This was an excellent choice for us as we had a fridge, microwave and two ring electric hob. This meant we self catered breakfast and a light evening meal. We ate out for lunches. We asked for a room away from the front and it was very quiet. It was a 5 minute walk to Perrache station and a tram ran along the road at the front, so it was very easy to get around the whole of Lyon. You can buy a carnet for the trains and trams at the Perrache Metro interchange. A 10 minute stroll to the right is a big new centre with hypermarket, shops and a good choice of modern restaurants.
The only rather odd thing was that you have to ask for the cupboard containing crockery and cutlery to be unlocked! We had been forewarned about no washing up things, so took a j cloth and tea towel and small container of liquid + salt and pepper. But worth it for the saving - breakfasts in the hotel were 10 euros per person, which equates to quite a few nice lunches!
The staff were smart and friendly and spoke perfectly good English. There are ATM's close by.
The a/c wasn't on but it wasn't hot enough at night to bother us,and because we put the shutters down, we left the window open for fresh air.
The beds were comfy and everything worked as it should. So long as you don't want a bar or other big hotel facilities, I recommend this as a modern, clean and convenient base.
The only thing I would say is that the area immediately round the station would be not very salubrious at night, as in any city really.
