Hotel Alexandra
Ranked #33 of 194 Hotels in Lyon
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Stayed in Lyon for the weekend. Hotel is very close to the shopping street and their quaint little restos. It is great value for money for location and a no frills stay. If you are trying to woo your partner I would not recomend this hotel. However if its for a quick, practical, clean stay- its perfect. Parking under hotel is a brilliant plus too.

Great position within walking distance of the old town, shops and Place Belcour. Car parking cost €26 per night but worth it. If you have booked the car park you can drive down the pedestrianised Rue De Victor Hugo to the hotel. The room we stayed in was adequate and had air con. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was very poor at €14 per person and well worth missing. You can get a coffee and croissant for €4 two doors down.

Dear Sir,

We thank you for sharing your impressions after your stay at Hotel Alexandra.
We are pleased that our newly renovated hotel is able to meet your needs (air conditioning, decoration, position).
Our garage is a closed private garage, monitored by video surveillance and so you can be secure in your vehicle at night.

We have taken note of your impressions of the breakfast, and we will improve it. We are considering a new room and a new implementation that will showcase all the products we offer, sweet or savory.

Thank you ,

We will be pleased to welcome you during a next stay in Lyon,

Kindly,
The Team of Hotel Alexandra

Location, price and facilities fantastic, beautifully designed though! Like half the hotels in France it is cramped, that is what makes French cities so vibrant, but I really applaud the designer of this hotel for creating a really chic little hotel which is a pleasure to stay in (and looking at some of the older traveller photos there was a long way to go!).

Well done everyone!

Room Tip: Lower floors at the front- the noise is moderate but the square is charming

The rooms are small. I could not open my medium size luggage anywhere but on the bed. But I read most Lyon hotels are small. This was the smallest I ever slept in. But at least the ceiling was high. Not recommended for wide people. I'm a small girl and I fit perfectly. Can see larger ppl having trouble. The shower is about 3'x3' with a 2' wide entrance. Location is excellent. Can see the train station Lyon Pechache from outside. It's less than 5 mins walk away. Lots of shopping and Old Lyon is about 10mins in the other direction. Near a market and Mc Dona;ds is across the street and open until 1am!!! If you get a room facing the street, it's a bit loud as ppl like to hang out near McDonalds and the mini square next to it.

Room Tip: Don't pick a room facing the street. Great view but noisy at night.

This hotel was picked because of it's location and as promised it is centrally located and a short distance from all attractions. It is on a pedestrian street which means it is pretty quiet. The hotel also has parking facilities which is super convenient but at the same time quite expensive (26 euros a day) and very very crowded and narrow, very hard to get in or out.

The rooms are quite newly furbished and so are the bathrooms. They are nice but very much on the small size with limited room to move around.

Staff was nice and helpful.

Breakfast wasn't cheap at 14 euros so we hopped out to one of the nearby bakery's around.

All in all a good hotel, conveniently located not far from the train station and practically on a metro line.

Great location, the room was very quiet despite looking on to a busy street. Very well kept hotel, I was surprised it was so nice because its only a 3*. The room did not have a lot of space around the bed but the bed was very comfortable. The check in was quick. The is a lift that goes from the ground floor to the reception if you don’t want to walk. They also have a terrace with some tables which must be very nice in the summer. I would sleep here again.

staff was always very friendly and helpful, the new rooms were nicely arranged and very clean, also pleased about the roomy bathroom. many cafes closeby for breakfast. only slight disadvantage was the very small window.

Room Tip: best place to stay central in Lyon, all sites within walking distance
