There were a lot of things right about this hotel: friendly staff (a welcome drink at 12:30 am? Nice touch, who cares if it's just a diet coke!); a great location in the heart of the city with shops restaurants and attractions all easily within walking distance; light, comfortable rooms with large windows looking out on a classic lyonnaise street, bustling, but at this time of year (october) not too noisy. We didn't eat there, but a nice looking brasserie next door offered room delivery at all hours. With (a slightly disappointing) breakfast included it was pretty good value too.
The problems for us came when they had a power outage. The staff weren't very helpful in an unusual situation, first not communicating effectively, then sending us without further aid to a nearby hotel which was of considerably lower standard.
All in all however the advantage of a good location can't be underestimated and tips this mixed experience towards the positive side.
