It's a bit funny how they seem to have gone half-and-half on the decor. Bathroom really nice, new reasonably large TV, good bed - but headboard not much more than a piece of chipboard and room looked more like furniture had been placed in it than actually furnished. Nice little courtyard garden, but no place to sit. And location smack in the centre but also in a slightly rough street (at least one Irish pub close by) so evenings and nights you are greeted by a closed, solid wooden double doored gate on arrival - but reception should be 24h, and we had no problem getting let in on arrival around 10.30pm. Staff is friendly and fluent English speaking. Not completely quiet, but for location in the centre of Lyon I wouldn't call it noisy either. No elevators, as far as I could tell, if that is important to you.
A few things to be aware of. The hotel does not have parking, and though public underground parking is available nearby, this is rather expensive (of the three of us, the car had the most expensive stay). There is only one large towel (and two small ones) in the room, but an extra can be requested, so you may want to do that on arrival if you get really wet when showering. Breakfast is a bit meager for the 8 pounds charged, although the baguette they serve is brilliant, but only served with butter and jam - if you are going to take breakfast at the hotel, I'd recommend bringing your own cheese, ham, or saucisson to do the baguette justice. If not travelling by car and taking breakfast at a nearby cafe, I'd recommend this place for visiting Lyon.
