I stayed for one night as in Lyon for the European Rugby Final, booked a twin room and was put on the 7th floor. Friendly welcome in relatively spacious (by French standards) lobby. Room was clean and a good size. Separate toilet and bathroom with toiletries. Only negative would be the handheld shower but not a huge issue. Modern flat... More

We booked three days after our team Saracens won their semifinal of the European Championship and were drawn to play the final against Racing 92 of Paris and we were hard pushed to find a hotel near the Parc Olimpique in Lyon where the game was played. We booked The Hotel Ariana and found it easily with sat nav having... More

This is NOT a hotel I'd go back to. It is close to underground, has WIFI and air conditioning and the staff was nice. Location was far from historic district, so the public transportation was a life-saver. Schlep back via subway and what have you got? A room that does not make you happy - bad smells, no view, little... More

I stayed here for a week in June, on a business trip to Lyon. The location is good, the nearest metro (subway) station (Gratte Ciel) is a two-minute walk, and the train station, Lyon Part-Dieu, can be reached in about 15 minutes with the metro. Many small bars and cafés in the vicinity, and also the famous park (Parc de... More

This place was absolutely appalling. It was DEFINITELY not a three star - questionable as to whether it would even be a two star. The hotel is, overall, old and dirty and the service is exceptionally unhelpful. The room was much too hot to sleep, and if you opened the window, it was much too loud. When I went downstairs...

This hotel is very small, old and dirty. The staff is not very friendly. There were small bugs in the bathtub and sink and bed. There is no restaurant or lounge. Breakfast was mediocre. Food and shopping nearby was not so bad.
