Belambra City - Villemanzy
Ranked #13 of 60 Specialty Lodging in Lyon
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Clean room with good views and access to the Croix Russe district.

Quibbles were poor wi-fi performance which was remedied by asking the right staff member for a cable. The kitchen was poorly designed and lacked bench space. While promoted as a fully equipped kitchen it lacked things such as a grater, sink plug, scissors, dish cloth and washing up detergent. Dishwasher tablets were available free of charge from the reception.

Very good locations, just a few steps from Lyon old town, and a metro station. Located in the very cool area called Croix Rousse. Perfect for who is driving to Lyon as they offer a free parking place. The staff was extremely kind and helpful and allowed us to leave the car in the parking place even after the check out allowing us to visit the city one more day before leaving.
The building is an ex military hospital recently transformed in a apart hotel. The rooms are good, clean, not big but ok for a few days stay. They are equipped with a small kitchen and a dining table. The bed is small (french style) but comfortable.
It's definitely not a luxury location but we were happy with our choice and would come back again for others weekend visits in lyon.

Good location, convenient with the kitchen in the room.
You have to climb to the hotel, but there's a metro stop close enough (Croix Paquet).
I had to ask the reception for clean towels and the ventilation in the bathroom wasn't working.

Room Tip: Pretty noisy on the Rhone side due to traffic.

I stayed at Résidence Villemanzy during a conference in Lyon. It is a nice building (former convent and hospital) in a great location, next to a little park, very central and (if you get the right room) overlooking the city and the river Rhone. The interior is interesting combining old buildings and modern styling with lots of piano's (etc.) scattered around the building awaiting their (planned) restoration.
I would not recommend this 'résidence' to every traveler, as it is more an apartment rental than a real hotel: you have to empty your own bins and the apartment is only cleaned once a week. (on Monday). The top floor rooms are also quite hot in summer, but there is a fan in each room.
The personnel is really friendly (I dont' know about their English though) and the breakfast is quite alright but a bit expensive (8,-). You do not have to take breakfast, as you have your own little kitchen and fridge.
The park in front of the 'résidence' closes in the evening, turning it into a private park for the residents, which is really nice in summer. There is quite a lot of nice from the city though.

We stayed here for three nights and found it ideal. It is just a 2 minute walk from the nearest metro and 5 from the Hotel de Ville. Rooms are clean and comfortable with a useful kitchen area and tables and chairs. Staff were efficient and helpful. We would return.

I stayed in Lyon for four nights for a conference near Hotel de Ville. Villemanzy is just 'up' (an understatement) the hill from the main presqu'ile peninsula that heads to the confluence of the Soane and Rhone rivers. I highly recommend taking the 17% metro up from Hotel de Villes station, just be careful stepping off the train and onto the platform with a heavy roller board.

The hike to the hotel daily will make you strong. There is a very nice restaurant right next to the hotel (not associated) so you don't always have to lose/gain height.

The rooms are very basic. Housekeeping is once per week unless you pay extra, but I found the room suitable if small, and the facility generally well kept and clean. Is a good option for an extended stay if you like the self-catering option and don't want clean linens every day.
