“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2007

Good, very central location for seeing Lyon by foot. Very friendly and helpful staff. Maybe slightly worn rooms, but on the whole very nice. We booked again for this year's trip.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2007

Price –59 EUR; very reasonable for Lyon in June
Location –Directly on Place Bellecour; easy walking distance to major sites; steps away from metro (good) and tourist office
Comfort –Hard bed; uncomfortable pillows
Cleanliness –Very clean; room smelled of mold and cigarette smoke from other areas in hotel
Noise –Very quiet during night; room was between reception and breakfast area ... noisy in the morning
Staff –Very helpful and kind; spoke English well
Food –Breakfast extra 6.50 EUR per person; standard continental breakfast plus cereal, apple sauce and yogurt (need to ask for yogurt); all fresh
Other/commentary –We were in room 6, which was the smallest room and maybe the only one on the small bare interior courtyard. Strongly advise asking for another room if possible.
Highlight –Good value and location
Lowlight –Uncomfortable bed, mold smell, were put in the seemingly worst room

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2007

We stayed there for our Easter break in 2007.

What we really enjoyed:
-The location: just on Place Bellecour, the strategic center of the city.
-The quiet: in spite of the location, the majority of rooms have windows overlooking the patio.
-The price: it's cheaper if you book through the hotel website: (--)
-The staff: really friendly and helpful.

If I had been really fussy, I would have said the following points could had been improved:
-The breakfast was quite basic, but at least it was sufficient.
-I had a special requirement: as I am damned tall, I wanted a bed without footboard. They forgot that requirement, but they finally managed to find a room with a footboard-free bed. Unfortunately, it was the smallest room (number 10). We saw a few other rooms, they were looking better... but hey, the beds had footboards. :-(
-The walls were quite thin, so we could sometimes hear our neighbours

Stayed several nights. Typical French hotel in an older building so some rooms open on not so quaint inner courtyards. Rooms ample fo a two star and nice small bathrooms. Good breakfast included (with fruit and cereal options as well as usual bread/crossisant). Very clean. Very friendly young staff who speak a little English. Free wireless internet access. Right on Bellecour so a great location. Overall very good value in an expensive city. The same people run the Hotel du Dauphin on Rue Victor Hugo where I also stayed - similar except for tiny rooms and tiny bathrooms.
In both cases reserve ahead because Lyon seems very busy and they were full every night.
