The location is excellent, just off Place Bellecour and five minutes' walk from the metro station. For directions to the hotel from the station, check out Kindred Spirits' review of October 2014. I wish I had done so before I travelled. As to the hotel itself, many of the reviews here have got it right. The reception staff were friendly... More

The hotel is very well located in Lyon. Depending on room assigned at reception, the room could be very well decorated and very cosy or just acceptable. Breakfast was nice enough with fresh fruits and pastries.

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
