This is a great wee hotel in a fantastic location in the old part of Lyon. It is close to many restaurants and bars and the river. It is also a short walk to the main shopping area. Lyon is a lovely city and this hotel is a great base from which to explore. Smallest elevator I've ever seen!

We stayed two nights. Reception staff are really friendly and helpful. Location is handy as in the centre and only a few minutes stroll to the old town. The room was clean and had a really good bed, shower and tv. Only slight drawback is that they charge 5 euros for 24 hours usage of the wifi, and this is... More

Tiniest room we had on our European travels, but we're only there to sleep, so what does it matter? Tiny elevator. Nice renovated private bathroom. Clean and quite comfortable. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and location is fantastic. You can walk to nearly everything you would want to see in Lyon.

This hotel was perfectly comfortable and the bedroom was clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was also fine but the two best things about this hotel were its position and the helpful reception staff. We could walk to everywhere in central Lyon and catch the metro from Bellecour, all within a short walk. The best salon de the and... More

This is a lovely hotel, located in close to the shopping district and the old town. Easy to walk to shops, restaurants and both the scenic river promenades. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble. We had two rooms which were very comfortable, interestingly the twin room for our teenagers was considerably more spacious than... More

This is a small 3 star hotel situated in the heart of Lyon, next to the Theater. The location is perfect with all the main shopping areas around it and vieux Lyon within easy walking distance across the river. The underground parking "Les Cellestines" is conveniently located right next to the hotel. As a tip, parking in Lyon is always... More

Service is very goods with freindly front desk staff. My room was quite small over looking a brick wall, but clean..aircon not so good so very hot at night. Location good, right in the centre of town so easy to walk to any attraction. Breakfast was a bit basic, but adequate.

I love this hotel; I'm actually here at the moment on one of my all-too-infrequent trips to Lyon. It's a quaint and characterful hotel in Lyon's Old Quarter which is, in my opinion, the perfect location. It's smack in the middle of wonderful bars and restaurants with an array of unique shops to delight even the weariest shopper. The rooms... More

This hotel is situated in the heart of old Lyon, just off the river Saone, surrounded by stylish shops, bars and restaurants. From the moment we arrived at the hotel the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had asked prior to our visit for the concierge to make a reservation at a local bouchon for us, however, it was... More

The room was clean and neat. Location is excellent and on a less busy street. Really nice between the shopping square and the river. We enjoyed being able to walk so easily to many parts of the city and it was an easy walk to the metro. The service was excellent; particularly the front desk girl our first night (August... More
