Very friendly people working here. Easy access using public transportation (3 bus lines right in front of the hotel, and 1 line about 200 yards away) or Vevo'V (public bike rental program). Clean room (althought not very big). If the rate includes breakfast, please take it. While the selection could be improved, the quality of the food offered was top... More

We spent two nights in this hotel: clean, spacious and silent room; very kind staff always ready to help you, great breakfast even if not in the price of the room. The hotel seems to be far from downtown, but the bus stop is just in front of the door and in 10 minutes you are in the historical part... More

We travelled from Calais to Turin, breaking the journey in Lyon. Our SatNav took us almost straight to the door (on a pedestrian part so not able to get right up to the door) and we found the car park easily. Check in was quick and easy and the room was lovely, spacious and clean. There were dressing gowns and... More

We booked this hotel having been to Lyon and expecting the hotel to be older in style. This is an excellent hotel! It is modern and very comfortable, quiet and with excellent facilities and service. There is secure parking underneath (the hotel will verify your ticket for a lower rate). The area itself is interesting as it seemed to be... More

We stayed here for 5 nights whilst sightseeing Lyon & the Beaujolais area. The hotel was just perfect. It's a 10 min bus journey into the centre of town (c5) or the main station (c1) and the bus stop is opposite the hotel. We are so glad we stayed near the beautiful Parc rather than stay in town, much greener.... More

I originally booked one family room, the website allowed this after putting age of son 16. I was later contacted by the hotel to confirm one room was booked but would only allow two persons.

The hotel is extremely well situated in a quiet place on the riverside of the Rhone, close to the beautiful Parc de la Tete d'Or. Despite a busy street nearby, it is very quiet in the room. We liked very much the decoration of our room, which was also very well equipped. We greatly appreciated the kettle and tea/coffee/cacao/cream supply... More
