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.

Stayed on one of the busiest weekends for travel, as stopover on way back from skiing. Generally the hotel is of good specification. The room was large, well equipped and clean. The bedding was very comfortable. Main issue was that the restaurant and bar were clearly under staffed on the Saturday evening when what must have been a known busy... More

If you are looking for a good hotel south the city of Lyon, not far from Perrache train station & well conected with Metro & Tramway, so Novotel Gerland is a good solution. The only less positive point is the price by night of the rooms (consider around 170 euros/night during week days and over 200 euros for weekend nights)

The room was obviously designed for pygmies or leprechauns. The hallway actually smelled like a stable or a bad gymnasium. We reserved a double bed and got two singles and a rollaway. It was wall to wall bed until we folded the rollaway up into an especially uncomfortable chair. The bath, closet, and fridge were tiny. The icing on the... More

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.
