Differs slightly from the usual Ibis brand in that it seems more like an old style family hotel that has been taken over and refurbished in the Ibis style. Good spacious room with separate bathroom and toilet and very friendly, helpful staff. I needed a purchase on French Amazon forwarding to the hotel as the seller did not deliver to... More

Small central city hotel, perfect location for our needs, close to the university area of town. The reception staff were extremely helpful and forthcoming with recommendations when required. The air con was fab on days when it was 33 degrees.

This hotel is very basic. They provide a bed and a shower, but if you're looking for a four seasons this is not the place to stay and you will be disappointed. Positives: the hotel does have an elevator and if you check out early they will hold your luggage for you, it's nearby to the metro station only about... More

Only stayed 2 nights and it was cheap, however it was seriously in need of a makeover. The rooms were in desperate need of a revamp, and they were not very clean - dust in the corners! However the one good thing was the reception staff, they were very helpful and friendly.

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
