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

for 62 euros, I got an outstanding deal. The hotel is classy, I got a very quite stylish room and everything worked to perfection. The attendant was really sweet and is exactly the opposite of our image of French staff. The wifi connection worked very well inside the room! I would definitely come back!

This hotel is nestled right in the center of Lyon, between 2 major squares, Place Carnot and Place Bellecour. It has been beautifully refurbished and is chic and cozy. My room was called "On the roofs of Lyon" and was located on the top floor with a nice view of the rooftops, but the neatest thing was its layout, which... More

We stayed at the Alexandra for 3 nights. The staff was friendly upon our late check in and directed us to a place to eat. The room was clean but extremely small. There was barely enough space to unzip our bags on the floor. It is very bare bones (for example no tissues in the room) but the staff was... More

This hotel is in a very convenient location, right across from the metro and on a (relatively) quiet pedestrian street. My fiancee and I stayed here for two nights and our room was nicely decorated and, most importantly, clean. The staff was helpful and made several local calls for us in order to help us find dinner reservations. Our room... More

We stayed in their 2-bedroom loft room (I believe it was room #4) for 2 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are small though and it was difficult for the 3 of us to navigate from one room to the other and we really could not relax without being on top of each other. Luckily, the outside... More

Very good positioning, close to shopping and resturant district, close to train station and to metro stop. but the room are too small, and the breakfast is in the reception area. To be clear is a 2 star hotel and not 3. For 1 or 2 days is very good
