“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

Was for the first time ti stay in a Novotel Hotel Lyon but I thought I should try a french hotel since I was still in France after a trip to Paris.
Was is notable about this hotel is the cleanness and freshness. The staff well trained.
Breakfast had a wide choice if cereals probably to many but was definitely a good start in this clean and green city of France.

We had just ended our three week adventures through France and this hotel fit the bill. It is literally steps from the Gare de Lyon (train station). Out boys (10 & 11 ) actually would give this a 5 star because they loved the xbox kid-zone and the pool, which is tiny and oddly shaped. For them, it felt a bot like home with some technology, air conditioning, and they always love the pool. free wifi, and an easy cab ride to the airport. A good stop-over spot.

The hotel is very convenient for transportation. It is close to Part Dieu railway station for TGV connections and a rail service to the airport (replaced by a bus service until 11 Nov). It is also close to the Metro for easy access to vieux Lyon. The hotel itself is clean and up to date but very bland. The food (breakfast and lunch) is OK, but not great and the same applies to the service. The room is a reasonable size, but badly laid out and feels cramped. The bed is not comfortable, especially the pillows. The bathroom is small, but the shower is good.

The wifi was free but rather slow. The hotel has meeting facilities which, like everything were OK. Nothing really wrong with the hotel, but all in all you could probably do better within this price range.

It is outside and to the left of Gare Lyon Part Dieu and next door to the Athena Hotel. The receptionist is located on the second floor accessible via a small elevator and the staff was friendly and helpful while the room was clean and spacious and the Wifi speed at reasonable speed. Transportation to other parts of Lyon is a block or two away and there is a large Mall with Carefour across the street. Even though it is practically above the train station, the room I was in was quiet and train noise was not audible.

I arrived by taxi from the airport in the early evening and somewhat tired after a long flight. On entry into the hotel I was a little confused - no sign of a reception or any directions where to check in. I took the lift in the corner to the next floor to find this is where the reception is situated ( a sign in the entrance, please!)
Check in was simple and straight forward and the staff were helpful and spoke good English. The lift requires you to swipe your room card and only allows you to visit your own floor (after a few tries!!) - no use if you want to meet your colleagues on a different floor, but I guess it is secure.
The room was simple and of a reasonable quality, air conditioned and very clean. The bed was a good size and the bathroom contained a walk in shower with a great shower head, WIFI was free and good speed (WELL DONE!!!!).
I would say the standard of the room was up on the standard budget hotel room, but not massively.
I had a nice meal in the restaurant, choice was limited but the meal was well made and of a good size, I can’t comment on price as it was bought for me! The service was of a good quality and deserves comment - far too often this is a failing - but not at this hotel.
I had a reasonable night’s sleep, no noise and a comfortable bed. I had an early appointment so I had to find an ATM to get some euros before setting off. I spoke with the early shift receptionist and he gave me excellent directions to the ATM at the local station (5 minutes’ walk, easy to find). Due to the time of day I had to ring the reception to be let in to the ground floor lift area, no problem at all.
Breakfast was a basic buffet with a reasonable mix on offer, again as per the standard set by UK budget hotels.
On check out my bill was processed efficiently, I was given some directions to my appointment and a friendly offer to store my bags - very nice.
If I am honest, I feel this is a budget hotel with a few nice tweaks and some good staff. The only problem is, the price does not reflect this
If I compare the price I paid with one of the London hotels I use, of a similar quality, this hotel was about 20 - 30% higher and it's not 20-30% better by any means.

In its favour, the hotel is "nice" but I'm sorry that’s not enough to make up for the extra cost.

We decided to spend 24 hours in Lyon on the way to Avignon and the Novotel Lyon was right outside the train station. We checked in and dropped off our luggage before exploring. You can walk to the old section of Lyon but I would suggest taking public transporation since the train station is right there. There is a big shoppingmall accross the street which is fun is you have room in your luggage for new finds. The breakfast is good - pricey to buy after so get it if it comes in the package.
