Don't let the outside of the hotel put you off, this is a lovely little hotel, with very helpful staff in a superb location for both old Lyon and the city center plaza. Our room (201) was right on the front overlooking the river..... Obviously, we were concerned about potential traffic noise. Absolutely no problem at all with two sets of double glazed windows. The A/C was fine for our visit; don't know how it will be in August. Now the room was large by any standard; very large by old city Lyon standards. Nicely furnished, huge flat screen TV, great for watching the French open tennis, but limited non-French channels. Very good breakfast, and worth noting that breakfast was ready and served for us at 5:30 in time for an early taxi to the airport. Which speaks to the attitude of the staff.... No problem. All the front staff have a working knowledge of English.... About as good as my French so we all made out just fine. We're we to back to Lyon we would stay here for sure.
