The place was excellent in terms of location (just above Part Dieu metro station with the major bus station closeby) and just next to the main mall. The staff are friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay, definitely will come back when we are in Lyon next time!

The hotel is just seconds from Lyon Part Dieu train station. It shares the entrance with Athena hotel, so don't be mislead. The room is small but comfortable, service is very good, decent free Wi-Fi. Just remember - the city center is far away. Hotel is near metro station and tram/bus station (and huge shopping mall), but you need to... More

The hotel is less than five minutes walk from the main railway station of Lyon but is protected from the noise. It has all that one might expect from a Novotel, but with the exception of an above average breakfast there is nothing outs tangly good and importantly nothing outstandingly bad.

We told by our tour director that all Novotel Hotels were basically plain and simple. I'll go one step further...they are in need upgrading and renovation. To me, the director was doing damage control before we arrived to our rooms. And he was right. It was nothing to get excited about. In other words, there were no big smiles from... More

The best thing about this hotel is its proximity to the train station and therefore the centre of town. That aside it is a regular Novotel you know what your getting and they do a good job of it. The staff at this particular location were very friendly and helpful although if you want a late drink they won't let... More

Good location for those travelling by train, like us. The room was ok but very warm, even after adjusting the air con. We had to have the window open to cool it down which then let in a lot of traffic noise. Breakfast was great and the staff friendly. The restaurant/cafe had a small menu but the food was good....

The hotel is 200m from the station, next to a huge shopping mall. Good location thus, calm but with a view on the trains if you like it. For the rest, it's a typical four star, very clean but no personality. Breakfast is nice and staff friendly.
