We checked in at this hotel 15th of June 2016. The receptionist was really friendly and helped us with all our questions. We was staying for 5 nights so it was really good to have a room towards the backyard. The room was clean, normal sized, nice bathroom and good WiFi. We were going to try the restaurant but that...

I stayed here recently as it was recommended by the conference arranger. It's not situated close to any of the major tourist environments in Lyon, but the Gorge de Loup metro station is a 5-minute walk away. This Best Western hotel is average in every respect, but I slept very well as the hotel is in a quiet back street....

Very convenient location, either one or two stops on the metro to the centre of Lyon, very easy to negotiate and great value. We had dinner in the restaurant on the first night which was lovely and breakfast was fabulous with everything you could want...very enjoyable stay.
