This is a small hotel right in the middle of things, and is also a bar- there was a birthday party into the small hours one night ie if you want a quiet place to sleep, this is not for you. The decor is a delightful collection of all sorts of things the owners have bought at flea markets over... More

The Boulevardier looks like what you could call a budget hotel but it has excellent (small) rooms in the center of the Lyon at a reasonable price. The rooms that my friends and I stayed in were all recently refurbished with modern bathrooms and beds (the only things I really care about in a short-stay city hotel). There is not... More

This was definitely a special place, and I am glad we stayed here, but it wasn't perfect. The first major issue was when I arrived with my heavy bag, that I had to push up 3 flights of incredibly narrow twisted stairs, in the partial dark (as we could never figure out how to turn the lights on), by myself...

Plenty of character in this very old building with modernised rooms. Cedric the owner has eclectic taste in decorations, particularly in the bar. Don't expect the usual services like a full time reception or swank toiletries but good WiFi, clean rooms and great location awaits. Easy to find as its alongside an equally old St Nizier church. Be prepared to... More

Le Boulevardier is a French hôtel in the best sense. It is not your modern, slick monolith, it has character and atmosphere and makes the best of the centuries old building. It is in a wonderful location for exploring the city, opposite the St Nizier church, with a number of small squares, cafes and restaurants close by and supermarkets around... More

The room was lovely (the walls are from the 15th century!) and the bathroom was very modern and nice. There was no parking, but there were many (expensive) public lots nearby. The location is incredible (right on the peninsula!) and our room had a view of Saint-Nizier, which is across the street from the hotel. Lugging our large bags up... More

Booked here on Lonely Planet recommendation. Apart from its excellent location in the centre of Lyon between the Rhone and Saone rivers, I can't say much else. No parking available which was a problem as we had a car. The front bar, when you can get breakfast, better elsewhere, is quirky as is the stair case in the hotel. Our... More

Let me start by saying - the "property" is not terrible, but our experience was. Our room was small, clean, and minimal, but what I expected for 69 euros. The bathroom was recently renovated and very nice. The street was very noisy and since there was no A/C, we left the window open which didn't make for a restful night's... More
