Excellently run hotel. Service was quick and efficient and the facilities matched. Restaurant did us proud so no complaints. Only small item was - only supplied 4 coat hangers in the wardrobe for a double room; two people on holiday will need at least double. However when asked to supplement this was done with speed. As this is a hotel... More

We stayed one night here recently as part of a longer journey south to Spain. The hotel was close enough to walk from the station with small suitcases. The hotel is modern, clean and comfortable and provides everything needed for a restful night's stay. The rooms are large and well equipped. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept exceptionally... More

Well placed in Lyon. Easy to get to/from. Decent hotel. Nothing special. What you'd expect of this brand.. ie spacious; modern; comfortable rooms with typical chain hotel decor. Clean and well-serviced. Did not use the restaurant except for coffee and a croissant at the bar - why would you in Lyon with all the wonderful restaurants to choose from.

Came to Lyon for two days. I was looking for a hotel that is close to the center, yet relatively inexpensive and not in the middle of the happening. The hotel is good and serves a good breakfast. it has a swimming pool and a gym. the rooms are soundproof, something that allows you to sleep with your head just... More

Found this hotel while searching with “city center / in house parking (EUR 19 p.n.) as first priorities. The hotel exterior looked quite old as well as the room with dark interior. Located near city center. Few tram stops or nice walk by the river to city center. Buy a day ticket about EUR 5. The day ticket is valid... More

The Mercure Grand Hotel was a very good hotel in a reasonable location. We were with a tour so distance from the city centre wasn't an issue. The room was spacious and modern with an excellent bathroom layout (probably the best that we have seen so far). The room was very quiet however had only minimal coffee/tea making facilities. The...

Excellent choice if you want a walking distance to the train station and the citi center. You can access both easy. Rooms are big for any standard. Friendly staff. Carpeted rooms. Free wifi that works well. Nice bar and big size entrance. Good choice.

Found hotel to be a little out of the Centre but as we are driving it wasn't too bad. The staff were as another reviewer put it snooty, but the valets were friendly. The room was large and clean. Nespresso is a great touch.

We stayed at the Mercure Saxe Lafayette with our 5-year old for a long weekend in August. The rooms were very spacious and our kid had a whole double to herself. Comfy beds, huge TV, free WIFI (good speed too!), fridge, kettle and complimentary Evian. Absolutely nothing missing. The location means you can walk from the main station easily. Yes,... More
