This was my second stay at Hotelo in the last 3 years. Room was good and clean and we were delivered coffee at 10.00 pm by an excellent gentleman from front desk. Over the road is the superb Georges restaurant a great Lyon institution. Easy walk into centre of town through pedestrian only streets.

This is a small friendly family run hotel near the centre of Lyon. 5 minutes walk from tram/underground interchange. Room for one was good, but would be cozy for 2 guests. Bathroom recently renovated and very modern and clean. Hotel staff friendly and reception/breakfast area has lots of information etc. Breakfast was an additonal cost 7 euros, but worth it.... More

This is a decent option for Lyon. Rooms are rather small but very clean, with a clean bathroom. My bed and mattress was good. Curtains were sufficient. Breakfast was great, and staff was friendly. It is off course not a high-end hotel, so don’t expect too much luxury, but in this price range it is the best I had until... More

This place was overall a great budget option. The room was very clean, and had a unique look that made it look sleek and comfortable. The price was very good so you don't break the bank here and the staff was very nice to us considering there was a bit of a language barrier (our French isn't great). The only... More

Nice modern hotel, appeared to be very clean. Small but adequate room and good bathroom. However had no sleep due to bed bugs. I tried to sweep them off mattress. Some like small brown beetles, others almost colourless. Wouldn't risk staying here again but may be its confined to one room as there are some very good reviews about the... More

This hotel was highly recommended in several guide books including the well known French one Le guide du routard. Comfortable room with large shower area. Plenty of towel rails which is unusual in a small hotel. Very good breakfast with piping hot coffee all the time. Breakfast consisted of a generous amount of bread and a variety of jams and... More

This hotel is in a good location right next to the Perrache train station. It's within walking distance to most of what is worth seeing in Lyon. The room was fairly small and basic, but clean and comfortable with air conditioning. The day we arrived, we needed to find a gas station before we could return our rental car. The... More

Hotelo is a modern hotel located very near Perrache train/metro station. The room was very small but extremely clean and modern. This is a good option if you're looking for budget accomm near transport. If you're there in December a Christmas market in Place Carnot is approx 100m away.

The location, while not the best, is still conveniently located right next to the Perrache station. 2 stops (if you're too lazy to walk) away from Bellecour. So really, you can't really complain about the location. The hotel itself may look somewhat non too impressive from the outside and so is the surrounding area, but this is really not a... More
