The staff and owner of this hotel could not have been more friendly, halpful and welcoming. The hotelo is situated very close to the Gare Perrache, and is an excellent spot to visit Lyon on foot comfortably. Back at the hotelo after a long day, a cup of tea was a welcome that was truely appreciated. So much so that... More

Stayed here one night on our return home from Nice. Olivier couldn't have been more helpful and our room was nicely decorated though I would agree with a previous comment about the shower area - a shower mat and perhaps a hand rail could avoid any risk of guests slipping getting out. The parking was good value for Lyon -... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and although the room was quite small, it was clean and modern. The shower was also powerful, although there was no shower curtain so the bathroom floor ended up being soaking. Olivier, the owner was really helpful and friendly - he pointed us in the direction of some good spots around Lyon... More

We booked this hotel based on the good recommendations, and the fact that it was both central and affordable. Upon arrival we were greeted by the super friendly manager, who also showed us where to park our car (we booked this in advance, and it turned out that the hotel has some parking places in a basement garage next to...

This small hotel has an enormous amount going for it - especially the host, M. Olivier Maisonnasse, Manager and Owner. He is without doubt the stand-out host we have ever come across in all our travels. He greets all his customers cheerfully, checks on your day, provides recommendations, assistance and advice and does so with genuine interest in ensuring the... More

Excellent place to explore Lyon. Several excellent restaurants in walking distance. Next to the hotel are a velo rental station and the tram station. Rooms are small but quiet and AC helps to cool down. TV with several programs. Very good breakfast with cereals, yoghurt, ham & cheese. However the difference to other places are the friendly owner and staff... More

This is a 2 star hotel but with the enthusiastic greeting and help of the owner, Olivier, it rates 5 stars. The rooms are small but have all that you need. Beds are comfortable and there is air conditioning! And I feel certain if there was anything else you needed Olivier would try his best to provide. The hotel is... More

The 'Hotelo' is a nice old building, right in the centre of Lyon. Parking is possible in the vicinity.. The rooms are rather small (nr 8) and nice. The staff was outstanding in helping us getting around the city. Good english explanation and really interested. Breakfast very, very good.. generous and nice quality, good products.

We had a wonderful stay in Lyon at the Hotelo and feel so blessed to have found this gem based on the comments of other TripAdvisor reviewers. It is very well located, just on the other side of the parking garage and road from the Lyon Perrache station. To get to the hotel exit the station, walk down the stairs... More
