I stayed at this hotel a week ago, while participating a seminar. I was happy to enter a very clean and comfortable room with a nice park view. It is located near a tram station, which is very convenient, since the tram/metro/bus lines are really simple to use and they take you everywhere. The staff of the hotel was more... More

The hotel is located a 15 minutes away from the Lyon convention centre by foot, and it is next to the Lyon congress centre. It seems many people mix the two separate venues. The "Congress centre" is a small venue 2 minutes from the hotel, WHEREAS the "Convention centre" is the large newly built venue a pleasant 15 minute walk... More

Breakfast was better than average with plenty of fruit and other items available. Convenient for congress Centre when not raining as the walk is pleasant. There is... More

This hotel is 15 min walk from the congress centre, so it is a false label to call it a the congress hotel. It is 10 euros one way in taxi. Hotel is ok, but interior decoration looks 70s or 80s, room had e.g. purple marble - never seen that before and it was not to my liking. I could... More

Clean room, comfortable bed, excellent breakfasts, very nice, helpful and willing staf, 24/7 functional wi-fi. Bus/tram stops are about 50-100 m far from hotel. There are several Velo'V stations (bicycles to share) in the nearest neighbourhood. I strongly recommend to use this kind of transport for going downtown and for trips.

The hotel is a choice one may consider if one has a congress or business to attend to at the Cite Internationale, which is a bout 15 min casual walk from the hotel. The room I stayed was a standard one, but does contain all the amenities necessary for a nice stay. The room was clean and rather spacious. Air... More

Despite of how hotel looks from the outside, it has beautiful rooms. There are carpets everywhere so nobody can feel cold. Each room has a bathtub, bidet, separate toilet, safe deposit, small fridge, TV, two chairs, desks and beds. Everything looking beautiful and serving perfectly. There is only one disadvantage, wardrobe is too small. Still if you are used to... More

If you want old city charm, this isn't your hotel. With that out of the way, this is a good place to stay. It's very close to the park, 10 minutes from Gare Part Dieu train station by taxi, and walking distance to many restaurants and sites including Place des Terreaux and the shopping district in which it sits as...

I was attending a conference in Lyon and this hotel was particularly convenient as it was only 100 metres from the conference centre. I booked a single room but they gave me a room that would accommodate 3 people and the price was very reasonable. The room was clean and tidy with an adequate view of the local scenery. Breakfast...

I'm flabbergasted at some of the reviews on here. We got an amazing deal for three nights in this hotel and after reading some reviews started to worry, but there was no need. The staff are fantastic, speak perfect English ( embarrassingly so :-) ) and helped quickly with any minor problem. The hotel is dated, but not so much... More
