We stayed here for 7 days and got a room with our own ensuite. The room had so much character we absolutely loved it. The location is 10/10 I don't think you could be in a better spot as you have everything with in a 5min walk and old town is only across the bridge, the main mall starts 100m... More

I stayed on night and loved the city. The hotel great location. The room I was in was big but very tired. It had a shabby feel to it. The only thing I can not forgive was the shower which had cracked tiles and dirty grouting. The walls of the shower were dirty. Staff were helpful. An overhaul would transform... More

This hotel was modern many decades ago, so if you want a hotel with modern, standard rooms, then this is not the place for you. Each room is furnished with old-fashioned furniture which gives the rooms their individual and special character. Ours fourth floor room was spacious and had a fireplace and large furniture above the mantelpiece. The lift is... More

I'll have to agree with what others are saying about the lift, almost an adventure in itself. If you're not fond of them take the stairs! But i don't doubt its integrity (well that much anyway). Arrived without a reservation and unfotunately the guy behind reception did not speak english. Through my broken french we managed to book a twin... More

Lyon is a city that seems to have it all. Busy river, castle on the hill, wide pedestrian plazas and little winding cobblestoned alleyways, packed with surprises. What a pity, then, that this hotel was a disappointment. There was a hole in the wall, a sloping floor, curtains that wouldn't close properly and a tiny lift that delivered a precarious... More

Budget hotel that has a perfect location. The lift is hilariously insane, from the sixties at least and requires you take the brace position before it gets to your landing (which has a cupboard door thing instead of the usual automatic steel doors.) Room was clean and we got exactly what we expected; and is seconds from the vouex Lyon... More

We booked Hotel Modern for its location which was excellent. It was in the middle of everything. We were lucky to find a parking space on the street right in front of the hotel. It took a lot of skills to park in a tight space. We dealt with two staff, one in each night we stayed. The 1st staff... More

Reasonable low cost hotel in a location with easy access to shopping centre and Old Town with it’s many restaurants. This is an old property and is well lived in. Room and ensuite was cleaned well and towels and toiletries were replaced daily. On arrival the staff at the desk were somewhat indifferent and spoke no English, however the evening... More

Spend 1.5 day in Lyon for some shopping with friends. Find the hotel location ideal, just where you want and need to be for a day of shopping. Price fine and in line with the service so you spend your budget in hotel. No problem also to access the hotel in the middle of the night after a long party... More

The name of the hotel is clearly meant ironic, because it is everything but modern. The rooms are very narrow, not air-conditioned and the walls do not contain any noise. If you have a phone call be sure that the whole hotel will follow your conversation. The elevator is also a last century experience you try once and then never... More
