This hotel is well situated for touring central Lyon: the old city and shopping. The room was nice-sized and well-appointed and the staff was friendly. We saw free entertainment in the square in front of the hotel on two different nights - quite a bonus. This is a good value hotel.

Very friendly staff. Mid-size rooms with comfortable beds, firm pillows. Room was clean as was bathroom. Large shower. No problem with road noise. Has A/C if you need it. 5 min walk to nearest metro and less than 10 min walk to funicular and Vieux Lyon. Only complaint is the €13.50 cost for breakfast so just grab a croissant/coffee from...

This is a great little hotel in a brilliant location in the centre of Presque I'le. There is a lot to see in Lyon and you can walk to just about everything from here. The rooms are on the small side but perfectly adequate. The staff are friendly and welcoming. If you don't want to spend a lot on breakfast... More

The really great things: unbelievable location, right in the center of the old town; great service; comfortable bed; nice bathroom; great tub. Breakfast available. Downside: The room was small, really good for one person, very tight for two. I would recommend a close look at the advertised size of the rooms and pay a bit more for a larger space,... More

What a surprise Lyon is, and this hotel is the perfect base for exploring. You can walk everywhere, or jump on the excellent transit system. Great restaurants nearby. A short walk to the tourist information center. Very helpful staff, you feel safe and well cared for. Rooms are clean and contemporary but a little small.

We stayed here based upon reviews in travel guides and were very happy with the service, room and location. The staff could not have been more helpful and the accommodation was excellent. We were able to walk to the old city and all over modern Lyon. The subway was a short walk away as is the tourist office. We had... More

We stayed here for four nights and enjoyed the super location. Easy to walk out to all major attractions, pop back to drop off any shopping or shower before dinner etc. Rooms are a little tired, but size is fine. Would likely return just to be so close to the action.

It was a wonderful discovery made through the TA community. We were on the 6th floor in the back and liked the surroundings very much. It was close to museums, restaurants and transportation. Very clean accommodations and wonderful front desk personnel, who facilitated our visit. Highly recommended.

We stayed for a weekend away on Eurostar and found the hotel in just the right place, close to everything, in a quiet square, great little restaurant just round the corner and a very comfortable bed.
