“Magnifique!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

This hotel perfect sums up period France. Situated on a small side street just one road from the Rhone. The decor is very classy with a lovely cosy feel to the room, the en-suite was very modern. Everywhere was exceptionally clean. The only let down was the view, but you know what, its in a busy city on the continent and somebody has got to have a room overlooking the other building at the rear. Staff are very friendly and welcoming.

The location is perfect for bars, cafes, restaurants, and SHOPS!!! Lyon is absolutley gorgeous. Only downside,I could spend here like money was going out of fashion. If you get a chance take a small break here, probably not somewhere you would think of for a city break but you could do a lot worse than Lyon.

Sorry, would have given 5 stars if it weren't for the view in the room.

What a great place. We stayed here for 2 nights. Lyon is such a beautiful city. We loved the older area full of cobblestone streets and ancient buildings. While the room was small and the bathroom quiet tiny - we loved the location and the fact thy it was so clean. Great reception staff who helped us reorganise our travel plans and reassured us that EasyJet was reliable. Reception staff even organised the transfer to the airport for our onward journey to Nice. Overall a boutique hotel that had a lot of character & charm. We totally fell in love with Lyon.

This is a delightful privately owned hotel enjoying a great location just off the Place des Terreaux in the Presqu’ile area of Lyon & within a short walk of the Metro station “Hotel de Ville”.
The original building is very old but has been charmingly modernised without losing its character.
The staff from the moment we arrived couldn’t have been more accommodating & they all spoke very good English which is always a great help. On a busy weekend for eating out they suggested & booked suitable excellent restaurants within our budget & all within a short walk from the hotel.
The breakfast which was included in our deal was great and as soon as anything was depleted it was filled up immediately. It was arranged in the area off the indoor pool so it could be a bit humid but there was another room further away if one wished.
Our room although quite small was attractively furnished & spotlessly clean. We were situated towards the back of the hotel and we heard no sounds from outside whatsoever but the street in any case seemed very quiet.

Very nice hotel for a very short stay. Rooms are beyond small!. Bathroom definitely minuscule, but clean.
Very nice breakfast, very good location and very nice attention in reception. The pool is also quite small, but nice after a day walking around the city.

We stayed here for 2 nights to break a long rail journey home. The building's old but well modernised, and our room was clean and plenty big enough with an above average bathroom. One good night's sleep and one poor one....the latter down to having to keep the window open for climate control and a chain smoker who we suspect was the night porter chatting up a colleague on the patio below throughout the small hours.
Staff (night porter excepted) were very helpful and courteous, however, and the breakfast service was very good. Not sure about the swimming pool running alongside the restaurant, though, giving the place a sauna bath feel. Fortunately we got a table in the small annex next to the main eating area and kept the chlorine out of the croissants!
Hard to say how the hotel could rise above an overall average....but we'd concede they had good occupancy and have plenty of satisfied customers. Location is also good with most of what's worth seeing in Lyon inside 20 minutes on foot.

Room Tip: Inside facing are quieter - watch for noise rising from below, however, as there are small courtyard...

Just returned from 5 nights at this hotel. Lovely old building & walking distance of everything we wanted. Room very clean & decent size (We booked cordelia room & others did look much smaller). Hotel staff pleasant & helpful. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that although 15 euros does seem a lot to pay. Bar pleasant for nightcap.
Got a taxi from the station-17euros but bus C3 or C13 at 2 euros a much better option. Bus stops just along the road from hotel & takes about 10-15 mins. We took this on our return journey.

Room Tip: If you want a larger room upgrade to Cordelia

This hotel is centrally located and the staff are very helpful. There was a television with English channels. Our only complaint is that the room is small for two adults. There are a number of good restaurants nearby, especially Leon de Lyon.
