This hotel's worst feature is its location with no local amenities. I walked quite far in one direction and failed to find any restaurant or even as much as a bakery. As other guests have commented the decor is ratherdated. Nonetheless it was clean and the reception staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming (yes even in France - this is... More

This hotel is suitable for business being centrally located to Lyon's downtown business district. Accommodations are adequate though the facility definitely needs an update. The desk staff is multi-lingual and accommodating. In-room entertainment does not have much to offer the international traveler, though the internet connection was good. However, good dining choices are not located within convenient walking distance and... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a Trafalgar tour. Unfortunately, a member of our group had her purse stolen in the breakfast room. A man acting as a tourist unable to speak the language distracted while another person came and took her purse. This, or course, was very traumatizing for her! It is important to watch out... More

Dear Sir, Than you for your comments. We wish to add that you travel with a tour operator, in this case the guide is automatically informed and reminds to his group that you should not leave at sight and unattended personal objects in a public place as our restaurant, our hall... Furthermore, on every table in the breakfast room, we... More

This hotel is located a bit out of the way for the tourist sites we visited. Good thing we were on a tour and had a bus to chauffeur us around. Clean and good breakfast. My friend was never able to connect to wifi.

On the plus side, the staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. For me, the location is also very convenient as I have a client across the road. I had a junior suite which was decorated in a sort of faux 70s style. The cream, pebbledash walls are, though, everywhere. The suite was quite noisy -- it sounded as if a... More

Poor, it is dated and my bed smelled of stale sweat. The staff did not upgrade me, I did ask twice as I am a platinum Club Accor guest and they did not explain why. I paid two times for the high-speed wifi - which was NOT high speed and I could not use it at all, so I am... More

As a family of 5 we had to book two rooms. One with an extra bed, the room a bit too small for the extra bed. Would have a been nice to be booked into a larger room with at least three beds. Clean and ok breakfast.

Stayed here on business in December 2013. The location is quite uneventful but the service is good and friendly. A hotel bar is open until midnight. Breakfast offering is good and plentiful, room is clean.

I stayed at Novotel Gerland for 6 nights to attend business meetings. The staff is helpful and accomodating, the rooms nice, and the food good. As others have noted, it is located in a business district and it's a hike to Old Town. The Metro stop isn't that far away, I think some people simply are not used to walking... More
