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

I spent two nights in the hotel in a twin bed room. The hotel is near the univeristy and the park of the tete d'or (10 min walking). The room and the bed are both comfortable, with a TV with different channels. However, only a few foreign TV channels are set. The bathroom is big and nicely stuffed. The breakfast... More

This is certainly not a hotel for a longer stay. There is not much around it and the hotel itself is a bit dated. But it has EVERYTHING for a short stay on a longer trip to somewhere else. It's also in a short enough driving distance to Lyon's old town to see something if you have time. What I... More

Second time I've stayed here - the location so convenient. When booking over the telephone I requested not to have one of the rooms over the tram, but when given the key realised it was - they were happy to change it (did have the note of my request). No dinner at hotel, but they suggested a restaurant in the... More
