This budget hotel is in a good, central location near the old city, the metro and lots of shopping and restaurants. As other reviewers have said, this is not luxury. The rooms are small and plain, but very clean and the service is wonderful, friendly, and helpful. We would gladly stay there again!

Clean, pleasant, budget hotel in a good, central location. You get what you pay for - this is far from luxury accommodation, but the staff are very pleasant, rooms are clean and the hotel is within easy walking distance of key sites. Either no elevator or it doesn't seem to go to the ground floor - this also means that... More

Here's a basic but good value hotel in a marvellous location in Lyon. It's right at the most elegant end of the shopping street Rue Edouard Herriot, and near Place Bellecour, a major Lyon landmark. You can walk to anywhere in the city centre easily from here, including the picturesque old part of the city. There are steep stairs from... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night in February. We received a very warm welcome from the man on the desk. He was very helpful with advice on restaurants. We really appreciated his kindness - for us, this 'made' this hotel. We had a room facing the street, but it was double glazed and very quiet. The room was... More

Stayed here for only one night in March. Hotel is located on a street that has shopping and was convenient to the Metro right down the street. Room was basic, with a shower that is small. Otherwise, had no problem with the room. Clean. Tidy. Safe. Person manning the front desk was friendly and had good recommendations for dining. The... More

The hotel is very easy to find if you're travelling by car. It's in the city center. Parking is also not far from the hotel - 5 min walk. Gentleman at the reception is charming and helpful. Lift is starting from only 1st flor - receptionist helped us to clime stears:) The room is not big and not so comfortable.... More

This is a perfect hotel in Lyon. The location is very central. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean and rooms are comfortable. Breakfast is very nice and the Wifi works ! The staff are really friendly and helpful. We would definitley stay here again.

Stayed here with 2 friends in Jan 2014. The location was excellent, close to city centre, old Lyon and bellecour station. I booked a triple room but they gave us a single plus double for the same price, so it turned out for the better. The service was excellent but pricey breakfast. Internet was very fast reliable. Would stay there... More

I must say I was horrified when we entered this hotel, I was going to sack our travel agent however within a few hours I'd totally warmed to it. Very close to everything, great breakfast, wonderfully helpful staff but basic, no frills accommodation. I would stay here again.
