We are here in Lyon to join a conference in the nearby conference centre. Our first choice was Hilton as we usually like to stay in Big chains. But since Hilton was fully booked, we then tried to Hotel de la Cite and we are both so happy with our choice!!! And surely will stay here again if we come back to Lyon!
The check in was good and smooth. We booked a Junior suite which the is big and very very clean. The bed is comfortable. No complain at all to the room.
The service here is just unbelievable! Honestly, I've been traveling around the world and usually have no expectation in the service in European hotels, esspecially France! I had very bad experience in many five star hotels in Paris so I have no expectation at all in Hotel De La Cite. But out of our surprise, all staff here are very very helpful, with a great smile all the time and never feel too much when we ask!!! It is really a big big plus to this hotel!
Only one down is the food in this hotel. The room service bad and the breakfast is very average. However, there are many Restuarant around here with just a few steps away, it didn't border us at all. I would recommend you to try the opposite Cite 33 if you going to stay here.
The locate is great if you attend conference here but is a big out of the city. However, you can easily take bus C1/C5 to reach the city centre. There is a big park right next to the hotel! We just rent a bike and ride around the park which is beautiful!
One more, they offer free Wifi in the hotel which is also fast and stable. So I really think if you are attending conference in the area, Hotel De la cite is a great choice!
