This is a great hotel. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a great view out over the town. Windows were triple-glazed to keep the heat in and keep the noise out! Breakfast was good value, lots of choice available.

This is a very nice hotel in an excellent location. It is on the edge of the old city and a walk across the bridge to the new city. The room was clean and comfortable. The room we had only had a jacuzzi tub which would be very difficult for an older person to climb up and over. There was a hand held shower unit in the tub but very awkward to use. They also need better hair dryers. My suggestion would be to ask for a room with a shower unit. Other than that the hotel was great and I would stay there again because of its location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the river for a view, the rooms in the back do not have a view and you can...

I really wanted to be in the old city in Lyon, so it took a while to decide whether I really want to go to this hotel, because I was with friends and have to make the decision. The hotel is perfectly situated at the Quai of the Saon river: ask for a superior room with riverview. Not a luxe hotel, but just go here for the location and the price. I went by car, and I could even park my car. Everything is at walking distance: you should do a "traboules" walking tour: I never even knew this excisted!

The best feature of this hotel is its location, near Vieux Lyon, which is reachable on foot, 5 minutes-walk.
The rooms are very nice, our room had a big fireplace (not functioning), which was a nice feature. The hotel itself is nicely decorated and the breakfast room is interesting.
The walls are a bit thin, and one can hear other people flushing their toilets in their rooms:(

Apart from that, a very good value for money and a great location!

Great small hotel right on the Soane River - Only 37 rooms - ours was enormous with windows that actually opened.

Room Tip: Really large room - not just a sleeping box -

The hotel is located by the banks of the river and has lovely views and it is a 5-15 minute walk to the centre of the city.
The room was good size with a clean decent bathroom. The hotel also offers parking with a small extra cost.
Although the staff's English was very basic, they were very helpful and pleasant.
