“SUFFICIENT EXHIBITION HOTEL FOR LYON”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is a clean & comfortable, well appointed hotel in an excellent position for attending Eurexpo 10 minutes away: the route avoids all rush hour traffic. 20-30 minutes from the airport, its restaurant and bar offer surprisingly mediocre food if you wish to avoid the trek into Lyon for some of Frances' top cuisine. Breakfast is always good but crowded & staff are rather stressy at checkout time.

Room Tip: ask for top floor for most quiet rooms

We used this hotel twice, once on our way to Spain with a coach party and again on our way home as overnight stops. I was very impressed on the first stay. A superb evening meal served by friendly staff, one of the comfiest beds ever, and a nice bathroom (with shower, half sized bath, and separate toilet) and lovely toiletries. Plenty of spare pillows, towels and extra bedding if needed. Tea and coffee making facilities, nice tv, and air con. Free wi-fi in the rooms was great. The bar was very expensive.Breakfast in the main dining area was amazing....so much to choose from and all very tasty.
On our return we arrived in the afternoon and it was shame that the outside pool was empty as the weather was still very warm. Our room was as good as before, but one of our party had a problem with a blanket being covered in dog-hair and a couple of fleas....dogs are welcome there but clearly some people allow them to sleep on the beds.
Our evening meal was again very good,and served by friendly staff, but because our party had to leave at 7.30 am, an early breakfast was set up next day in a small room and was very disappointing compared to the feast we had previously experience. It wasn't very hot either, and I gather from the sour look on the waitress's face that she wasn't an early bird. Or certainly not a chirpy one.
Location was fine as a stop-over, but a long way from the city centre, and nothing much but retail parks in the area, so no-where really to go. Secure parking area.
As I say....mixed feelings! If our second experience had been like the first, I would have rated it far higher.

Room Tip: Although only 2 floors, some rooms are a long hike from reception so elderly, disable or simply tir...

We stayed at this hotel on two separate weekends. Rooms are very good with all the facilities you need including tea and coffee making. Comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. Breakfasts very good. Very good experience at this hotel. Would defiantly stay here again.

The Novotel Lyon Bron is best suited for stop-overs as it far from downtown and relatively far from the airport as well (ie. in the middle of nowhere).

There is plenty of space in a secured outside parking lot, and usually 4-5 taxis waiting outside should one need a taxi (a nice touch in France where getting a taxi is often a chancy endeavour).

The lobby is nice and seems to have been recently redone. Check-in was prompt and friendly.

Getting to one's room, one gets a bit worried as the carpet in the hallway is old and full of stains ... but once inside the room the impression is dispelled with nice fittings and (important in the Lyon bassin) perfectly functional air conditioning (even in late September it was needed in the middle of the day). Nice big flat-screen TV and good internet connectivity, despite being in one of the rooms furthest from reception (however the internet speed was very slow).

One complaint about the shower; there are 2 fixed holders for the showerhead, and the showerhead cannot be moved, meaning that one either gets the top of one's head showered, or one's feet. but it is neigh impossible to get the shower spray on one's torso.

Breakfast choice was excellent (they even had crèpes), but as the hotel seems to cater to a lot of groups, the breakfast room is often mobbed and one can wait up to 10 minutes in line at the coffee machine. Dinner was more pleasant. In all cases, the restaurant staff was attentive and friendly.

So why only a 3*, average, rating ? Basically because of the price; at $215 per night, nowhere near an airport or downtown, this is a bit steep for what one is getting.

On a drive through trip of central France. English only speaker. Usually stay in budget facilities and local owner hotels.

Room/hotel is excellent! Coffee in room appreciated. Wake up calls. Did not use restaurant or bar but it looked great. Did not have breakfast as the cost seemed high. The room price I paid through a travel website offered a much better price than the hotel itself.

Not so goods: far from Lyon city OR St.

It is a bit difficult to find this hotel given the directions and physical location of the hotel.

We stayed here for one night to break our journey to the french riviera. It is a good location if using it for this purpose being outside of the city and about 2/3 of the journey down through france. The hotel is a fairly basic travel lodge style place but our room was impeccably clean and the service was great. It represents good value for money although I would skip breakfast next time as its fairly dear for what is provided. We didnt use the pool so I cant comment on that. The communal areas of the hotel could do with a spruce up but the reception and room were very good indeed. I would stay again as an overnight stop. the restaurant serves a basic but perfectly adequate menu until late. All in all, it does what it says on the tin !!

Fairly typical Novotel. Nothing especially good, or bad, about the rooms. Dinner in the restaurant was well-priced and average quality whereas, considering the location, the rooms were rather over-priced. WiFi access was acceptable speed and free. Standard of cleanliness was acceptable but the carpets are beginning to look rather stained and worn.
