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

We arrived in the evening and were met with very friendly and helpful staff and this continued for our stay (two nights). We stayed in the annexe building. Our room was nice - not much room with the double bed and the couch folded out for our son but that was to be expected. Everything was clean and fresh and... More

I stay at this hotel fairly regularly on business . Staff are always helpful, rooms in the annexe ( higher levels preferably) are a good size and well appointed. They overlook a square and attractive old church. No noise problems in the annexe. Breakfast is typical continental buffet style and I find it pretty good. It is an easy walk... More

The hotel looked lovely when we arrived, and our room was ok although a bit small. Had to ask for tea and coffee tray for our room, but was impossible to get milk!!! Staff were friendly though on the whole. It didn't cost too much through booking.com. Very convenient for the trains and town centre.
