“Clean and Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We needed a bed for the night as we were at a conference in Lyon and could not find accomadation in Lyon. The rooms and hotel was spotless. The beds comfortable and just loved the quilt, something that so many hotels in France do not have, I hate blankets. In all this hotel offers great value for money and the Breakfast is worth every penny and the receptionist is friendly and welcoming. Next time I have to go to Lyon, we will stay here. Thank you.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

Spartan but clean, thin hard bed, one pillow each, skimpy pretty much on everything. It is not manned 24 hours, you can get in using a kiosk if you remember your confirmation no. and use the card you booked with. Secure parking, remember your room code as you will need it to unlock the gate if you need to get out early or come in late. Price was 47 Eur for one night, good value but unable to sleep much due to the extremely hard bed and no AC. Would not stay here again.

This hotel is out of the city but we chose it for the secure parking which was free. The room was clean & adequate but extremely hard mattresses - I had to fold the doona to sleep on as the bed was so hard.
It is within easy walking distance to the bus to the city centre & also to a shopping centre for evening meals and/or shopping requirements.
Staff were very helpful & pleasant & breakfast was sufficient to start the day.

This hotel is located near the autoroute, but far enough away to not be disturbed by the noise. It is an ideal midway stop when travelling in east-west direction in France. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and the breakfast a bit better than one normally get at these no frills hotels.
