We stayed 4 nights here. The rooms are huge compared to hotels in Paris. We were quite pleased that my wife’s luggage and my luggage can be opened together at the same time! The streets get pretty quiet in the night, so you don't have to worry about noise in the evening. We walked from Lyon Part Dieu to the... More

It is already said. A good and well managed chain hotel. With an interesting restaurant and a very pleasant bar. And plenty of details of good taste all around. The building itself is very interesting. A beautiful Art-Déco apartments building, together with the adjacent 1932 luxury garage. Of course, the interiors have been completely refurbished, but it is good that... More

Genuinely friendly helpful staff, even sitting in the foyer with a magazine was pleasurable. Couldn't fault the breakfast although they are clearly busy at certain times and can run out of things but there is plenty of selection. We had one of the premium rooms with a sofa and mini bar, however I'm sure the standard of cleanliness and the... More

I had to attend a meeting at Mercure Saxe Lafayette in Lyon, and decided to stay there for one night. Personnel was very kind and welcoming, room was very modern and quiet, free wi-fi, very comfortable bed. Very much recommended for business trips.

Nice clean well run hotel, close to the train station; though, so close that the cab driver added a 2 euro short trip fee, it came out of his tip mind you (in fact it was his tip). 10 minute walk to the river then across the bridge and you're in the more touristy areas of town. Close to the... More

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
