Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette
Ranked #30 of 194 Hotels in Lyon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is a well located and appointed hotel. It is close to the city's very good transportation and in easy walking distance of the Rhone river.
The restaurant in the hotel is fine: a variety of fresh foods, well prepared.
The staff in both the hotel and restaurant were great. Though they are not a conference hotel, the staff knew what conference-support facilities were likely to be helpful and invested their time in making sure their information was up to date. Would highly recommend this hotel in this beautiful city.

Wonderful hotel, very helpful staff, so clean, nicely detailed and designed room with tons of lighting options. The internet never really worked -- we just were bumped off again and again and it was so slow when we got on -- on any of our 4 devices. This was a huge pain since we do a lot of travel planning this way. The location was good, too. The only other annoyance was that the parking rate went up during our stay and they didn't honor the original rate for the stay -- this would have been a better practice. A great choice for Lyon and a quick walk to Les Halles which is a highlight!

Great hotel, very clean, quiet, friendly staff, breakfast was nice, free wi-fi and very central (15 minute walk from the main station, 5 minute walk from the river and only 10 minutes from the old town)

Lyon is a magnificent city, one tip, get the Rhone Express from the airport into the city, its really simple and takes less than 30 mins, a taxi will cost you €65 - €80

This an excellent hotel with very new and up market decore. Very friendly staff and good restaurant for breakfast and meals. Big plus is the car parking services with car drop off in the front of the hotel. Very close to main Lyon city centre.

Not too far from the congress centre - and remember: in Lyon you take the fantastic city bikes and drive along the Rhone to the congress center - a marvellous ride in the sunshine to and back! For this option the hotel has an ideal location. Rooms are spacious, good bathrooms and quiet place for sleeping.
Breakfast is also Ok, so in all a very nice experience.

Nice place, modern, clean, good service, good quality breakfast. The room seemed almost new. Car park (paid service). Not in town centre, but close 15 min walk from Place des Jacobins in the centre of the "presqu'île". Very close to Les Halles de Lyon (Paul Bocuse market).
Style is more for business than leisure, maybe.

First time in Lyon. It is a lovely, beautiful city! This is a good hotel. Definitely good value for your money. Nice reception. The location is good: approximately 15 min. Walking distance from the city centre and a couple of minutes from the Rhône. We had a Family room with two queen sized beds. The beds are very comfortable. Nice bathroom with rain shower. The room is very clean (although it would be cleaner of it did not have carpet on the floor (i hate carpet in hotel rooms, not easy to clean and a lot of dust). I usually use my own pillowcases and towels, which I take with me from home, but It was not necessary here! Free wifi.

Breakfast could be better, there is not a lot of choice in food. Parking is quite expensive.
