4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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!

We stayed in Lyon for the week-end and we had a wonderful and very romantic experience in College Hotel. The design (decoration) of the hotel is amazing with great school atmosphere where you can find every details of a school of 1950's. It's well located in the middle of the old town. The staff is nice and helpful. The breakfast... More

After a great experience in this hotel when I was a tour guide for a group of 32 Australians in September, I decided to return before heading to Geneva for a work- related appointment. I was not disappointed. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the decor is quite different. As a... More

This hotel has wonderful atmosphere- it is decorated like an oldfashioned school. You eat in a classroom and sleep in a very simple room that you may have found in a boarding school. Nice,tidy and clean. Certainly a place i would recommend to somebody looking for something different. Right in the old town. The employees were also very friendly. Not... More

Interesting concept, clean white and plain, basic rooms. Everything is a little run down. The location is perfect but what the 4 star rating is based upon, remains unclear. The breakfast is nice, but the breakfast room is tiny and uncomfortable.

We had planned on staying here four nights. Had called one hotel and they were booked and the College Hotel was given as a recommendation. It was also in our tour book. The outside of the building says FOUR STAR, but honestly I don't know how they figure that out anymore! The reception area was messy. There were stacks of... More
