The hotel has the old ibis style. It is not like the most modern ibis, but has a good confort level. The hotel is a little bit far away from the main touristic attraction of Lyon. Not many restaurants are around. The metro line is about 3 block away.

Stayed here for two nights and couldn't wait to leave. Yes, the price was extremely cheap but I at least expected a lot more out of a brand name hotel. The hotel lobby is undergoing renovation and from what I read on previous reviews it was sorely needed. Yet I think they are changing it from old cheap to new... More

120 euros/ night for this old hotel. A part from where it's located and the welcoming personnel. This hotel isn't worth it. Really old, cold and noisy. Looks like changes have never been made since last decade if you have a choice choose a different hotel for the same money you can get better. But won't get same location ...

When I arrived I was shocked by the state if the front desk. Seriously how can you have a hotel business with such a state. If I did not have a reservation I would have left. Rooms are small as expected with dirty walls carpet and curtains. One positiv point it is central

The hotel is well located, near public transportation. Walking distance (20 minutes) from the main atractions and the old town. The staff of the hotel was very polite and helpful. breakfast is normal. We have a problem with a cancellation of a room in another hotel in NICE and the staff by the main desk help us to sort it...

We stay for 1 night for a stop-over en route to South of France and to visit a family member living nearby. The hotel is in the center of Lyon within walking distance of many of the places of interest in Lyon [for people who are able and willing to walk 20/30 mins]. If not you will find metro and... More

It's an old hotel, and we got a very small room and a comfortable bed. No minibar. When I went to take a shower the following morning I noticed hair on the floor of the shower, which was disgusting. They charge 13€/night for parking and there are not many nice restaurants close by, so you'll probably have to go elsewhere... More
