Hotelo was a lovely place to stay. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. The staff are so friendly and helpful. On arrival I was shown a map with all the great places to go and must see attractions. They also offer any help requested - restaurants etc. Breakfast is simple but very nice. It is very close to public...

Good location, clean and comfortable rooms, the staff was very helpful and accommodating. As other reviewers have mentioned, the showers do not have curtains and it's hard to keep the water off the bathroom floor. I highly recommend this hotel.

Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable quiet room, excellent shower. Only problem was finding the right way out of the station - no information or maps at the station, lifts that appear to go only to car parks or bus station, and escalators not working. Walk down stairs to huge square with fountains, turn sharp right to the square corner, and...

This hotel is simple but very nice. Everything was clean and comfortable. We stayed for four nights. The breakfast was very nice. Simple but tasty. The hotel staff is very helpful and kind. They helped us with everything we asked for and did that little extra to make our stay great. I would gladly recommend this hotel.

The hotel manager here has turned around a small hotel with hard work and the number 1 rule in the hotel game is hospitality. The small team at Hotelo all went that extra step in making our stay super. The hotel manager offered me a cold beer after walking over 10 km's on a day out in Lyon in Australian...

This hotel really delighted us during a weekend visit to Lyon. All staff were really friendly and helpful and gave us some excellent tips. The room was not big but well arranged, with a nice bathroom. The hotel has an original style and is not like all the others - loved the breakfast crockery, and also the breakfast itself, although...

What a lovely little hotel. Staff were extremely helpful. Room was nice. We travelled as a family of four with our dog. It was nice to have a family room where we were not charged an extortionate price. Fantastic location to explore the city of Leon. Good breakfast. Highly recommend.

The staff were very helpful and caring and dealt with our many needs. Location near Metro was good for getting around Lyon. Room was basic but quiet and equipped. Breakfast was well prepared and room was inviting.

The room fees are really cheap for this kind of hotel. The first contact was a bit cold but then after the staff was friendly and the breakfast is really good. The room are nice and very very clean. However the street is really noisy (renovation work, garbage collector in the early morning, I might have been unlucky) and you...
