This hotel is part of the logis hotel chain of which we have not actually stayed in any hotels previously. We picked this hotel as it was convenient to the train station lyon perrache though we did find out later that alot of the trains end up leaving from part dieu. As far as location goes, the place is very convenient - close to the train station - literally next to it - no noise however and very quiet, also close to the metro/tram/bus stops as the train station is th hub for all this.

Rooms were clean and spacious for europe. Bathroom was standard, shower but no bath with toilet. sink was outside. there was a closet area (no safe), a desk, and free wi-fi. connection was normal (neither fast nor slow ..). Breakfast was served at 7.5 euros/person downstairs - we did not have it. there is a lift (elevator) as there are 4 floors to the place. The lobby is simple with a LCD screen tv. the rooms have a nice sized LCD TVs with about 18-20 channels - in HD, most were french, 2-3 english channels.

we liked the place, it served our needs. clean, convenient, and greatly priced. room rates were even cheaper on the wkends if you were around. lyon is a gem .. not visited as frequently but very convenient to a lot of places near the swiss border or further into the provence. it is also the food capital of france .

We visited lyon for a day, and he hadnt booked any hotels to stay so we were just looking around...First we asked at the Ibis hotel next to it but it was full so they suggested us Hotel Central. We were pleasantly surprised by the very very helpful, polite and nice girl at the reception, as well as the low prices for the brand new rooms. The room we had was pretty big and really good for the money...The sink from the bathroom though was outside the bathroom, and there was only one small window with not view at all...So it was kind of dark but there were sufficient lights..They also had free WiFi access which was awesome! Overall it was a Really really nice and cheap stay!

Hotel was a little hard to find (hint: it's next to Ibis Hotel south of Perrache station) but staff was friendly when we checked in. Unfortunately, a family of large spiders was already occupying my room so we quickly changed to another. Upon moving to the next room, we found that the shower gel holder was empty (and stayed empty for 2 days until we left it open for staff to see). Hotel looked clean but these incidents made me think maybe it wasn't as clean as it appeared. Otherwise, staff was friendly and very helpful, especially in helping us discover that parking was free on the street for the month of August. Not sure if I'd stay there again unless it was my only option.

I stayed in Hotel Central with my college age son and his best friend while touring around France for a month. It worked well because we had a family suite. The boys had their own room and tv to watch the World Cup and I had the large room to myself. We had to share the bathroom but we made it work without a lose of privacy. The hotel was very clean. The staff was helpful. The price was reasonable. Breakfast was convenient. The neighborhood seemed a bit edgy, lots of dodgy characters at the train station but we never encountered any problems and found easy parking on the street. We explored a lot of Lyon easily from this location, on foot and from the metro. Not a glamorous address but I recommend it for the practical traveler who desires cleanliness and ease of mobility. Really good restaurant next door, Brasserie Georges, a bit stuffy and conservative but good food. Lyon is full of great eating establishments for great prices. Enjoy.
