Perfect small hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Three of us shared one room for one night and it was perfect. The place is so secure and safe. They lock down the hotel after 10pm and you just have to buzz to get in. This place is so safe that we forgot to close our door, we left our door...

Nice hotel, central to train worth the price. Very helpful staff although you have to always stop in lobby via elevator, good for security a little bit of a hassle if you're looking to get home quickly.

It was a bit hard to find but I enjoyed my stay at this hotel the room was big, the bathroom was big enough as well. The bed was very comfortable and the tv was definitely big enough. There is also a small fridge on the hallway outside the rooms with free water available which is a lovely gesture.

The Alexandra has apparently recently been renovated. Everything is very tastefully done. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Very well situated if going out on foot. Parking is limited however so we had to park some distance away. That said we could offload baggage at the door as cars are tolerated on the pedestrian street. Nearby there are some good...

I thought this would be a four star hotel, but absolutely not Staff is ver helpful. Very nicely located. But rooms are extremely small. Wardrobes and closets are not big at all. This hotel may get maximum two or three stars.

Dear sir, We are sorry if your hotel didn’t satisfy you and it seemed too touristic. We always try to offer quality services but your ELEGANCE room was too small for your weekend and you didn’t feel comfortable in your room. We are very sorry for this bad experience. We usually suggest to our guests to reserve a PRIVILEGE room...

The hotel, although convenient for central Lyon, was confusingly difficult to find as the entrance (on the first floor) and the small 8-space garage are accessed via the busy pedestrianised rue Victor Hugo. We had chosen a "chambre elegance" and I am glad that we did, because I cannot imagine how we would have coped with a smaller room. This...

We arrived at the Hotel Alexandra after a long day at work, a delayed flight and endless trip through the ongoing works at Lyon airport. So how nice to be welcomed by a friendly man on reception. He phoned around three restaurants (all closed) before finding us an open brasserie. And excellent it was! Next morning we ate fantastic freshly...
