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.
Maybe it’s because I loved visiting Lyon that I found this hotel so nice. We had a Junior Suite on the 6th floor. It’s newly renovated and had a great bathroom. After walking 22000 steps iI really loved soaking in a hot bath. The breakfast is typically Lyonaise. The coffee is really good and the crepes are wonderfully soft and scrumptious. The staff are always friendly and courteous. There is a Veleo bike station within minute of the hotel so very easy to get to the river.
We stayed here 2 nights in their 4 person family room. It was really just a double bed and a pull out couch. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was nice. The closet and amenities were nice too. The kids complained that the pull out couch was not comfortable (and they have a good frame of reference as they slept on many pull outs this summer). It was a bit cramped for 4 people but overall, still very pleasant. Breakfast was better than most. We found the staff to be kind and helpful. The location is nice and there are many restaurants nearby. However I think it’s a fancy neighborhood so many nearby restaurants were too swanky to just saunter in without a reservation, especially in our flip flops with kids. It’s about a 20+ min walk to the old town. Parking is available in a garage but luckily we stayed Sat and Sunday nights so we parked on the street for much less (overnights and Sundays are free). Overall we were quite pleased.…
