Loved the clean, modern, simple design. Nothing unnecessary, like being on a ship.
Didn't like the awkward layout of the room, orange walls, aircon that didn't seem to work very well, if at all, internet with weak signal, cleaning ladies who didn't understand what a "do not disturb" sign meant and would walk into our room.
Loved the sweet, good looking desk staff, who were always very helpful and kind. One even gave us a kettle one night when my stomach was upset (all that fromage!) and I needed some tea. They and the design redeemed the place for me.
Location was good. You do have to walk through a tunnel to get to the main part of Lyon, but it felt pretty safe. The hotel is also in a less-touristed part of Lyon and I liked being a little off the beaten path. It's also convenient if you are going to rent a car and need to get on the autoroute. I didn't mind being on the autoroute so much, but since the aircon wasn't working it was very hot and we couldn't open the windows for too long because of the noise and the bugs that would come in.
If you were to stay here, I'd avoid it in summer and ask for a room at the back - I wish we switched our room, our stay would have been much more enjoyable.
