Room size was ok, bed was only a queen at most. WiFi did not work well at all. Very disappointed in quality of WiFi. Could not never download anything attached to emails and they took forever. Air conditioning was a problem. You could lower temperature but it was only for maximum of 4 hours and then would change back to... More

This was one of two hotels I stayed at in Lyon. It is very convenient for the main Lyon rail station and surrounded by shops and restaurants. The hotel had a very hostel-like feel. The building may not even have been designed as a hotel. Entry form the street was into a small entryway, with an elevator up to reception,... More

We were in Lyon for the Rugby European Finals and booked on line. This is a typical city hotel, a lift from the street level to reception level. First view is water damage to the ceiling in one corner and tired decorations. Staff great, helpful, took in and stored our bags as we were early; multi lingual and filled in... More

The Athena is a typical business hotel. It is very well located at the Part Dieu - mainline railway station, link to airport, shopping mall with its many fast food places. The rooms are ok, a bit threadbare and in need of some refurb but the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very good though. Lobby and bar area... More

We passed one night in the Hotel. The room is not comfortable. It is OK for one night but I did not like it. Also, the entrance of the hotel is very strange. You have to take a lift to find the reception in other level!!!

This hotel is very convenient for travellers who arrive or leave Lyon from Gare Part Dieu. It is situated beside the forecourt to the the central railway station. We stayed for one night in August arriving by train and left the following morning for the airport. Staff at the front desk were very helpful. They allowed my wife to make... More

Very convenient for Part Dieu station, but that's about it. Room OK, Wifi temperamental. Reception staff bored and uninterested in the guests. Breakfast (which I did not take) required a ticket to be obtained in advance from reception - a procedure which I have never met elsewhere which says "we don't trust our guests". No element of pleasure in a... More

Some staff ok, others not. A carpet you would not wish to walk on in bare feet. The blanket on the bed was so filthy I took it off immediately. The bath was very high and presented a challenge for an older person. The location was excellent. The fact that I only booked for one night was a bonus.. The... More

This hotel is cheap and you get what you pay for. No amenities in the room and the parking situation is dismal. It is located in the Lyon's city center and they brag on having a garage to park in but don't offer how you are supposed to know where the garage is nor how to get into it. We... More
