Stayed in the hotel for business. Met by a very corteous receptionist. A good start! Less enjoyable was the size of the only elevator in the building. I could barely fit my luggage and myself. The surprise was even bigger when I entered my room. It was hard to enter! Reason being that I could barely open the door without... More

Hotel well situated near Place Bellecour, and a very beautifull entrance, but unfortunately inside very small, basic rooms. Small bathroom with an open shower, so you 1,5sqm bathroom is soaking wet after a careful attempt to shower... when opening your cupboard, door to bathroom couldn't be opened, bed very basic and more moteish comfort... Staff friendly, breakfast ok, but again,... More

We booked a superior category room at a rather expensive rate from a website; the room was wide, but bathroom was certainly not in that category; also, the bed was definitely too small (130 cm wide); when we claimed a different room, they offered a smoke-smelling one! Good by.

My husband and I spent four nights at this hotel. Location is really good, right in the center of the old city of Lyon right near Place Bellcour. This hotel people are very friendly, dependable, and speak good english. We had a corner room, and it was airy, well equipped, clean, and nice. Breakfast was typical french and good.

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid September based upon a Rick Steve recommendation and favorable reviews on TA, and were only truly disappointed with the lack of a shower. After stepping into a nice, deep jacuzzi tub you see a shower head on a flexible line, but there is no way to attach it to the wall, so... More

We chose this hotel at random! It was fantastic, right in the centre of town. More importantly, the staff were amazing with their information and knowledge, knowing we only had one day and night We had one of the best meals of our entire stay thanks to the recommendation of the staff. Best of all, they organised a driver to... More

Good location and breathtaking interior! Great interior design work. Breakfast is excellent - think crispy croissants, fresh baguettes and milky coffee followed by a cigarette afterwards outside the main door. Staff are amazingly helpful and very knowledgeable about the city's attractions and can recommend the best restaurants.

Basic everything, staff nice mostly, one lady very helpful with our lost luggage, continental breakfast is nice. Vicinity to the main town center and the river was quite good. Would stay again on budget
