Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on business recently, instead of the Ibis (my usual hotel of choice in Lyon) next door that was full.

The facilities are better than the Ibis, as reflected by the price.

Like the Ibis, it is located very near a tram station, with easy access to Lyon's transport network.

Very good breakfast spread that included hot cooked food such as sausages, bacon and very yummy scrambled egg.

I arrived late on the first night, and had a good glass of beer with complimentary peanuts before going to bed.

The temperature of my room was too hot for my liking, and had to open the window to cool down as I was not able to lower the temperature via the thermostat (and no, I did not report to the reception as it was only a very minor issue).

On my return after dinner at about 22:00, one of the two lifts for guests was not working. It was still not working the next morning, much to the annoyance for those who were on the higher floors (I was on the 7th), as it took a lot longer to get down to the ground floor to check out/have breakfast etc...

I would have given a higher score had the issue with the broken lift been addressed by the morning rush hour (I had provided similar feedback to Accor Hotel group).

All in all, not a bad stay. However, I can't help but feel the Ibis next door offers better value for money, sorry!

Room Tip: Avoid the higher floors in case the lifts breakdown!

We stay at this Novotel everytime we are over Lyon as it is very well located close to the city center (5 minutes by tram) the personnel is very kind and we feel like home. Ptactically at every stay we have ever been granted with good attentions ad this last time we have been upgraded for a suite instead of the room we booked: superb... many thanks!
This will be for long time our second "home" in Lyon.

The lobby is fine with their bar and restaurant.
The rooms are quite old.
The service at the reception is crazy. I still didn't understand why they charge guarantee for restaurant, if I didn't know if I would have some meal there! VERY EXPENSIVE for THE QUALITY PRESENTED

The Novotel is located on a very busy road by the river in an unattractive commercial area. The hotel itself is a typical Novotel - efficient but rather impersonal - and the reception staff were friendly. The restaurant is poor - there are only 3 main courses on the menu and by 8pm on a Saturday evening steak was no longer available. I then ordered a burger from the snack menu which was served virtually raw with burnt fries. The restaurant staff were unconcerned. The hotel has secure parking but one to be avoided in my view.
