The hotel is located out of Lyon, has good size rooms and excellent dinner. Staff speaks good English and service is quite good. The taxi to the city center is about 50EUR. I would emphasize of the quality of the food, nice dinners that I had here.

Trip for job to Lyon. The hotel is located in a good position to reach the industrial area and it is out of traffic. The hotel is clean, well organised, rooms clean. There is also a good restaurant inside. The only negative point was that it was not possible to switch the air conditionair off in the room.

We stayed 1 night and were amazed to see that it was not even close to any 4 stars hotel in France...i wonder how can this happen? it is clean and quite spacious but has no "soul" or any consideration for the guests experience. The room and bathroom were cold and ugly, withithout any slight attempt to create some ambience... More

Stayed here for business many times. The complimentary bus shuttle from the airport is much appreciated. If you want to dine in the restaurant there is a good choice of foods. (There is also a McDonald's nextdoor...) The rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable. The only downside is that the surrounding area is rather dull, and it doesn't exactly... More

We had a positive experience here. The rooms were comfy, flat screen tv and internet in room, and the bathroom was huge! Front desk staff were helpful, spoke English. Breakfast was continental and McDonalds is right across street, for late night snacks. It was perfect for our commuting to Lyon and back and reasonably priced.

Several sites say the hotel offers shuttle service to the airport. This is only partly true. It's in a small town that's 15 mins. from the airport and the shuttle doesn't run before 10 or after 5--worthless for international flights. It will cost you 30 Euros or more for a cab ride and you'll be stuck in a town with... More

Hotel Ambassadeur is clearly oriented toward business people during the week. The hotel was nearly empty on a Saturday night when we stayed to catch an early flight at the nearby Lyon Airport. The room was modern, roomy, quite pleasant, and the bed was comfortable. But the heat pump or whatever served as air conditioning didn't work and we were... More
