College/school vintage theme works well. Easy to be in. Friendly helpful concierge. Great value. Lovely aspect over the city from our room 22, which had its own balcony leading on to the communal raised terrace. Room was clean and functional. Bathroom heats separately, with quiet door and lightswitch - v useful if you get up in the night. They do...

We only stayed one night at the College Hotel and found it clean, quiet, comfortable. It is as others have already said very convenient to the oldest sections of town. Be sure to take the breakfast in the dining room (hall) as there are NO OTHER choices within walking distance. I wanted only a pastry and coffee for breakfast so...

Thoroughly recommend this place in the old town, indeed it's hard to fault. Very friendly service and great breakfast. Rooms small but with all that's required including some with balconies. Lovely terrace. Lyon too a gem, amazing food in the real bouchons. Alison and Seamus.

If you plan to stay in historic Vieux Lyon, College Hotel is a great choice! It's location is perfect for exploring the old streets, buildings, historic sites and Gallo-Roman museum. Great choice of restaurants, close to the bus, metro etc and near brides to walk over to other Lyon neighborhoods. The breakfast - in a cute schoolroom setting - is...

Liked the concept of quirky hotel but probably serves me right for not staying in a chain hotel with basic necessities like a manager who acknowledges and supports guests when they have been robbed and gives information about a so called safe behind reception ? Like others before me I stayed in this hotel in the summer and had hundreds...

Interesting place with themed school things. Big hooks, lockers, desks all from school buildings. Clean and with air conditioningoning. A bit quirky. Book your carpark space in advance €18 a night. Nice place next door for breakfast. On the doorstep of the old town. Fooderies everywhere!

Very well located hotel, just a few minutes away from City hall. I loved the terrace, the beautifully decorated dining room and the very cosy and comfy lounge. Bedrooms are ok, nothing fancy, don't expect anything special, just a place to sleep. It is a very clean and quiet hotel that serves very good breakfast. Good value for money.

Very nice and clean. Good design sense. Very convenient. The staff are friendly and we're helpful to give us the power adapter for our iPhone and laptop. The complimentary water and drinks are greatly appreciated. It would be better if there are diet cokes or coke zeros in addition to coke.

It was like staying in a hospital bed or maybe a mental hospital in term of a atmospher. All white and totally bare boned. I can't wait to check out. The area is great. But I could never recommend this hotel. I booked it on Hotwire and was mislead by the 90 percent approval rating. Very fishy.
