The staff provided excellent service with the attention to detail one would expect. The hotel has a modern, bright and spacious ambience. There is a nice outdoor heated swimming pool. The rooms are spacious and air conditioned - a must for a good night's rest! Free Wi-Fi. There was a very wide range of choices for breakfast. The restaurant is... More

As we had a car called up the hotel to check the parking situation. The staff informed that we can park the car in the basement where Novotel has designated parking for 8EUR... More

Stay at hotel was ok I could grumble there was no bath in the room even though it states there are baths in rooms on the hotel website. Breakfast was nice although staff don't clear plates and they just get stacked up If I could ask for my reply from the manager to be in English and not be a... More

Dear Guest First of all, thank you for your feedback. The hotel does have rooms equiped with baths, but not all of them are. Unfortunately, as you were travelling with your family, our family rooms only have a shower and we could not give you a room with a bath. Thanks to your comments we will be able to improve... More

Stayed with tour group. Hotel is clean and comfortable but on the small side. We had two suitcases and found it hard to move around the room if both were open. The hotel is not near the city of the city.

The reception staff are very helpful and speak excellent English. We only had breakfast which was of a very good quality. Only down for us was a very slight musty smell in the corridors but nothing awful.The hotel isn't right in the centre of Lyon but close to a " hop on hop off" bus stop for Musee des Confluences...

Novotel as a chain means you could actually be staying anywhere so avoid if you want local atmosphere. Above all check room supplies on arrival because if there's no toilet paper you won't get anything until after 7:00am and then you will have to collect from reception! The rooms are very comfortable, spacious and provide good views from the upper... More

Used this hotel numerous times on the way to the south of France. It's not in central Lyon but is just through the tunnel heading south and is across on the opposite river bank - in other words a great location for a stopover Plenty of parking and if you have a roof box they allow you to park out...

Stayed a couple of nights and was pretty pleased overall. not cheap though. I really enjoyed the hotel' restaurant - saved me the 30+mn walk to the center to find a restaurant! Location is good for business south of Lyon and near the conference centers. maybe not so good for tourism as a bit out-centered.
