Reviewed 17 May 2016

Good area with nearby Metro station, staff pleasant and helpful. Undercover car parking next to hotel for 14 euros per night extra. No lift and we were on third floor. Generally the hotel although clean was a bit tatty. Our twin room had a double and a single bed, we slept well so they were obviously comfortable. Bath room small with hand held shower. Toilet was separate and very, very small. Breakfast was brought to you, a piece of bread, one croissant some jam, a tablet of butter, a tub of yoghurt tea or coffee to order. Jam & yoghurt flavours were hotels choice although I am sure they would have changed them if I raised an objection.. No English channel on TV not even news. I probably would not stay there again.

Room Tip: All rooms upstairs, no lift. We were on the third floor.

Staff were pleasant and helpful. Great location across a park from Train, tram and bus station. Lots of restaurants, cafes and shops. Loads of specialty stores and department stores. Close to produce markets along the river. But the hotel it self needs a major revamp. Starting with the stinky old stained red carpet in the corridors and the mould and mildew in the bathroom. The wall, ceilling and even the shower curtain had mould spores on it in our bathroom. And the toilet was the size of a small linen cupboard. Needs a lot of work

Good location in the centre of Lyon not far from the motorway. Excellent value for money, friendly service, handy parking.

Hotel decor outside the room old and in need of decoration, but room itself fine.

Good WiFi.

Overall a great one night family stop en route for the Alps.

Stayed: February 2015

Good hotel very close to Lyon train station, public transport and main sights.
Pluses : Nice, new, clean room & bathroom; very convenient location in central Lyon (station 5 min away, town centre 10 min walking), public transport nearby, fast and polite staff, free public overnight parking on the streets nearby (paying and limited during daytime), free wifi; quiet location, good soundproofing.
Minuses : no elevator, no AC (we had a fan in the room but we didn't use it), public areas are pretty old, would benefit from refurbishment

Stopover on way back from the South. Room excellent value at 103 Eu for 4 adults. Room big and clean with plenty of towels and hot water in very clean bathroom. Staff friendly and helpful with good English. On street payable parking available but manager offered secure parking at 12 E£u a day in adjacent garage. Breakfast again good and at reasonable price. excellent location near to shops and restaurants and a short walk to old Lyon. Sensible way to get around from here with metro close by too.
It is 2 star so do not expect the Ritz but everything we could want. Only draw back so my daughters say is that it was only a wifi hot spot and they could not access the internet - hooray!
Definately would go back
