“Clean, quiet room. Excellent location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Stayed for 4 nights.

Location:
Near to Bellcour. Centrally located. You can walk to most major sights. Lots of restaurant and shopping near the hotel. Close to Metro station. Love the location. You can't go wrong with this location in Lyon.

Room:
We were given a small room at first. Can't open the wardrobe door or pull out the chair at the study table after placing our 2 big lugguage on the floor. My lugguage is too big to be placed on the small wooden lugguage stand. It dropped twice from the stand.

After that, the gentleman who checked us in was very kind to move us to a slightly bigger room. We had the corner room with lots of windows. Room size was so much better than the previous room. The room was clean, quiet and bright. I enjoyed my stay.

Service:
Good service- The gentleman who checked us in was really understanding and friendly.

Poor service- When we actually need to make a reservation for a highly rated restaurant in tripadvisor, we were told by a lady staff on duty at the check-in counter that reservation is not necessary. We believed her and thought that she knows best. But it was a mistake. The restaurant was full and we didn't manage to eat there.

I could have rated the service very good if not for the above incident.

Overall, the hotel is still a good choice for its location and clean room.

Triple room was very spacious and although it didn't matter to us, as we were on a business trip and out all day, the room looked out onto the fire escape.
Very Quiet though as no street noise and black out curtains. Two elevators so you were never waiting around. Beds very comfortable and clean. Toilet seperate from shower and wash basin so handy for three people sharing.

I stayed for two nights on a business trip and it was comfortable and functional. The staff were pleasant, but it was a small hotel, rooms were smaller than I would have expected for the cost and the shower was underpowered. A good standard hotel if a little uninspiring.

The title sums it up really. The rooms are a bit small but they have sat T.V for English news etc. You have to park in a public underground car park which can be a bit of a nuisance. Over all a good basic hotel

I recently stayed here whilst at a conference in Lyon at the Centre de Congrès. It was either a €15 taxi fare or with public transport 2 tram trips away. It is right in the middle of a shopping area and was only a 10 minute walk to the Old Lyon area. The breakfast was great - scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes lyonnaise, breads, cold meats, cheeses, croissants and other French pastries, cereals and yoghurts. The coffee was ok but Starbucks is better! The restaurant across the road was good, although they dont speak very much Englis and the staff recommended some other good eating places. The staff are very helpful and spoke English which was great. My room was a good size on the second floor and I could even see the Rhone river. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Overall the Mecure Lyon Plaza Republique is a good hotel conveniently close to the Rhone river on the West side midway between Gare Part-Dieu and Gare de Perrache. Very close to Metro station Cordeliers, enormous amount of modern shops along the rue de Republique. We received good service from the front desk and housekeeping. The room was quite large for European standards, allowing 3 persons in a room. Large King size bed and a sofabed. The one window in the room opens and faces the outside staircase, thus no view. Room was quiet from the outside noise with the exception of the morning construction at the adjacent building. Did not utilize morning breakfast at 17.5 Euros per person. Just a warning, early breakfast in the area is limited to coffee, tea and pastries. If you are looking for cereal, juice, coffee, tea and pastries then I recommend the morning breakfast. I would stay at this hotel again if in the area.
