“Excellent hotel with great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2011

The nice thing about this hotel is that is is 2 blocks from the Metro - so one can see all Lyon and then have a relaxing ride back to a comfortable hotel that costs much less than the ones in the center of town. The rooms were great, service exceptional. A good place!!!

Expensive for what you get but VERY good service from all desk staff and housekeeping staff. Very quiet; comfortable beds. Breakfast buffet is very tasty but pricey at 14 Euro. Nice, small outdoor pool.

It's fairly obvious when you look at their website that this hotel is not in the centre of Lyon! We chose it as a stopping off point on the way to the South of France. It's not the most beautiful of buildings or locations - fairly usual for a Novotel - but it was very clean, good service, great bathrooms and comfortable beds with duvets. Breakfast was fine - probably a bit over-priced since there's nothing much else around but at least it had freshly squeezed orange juice! Great value too - $150 approx for two inter-connecting rooms. Children enjoyed the pool and the table tennis. Dinner was reasonable. All in all a great stop-over hotel.

This hotel is a reasonably priced option for a weeken break or business person, but it's poorly located about 40 minutes walk from the centre of town. Breakfast wasn't that great either, but with no cafes nearby you're rather stuck!

We have stayed in hotels costing 5 x the price and not had as good service. having travelled for 12 hours with young children, we were stressed out and exhausted by the time we arrived after midnight (6 hours later then expected due to heavy traffic). The lovely man on the desk could not do enough for us, we had very clean, comfy inter-connecting rooms and he even made us coffees and put a box of breakfast together for the kids when we left at 5.30am.
The hotel is perfect location if you are travelling and want the road to the south, it was only 2 minutes off the motorway...FABULOUS.

I'm usually staying at this hotel when travelling to Lyon for business. It has to be said that my main reason is that it's near my business, but I have to say the hotel is very comfortable, anyway .
Good breakfast, while the restaurant is just average (you will find better places not too far from the hotel, it's not necessary to go to the city centre).
Very good service; comfortable and clean rooms (maybe the "small size" is a bit too small).
Of course it's not a charming hotel, nor it is near the centre. But If you don't mind for such things, it's just perfect.
