The hotel is near the river which can be followed into town. Novotels have fairly unique bathroom deigns and this is no different although if you have a bad back you realise how much bending you have to do to wash your hands and clean your teeth. The only food we had here was an enjoyable breakfast. Beds were comfy... More

Finding a hotel room for a family in Lyon seems to be rather tricky. Now we're only three people but that but that still meant that most hotels in Lyon that we looked at weren't too thrilled at having us unless we booked two rooms or pay a significant extra fee. The Novotel Lyon Gerland was an exception. Not only... More

We stayed one night in this hotel in Lyon. Being our first time in Lyon, we asked the front desk staff for suggestions on what to do there in a few hours. They suggested a walk along the Rhone to the center of town, then on to the Old City area. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk. Our room was very... More

if you are not looking for a place right in the city center, great location, good price in Lyon, all facilities on site, nice rooms with all expected facilities. I was giving some training in their meeting rooms, everything was great, especially the food, from the breakfast to the diner, I have never been disappointed...will recommend for sure this hotel.

It's a very nice Novotel with a great restaurant. The moans? Well parking is hassle and chargeable. You travel a long way in an underground car park passing through two automatic doors. There are concrete pillars everywhere! I bashed my car trying to avoid a different one. The basement car park is incredibly hot, trolleys requiring a 1 Euro deposit... More

I chose this hotel because of our familiarity of the brand, and because of there excellent rate given for a three night stay in their website (heavily discounted). If you're familiar with the brand then this hotel gives you exactly what you're expecting. The hotel is in the 7th Arrondisement of Lyon and is near he A7 motorway that passes... More

Stayed here as part of the "modball" rally. Hotel coped really well with 300+ "modballers" in 150 cars desending on them at once, check in was very efficient considering how many of us arrived at the same time. Hotel manager was working really hard to help us all get parked and checked in quickly. And she also managed to get... More
