As our expectation were quite low for this hotel we were surprised by the cleanliness and the sleeping conditions of the place, they're not as good as you can find in a 4-star but still good. The only problem was its location, right next to Lyon Perrache station but really far from the main station (Part Dieu) and from the... More

My friend and I stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed it. The staff was all very helpful and kind. The elevator was broken, so we asked for a room on a lower floor and they were very accommodating. The room was clean and good size for France. The park and train station nearby are a bit sketchy at night,... More

The Berlioz is located in a rather seedy part of Lyon just south of the very rundown SNCF Perrache station. It is really worth paying a bit more and staying on the other (northern side) which gets gradually better as you approach the Bellecour Place. If you need to be near a mainline rail station, Part-Dieu is much better. The... More

Perfect location with tram stop to Lyon Part Dieu station right outside (20 mins) and Lyon Perrache local station and metro station 5 mins walk away. Staff incredibly helpful - speak good English if needed or will be patient / helpful / apppreciative when you try French. Rooms rather small and the shower cubicles built for nobody larger than a...

Clean room, comfortable bed, lovely breakfast well worth the 8 euros,but best of all the staff here are charming, helpful and polite. The first night we parked our Vauxhall Meriva at the front door. Later a receptionist guided us to a free parking place close by. Four days not enough. I'd give it 10 out of 10.

Conveniently located for travel purposes - beside the bus and train stations. Acceptable budget hotel for short stay in Lyon.

My sister and I stayed here for a night. No real issues, but definitely and little dingy. Service wasn't particularly amazing either, but hey, this is France. Of more concern, however, was the overall sketchiness of the area. I'd definitely recommend staying north of the train station if you can afford to. Convenient location though.

I also had an issue with price of booking. I booked in Nov 06 through a booking website and arrived in Sep 07 being told that an email had been sent and price had changed. Price was more than DOUBLE and email was sent only 24 hours before check-in, which I didn't see and in any case is too late... More
