The location is just perfect if one's main focus is Vieux Lyon, since the 'school' is at the northern end of the main cobbled thoroughfare through the old town. The Collège is a haven to return to after a day spent exploring the tiny passageways known as 'traboules' that interconnect many of the old stone houses in this picturesque part of town. The breakfast is lavish: real OJ, a selection of yoghurts, cheese and ham, coffee & tea - served in slim vacuum flasks - and delicious French bread. Sitting at desks may not be everyone's idea of comfort, but it's fun. We had room 75 on the 7th floor. It's bright, well lit and offers fabulous views up to the Basilica and over the roofs of the old town. The bathroom also has a great view, but the oversized would fit it tricky to manoeuvre in it. The shower is excellent. It's not a luxury hotel, but then it doesn't claim to be one. The staff are helpful and friendly. It's certainly a place you'll think back to with affection if you can go along with the concept.
