I'm not sure why anybody would complain about this place. The innkeeper was incredibly friendly, took the time to patiently explain how best to optimize the 28 hours we were there, and created a simple, but wholesome breakfast for my wife and me.
My one complaint was that we had a hard time picking up wifi downstairs, but it's not like I'll ever complain about not being able to check my email. it was a welcome reprieve and helped me disregard work for at least one day.
The inn is very easy to find and is located very close to the funicular, which you can access as a free transfer from the metro. The location is super convenient - about 10 min. walk to the Minimes Roman theatre and the surrounding old town. I greatly enjoyed my stay there, and would recommend to anybody else who needs a place to stay in Lyon.
