The location in the center of Lyon is great, and the Eur 100 price is reasonable given the location. The hotel itself saw much better days, maybe 20-30 years ago, and is not up to snuff, not even for the 3 stars it claims. All furnitures and fittings are dated, although my bathroom was newly and well renovated. Wireless internet... More

This is an old hotel, right in the center of Lyon, basically on the pedestrian area. It is very well positioned if you want to visit the city, but not so good if you have a car. Rooms are small, rather old, and the rooms facing the streets are especially noisy (even in the middle of the night). If you... More

The best part of this hotel is it's location. Walking distance from many major attractions, we never used the subway neither the buses. Perhaps it's better to get down at the train Station Saint Paul, but coming from Lyon Part Dieu is easy as well, you just have to take one direct bus. The room was nice and comfy, we... More

The location of the hotel is great, right in the center, a walking distance from all the major attractions. The hotel itself is quite old, and the rooms are not very specious. I would recommend it if you don't plan to spend too much time in the room. The price is decent compared to other hotels in Lyon, but not... More

With La Residence you get what you pay for. It's a comfortable 2-3* hotel. The rooms are basic but comfortable. Not a lot of amenities but you have what you need. If you are in Lyon to go out and see a lot then this is a good place, the location is pretty central and most of the older parts... More

This was a good hotel. Great location, very central. The room was very comfortable with a nice balcony. The price was very reasonable. Didn't have a lot of character - felt a little generic. But overall a good value.

excellent location and very friendly staff. Given a room at 5th floor which was rather small. Asked for a bigger room and immediately allocated a more spacious room at 3rd floor. A quite good and clean Hotel in the centre of Lyon.

Close by Bellecour and the tourist office, on the pedestrian shopping street filled with lovely balconies. Not luxurious but has all the amenities necessary for comfort. Our room was facing the street with 3 windows that open out, which made it feel very homey. Street noise is low in the evening. Front staff was helpful and friendly (well, the daytime... More

The rooms are small, there is only shampoo and a piece of soap in WC- no kits for sewing, no ear-sticks etc, the fan is low powered and uneasy to use( stuck to the wall at the left side), no mirrow for make-up....

This hotel is perfectly positioned in the heart of Lyon. A slight disagreement upon arrival re our room booking but this was rectified immediately. Would highly recommend if you want to be close to all the activity in the city - surrounded by plenty of restaurants, shops and tourist activities.
