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

We stayed in Hotelo last weekend (22nd to 25th Jan 2016). Couple stay. The hotel is incredibly well located, 2 minutes (literally 2 minutes) walk to Perrache station, 10 minute walk to Place Bellecour, etc. The hotel has 2 floors. Rooms are small but well distributed so you will not feel "trapped". A suggestion, if you can, get a room... More
