Nice and quiet location about 15 minutes' walk to the city center. Close to the Rhone riverside - nice walk along the quay. Clean and cozy room with a comfy bed, a minibar, tea and coffee making facilities, and a safe. Free wi-fi in the rooms (it was a bit slow at times but that is not uncommon in hotels during the evening "rush hour"). Friendly and helpful front desk staff.

There is only one small elevator, so taking your luggage down at checkout can take longer than you expect. Breakfast is overpriced (EUR 14 as far as I remember) but there are lots of cheaper options in the area around the hotel. All things considered, good value, and I would recommend it.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in the beginning of October. We arrived by car and it was very convenient to use the parking in the hotel, which we booked beforehand. The hotel staff was very friendly and we got the room that we asked for: higher floors, quit location, one queen or king bed.

The room was perfect, descent size, clean, bathroom is good size wi-fi was working pretty good.

The hotel receptionist was kind enough to recommended the restaurant he and his girlfriend used La Tessee, which ended up to be absolutely beautiful experience in the culinary capital of the World. I would definitely recommend this one.

Overall we liked our stay in this hotel, which is very conveniently located close to the river and a short walking distance from city main attractions.

Location for this hotel is great. Easy walk over the bridge to great restaurants. Laundromat is only about 500m away.

They are desperately understaffed so we had to wait for our room to be cleaned before we could get the keys.

The hotel is also stifling hot. The air conditioner did not work because the entire hotel had been switched over to winter mode. We complained and were given a fan which worked very well.

For the price this is a really comfortable hotel, decent size rooms, and well located close to the river. Just a few minutes walk across the bridge is center of Lyon. Ten minute walk takes you tO the "must see" Les Halle food paradise by Paul Bocuse.

We had a very good time in Lyon and this hotel is nicely located. Modern decoration with flat screen TV, walking distance from all main shopping areas and tourist places. Easy access to public transportation. We had a beautiful room with view on the Rhone river.The staff was welcoming and helpful. The place is quiet and our room was clean and spacious. We will definitely come back to this hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way to Paris. Rooms ok, good bed, but service and overall experience was average...ok if you just want a place to sleep & explore Lyon...an easy walk over the bridge to the main shopping area and a little further to the older part of Lyon...

Room Tip: The hotel provides parking for 16 euro per night, but you can get parking close to the hotel if you...
