“Best hotel on our trip to france”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

This was a great hotel I chose from searching online. I got lucky. The room was large & comfortable, wide hallways, loads of atmosphere. Breakfast was amazing & the staff were great.
Best hotel on our trip to France.

The hotel has massive rooms as a result of it being a chateau. The rooms themselves were basic and could have benefited from a bit of TLC in regards to decor, but they were very clean and quiet. The decor in the lobby and the building itself is seriously impressive!

Good points: Free wifi, easy walking distance to the center of lyon, big rooms, clean.
Bad Points: dated decor, location.

As the hotel is near the station, you have to walk around or through the station which inevitably attracts some dodgy characters. There are security guards in the station, but still, it's not exactly ideal.

All hotel staff were polite and helpful.

Room Tip: Walk to the city through the station - much quicker! I had a 2nd floor room which had trees in front...

We arrived at the hotel before the check-in hours, but we were assigned to the room right away. The location of the hotel allowed us to explore the city by walk easily. The all great restaurants and old city are just 10 minutes walk. Many Thanks to hotel staff for their hospitality, understanding and courtesy.
We are definitely recommending this hotel to travelers and Lyon guests.

The physical hotel was very comfortable. But it was the people at the front desk who were fabulous! Many thanks to Perrine, Romain, and Clemente who suffered through our fractured French and spoke beautiful English to us. They helped us get around to all the best spots. It was my first experience "across the pond" and these folks made it so much more enjoyable. Management, give these kids a big raise!!!

This hotel is a beautiful old chateau right next to the Perrache train station in Lyon. The gorgeous building is in need of a bit of love but is still charming. We had a room in the 4th floor with a magnificent view of Lyon, which was amazingly quiet considering the train station right next door.

The splendor of the classy railway hotel was a bit let down by the euro trash music being played at reception, but if you can ignore that, then this place is good value.

The rooms are comfortable and we'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floor for good views and to avoid any train station noise.

This was my first time to go Lyon and stayed in the hotel. I went to Lyon from Paris by TGV. The hotel is next to the TGV station and Metro. The location is perfect. I could reach different part of Lyon with Metro. I stayed in the top floor of the hotel. Although the view of the room was inside part of the hotel, there was still sunshine to the room as it was top floor.

The room was large with free WIFI provided. They also provided full facilities with fridge, hairdryer as well as hot water. A great restaurant was also near the hotel with 5 mins walking distance. I will stay this hotel next time without doubt.

The hotel is near the train station and walking distance from many great Lyon destinations. A short walk will place you at many cafes, parks and stations for longer trips. The hotel is fresh and clean with great staff and wonderful meals. Each room has working wifi and the food and services are top-tier.
