“Above expectations: good bed, decent breakfast, and that's it, and that's ok.”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

As always I mostly appreciate the core business of a hotel:
decent bed, clean bathroom, nice breakfast.

In almost all aspects this hotel exceeded expectations:
The bed: 90cm x 210!!! with blankets that royally cover you from head to toe: >2m long!
The bathroom: simply clean and functional = good for me.
Breakfast: very good value for money, for ~10 euro you get a good selection of drinks, pastries, cheeses and so on.

And don't expect much more. You can walk to a mall within 500m and that's about it. For business purposes very ok. If you just need a place for one night, you may as well go here. You can be sure to get a good nights rest.

It's a place out of town, from which to access Lyon and the surrounding countryside, which I rate pretty highly for "ballades". Decent bus service into Lyon or the centre of St Genis (a neat little market on Friday mornings), and I recommend the personnel, very friendly.
Ok, so it's a budget hotel, but as such it's clean, the rooms have been re-done since 059 visited, and no, there's no bacon and eggs for breakfast, unless asked for, but try the evening meals with their local wines and it's part of the reason one visits france anyway.
As for Lyon itself, after Paris, it's absolutely my favourite city for culture and diving down those traboules between streets. And eating, obviously.

Had to stay there on a business trip once. This is quite a poor place to stay. Rooms are old and in a bad shape, not very clean. Breakfast is no very good. Their wifi is poor. Not at all recommended. There are several much better places to stay close by.

Neatly presented, in a kind of Ikea/Ibis sort of style, the Kyriad does the job without any fuss.

Free parking round the back. Free wi-Fi (through a needlessly complex arrangement with Orange which requires a print out of a unique username/password). A perfectly good, minimalist breakfast - no bacon 'n eggs, no smoked salad, no omelette. Just pastries galore, boiled eggs, muesli, yoghurt, coffee, tea and reconstituted juices.

The room? Small, tidy, clean, bright, with a walk-in shower in the bathroom, TV, desk, tiny wardrobe, and a very comfortable bed.

Not a bad option really, if all you need is a room, a shower, a croissant and a coffee.

We stayed in this hotel in Lyon for 6 nights. The advantage is that it is one of the cheapest hotels in town with good facility and staying with high quality. There’s nothing to complain though we were worried that we could have paid a terrible price for a cheap hotel like this. Phew!

I have stayed at this hotel on an ad-hoc basis over the past ten or so years. I have seen the directors come and go,but the quality remains constant. We are not talking about a quality
hotel here, but we are talking about a presentable, comfortable hotel at budget prices. There is a restaurant in situ, that more times than not dishes up good quality grub! This of course is quite necessary, as it will it will require either a short cab ride or a long walk to the next village
to secure sustenance. The staff are most pleasent, and not at all precious. Also on offer is free wi-fi,although it is capped. If you arrive early enough and have the inclination there is a huge shopping mall,as our American friends would say, only ten minutes walk away. If your touring in this area, this place is ideal as it's out of Lyon, but not by much, as Lyon being Frances' second city it does get very,very busy on the roads!!

Room Tip: if your'e the same sex and book a twin room, don't bother as they are, mmmm, compact! just...

When you arrive late at night, and realize there was an error in the reservation date, the clerk announces that your credit card won't be charged...
The day after, another clerk charge you for the night
One month later, you realize that your credit card was charged twice... And the director refuses to reimburse the amount, in contradiction to what the clerk promised...
... I paid 240 EUR for a single night with at this hotel, they even did not offer any kind of compensation...
