We were in Lyon for five of the hottest days and nights of the year. One day it hit 40C and was never lower than 38. We loved the city and the exotic weather. Nights, it goes without saying, in a hotel that does not currently offer airconditioning were very warm indeed, even with windows wide open. But we knew the score before booking and are well used to centre of city noise throughout the night. It was great to have breakfast included. This was a lot better than anticipated. The buffet selection did lack the offer of fresh fruit, but had everything else. We were on the fifth floor and in cooler weather would have used the stairs going up as well as down, but made more use of the lift ( a cosy 2 max persons affair) more than we would normally.
All the front desk staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. A bulb in one the bedside lamps was not working when we arrived. We left a note in the room and it was changed. Our key card had been incorrectly programmed and on our second night I could not gain entrance to the room. I often find these entry systems unresponsive and problematic but eventually had to take the lift down to the service desk to explain the issue. The mistake was explained and apologised for and of course corrected.
We had no more issues in the course of a most enjoyable and memorable visit. The location of the hotel could not have been better.
