They serve us free tasting of wine with snacks in the evening. The breakfast is good. One regrettable point is that the basin for washing my face is a little too small. Other than that, the hotel was good.

Hotel is very well located near Metro and good local restaurants. Especially liked the 6-8pm drinks and chance to try some local specialties as well as meet other travellers. Breakfast is also tasty and generous. Katrine and Sebastien were very helpful in ensuring room had twin beds and in providing information and recommendations for enjoying their city.

This newly refurbished hotel is ideal for a short break holiday to Lyon, to use a base to sample the 100's of restaurants in Lyon. The staff (All (English speaking) were friendly, helpful, attentive, whilst the bedrooms had all that's required for a short break. Nothing was wrong with the bedroom, but it was smallish, small wardrobe, shower only (... More
