Last minute booking due to all other hotels in Lyon being booked due to the Euro's. Set in an urban area and the view from the room is not great, but pleasantly surprised with room and hotel. A bit difficult to find, but had researched on google maps and street view which helped. Tram stop around corner, through park. Cheap... More

On the plus side, large clean rooms, comfortable beds, powerful shower, fridge, safe, free and fast WiFi, helpful staff on reception, and enough power points. On the negative side, its location is unattractive and quite isolated, and close to a school and playground (so very noisy), and the breakfast is very disappointing (good coffee, but stale bread). There are two... More

I stayed here due to the close proximity to the congress centre, and am happy to have done so - reaching the congress centre involves a very pleasant 10-15 minute walk through the park, with no need for additional transportation. My room was clean and comfortable. 15 Euros for breakfast - reasonable. I had a simple but very tasty meal... More

We stayed here for 4 nights over the weekend to watch the Rugby Champions Cup, the Hotel is in a very urban area, high rise flats but lots of green areas.

I've stayed several times at Hotel des Congres in Lyon (Villeurbanne), from October 2015 to March 2016, and it has been always an excellent experience. Breakfast, rooms, beds and above all, the staff. They make their best to make you feel home away from home. Thus my rating.

This hotel comes up as 3 star hotel. I don't know how the hotel stars are taken in France. Surely you are not buying from market. No room service available. Breakfast is horrible. Do not take breakfast package with this hotel, apart from the small buffet nothing on. You can not request twin bed higher than 2nd floor. There is... More
