A really nice hotel in a superb location We stayed at this hotel for a week at the beginning of June. Our bedroom was nicely proportioned and very well decorated with smart furnishings. The only down side was the lighting which was subdued, this gave a nice ambience but was not very good for putting on make up- I expect... More

It is an outstanding hotel and I was nervous as it was a 2 star hotel! I enjoyed my stay and the extremely comfy beds and I am looking forward to my next stay!!! Also very friendly staff and an amazing location and I recommend it for short family trips.

We spent one night night in this hotel. It is ideally located, near to the subway, and you can discover a lot of Lyon walking as well. Rooms are small but OK. However I will never go back since I had a dress stolen ! ! I don't know if it came from the staff or from someone outside of... More

The location is fine and it is a nice boutique hotel. Some of the rooms might not be to some people's taste (room doors opening on a patio with tables and chairs). A curious "no alcoholic beverages" policy as well- maybe too many student parties? The rooms were spotless and a nice firm bed - but there was a huge... More

Very well located on a pedestrian street (taxis do drop off at the hotel), adjacent to the Metro and in walking distance of all the sights of the centre of Lyon.

This little hotel in the center of Lyon offers small, functional hotel rooms with air conditioning. The beds are ok, the bath rooms are also ok, but the showers are suffering from low water pressure. The noise level from the street is during the day quite high. The hotel service is attentive.

I spent one night in Alexandra hotel. First impression was very positive as designer's hotel, but everyday life verified it quickly. Main entrance to the room is in the same time a window: one and only source of natural light. So if you want to swich on the lights you have to cover the door/window with the curtain, because the...

The hotel is situated very well. Just in the center on the shopping street. And it is quiet inside thanks to isolation. Staff is friendly. The room is excellent! Everything is in perfect condition. They even made a solid discount for the parking.

This Hotel Alexandra is right on one of the main shopping streets in Lyon. The ease of access walking to old town, or to the square or shopping is the best feature. The underground transit is steps away to access other parts of the city. The staff is quite nice and very helpful. There are only about 8 parking spots... More
