Nice room, balcony overlooking pedestrian street, exceptionally lovely staff. Breakfast buffet is 10 euros but we ordered the smaller in-room continental breakfast for 7 euros, and one was plenty for the two of us.

stayed one night in this hotel and all i can that it was just perfect for me. The location is central to almost all major attractions! place bellecour (as well as all the major shopping locations) and the vieux lyon were only a few minutes away. It is also located right next to the metro bellecour (about a minute or...

We stayed a couple of nights here and was very impressed with the staff's willingness to help us find everything.. from parking options to public transit. They offered to keep our perishable food refrigerated. The location was amazing, right on Victor Hugo near the square. A few blocks walk to old town.. which is not to be missed.

The hotel is centrally located next to the grand piazza and a big shopping passage. If you travel by car, parking spaces are available either at the Hotel Alexandra or various park garages (in our case Parking Bellecourt, approx. 24 EUR for an overnight stay). From Bellecourt to the hotel takes roughly 3-5 minutes by foot. Although the hotel's outside...

My room overlooked the pedestrianised street and was amazingly quiet. The hotel in general was clean and comfortable, with very pleasant service and staff. To be served breakfast was really a pleasure. The location couldn't have been better... Suggestions for improvement: A shower caddy in my little shower cubicle and heavier blackout curtains (for the summer?).

The Hotel is very well located in one of the main shopping streets and it is only a few steps away from Place Bellecour. The Old town vieux lyon as well as all other major attractions are in walking distance. Our room (no 5), was not so small as expected, due to previous reviews. Bed was comfy and everything very...

I would not rate this hotel as terrible, but nor could I completely endorse it. The hotel location is indeed excellent being only a stroll from Belle Cour, also the rooms (despite being rather small) where clean and modern. The main problems where that the room was quite noisy with drunken groups going past shouting and singing until the early...

Hotel Dauphin is in a perfect location, in the center of Lyon's tourist/shopping areas. My wife and I could easily walk to all the places we wanted to visit, and didn't need a car for the week that we stayed. Our "deluxe" room was clean and modern, but quite small. There was about a meter of space around the comfortable...

It was very hot when we stay and there is no air conditioning. Noisy as we had to leave the windows wide open. Ended up sleeping with ear plugs & eye covers to block out the light & noise. The location, staff and price made up for it. Would be best in cooler weather.

I stayed at Du Dauphin for 2 nights. The room is quite small, the lights are dim and the bed not very comfortable. But i really love the location. It is located right in the shopping street; from there you can take a walk on either Rue de la republique or rue du president Edouard to the end of the...
