We loved the location of this hotel - very close to the river, a short walk to Vieux Lyon, and next to a lovely & quiet sqare with a beautiful theater. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was big enough, clean, and comfortable. We had a great 3 night stay and would definitely return.

You could not find a better location in Lyon. Just a min walk across the bridge to old town.. The hotel is located in the clean and safe part of the city..The rooms are great, clean and modern. We just love it. We were only going to stay one night in Lyon, but the hotel was so great and the location is so great we are staying one more night. The girl working the front desk, is amazing she know everything about Lyon......she is very nice and makes us feel like this is home......We would not Thinks about staying anywhere else in Lyon.

this hotel is in the perfect location. my mom and i got off the train at lyon perrache and it was a short walk to the hotel, which is right by place bellecour - but also right on the river, where there is a great outdoor market (sunday for sure, i dont know about other days). room was small but comfortable. we didnt have breakfast, preferring a pastry at the market. i would stay there again without a doubt - friendly staff who recommended dinner places and gave discount coupons for the grand tour bus

We stayed for 6 nights and congratulated ourselves on having found a very clean, orderly and friendly hotel.Though not exactly cheap, we felt it was acceptable value as breakfast was included and we had found the best rate with Expedia.Where do they get the fabulous beds?We did look and found a french label...a shame as we are due to buy one. Rooms are small and I agree with another contributor that a mirror would have been good in the bedroom, but it was quiet, had a great view over the square(room206, a twin so enormous beds pushed together), was serviced very well indeed and had all we needed.Just great to walk across to the old town or 5 minutes from belle-cour tube.We would use this hotel again.

Breakfast was fine.Croissants, cheese and ham, compotes, eggs etc and the small breakfast room was pleasant with excellent , friendly service.

The City Card was good value but watch out as many places are closed earlier in the week .The Roman museum is free on a Thursday anyway.The silk -makers and traboules tour was fantastic and highly recommended for the insight it gave into silkmakers' lives.

Cafe des Federation provided an enormous and delicious endless -course meal, though you do need to book ahead.The Laurencin in the old town was also very good indeed and enormous portions of hearty authentic lyonnaise food.

One restaurant in the old town, the name of which escapes me, is probably ok for a drink as it's so interesting.The menu is handwritten in old school exercise books.The furniture is school -like.Portion are very poor indeed and one diner had two meals !!

The best museum I have ever been to is in the old town.The Miniature museum (and film).

Room Tip: On the front , rather than facing the courtyard.A twin gives an enormous double bed.

We staid here a few nights and we liked it a lot. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The room was on the small side but that is standard in a European city, it was nicely decorated and the bathroom was also good. Breakfast was great, big plus for offering freshly squeezed orange juice, and there was a good variety of bread, pastries, cereal, etc.
The location is perfect, it's in a quiet street, a lovely square next door where there are several lunch/dinner options and just steps from many stores and 5mins walk to Vieux Lyon.
