very close to a main shopping area, a train station and a delicious inexpensive breakfast bakery. the folks at the reception spoke enough English to help us book a very early morning taxi for our departure, which was great! the hotel is a short walk to a huge park with a free zoo, botanical garden and wonderful walking trails. the...

We are happy that we have discovered this new little jewel in Lyon. The owner and his team give you a very warm welcome and want to ensure that you will enjoy your stay at their place. They all are very involved by making your stay and the hotel to a success. We liked the decor of the hotel and... More

The positive things about the hotel were its proximity to Parc de la Tete d'Or, which is beautiful and a must when visiting Lyon. Also walking distance to the other side of the city. We found a really nice gyro place across the street for lunch run by a Tunisian man who was really helpful and provided free wifi. The... More

I actually loved this hotel, but rated it average because it really is pretty basic. It's an old-fashioned, owner-run place, small and genuinely friendly. The breakfast is excellent, with good coffee served in a pot and willingly replenished. Small room, good bed, adequate bath. No decor to speak of. Double-glazing controlled the noise of the busy street, but it would... More

Am so often disappointed by hotels these days, that the little unpretentious Tete d'or came as a really pleasant surprise. I wouldn't describe the room I had as enormous but the proportions were good, the bathroom was excellent (and comparatively generous in size) and frankly at this price point (60€), I wasn't expecting any better and the quality of the...

The hotel is situated on a great location... all what you need in (central) Lyon is on walking distance. The hotel stuff is really kind and helpful. The rooms are basic and practical. The hotel dispose also with an internal garage if you travel with the car. There is only two small problem... The first one is that you don't... More

Had one night in Lyon and wanted to stay close to a friend's house which was by the park. We booked just a few days before and they only had one double room left, unfortunately it was a very small room. Granted it was only 50 euros so it was very cheap. Honestly, a 11 sq meter room is about... More

Stayed here for one night- conveniently located to metro (Messena). Had room on the fifth floor- two person elevator to the fourth floor and a flight of stairs up the the fifth so be forewarned. The room was nicely decorated, good size, bathroom was adequate- had a nozzle for a shower but not really possible to take one- no curtain.... More

We stayed in this hotel when it was called Hotel Olympique during the Light Festival. We booked it because it was the only place I could find in Lyon for that weekend, everything else was booked out. The hotel manager was lovely, the breakfast was good. The room was basic and a little small, but was clean and had everything... More

Selected this hotel because of its location. It is around 15 min by walk to the big park ( Tete d'Or Park) and similar time to the big shopping mall. And it is quite close to the Metro line A station Massena ( around 7 min by walk). The room is small, but it is comfortable. The bathroom is big... More
