This is a simple hotel, but very well located. Near shopping and transports. The breakfast is very diversified. It is possible to cook your own egg exactly as you like it. A hotel to return next time we are in Lyon.

Best thing about the hotel is the location, close to a good variety of restaurants and an easy walk to the Old Town area. My friend and I were given rooms overlooking an internal light shaft. Given that the rooms had very little natural light the decision to put up brown net curtains was particularly bizarre. My room was an... More

Good location - friendly, helpful staff - clean and comfortable rooms (on the smaller side)...would have appreciated room windows that opened...walking distance to most Lyon attractions...all in all, served our needs well (did leave a couple jackets in the closet, so do check upon departure)....Dan Patterson

Our first floor room was not spacious but adequate. As we were on a sightseeing trip we were out most of the day and ate out with the exception of breakfast. Our break coincided with some Euro Championship football matches so prices were inflated. Continental breakfast was very good. Wifi was useful and easy to access. The hotel is situated... More

Upon arrival the... More

As others wrote already it is a great location, just a short walk from the Metro and easy to get to all the shopping and restaurants on foot. However, I wanted to add that we found it very fast to check in and out, and that the hotel staff were very friendly and willing to spend time with us to... More

This 4 stars hotel is located on Lyon semi-island in the heart of shopping district and near most of Lyon tourist attraction. There are 2 subway stations nearby. Thus, hotel location is very good and convenient. Unfortunately, my room was a bit small but I was not staying in one of privilege rooms, which looked bigger. It was not cheap... More

This hotel is ideally located, within an easy walk of many of the things to do and see in Lyons, and also close to upscale shops and hundreds of restaurants. And for the sites not within walking distance, close to public transportation. So from the location perspective, it can't be beat. The staff was also helpful and friendly - for... More

A comfortable hotel with well appointed, albeit compact single rooms. The breakfast selection was very good, save the undercooked sausages. The fresh fruit juice made it home from home. Very friendly staff. The location is excellent for exploring the city, a good range of bars & restaurants are very close.
