We enjoyd our stay in this hotel very much. The rooms are comfortable, very good bathroom with rainshower and handshower, everything very clean. Staff are always very friendly en helpfull and make you feel welcome.
For breakfast you have three choices, you can have only a warm drink and a viennoisserie, or a small buffet or a large buffet. The hotel also serves lunch and dinner, we can recommend both.
The subway to the towncenter is less than 10 minutes walk and in a very short drive you are already in the towncenter. If ever we visit Lyon again, we will again choose this hotel.

Stayed here July 2016 as a family with 3 kids in 2 interconnecting rooms. Fantastic setup with one room set up with 3 singles and 3 complimentary goody bags and then other room with a double. Staff very friendly and our little one enjoyed the play area while we had a nightcap after a meal out in the evening. Buffet breakfast was included and the kids went to town - kept them going for a good few hours as we continued the drive south to the sun. We will definitely stay again and maybe stop an extra night to see a bit more of Lyon. Thanks to all at Hotel Saphir for making our brief stay so enjoyable!

Location: ok, but neighborhood looked dangerous... do not go for a stroll in the night.

Staff: friendly, helpful and experienced

Breakfast: nothing fancy, classic "western" stuff, quality of food was OK

Rooms: refurbished, not properly ventilated, air-conditioning not working, humidity all over the place, ...

Building: from the 70's? 80's? the lift is old...

haven't tried the bar or restaurant as the menu showed some pricey items...

Wifi: OK

We checked in at this hotel 15th of June 2016. The receptionist was really friendly and helped us with all our questions. We was staying for 5 nights so it was really good to have a room towards the backyard. The room was clean, normal sized, nice bathroom and good WiFi. We were going to try the restaurant but that is not open before 7pm, but the hotel has a snack menu until the restaurants open. We also needed to clean our clothes, but the hotel isnt providing any lundby service. Luckily it is a laundryservice just down the road.
One day we was out at night we was attacked by a neighboorhood gang with out any provocation. We came back to the hotel and the night receptionist was very helpful by getting us an ambulance. When we came back we asked if this was a normal problem for them and he said that it happends every second or third months in the neighboorhood. So if you are going to stay here, beware of them at night specially after drinking alcohol and take taxi to the hoteldoor.
