This relatively small hotel (8 rooms on our floor) had pleasant mid-size rooms in the style of France. Everything was very clean. The hotel was located a five minute walk from the Foch metro station. It was a good place to say to go to a conference at the Palais de Congres convention center (about 15 min away by the number 4 bus) while keeping a little distance from it. Our room (#20) faced an interior courtyard and was quiet at night. The hotel's elevator was the right size for 2 to 4 people. The bathroom and facilities were stylish and modern, though without the intensely bright lighting of American style hotels. The hotel's neighborhood had upscale stores on the street level and residences in the 5 or 6 levels above. It seemed to my wife and me to be an attractive and seemingly safe environment to enjoy walking around in the afternoons and early evening, especially along Franklin Roosevelt avenue (one block away), which has many upscale shops as well as cafes extending across the sidwalk into the street. Restaurants at all levels from gourmet to street hot-dogs are close by. The outstanding aspect of the hotel itself was its staff, who helped us immensely to deal with a package held up in customs, to solve some problems getting our chargers pluged in, to get various taxis, and who were unfailingly friendly every time we came in or out. While several of the staff and people in the neighborhood spoke only French, some spoke English well, and in any event there was no language barrier. Breakfast in the morning cost 12 Euro extra per room and was well worth it -- assorted bread, jam, pastries, cereal, fruit in a nice room. There is a central bar for late night drinks, which also serves as a good place to sit and talk. This hotel is not in the tourist district downtown, but that district is only 3 stops away on the metro, which was close enough.
When we go back to Lyon (a very nice city), I am definitely going back to this hotel. We loved it.
