This hotel comes up as 3 star hotel. I don't know how the hotel stars are taken in France. Surely you are not buying from market. No room service available. Breakfast is horrible. Do not take breakfast package with this hotel, apart from the small buffet nothing on. You can not request twin bed higher than 2nd floor. There is... More

Pros: - The Hotel is located at 5 minues walk from the beautiful de la Teté D'or park, where you can go for a run. The running... More

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

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
