Room were excellent, providing everything you need for a pleasant nights rest. Restaurants are close by and transport is easy to access. The hotel is the best value when travelling on a budget. The rooms are more than comfortable.

I wasn't expecting much because it was rated 2 stars, but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was bigger that any we'd had in Paris and Munich which were rated higher. I loved the location in the heart of old town. I left the windows open on several nights and was awakened by people leaving nearby bars in the middle... More

If you are looking for a reasonable (80 euros for a double room) and pleasant small hotel in the attractive vieux lyon, near beautifull monuments, many delicious restaurants, and the well known ice cream shop Nardone (not to be miss), you should try the hotel saint Paul, rue de la lainerie, 100 m from parking saint Jean ( both open...

Hotel Saint Paul in Old Lyon offers charming, affordable, centrally located lodging with friendly, knowledgable, English-speaking staff eager to assist in making your stay a pleasant one. Close to some of Lyon's best gastronomic venues.

We stayed one night in Saint Paul hotel in May 2014 and this was the WORST experience I have ever had. The hotel is full of BEDBUGS and I awakened covered in blood. The director of the hotel is very well aware of the problem but does not seem to care about it. I was not even refunded for the... More

We loved this little hotel, it is beautifully placed for a weekend in Lyon. We had a lovely room on the first floor and had no noise problems. The typically french breakfast suited us perfectly and was served...a most unusual thing now. The staff are very helpful.

This small two-star hotel is in the very center of Lyon, just f few meters to walk into the famous old-town streets and to the Saint Paul station. With very friendly and welcoming service the stay was enjoyable. For two stars and the price you should not expect a luxury hotel, but the room standard is absolutely ok and they... More

If you're travelling for leisure, this hotel has a great location right in the old town, close to the restaurants and bars. It easily reached by the C3 trolleybus from Part Dieu station, and the directions the hotel sent us were easy to follow. Reception was friendly and helpful. Our room was right at the back of the hotel. This... More

We stayed here over the weekend in late September. The double room with bath was much larger than we'd expected and scrupulously clean, and the high ceilings (with exposed beams!) make it feel very spacious. The showerhead hook is low but we did find the shower went high enough to shower standing up and the bath was fantastic. We'd read... More

The Saint Paul hotel, while ideally located in the old section of Lyon, is a seriously flawed choice of a place to stay. It’s located at the beginning of a pedestrian walkway surrounded by lots of restaurant, bars, and resultant noise. The staff is extremely welcoming and friendly; however the reception area is dingy and small. There is no elevator... More
