We stayed here while my husband was on business. The hotel is very well located with a metro stop close by. It is possible to walk into the centre of Lyon if you enjoy a bit of exercise. This Mercure is a step above most. The room was really nicely decorated with new, deep carpeting and plenty of space to... More

While the hotel was not close to the Lyon attractions, the location was convenient to public transportation and felt very safe. The room was very warm, cozy and quiet. The staff was helpful. Breakfast was standard for Europe.

I had stayed here a few years ago and remembered it as a bit lacking in atmosphere. But I was pleasantly surprised. I had a horrendous journey and arrived after midnight. The desk clerk was very sympathetic and welcoming and gave me a privilege room which was spacious. I slept very well there indeed both nights. Breakfast is expensive but... More

Stunning building of Mercure Lyon Lumiere impressed me a lot in photographs and I decided to book this accommodation for my two days stay in the city. It proved to be a great decision. The moment I entered the building, I was left surprised. Not only the exterior, but interior of the building is also equally impressive. From reception to... More

Situated on a arterial route in Lyon, very near Sans Souci Metro Stop on Line B (blue) and easily accessed from the main station Gare Part-Dieu, also the main stop for trains to the airport. On arrival at Lyon the hotel is two short metro journeys away. The metro itself is quick, clean and appears safe. I messed up an... More

Lyon is a beautiful town. There is the old town Vieux Lyon which is like a scene from Harry potters “Diagon Alley” and then there is the modern area which has the likes of Hermes and Superdry and all the other major brand names you know. The Mercure Lumiere is not located near any of those places but getting there... More

This hotel deserves it's 'very good' rating, but there is nothing special (unique) about it. A good standard Mercure hotel - but with wonderfully charming and helpful staff. Check-in and check-out was a breeze and as they knew I was practicing my French, they were patient enough - although more than happy to leap into excellent English. The restaurant menu... More

While booking a room for one this hotel appeared expensive but services and facilities were just as fine as any other place in the city. Air-condition, coffee machine and clean comfortable rooms surprised me and more than that was highly co-operative, professional and prompt staff of the hotel.

This is you typical Mercure everything is scripted per chain standards. A bit further away from touristy area, but a jump on the métro will bring you there in 10 mins. Good rooms, quiet area. And a rarity, a parking garage with plenty of space.

Good chain hotel, reliable (comfortable if rather small room, good air-con). Pleasant and efficient staff. Perhaps not the best location to explore Lyon though (a few stops to the centre on the metro). Coffee at breakfast was pretty awful (again! Why do French hotels struggle so much to brew a decent cup of coffee??) and the hot food options were... More
