The hotel was very very good with a perfect location right next to the central train station. The room was spacious and clean with all the conforts that we needed. The staff was ok but not very welcoming. The wifi was very weak and didnt work most of the time.

I stayed in the Dubost Hotel in Lyon in July 2012. The hotel is excellent value and very well priced considering its location. I was a tourist visiting Lyon for the first time and arrived by train at Perrache station and I had no trouble finding this hotel. It was in the perfect location, in Place Carnot, no more than...

I stayed in this hotel 2 nights in September. The room was not very big and it looked a bit old fashioned but it was okay to me. I had a bed and a bathroom and that was what mattered most to me. I used a special offer and the room was very cheap. The location at the Place Carnot... More

We spent 5 nights at the Dubost at the end of September and although the room was not huge we were very comfortable. Our room looked onto Place Carnot but there was very little noise even though Perrache Station is almost next door! The staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel was well kept. We would have liked a... More

We stayed at Dubost Hotel in September last year. Location is brilliant, just 5 steps away from Lyon Perrache train station. Room was quite old, but comfortable. As everybody here mentions, we were asked to pay in advance for our stay. WiFi connection was OK in our room, but password had to be renewed every several hours! To sum up...... More

By far the worst hotel experience during our one-month trip through Europe. First, at the check-in we were swamped with "rules" what we had to do and what we must not do. We were also asked to pay immediately and not at the check-out. Only after paying we were told that the - even though advertised as such - Wifi... More

I enjoyed my 2 nights at this hotel, mainly due to its location only a stone's throw from Lyon Perrache station, so great if you have an early morning train. I was asked to pay up front for both nights on arrival which wasn't an issue. The hotel is on 5 floors and a small lift to get you up... More

The hotel is located outside the Perrache station and metro which is extremely convenient. It is also a convenient location to visit the tourist sites in the Presquile district and the surrounding areas. There are also good restaurants nearby. We were given a room which overlooked Place Carnot which is a pleasant sight. The room is smallish but functional equipped... More
