This hotel is easy to find in a city centre location. It has secure underground parking. It is decorated very well with lifts to all floors. You can walk in non traffic zones to all the major attractions. Quiet good choice

The hotel garage is a huge plus, although it is a little tricky to drive to since it's in a pedestrian area. The receptionist directed us to a street nearby that had parking places since the garage was already fully booked when we reserved. Luckily we arrived on a Saturday since the longest you can park with a parking ticket... More

We booked this hotel through booking.com at the last moment and came to Lyon by the last bus from Torino, Italy. It was very easy to find the place even the hotel main entrance is located in the hidden corridor. The hotel is very modern that your can tell as soon as you get into elevator. Our room was on...

Lyon's Tourist Information Office booked our stay at the last minute for us. We felt really lucky, as we got a hotel in a great location at a great price. I could not have done better if I had planned way ahead. The hotel is in great condition. The building itself must be old, but the inside is very modern.... More

The external appearance of this hotel is a real shame only because it might put off some visitors. You enter via the entrance leading to the hotel's private parking garage (reserve ahead of time). In fact, there's hardly anything to make it appear to be a hotel. But this hidden gem is a real find. The hotel has recently been... More

Chose the Hotel Alexandra because we wanted a hotel with a lift and near the metro. The hotel is located on a pedestrian street only a few steps from the metro. A good size glass elevator goes from the ground to all of the five floors. Most of the sites are" walkable" or only a few metro stops away. We... More

I found this hotel perfect to explore Lyon. Very clean and comfortable room. The breakfast buffet was not cheap (16 euros per person) but it was very good. Parking in the hotel was a plus but it cost 28 euros per day. The room was renovated and had good size. Very helpful and nice staff.
