The hotel is extremely well located for experiencing Lyon - located in the Presqu'ile easy to walk to central Lyon, old Lyon and to the subway for other locations. The staff were very helpful and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean even if a little small, and Wifi worked well. In value for money... More

Hotel was extremely central for seeing all the sights of Lyon. We walked everywhere. Lots of good restaurants and shops close by and an easy stroll to the old Town. Rooms were in the small side but clean. Great WiFi. Owner was very sweet. Only negative was lack of onsite parking. The garages were expensive.

The location of this hotel was great, easy access to all the sights. The staff were very helpful but we did find it a little struggle to get our luggage up the stairs. The room was OK although the shower managed to irrigate the whole bathroom.

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
