I stayed for 4 days in July 2014. This is my second stay at this hotel. As a former resident and regular visitor to Lyon I have previously struggled to find a good value, clean hotel in a good location. Hotel de la Marne tick all these boxes. Close to Bellecour and a short walk to Vieux Lyon, the hotel... More

The hotel is not bad, the best thing about it is the bathroom, with all facilities. But the location is not that good if you are interested in staying near the highlights in the city. But the worst thing of all: I got bitten by bedbugs in the bed!!!!! That was in room 22. Yet something else: how come the... More

We had a little 2 room apartment an upstairs room with 2 double beds and on the ground floor another small bedroom. Everything was tiny, but very clean and newly renovated. Our teenage children enjoyed that breakfast was served until 11:30! It's in a central area.

The smallest, darkest room I have ever stayed in. There were shutters on the outside as well as the inside of the windows which the charming receptionist explained was 'because we are on the street'. There was a strong stale cigarette smell. It soon became apparent that you could not open the outer shutters as they opened across the pavement,... More

Normally we stay in another hotel, but unfortunately it was fully booked. So we tried the Hotel de la Marne. Whilst it is quite well placed and near the metro which took us to the right places, the hotel itself was quite a horrible experience. The carpets in the room, but also the landing and stairs, was dirty and in... More

The best thing about this hotel is that is was an amazing value. My wife and I were backpacking through western Europe and this was one of the least expensive places on the trip. Despite the price, the hotel was perfectly decent. The room was basic but clean. We had A/C, a nice ensuite bathroom, and an automatic screen for... More

We were in room number 5. The room itself was well decorated with a rustic sort of feel to it. As it was a room for three people, there were two bathrooms which was a plus! There were both really clean and the showers were great, contrary to that of many hostels and hotels we have stayed at recently!  Staff... More

Hotels are expansive in Lyon and there isn't much choice if you are on a low budget. This hotel is ok. It is clean. Rooms are not particulary nice, but not ugly either. The street of the hotel is really nice, there are some great restaurants there as well. It is not in the center of the old town though.... More
