We had never stayed in Clermont-Ferrand but wanted to break a rather long journey from Drome-Provence back to our house in La Vienne and chose the Hotel Le Lion. We booked on-line. It was really great to discover that not only was the hotel centrally located but also that there was subsidised parking available in the large underground car park... More

This hotel is exactly on the Place Jaude. The parking is really convenient and when you come up from either the stairs or the elevator, the hotel is in front of you. The rooms are clean and spacious. The bathrooms are clean and modern fixtures. You won't find a better value!

The new decor of the hotel is fantastic - we were on the first floor facing onto the square and it was really really nice. The bar downstairs was open late after we have been for dinner and served great drinks! The view of the square was really nice and bustling with people. Trying to get to the hotel was... More

Recently visited this hotel whilst in Clermont. Located in the Place de Jaude, which is right in the centre of town it makes a very convenient place to stay. Parking is relatively easy as there is an underground car park with pedestrian access approx. 70 metres across the Place to the hotel. Once inside the hotel we were welcomed with... More

This was the final night of our 2015 hiking trip and what a fine choice of hotels. This is not a large hotel but located on a very large "town Square" with some excellent restaurants and shopping nearby. Very modern and bright well decorated. Lighting was controlled by key card. An excellent coffee maker and a large comfortable bed was... More

I stayed there in the end of May 2015. As a business traveler, I think the hotel was great for its location (Tramway stops just outside, and it is really city center), the room was quite and clean. The bathroom was quite big, and the people working there very helpful. The Brasserie downstairs is very decent, also I wouldn't call... More

The autoroute passes to the east of Clermont Ferrand - so should you. The 'Old Town' of Clermont Ferrand proves that the words 'Old' and 'Interesting' and 'Attractive' are not automatically interchangeable. Park in Parking Vercingetorix and walk to hotel. Ring bell repeatedly and loudly when ignored by waiting staff and someone will eventually turn up. Nice spacious room (mini... More

If you don't travel very light, don't visit this hotel. You cannot access the hotel in a car as it is in a pedestrianised area. No mention is made of this in the description. You can't even park alongside to gt luggage out. You have to go to the underground cr park, and then drag your luggage across the square... More

I spent five nights at this delightful, small hotel. The location was perfect - in the middle of town on the main square. The room was lovely, bright and clean, overlooking the square. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. The staff was very as accommodating and friendly.
