we chose the hotel for its location and fitness center...I did not think of asking the opening hours ! becasue they built a room on top of the fitness, it cannot open before 8am ! really disappointing.

This hotel is easy to find off the highway and well located Ali g the Rhone river fir a morning jog but a fair way from the charm of Lyon city centre. You can walk to a shopping center along the tram line about ten mins walk away with a Carre Four and Vapiano restaurant and handy if going to... More

The service was regular, the food regular (I was expecting so much more judging by the fame of the city about food). The breakfast was not bad and the location is not ideal, you can take a tram and being... More

We spent a very quiet week-end in this hotel, had dinner at the restaurant as well. The service was perfect and the Food was great. The bed was very good and the room absolutely quiet. The pool is beautiful and weather permitting eating outside must be very nice.

This hotel is very nice. The rooms were clean and nice. The WiFi was included and the speed was reasonable. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was great and the staff were super nice and helpful. There is tram station T1 very close to the hotel (5 min walk) that takes you to the metro station.

A hotel which offers no frills except that the evening meals that they serve in the restaurant can be pretty good. Breakfast at times can be a challenge as well as access to the rooms as this hotel is used by tour groups that obviously arrive all at once and also wan to eat all at once. There are no... More

Nice hotel but not fantastic. Typical Novotel accommodation, no frills. We spend only one night as we were on the road so we did not discover all the hotel areas. A little too far from the centre of Lyon.

We stayed two nights in this hotel, and really enjoyed it, and the city. The staff were extremely friendly and service oriented, especially at the front desk. Great suggestions for places to eat, and where to go on the rented bikes. Rooms were comfortable and spacious. The staff and hotel also deserve a special compliment on how child-friendly they are....
