The Hotel du Theatre is located in the centre of old Lyon between Bellecour and Saint-Jean. Entrance is gained up two flights of stairs from the rear of the building (no lift). This is a little inconvenient but more than made up for by the location and price. The rooms vary in size and view considerably and it is worth the few extra euros for the Superior room which had a magnificent view over the Celestins Place and theatre both day and night. The Breakfast and Breakfast room were very pleasant and more than adequate. Riverside bars, restaurants and markets were all less than 10 minutes walk, one of the best restaurants was beneath the hotel facing the Square. It would be hard to find a better value hotel in Lyon with such a great location so long as you don't mind the stairs.

Room Tip: Make sure your room has a view over the Square.

Great location in the City Centre near the theatre and main shopping street. Reception upstairs but no lift available (if required). English spoken. Reception staff friendly & helpful. Room was slightly disappointing. Felt dirty but not awful. Shower was powferful but no curtain. Breakfast was an added bonus over a good time period. A refurbishment would make it an amazing place. Free wifi available.

Room Tip: Rooms with afivew of the theatre and square are available.

Yes, as someone said, the entrance is behind the hotel. Who cares? It's well lite and safe.

There is no elevator and there is no help with luggage so be prepared. For this price and the location, I would not complain.

I paid just a few more dollars for a Superior room which came with a view of the Theatre. For a room in Europe at this price, the room was very big and bathroom was large. It was very clean and the location could not be better. About a block from the River and a few minutes from everything. If you want to use the city bicycles, you can rent one in front of the hotel.

There was a little bar on the corner by the river called Seven. Convenient at night for a quick drink and only a minute away. They spoke english and where very friendly. Gave me a poster they had on the wall I asked about and also helped me with restaurant recommendations. In fact, they recommended a restaurant below the hotel. (One the first floor of the same building as the hotel....the hotel is on the 2-4 floors.)

Lyon is a great city...have fun.

Room Tip: Steps.....ask for a room on the second floor if you have an issue.

Stayed for three nights with my wife-The reception on the second floor with no lift (which we were aware of) seemed a long way with two heavy cases.The entrance is not on the lovely square but in a fairly grotty side street-the pictures are misleading.Continental breakfast was very good value.

Main plus the location -very central to all local sights but a 100 euro return trip from the airport .

Room was basic - but clean

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the square.

I just recently returned fro a visit to Lyon, a beautiful French city, especially at night. The Hotel du Theater was recommended in a guide book. There is no lift and you have to walk two flights to reach the lobby and I had to walk two more flights up (4 total) to my room with 2 heavy suitcases and no help. The pluses for the hotel is that it is clean, and the location is terrific, right in the the center of the old town with a short walk to wonderful sites. The wireless is free. I did not pay for the Sunday morning breakfast of 6 euros for coffee, juice and bread. A travel tip: there are not many places opened on Sunday morning, so if you want breakfast, you may need to pay the price. The staff was nice about directions, etc.

Room Tip: Ask to look over the square in front of the theater
