The reviews for this hotel were quite good, so we booked a room for 2 nights in Hotel du Simplon for a city trip to Lyon. We were disappointed. The room was very loud and we could hear everything from the street and the bad room was small. The breakfast room was a mess: In additionation to bad coffee there... More

We stayed in this hotel for one week and were very comfortable. It is a lovely place, with lots of individual charm. We had a twin room, not large, but enough space and with good storage and a good sized shower room. It was well decorated, spotless and towels were changed several times during our stay. The staff are all... More

We picked this hotel due to its central location and low price, and were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. The hotel is charming, decorated in a 1920's style, with very helpful staff and quiet rooms. Rooms were small but plenty of storage space and comfy beds, no issues at all. Again, a stand out for the price paid... More

The hotel offers an excellent value for money. It is a two stars hotel; do not expect nothing special. Though simple, the room was clean, the reception people were helpful and friendly, and the location is very convenient. It is very close to the Perrache Station and in a walking-distance from the main touristic area. Anda the internet worked just... More

Great location near one of the main stations, nice interesting local area, very handy for public transport. Quiet, which meant I could finish off work in the room. Very comfortable bed, modern bathroom where everything worked, very helpful staff. We don't eat breakfast so can't comment but it sounded a lot better than the usual chain hotel breakfasts. Interesting, independent... More

Stayed 3 nights, great location to explore Lyon on foot. Lovely simple breakfast, homemade jams a real treat, great coffee. Price paid per room, breakfast extra, but worth the money, sets you up for the day, car park nearby extra.

Two friends and I spent two nights in this hotel while exploring Lyon and we found that it was a great base location - easy to access transport. Budget friendly. Clean and comfy rooms. Water pressure in shower wasn't great. There was a large mirror in the room, helpful for three traveling girls. Overall great little place for a couple... More

This hotel has compact rooms but if you are aware of that there should be no surprise. The room was very clean and quiet at night time. It is a very short walk to one of the main train stations and a minute to a metro. This hotel has lots of nice restaurants in the vicinity and is also close... More
