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

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

Very nice suite setup for 2 adults and kids 11 and 13, pull out couch comfortable enough for one night for the kids. Decided to order room service for dinner as restaurant was already booked for first seating and had a long drive from Bern. Spaghetti w pesto, al dente but bland, too much oil. Shrimp w mango, melon, feta... 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

The best thing about the Novotel Gerland is that it provides exactly what you would expect from this type of hotel. The bed is comfortable, the shower is good and the room is clean. On top of that the staff were all very pleasant and helpful, the wifi is free and the food edible. I should also mention that the... More

Ok in terms of location. The hotel is functional, has what you expect of a Novotel with no frills. Wifi poor and no leisure facilities. The hotel though really in expensive at about 130 euro room only. Breakfast is also a fairly expensive extra.
