Rooms were small but extremely stylish and comfortable with many thoughtful touches. Hotel is in a great location, close to many bars, restaurants and shops, and within walking distance of Lyon old town. Would definitely return for a long weekend.
Nice room (although not totally clean) and bath room for a good price (and OK space for extra bed). Very well situated for the centre and easy to get on the highway. Very good price for lodging and also reasonable price for parking. What could have been better was communication. Despite it being written that there would be no deposit, the entire price of the booking was blocked - and then one additional night. When we mentioned it when paying the bill, the staff member had no idea why. Would be nice if the hotel informed about such things. Hotel recommended.
Our room was small, but very nice. The bed was very good and there was the very nice bathroom. The staff was helpful. Breakfast (charge) is a treat here, the quality is good. We used the hotels parking which off street and easy access into the hotel. It is quiet and conveniently located.
The Hotel is centrally situated just outside the Old City with easy access via public transport, Metro (Underground) Trams and buses within easy walking distance. The room my wife and I occupied was on the fifth floor at the front of the building over looking the Rue de Seze with a good flow of one way traffic, I must add that there was no noise polution to disturb a very comfortable night's sleep. In the morning we were able to enjoy a very continental breakfast, served with a range of freshly squeezed orange juice and other fruit drinks from self service jars. Scrambled eggs, yes scrambled eggs and sausages or if you preferred a lovely range of cold meats, cereals, yogurts and needless to say fresh breakfast pastries and bread all washed down with your choice of teas or coffees. You are spoilt for choice where to eat at night. Opposite the hotel we treated ourselves to a wonderful Lyon foodie experience at the Jean Moulin Restaurant. I'll write a further review about the restaurant safe to say worth a visit. Further down the Rue de Seze another excellent I'm not too sure of the name but 'Gout' (Taste) is in the name. Overall experience of the hotel, in my view excellent.…
Although our room was on the 1st floor facing the street, it was very quiet. Hotel feels like it's been re-furbished recently. Very comfortable bed and a very effective shower. Great breakfast constantly topped up. We were there for a mini-break but the hotel is also used by business guests. Hotel is about 30 mins walk from the old town and the Place Bellecour but the walk is flat. Maybe 10 minutes from the right bank of the Rhone but the hotel is easy to find and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. Ther hotel does have a bar but we didn't see it being used.
