This is a great hotel on two counts: first, it is easily accessible to travellers coming from or going to the Lyon airport (the airport tram stops right outside) or the Part Dieu train station (which is about 50 metres down the street). Second, the level of accommodation is very good value for the price. Our room was generous in size, clean and freshly decorated in contemporary style, and the bathroom was large and sleek, with a good shower and generous basin. The toilet was separate and had a hand basin. There were shampoos and shower gels but we couldn't figure out how to open the trendy packaging but only two bath and two hand towels. The hair dryer worked energetically. The bed was very comfortable (there were extra pillows in the wardrobe if you don't like Euro-style pillows) and the hotel was extremely quiet, with double glazed windows to keep out street noise and heavy curtains that could be closed to ensure the room was dark. There was a room safe, a mini bar (with nothing in it), tea and coffee products and free wifi which didn't always work but was fine when it did. The breakfast buffet was large and quite nice, catering for both European and American tastes, and is offered free to the elderly. The reception staff were smiling, efficient and friendly and made us feel welcome. Certainly recommend this hotel if you need a convenient place to stay near transport.
