Little to add to previous reviews. The location of the hotel and the staff are excellent, it is clean and comfortable (generally), breakfasts are perfectly adequate, and the lunch box is a fine gesture that provides a reasonable snack if you want to save a good few euros (Lyon is a pricey city). However the big-big drawback for this hotel, in the summer months at least, is the lack of air-con. Temperatures were not that high when we were there, typically 25c maximum, but it was very humid and it was impossible to cool down our room which looked onto the narrow and sheltered Rue Tapin. Not easy to sleep in a sauna! Opening the windows helped a touch, but then you had to also contend with noise from pedestrians, traffic and bin-lorries.
I would recommend this hotel outwith the summer months if you are looking for a good mid-ranged/mid-priced place, but I would much rather pay more to go somewhere else with air-con during hot weather.
