I stayed at the Mercure on a business trip for two nights. The room was clean stylishly decorated and well equipped. The staff were very helpful and pleasant and room service swift and of good quality. I would recommend this hotel, but breakfast was expensive ( the is a great Artisan bakery just around the corner for a less expensive breakfast goods option)

Spent 5 nights at this hotel and I can only say good things. Very modern style rooms with comfortable beds. Bathroom is small but functional and a nice rainfall shower. Probably because of the modern style there is little storage in the room if you like to unpack your bags.

Breakfast was included in our fare and it was very nice. The hotel staff was always ready to help, friendly and attentive.

The hotel is nicely located with walking distance (about 15 minutes) to the nice compact downtown area where there are TONS of restaurants and bars. After my 5 day stay I came to the conclusion that it is almost impossible to go wrong with Lyon restaurants :-)It is also close to the train station and to the Lafayette shopping center. We travelled everyday to the CCC convention center by taking the C4 bus just around the corner and it was a 10 minute bus ride for 2 euros.

For those who like to run, there is a nice path right on the shore of the Rhone rive that goes about 5km one way.

I would definitely stay there again.

some confusion by the staff as to whether the breakfast was included or not. Turned out it wasn't and €18 for breakfast is ridiculous so I ate elsewhere. Apart from that it was comfortable and well located. Make sure you take a power adapter as they don't have spares. You also have to fill in all you details every time you use the wifi which is a bit tedious, though it is free.

Des client,
Thanks fo ryour comment about your stay in our hotel.
We feel sorry you did not enjoy it as much as expected. Please mind we offer our clients to buy power adapter for €14. We will warn the reception team in case they did not give you this informations. It is true we do not lend them.
We hope we will be able to welcoming you again in a Mercure hotel in France.
Best regards,
