Stayed earlier in July for two nights and stayed on the sixth floor. Hotel bright and quiet breakfast enjoyable. Staff throughout the building were very friendly and efficient. Hotel is located close to station and lots of restaurants and bars as well as a tram stop. Recommended

Perfect location by a nice park, central train station near by, available parking. The hotel is pretty basic but very clean and nice with a sweet balcony restaurant. Great value for money, would definitely recommend this place!

In a business trip to Lyon, I stayed at Best Western Charlemagne for five nights in February. Location: only a few minutes walk from TGV Perrache Station. You can hop on a tram from the stop in front of the hotel (Suchet) and reach Debourg or Part-Dieu without change, which is convenient. For daily shopping, the Confluence Shopping Centre is... More

Comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the church and leafy grounds. Large French doors opening to the balcony were very welcome in hot weather. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful in a large room opening onto courtyard giving the option to have a relaxed open air breakfast. A large outdoor seating area and covered walkway between accommodation blocks, with plants and... More

We stayed here for 2Nights and wouldn't go there again. The hotel is located close to the Railwaystation Perache and you can easily walk in the center or take tram or metro. The breakfast area is quiet and nicely decorated. The variety and freshness of food was average. Unfortunately from our room we looked into a busy street. Although our... More

Located near the station, in maybe a not so nice place but 10 minutes walking from the center. Nice room, modern furniture. I had a bad experience with the electronic key not working, I had to come back to reception for 3 times, bringing my luggage! Then they accompanied me to the room, and came other 2 times to try...

We only stayed one night but the overall impression was good. Friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, very comfortable room, easy on street parking and a short walk to the centre. There is a deal with a private car park but as it was just one night we popped a couple of Euros in the meter for the hour or... More

The location is excellent, near everything, but most rooms are VERY small - there was no space to open my luggage. Some rooms are renovated but are still small, some have balcony. Finally got a room on 4th floor with balcony which was a bit larger. There is no fridge in the rooms, nor minibar. The breakfast is very basic,... More

Stayed here for 6 nights attending a work training course in November. I probably wouldn't have selected it otherwise and while the staff were professional, I wouldn't say anyone was overly friendly or welcoming (no one was rude, it was just very official). When attempting to book it took two unanswered e-mails (through their website) before I got a response,... More
