“Relaxing and air conditionin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Arrived with a warm welcoming and free drinks then shown our rooms to which they had turned on the air con. Even know inside needs a lick of paint here and there it was reasonably nice. Me and my family's complaint is the lif not going to the ground floo and with one of us being disabled getting to our room and have breakfast was hard but knowing that one of us was disabled they happerly brought it to the room. Great staff.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

Stayed for two nights. Good location for shopping and restaurants. Room has aircon, clean and fair size. Quiet and pleasant area to look around.

Well located hotel just off Place Bellecour in the heart of the shopping district. Short walk to great restaurants (Rue Mercier) and Vieux Lyon. Air conditioned rooms are functional but the staff are the highlight - really friendly and helpful.
All round good choice if you're planning a busy weekend in Lyon and don't expect to spend too much time back at base.
We'd certainly stay again when next in Lyon.

We stayed here for 4 nights and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good hotel in a central location. The rooms are adequate, clean and the staff are lovely. During our stay the lift broke down but it seemed to get repaired quickly. We were on the 4th floor and didnt mind walking up (and we must have burnt off some calories!). We didnt take breakfast as there are lots of bars and restaurants surrounding the hotel so cant comment. Worth noting that the insulation isnt great and we could hear the folks in the bathroom above but its only a small point and wouldnt stop us from returning.
Shoppers do keep in mind that Lyon shops are closed on both Sunday and Monday which is a pity when this is hotel is in the middle of lots of lovely shops :(

Room Tip: Secondary glazing on the windows which kept the noise out but despite being on a main street its rea...

Close to Place Bellecour and Rue de la Republique (main shopping street) the Elysee is in an excellent location for exploring the beautiful city of Lyon. Double room was spacious enough and AC was a welcome addition. We had room only only, so no real interaction with the staff other than at reception, who were friendly and very pleasant. If you're looking for a good base at a resonable price for the city centre, I would definately recommend.

Just walked in and asked if they had rooms available. The elderly gentleman was very helpful and let me see the room prior to accepting the offer. You can get a better price if you book in advance or look around, of that I am sure. Room was quiet, well air-conditioned and clean, but slightly worn. Opted out on breakfast. Slightly odd smell in the lobby area but helpful staff both daytime and nighttime.

My husband and I stayed at l'Hotel Elysée in Lyon on the fist and last nights of our cycling trip. We found the hotel in the green Michelin Guide. I had e-mailed the hotel to see if they would keep our bike boxes while we were doing our 8 day cycling trip. As they agreed to do that, we booked there. Eric (I think he's the owner or at least the manager) greeted us when we arrived. He is a very friendly and charming man and was very accommodating to us, allowing us to assemble our bikes in the small living room of the hotel. Of course, the bedroom was very small but the bed was comfortable and everything was very clean. This hotel is located in the Peninsula area of Lyon. So it is within steps of good restaurants and shops and easy walking distance of the old city and everything a tourist wants to see in Lyon. It is good value. I recommend that you ask for a room at the back of the hotel if you want to sleep with the window open because the front is very noisy, all night. It was cool outside so the air conditionner was not working but it was hot inside. Our room was at the front so it made a difficult to sleep, specially the last night as it was the weekend. and the weekend is noisier. I recommend this hotel for the location, the value, the cleanliness and the friendly staff.
