Happy with stay as room was reasonably large and clean, location quite as Victor Hugo is a pedestrianised. Our room overlooked Victor Hugo and we had no noise issues. Our room (304) had a nice shower / bath. Service was polite. But I stop short of 5 stars only because of two things. (1) The in-room tea/coffee facilities are inadequate:... More

The Hotel Residence is in a perfect part of town right near the central Place Bellecour and close to shops, restaurants and subway. The hotel itself is nothing great and nothing bad. They provide a good breakfast, the bathrooms are clean, the televisions work and there is free (but very slow) wifi. The service was a bit cold and the... More

The hotel was within a quick subway ride from the train station, a couple of blocks from Place Bellecour. We had a room in the back of the hotel overlooking a courtyard between several buildings. Consequently there was no noice from the pedestrian friendly Victor Hugo Boulevard. The room was clean and comfortable and, as others have noted, the toilet... More

Pleasant and not so pricey stay in the very center of Lyon. Location of hotel is perfect, 200 m from famous place Bellecour. Some windows looks out into pedestrian street Victor Hugo, that can be noisy at night, but rooms are soundproof enough to be quiet. Rooms are big, toilet is separated from bathroom (big advantage!). A toilet bowl in... More

Very nice hotel in a quiet part of town on a pedestrian strip. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a balcony over the street and even with our doors open never had a problem with noise. The room was a very generous size as was the bathroom, with full-sized bathtub, and the toilet was separate from the... More

This is not the most modern of hotels but it is really well located and very good value. Room was clean and comfortable and had tea making facilities.

This is a traditional city centre hotel - old-fashioned but in a good way. It seemed well run and my room was comfortable and clean. All the furniture was good quality and everything worked fine - shower, wi-fi, kettle, safe etc. It was a nice place to come back to in the evening. The location is excellent. It is two... More

This hotel is in a great location. Easy access to public transport as well as much of the historic district in Lyon. It's not high end but it is clean, quiet and comfortable for short term stays.

I stayed here for about 9 days. My first reaction was that the room was rather tight, and you could tell they struggled to get everything to fit. The bathtub was apparently custom made to get fit, and the toilet was in a different "room", more like a closet. That said, it was a fine, albeit smaller, room, and had... More
