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

We spent just one night in Hotelo and we were very satisfied. First of all the staff was very nice and helpful. As we checked in early, we couldn't go into the room right away. We left our car right next to the hotel while we got our luggage into the lobby, then drove the car into the private parking... More

After fifteen away from the city, our family needed a centrally located spot for one night - we found a gem! We reserved the family room and it had everything we needed for a one night stop, including a delicious breakfast. Everything about this hotel update speaks to great style and attention to detail. I hope it won't be another... More

Olivier singlehandedly demonstrates how service can make a 2 star hotel feel like a 4-5 star stay. The many chats we had with him made us feel welcomed to the city. The hotel has all the basic amenities one requires and is located a short walk from the old town and very close to the main station. Wifi was strong,... More

We had two rooms for two nights at the Hotelo. It was perfect for us - quiet, cute, within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go. The rooms are small, but the beds comfortable. The few small things that the rooms were lacking were more than made up for by the fantastic staff, especially Olivier. He had so many... More

This hotel is quite conveniently located near the downtown on Presqu'il. Close to the Rhone - we had a lovely bottle of wine on its banks. We found it to be very friendly and the staff very helpful. Quite affordable and quiet. Rooms were small but very well appointed. Nice bathrooms. Very clean. Most important - each room has a... More
