We had a twin room opposite the lift and overlooking the busy train station and never heard a thing! The rooms are very large and spacious with all mod cons. Especially good was the separate toilet with handbasin and you could have a party in the walk in shower it was so big! You have a rainfall shower head and a seperate hand held shower. The room has a reasonable sized fridge that came in very handy for the fresh milk, beer and wine! We stayed there for 8 nights and made ourselves at home by buying mugs as they only supply paper cups but you do get a big kettle. The large flat screen TV was a bonus but as there were only 3 English speaking news channels we took advantage of connecting my laptop to the screen by HDMI cable. The aircon was quiet enough to leave on all night and was very effective at keeping the room cool.
The location of the hotel was very good - it was beside the train station for connection to other towns and the Alps but also had good local links to other parts of the city by bus, tram or underground. We came in from the airport on the RhoneExpress and the hotel was just a walk across the road. We also did a lot of walking and once you got your bearings it was very easy to get around and we felt safe at all times. Never really thought about Lyon as a holiday destination before but we managed to do lots and really enjoyed ourselves. Our highlights were visiting the Old Town and discovering the traboules, a trip down the river, the park Tete D'Or, a coach tour round Beaujolais country and a trip to Vienne, only 20 mins by train.
