This is an old hotel owned by some really sweet people. The best part of the hotel was location! It was right in the center and very close to everything--food, shopping, sights! The hotel does have a distinct smell and is small. We were always out and about and we just stayed at the hotel to sleep and get ready... More

Great location in the heart of Lyon, between the Rhone and the Saone and a half block from Place des Jacobins. Easy, pleasant walk to vieux Lyons with its wonderful cafés (actually, I'm not sure there is a bad café in Lyon). Nice, clean basic room plus friendly and helpful staff. Good WiFi -- but no on-site parking. Excellent value.

Took a cab from the train station, Part Dieu. Stayed for here 3 nights at convenient Central City location, which we used as a base to walk Lyon. Hotel is walking distance to old city, river markets to buy crafts, fresh fruits and cheeses, museums, and restaurants. Room was on small side but clean. This is basic accommodations so don’t...

When I first arrived in Lyon, without reservations, I took a cheap hotel near the train station, Part Dieu. However, on my first foray into the Central City, I found the Elysee Hotel, a sweet little place right off Place Bellecourt, in the heart of Lyon - walking distance to all the great food, shopping, museums, and the old city...

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
