We were visiting my niece in Rillieux-la-Pape and Initially planned to stay 3 nights. We left after the first night because of the very miserable status of the room and surroundings. Not sure this hotel is respecting the safety standards. No problem to get our deposit back. Reception desk OK. We changed for the IBIS.

We chose this hotel because we were visiting relatives who lived around the corner. The next time we go back to Lyon, we will stay elsewhere and take the metro if needed. The hotel is very, very basic. The only thing good about it is the price. We were told it had been recently renovated. They should have done more.... More

Great location for ease of getting to Opera Lyon. Quiet but near bars and restaurants. Helpful, friendly staff. Basic continental beakfast, but nice artisan boulangerie nearby with great cakes and sandwiches.

We picked this place because we were on a tight budget and this place was the closest to the center of town for a reasonable price. It wasn't amazing, but we were happy with it overall. The location was the best thing. From the hotel walking it takes about 15 minutes to get into the center of town. There is... More

My husband and I were pleased to have found a hotel in a completely untouristy neighborhood. It's two minutes to the nearest subway station, so we were able to get around Lyon (on a metro day-pass) with ease. There were some difficulties that were not exactly the hotel's fault, but they could have been a bit more sympathetic to a... More

We have been visiting Lyon for years and have stayed in many of its hotels. On this trip we stayed in this and two other hotels on our way to and from the south. The room prices were 69 (Chartres), 74 (Lyon) and 150 Euros (Fontainbleau). The Croix Rousse was far superior to the hotel in Chartres, and the advantages... More

Nice friendly staff, with a good breakfast and breakfast room, and a public area/reception which was ok, but not the sort of place to relax or linger. The location was very handy for the Metro and Croix Rousse is a decent area with superb views. We stayed for three nights and found the beds very comfortable and bathroom clean, but... More

I'm giving this an average rating for a 2 star hotel although the corridors were a little dingy and almost forgotten it seemed when rooms were given recent coat of paint. Our room was small but functional, bright and clean. The bathroom was clean but tired. Not expensive relative to hotel options in Lyon. Basic continental breakfast was 8 euros... More

Hotel looked Shabby and small, not good for long stay accomodation. The Booking Company and myself were told the cancellation fee would be waived, but 1 week later I find they have taken 144.00 Euro out of my card, I am an aged pensioner and that is a lot of money to me.

Madame, we are suprised that you have given such a disapointing opinion for our hotel, you reserved 30 nights in our hotel thinking it was a appartment hotel (self catering) how is that possible??? when you arrived at our hotel you remarked that you had made a mistake and cancelled the totality of your stay: you didn't sleep once in...

Small but clean and comfortable room decorated in a modern-deco style. 15-20 min walk to eat streets Rue de Garet & Rue Verdi in the Opera area. We were lucky enough to experience an excellent street market on Saturday morning (the best we've seen in France to date). We only stayed 1 night but wish we had stayed longer. Would... More
