When i checked in to this supposed 4 star hotel in the lovely city of Lyon I was given a room that probably hadn' t been upgraded since the Napoleonic Wars. Couldn' t swing a cat in it, it was so small! I complained and was grudgingly (the staff specialise in grudging) given another room. Why didn't they give me... More

Stayed for three nights. Location of the hotel is superb. Rooms are small but ok. Very clean. Unfortunately not well soundproofed. For the overall service there is still room to improve. Good breakfast.

I've stayed here at least a half-dozen times - one word for my experience: consistency. Service and staff is always excellent. Rooms and common areas always clean. The Location is unbeatable. I always look forward to staying here when business takes me to Lyon.

Good location in the middle of the city. The staff is friendly and helpful. However, this doesn't compensate for the fact that the hotel is very shabby and in need of a complete update/renovation. Not especially cheap for the quality of the accommodation.

Very good stay, hotel is generally comfortable although for American visitors access to American TV news station would be helpful. Location is excellent access to many resturants and attractions nearby.

ok but not more than that, breakfast was ok but had no eggs, Bacon or any other warm food, pubic hair at the bathroom floor and toilet floor upon arrival, location is good though, if you like a nice hotel breakfast you should choose another hotel

The location was perfect. The room very comfortable and spacious for the price. The best thing was the very helpful and friendly staff. Every restaurant recommendation was spot-on. We would stay here again.

Walk out the door and explore the beautiful streets of Lyon. The very friendly staff make you feel right at home. The rooms were fine - a bit older decor, air conditioning, carpet, products etc but the beds were fine and we were out walking most of the time so we didn't notice. A solid hotel.

We stayed in room 65 for three nights. Our room was spacious, bathroom was well equiped with a bath, double basin, haidryer and sufficient toiletries. The receptionists are very friendly. We had breakfast outside the hotel, at the Brioche Doree (a French chain, with delicious pastries and coffee). Two freshly brewed coffees plus four criply baked Danish pasries there cost... More
