“Exactly what we were looking for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We stayed here twice in a 1-week span - once before departing France for a quick visit to Barcelona; then upon returning before a train ride to Tours the next morning. Both times the hotel delivered perfectly on its purpose.

The first visit was me and my nearly 18-year-old son. The tiny room was exactly what we expected, so it seemed perfectly adequate (i.e., people accustomed to and expecting a larger, American-sized room might feel cramped). The unusual bunkbed arrangement was comfortable, and we could not hear even the tiniest sound from anywhere, so we slept great.

We had a mid-morning flight the next day, and the hotel's location at the train station where the Rhone Express train to the airport is located was very convenient.

The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Each staff member wears a nametag indicating which languages they speak, so if you are not comfortable speaking French, they can help you. Since we spoke some French (and enjoy trying to communicate in a country's native language), they helped us using French, but spoke especially clearly just for us.

When we returned a week later upon returning from Barcelona, we also had my wife with us. She was amused by the tiny room, but expressed the same satisfaction with the hotel.

We did eat the breakfast offered by the hotel. It was very good and very reasonably priced compared to most hotels.

The only downside of our visit (which has nothing to do with the hotel) was our inability to find a restaurant for dinner with decent food and reasonable prices. We should have asked the front desk staff for advice, as I'm certain they would have steered us to a good choice.

This is a perfect hotel for someone connecting to travel through the train station and/or airport.

Stayed in.this hotel when visiting lyon. Could not fault the location its directly opposite the rhone express tram which brings you from the airport to the city centre. Its also a short stroll to the main station and the metro. Room is clean and.comfortable, no complaints especially given the reasonable rate.

After coming from Paris and its prices finding this hotel was a relief. Front desk personnel were friendly and spoke English and Spanish. The breakfast buffet was cheap and with good selection of food and beverages. The hotel is next to the train station where you can take the metro to the touristic areas and very close to the Part Dieu mall. There you can find a Carrefour which sells good food for cheap prices.

Lovely new hotel, all staff very helpful especially the breakfast team who were fabulous. Location perfect-only yards from the station but perfectly quiet. Bed fine but didn't like the design of the pillows, rather uncomfortable for my liking. Only criticism is lack of directions on the website! There is a Tram that takes you direct from the Airport to the hotel, a seamless journey BUT why is it not advertised on the website? Overall best hotel I have stayed in for a long time.

The hotel was great - clean, secure and in an great convenient location
Only problem was getting there by car. I use the GPS throughout my travels in France. I rely on the GPS coordinates provided by the hotel, to lead me with pin-point accuracy. I have not been disappointed in the other hotels, but this one led me in circles.
Please update the hotels' coordinates

This hotel is just next to Lyon part dieu station. There are two main exits for the train station, one of them heading to the metro station entrance (with galaries Lafayette across the road). Take the other exit to locate the hotel. It is a 5 minutes walk on the right side of the station. The logo is in green unlike ibis logo which is in red. Checking in was smooth and staff are friendly/helpful. The room is small but clean. Only complain is that there is no where to hang your clothes or towel in the bathroom which is quite inconvenient. Furthermore, there is no door knob for the bathroom but a round hole on the door for opening and closing the door. This is kinda weird if you are sharing the room with your friends as they could see you shower through the hole! The design is weird and hopefully something could be done about it. Otherwise, this hotel is a good choice if you are visiting Lyon and is travelling on budget.

We picked this hotel because of its location - its right around the corner of Part-Dieu station within 3 minutes of walking. The room was very clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. However in terms of value - I would pay $20-$30 more per night to stay in Mecure Hotel next door (which is part of Accord Group too). Mecure was sold out for the dates I was in Lyon. There was amenities like kettle and hairdryer which I think every hotel shouldhave which unfortunately this hotel does not have and I would pay little extra $ to have that.
