I recently stayed at this hotel in Lyon with my cousin and my friend. We had a triple room with 3 beds. The room was very spacious and clean. We were all very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice too. We had a cute little balcony looking over the street in front of our hotel, which we loved. It's in...

Our room had modern decor, free wireless, a great view of the basilica, and an adequate shower/bathroom. This hotel is close to shops, restaurants, bars, and parking garages. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

NIcely set, it feels like an old hotel that was renovated. To me the highlight was the typically french arguing power and extremely courteous service of the receptionist Karine.

Builders are on site presently. Should they inform us in advance? Room was warm and overlooked apartments. A light over basin mirror would be helpful. My biggest gripe was the mattress protectors were made of some sort of plastic/rubber material causing one to sweat and making an annoying noise. Get rid of this item Management.! Breakfast buffet was good and...

This hotel is extremely well situated in the center of Lyon. We were a little afraid it would be noisy but it was very well insulated from the street. Lots of nice restaurants all around. The breakfast at the hotel is fine, if a bit busy (small downstairs room). If you are looking for more ambiance and better quality, head...

We stayed here for 2 nights earlier this month. The hotel is in a great location and the staff is exceptionally friendly.
