This is a lovely hotel which had been recently refurbished. It was spotless throughout. We had booked one of the larger rooms and it was very spacious. The bathroom was also very spacious with places to put toilet bags! Air conditioning worked a treat - I like a cold room! This is often not the case with UK and European hotels. Our rate included breakfast and a Lyon Card which gave us a boat, local transport and entry to museums.
Staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful at all times.
The hotel is in an ideal location for exploring the city. Our rate included breakfast, a boat trip and local transport. The sightseeing bus stops are close by.
The city is easy to explore by foot but there are public transport options.
