“Very charming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. We had a large room that faced the square. The room was sound proof so there was no noise from the street. You can open the windows and get a great view. The room was large for european standards and the bathroom was very modern. The breakfast was adaquate and the staff was very friendly. They were very helpful about dinner recommendations and reservations. This is a boutique hotel and each room is different. We stayed in the main section of the building. You do walk up a few sets of stairs but it was easy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

We had a very short overnight stay in Lyon, so mainly chose the Hotel Bayard for it's central location, we weren't disappointed, 5 mins walk over the river into the old town and 2 mins from the main shopping areas. I booked the hotel due to excellent tripadvisor reviews, I would never normally book a 2 star hotel, so was slightly concerned on arrival, as the hotel is only visible by the door canopy and hotel entrance is a corridor, followed by 2 small flights of stone stairs! However, my concern soon disappeared as we were warmly greeted and very quickly checked in at the reception, directed to our rooms, which were large beautiful, immaculately clean and ours was a mix of traditional, in a modern sort of way! We took a look around at some of the empty rooms on departure and they were fabulous old style French interiors with lovely parquet flooring. Only downside is no bar facilities, but this hotels great central location and charm, certaining makes up for this. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Reception level front rooms, beautiful traditional French.

The rooms feel like you've walked into old style France which is awesome. My husband and I stayed in room 4 which is lovely and big. Warm and inviting. Massive king size bed which is very comfortable. The bathroom is small but sufficient. Staff are very helpful. Breakfast is not so great for the price. Coffee wasn't nice and had to ask numerous times for milk even though we ordered 'cafe creme'. Would recommend to stay here as location is great. Close to shops and restaurants. There is a yummy Italian restaurant on the corner which I would highly recommend. All in all Lyon is a nice place to stay. Not much to do but shopping and eating but what's better then that?

My partner and I have just returned from a lovely three-night stay at this hotel. We were in room 4 at the front of the hotel - it was absolutely gorgeous, with beautiful original features such as the parquet flooring, marble fireplace etc., and good views over Place Bellecour. Very spacious. Very comfortable super-kingsize bed, and the room was cosy: temperatures were well below freezing during our stay, and the radiators kept the room lovely and warm - but crucially, we could also turn them down if we wanted, which I really appreciated. Bathroom was small but fine, with a good shower. No free toiletries (shower gel dispenser in shower) - but what can you expect with a budget hotel? Budget it is, but despite this the rooms really are very nice indeed - ours felt luxurious.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel so I can't comment on that.
Location is great: on Place Bellecour, with the metro nearby, and the old town and the museums and sights of the Presqu'ile all within easy walking distance. Highly recommended!

The location between the 2 main shopping streets in the heart of Lyon is perfect, there are many lovely restaurants and cafés nearby. The staff at the frontdesk was super helpful and the room was spacious by french standards. Confortable beds and lovely atmosphare, no complaints. Really enjoyed our stay!
