If you are looking for an affordeable place to stay, you can stay at B&B hotel Gambetta. It's only 20min straight to the city center (or 2 minutes from the subway, stop Garibaldi). Very basic but all you need is there. Be prepared: the bed is a wooden plank with a matress on it. Toilet is separate from the bathroom... More

Ok, the location is certainly great… right in the heart of the “students” town. Room size is also good for a mid-town property. Air-conditionned and quiet with the window closed. There is one unfortunate problem: it’s the internet. It’s seems to work fine only in the lobby of the hotel… I don’t know what was the issue at my visit... More

It's 20 minutes (on foot) far from both la Gare Part Dieu and the center and this is a good point. Hotels close to the station or the rivers may be noisy. This is peaceful and nice. I found everything I needed. Staff is nice. Breakfast good. I would use this hotel again.

This hotel was good and up to its price. I was greeted professionally and politely by the clerk. I was in a big room with a nice sunny view of the courtyard, thanks to a big window. The bathroom was impeccable, though in my opinion plastic glasses is a lazy trash generating alternative. The matress was stiff, but it was... More

However, there is nothing in the room, no safe, no kettle , no hairdryer ,no amenities and NO hand soap at all at the sink. The only body/shampoo dispenser... More

The hotel was a 20-30 minute walk from Lyon Part Dieu. The receptionists were both helpful at check in and out. But reception closed at ten and then you would have to use a code to get in. The room was ok. It smelled like smoke when we walked in, even though it was a non-smoking room as we had... More

This place was conveniently located within walking distance to public transport and to the city's major sites. The rooms are spacious and clean, the staff are very helpful, and the breakfast buffet was a pleasant surprise.

Surprised with how large the air-conditioned room was, we had top floor and this had a opening full height windows and balcony. Secure underground parking is limited so book ahead for that. Smoking rooms available. I used nearby underground for the 3 stops to the city center - cheap, easy and safe. The best B & B Hotel I have... More
