We loved this hotel: although the rooms are 'smallish', they have everything you could want. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff goes out of their way to ensure you are comfortable and well-informed. The hotel is nicely located in the peninsula. We enjoyed the restaurant that was recommended by the helpful staff.

Rooms are quite cozy by American standards, but average sized by European standards. Showed up a few days early so ended up staying in 2 different rooms, and during my stay saw a few other rooms. Much nicer than other European hotels I have stayed in. The morning breakfasts (assorted fruit, cheeses, breads, tea, coffee) were nice and unlimited.

You can't ask for a better location- parking nearby, restaurants, shopping and tourist attractions all within a few minutes walk. And the staff is excellent- helpful, friendly and efficient! They were happy to communicate with me prior to our arrival, and followed through with arranging and delivering champagne to our room as I requested. We were generously upgraded to the... More

Great location, easy to walk to many attractions, or take public transportation. Metro stop and bus stop close by. My room overlooked the street and had gorgeous view of the Theatre from my window. Room was small, but clean, bed very comfortable, bathroom updated. There is no staff after 10 PM, and the front door is locked at 10PM. When... More

Located extremely conveniently near shopping and the old city. We didn't have the breakfasts so can't comment on those. The Staff could not have been more friendly or helpful and spoke very good English. Close to river with a lovely track to walk or run. I can highly recommend this hotel. Good value too. Small rooms but well looked after.... More

Friendly staff, excellent location but the rooms were small and dark and in need of updating. Narrow staircase not ideal for big people & heavy suitcases - the lift could only fit 1 person in so not really suited for a family.

Hello and thanks for your review. We have differents types of room. The standard rooms are 12 m², the Superior rooms 16 m² and the Junior Suite 35 m². As we are located in the city center in an old building it's true that the lift isn't huge; but it can easily welcome 2 persons at the same time. We... More

This is a charming small hotel with loads of atmosphere and wonderful service. We were right in the heart of Lyon, easily accessible to the best shopping and the old City. Normally, in France, we have breakfast in local cafes, but the breakfasts here were first-rate. A great combination: we felt at home and yet wonderfully 'away.'

The only downside side to our stay was that we were not staying longer. Room and staff absolutely wonderful and we will be back one day as it was not long enough.
