So just before i left for Lyon i hadn't booked a hotel, it was a last minute thing. I chose this hotel because it was the only one that could accommodate me and two of my friends at the last minute. Prior to arriving i spoke to the hotel and booked two rooms. They were not the rooms i wanted.... More

I'm sorry to give this hotel an 'average', it would be 'very good' if it weren't for a few things. The location is perfect if you are interested in the old part of Lyon, and the walk up the hill to the Basilica is right on your doorstep. I loved the location. The hotel itself has room for improvement to... More

Funky, minimalist hotel, painted all white. Quirky little breakfast room, reasonable choice of breakfast, plenty of juices, croissants etc. we stayed three nights, can get a bit noisy as in the middle of the old city so be aware of that if you book. Not a problem for us though.

The hotel was interesting and a bit different which was fun and quirky. The staff were mostly excellent and friendly. The room was very small but other rooms are bigger and more reasonable. Things were clean but rather Spartan. In France air con was great but I am not sure we could change settings. Bed only ble not queen. No... More

Great location, room was clean and comfortable. The terrace is lovely, a nice place to start and end the day. Loved the vintage refrigerators on each floor stocked with complimentary sodas. I would stay here again

This is a hotel in a fantastic location for exploring Lyon. It has secure parking. Clearly, design is an important feature as there are lots of things to look at downstairs, which is a little cluttered. The bedroom was very clean, white-painted and had a small balcony with a great view though it was a little noisy on our first... More

This hotel gets away with it by virtue of its superb location in the Old Town, but its 'école' design ethic gets in the way of a truly great stay. The rooms are clean but tiny for anything more than an overnight, and ours had a bath only, no shower. There is a lot of street noise until the small... More

White rooms are quirky and the labeling around the place is fun. Some rooms have larger bathtubs than others which can be fun if you get a large one. Staff was friendly and helpful. Check-in and check-out was simple. Breakfast was excellent. Location is very good to get around the city, especially the old town area. Would not hesitate to... More

We stayed for a weekend in this cute hotel whose theme is "school" and found the service very friendly with smiling employees everywhere. We would certainly stay here again. The white bedrooms are on the small side but very clean with plenty of closet space, and this being a hotel based on "old school days" the wardrobes are in fact... More

Could have been a nice place to stay: decoration like an old school with very authentic furniture and stuff, but the service is very poor. The meeting rooms not really comfortable and the hotel is very noisy specially for the rooms on the road side... Breakfast quite nice... Overall: great deception!
