“Good value, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Very affordable no frills hotel in a very central location, close to shops and restaurants. It's an ideal hotel for those who require a triple or family room but don't want to incur the cost of staying in a suite or of having to book two rooms. The front desk staff is helpful and friendly, the rooms clean and spacious and the beds comfortable. Even though our room overlooked the street, it was quiet. No complaints; this was our second stay at the hotel and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: The rooms on the street side are quiet and the double glazed windows are big and can be opened, so r...

This hotel hasn't been renovated for a while, but it's clean and comfortable. Rooms are spacious and contain a good-sized writing desk, safe, and mini bar. Free wifi is included. I've stayed here three times and the staff have always been friendly and efficient. Great location. This hotel had everything I need in a hotel at a very reasonable price.

For EUR8 I thought the breakfast was fine. I like the fact that they trust the guests to state how many breakfasts they ate at the time they check out.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Location in the middle of the pedestrian area, between
two subway stations, right in the UNESCO heritage area.
The room small, but clean, the bathroom quite big, There is every-
thing one really needs, but do not expect fancy stuff. We slept wonderful. Room rate for
France very competitive, We will gladly return.

I have been there many many times and to my sense this is the best deal in Lyon if you don't want to pay too much. Great location, nice people, nice breakfast, perfect for a short stay for shopping.

Nothing special. Only location is good. Lift is small, breakfast is poor, double room is better for one. But the price is very reasonable and personel is very courteous. If you have luggage better use taxi than metro to get to Rhone express tram to airport.

This hotel is in the middle of the city center, a couple of subway (metro) stations are very nearby. The streets are filled with shops and a Carrefour mini-market, some bakeries and a Mc Donalds and Subway are only minutes away. I didn't try out the breakfast but it smelled good. Only the beds were a little small (I'm 1.91m) and not wide enough. The street out front can be noisy.
