Reviewed April 7, 2014

This is a well positioned hotel in central Lyon, just 5 minutes to the old part which is full of inexpensive and fun bars and restaurants. The hotel has had a serious contemporary make over in the public areas (reception, bar and restaurant). The rooms are 4 star and are in need of an upgrade. We had a room overlooking the river and it was delightful. Well equipped. Good bed, sheets, towels. The 8th floor is where breakfast is served and if you are kucky as we were with the weather, then its really a 10/10 view. I have rated this hotel 5 star as whilst the rooms are 4 star everything else including the staff was definitely top grade.

Hotel well located, close to metro stations and a few meters from the tourist point of interest in the city: the old town. The reception service, through concierge service and attention given by the room, deserves five stars. Rooms very comfortable with noise and anti Automatic window blinds. Gigantic bed, soft. Bathroom with forever, but with seal products Hermès. And if, after all this, anything you please, at least try a breakfast on the eighth floor of the hotel, enjoying delicious delicacies, with a stunning visual backdrop. Advise for everyone! Vive la France!

I was in this hotel for a meeting.
Nice location, nice staff.
Breakfast was great and we also had an opportunity to have a very good business lunch.
Rooms are big and silent.
Staff was really very very helpful.
Cannot say about the price, because the company paid it for me.

Came to Lyon for business application, stayed for a day. Rooms are very neat and clean. Facilities are excellent. Very good location for a solo or group city tour. Ideal hotel for family or business stay.

Room Tip: Try rooms facing the river
