“Pretty good experience”
Reviewed October 1, 2008

This hotel was in a decent location, close to Hotel de Ville. The night staff didn't speak english very well, but with our limited french and their limited english we were able to communicate. The staff was helpful to correct things when we arrived and the breakfast was decent. No real issues with this hotel, especially for the price!

We may not stay here again but only because we enjoyed Old Lyon so much that we would prefer to stay there if we travel back to Lyon.

I stumbled on this place by accident. We had driven to Lyon and parked the car, and were looking for something central. This place, considering the price (about 60 Euros) was a gem if you happen to like charming places with character that also happen to be clean with modern modern amenities (broadband Internet). My advice: try to get a courtyard-facing room, although the street-facing rooms are probably not all that noisy.
Good points:
Charming building, very clean rooms and bathrooms, individual character, lovely patio, VERY helpful staff, modern amenities (broadband), centrally located just minutes from the Metro and seconds from the Place des Terreaux, museums, a laundromat, bars and cafes

At this price, any hotel is bound to have some drawbacks, so here they are:
1) no lift (but a very pleasant receptionist lugged my heavy bag upstairs without my even asking).
2) fluctuating hot water
3) the street could SEEM a little dodgy at night for single women. Late at night, I would suggest getting to the hotel by using the street from the CENTRE of the Place des Terreaux rather than the side. I personally didn't have any problems, but I'm aware that some single women might not like that side street at night.

  • Liked — Location, pleasant rooms with individual character, patio facing, very nice staff, broadband
  • Disliked — Hot water or lack thereof
  • Stayed June 2007, traveled with friends
