“Good for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

A comfortable place smack in the center of town, not easy to get to by car (it does have a nearby garage, though) and with rooms maybe a bit small. The reasonable rates compensate somewhat, although breakfast is a bit overpriced at 8€ (you can get excellent pastries and coffee across the road for about 3 € per person).
Within walking distance of all places of interst including the old town and the Croix Rousse quarter, it can be a reasonably priced option if you decide to stop in this very french and very nice city. Aim for the lower end of the price scale, as at over 100 € this hotel would be too expensive.

I have stayed at La Residence for ten days at a time on three separate occasions. The hotel is in a great location just south of Bellecour, and there are many good restaurants and bars within a short walk. These are not luxury accommodations - the rooms tend to be small (and are highly variable in size), and the hotel has no pool, bar, or other amenities. However, the rooms are spotlessly clean and the staff are very accommodating. Given the price, the hotel offers an excellent value. Important note: as a result of its location on the Rue Victor Hugo, the hotel suffers from an extreme noise problem from the outside -- groups of people walk down the street shouting and singing late into the night, and the garbage trucks and construction vehicles arrive around 6:15 AM every weekday to start work. Most rooms face either the Rue Victor Hugo or Rue Sala, and to get a good night's sleep in those rooms, you will probably have to keep the windows closed and air conditioner on to drown out the outside noise.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room that faces the interior courtyard. Rooms facing either t...

The hotel was comfortable and clean and as already said it has a retro feel. The breakfast room was a bit of a scramble as there was not enough space and the supplies kept running out. The location was fine with onlt short strolls to the tourist attractions. Lyon was a pleasant surprise; we recommend it for a stopover en-route or for a weekend away.

We couldn't have been happier with the location of this hotel - an easy walk from Vieux Lyon, close to the shops and transport links. As expected, the location makes it a little pricey for its quality (its interior has a very retro feeling!) but providing you aren't expecting absolute luxury, you'll find it an ideal bolthole for a long weekend in this gorgeous city.

We stayed here for 3 nights and were very happy with the price/quality level. It's just off Place Bellecour and down the road from Perrache station (not nearest the station end of the road). Good breakfast served in room for no extra charge, friendly staff, room 215 overlooks courtyard and is quiet. Only slight negative: the water pressure isn't great.

Stayed here for six nights while I explored Lyon. Rue Victor Hugo is a pedestrianised shopping area which is quiet after shopping hours. The hotel is a short walk from the Metro, the Tourist Office, Place Bellecour and about a ten minute stroll to the old town across the river Saone. I didn't take breakfast in the hotel (trying to diet and saving myself for an evening meal in a bouchon!) but it looked fine and good value in comparison with many hotels. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Room and bathroom were kept spotlessly clean. I would certainly go back here the next time I visit Lyon.

This hotel is in an excellent location. Very convenient - close to place Bellecour, metro lines, easy working distance to old Lyon. Very clean. Front desk personnel very helpful and all spoke English. Extensive buffet breakfast at a resonable price. Our room was one of the larger rooms in the hotel on the third floor. Would definitely stay at this property when visiting Lyon again and recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for higher rooms and a large room if available.
