Republik Hotel has a great location close to Metro and amenities. It was convenient, attractive, comfortable, clean, quiet and had very helpful staff. Exactly what I was hoping for. Metro, amenities and hang out options were close at hand. Electrical outlets were above counter level so I did not have to crawl around on the floor to charge my electronic... More

Went for one night for business and stayed at the Republik. Very good location. Small rooms but mine had been recently renovated and was very clean. The intérieur was modern even if the room was painstakinly small (I had to open the suitcase on the bed as there wasn't enough room to place it on the floor). Staff helpful and... More

The hotel looks nice. Its clean and modern. But there are a few irritating things. The bed has a thin plastic sheet on the matress. Not very comfortable. In the shower there is no place to put your shampoo except the floor. There is no place to hang your towel either so that you can reach it from the shower.... More

I've stayed in this hotel for one night. First thing that I noticed when just arrived - the SMELL!! it's awful on the reception, I believe because of the dogs that they keep there The location is great and I guess that's the only positive thing about the hotel. Bellecour square is just near and the historical part of the... More

I had no problem with my room apart from there not being a kettle to make a cup of tea. I had to clean brown marks off the bath tub before using it and the shower head is hand held only. But you can have a bath. The bed is clean and comfortable and there is plenty of room to... More

Don't stay here. Disgusting smell in the reception and poor welcome set the tone. Rooms are tiny and DIRTY. Don't try complaining, the owner will try and blame it on your spoilt attitude. Free parking consists of 2 parallel parking spaces in the street which were of course unavailable.

When we got to our reserved room, we unplugged the TV so that we could turn on the fan. The room was VERY small, so we hoped that it would be cool when we returned from dinner. It was not, so we checked out, and we have not had our money refunded, even though we called and wrote a letter.... More

This is the worst hotel I know in Lyon. For 70 € a day (I stayed 4 days), I got a very small room which was incredibly dirty, the carpet and the walls were full of stains. The bathroom was similar, furthermore with a lot of dust, the washbasin didn't hold on to the wall, and was supported by a... More
