Lovely hotel with great, caring and helpful staff. Our first night was spent in a room on the 'garden' side overlooking the church (be warned the clock chimes every fifteen minutes - although not late at night or early in the morning). This room was on the first floor and overlooked a playground which was very busy until well after... More

Perrache area is nowadays becoming more fashionable and vivid. Still the traffic is quite reasonable, but public transport works efficiently. Many bakeries and couple of good restaurants just around the corner. Hotel itself has Art Deco style public areas and well kept garden and terrace. Business rooms are located in a separate building with narrow unfurnished balconies. Rooms have separate... More

I stayed in this hotel for 4 days on a BA City Break from London and it was a relaxing good trip enhanced by the experience of this good hotel. The best thing is that my room is spacious, may I say double the size of many comparable London hotels which also charge double! My room even has a balcony... More

OK, after reading the reviews on here, we were a bit worried booking our 3-night stay here... with 2 kids under the age of four, but Wow, we had a great stay! Our quiet room in the detached building had enough space for the 2 baby beds and our queen, and our balcony faced the courtyard. The bathroom was very... More

Judging by the hotel standards in France this was a good experience. Although not the most centrally located, it is a good location when travelling by car, with plenty of parking spaces available in the nearby. Place Bellecour is a 15 minutes walk and a taxi from most central locations will not charge you more than 7-10 Euro (tip included).... More

This hotel doesn't care about its patrons. First, the location is not the best, second their restaurant recommendations are terrible and the directions they give to get to a restaurant has you walking all over the place asking for help. The reporting of issues doesn't get any response. I will not recommend this hotel. The air conditioner didn't work and... More

The hotel was clean and in a convenient location for buses and trains. The staff were accommodating and friendly. We didn't have the right connection for plugging our computer in to charge and we were loaned a cord that we could use from the front desk, however the internet connection didn't work all the time. We were lucky enough to... More

We chose this hotel by changing Miles and More miles to a 2 night stay here. The hotel is good located next to the Perrache railway station and on walking distance of the city center. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, good breakfast. The street where it is located is quite busy, but - as I asked for it - we... More
