matter. No air conditioning so sleeping with the windows open a little...

Hotel located in the city centre providing a good access to almost anything. The staff was friendly and really helpful, even if I arrived late in the night. I stayed in a single room.

The hotel was clean and tidy, the staff were very accommodating, polite and friendly, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. The downside was that the room lacked a decent wardrobe (we were stopping for 5 nights) and there was lack of a shelf for toiletries in the bathroom. Having said that the hotel was very well placed...

Dear Robbie, Thank you for your rewarding comment. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
