Best Western Saphir Lyon
Ranked #82 of 195 Hotels in Lyon
Reviewed 31 July 2016

The rooms were very nice and clean, new shower and bathroom. Huge pillows and very comfortable bed. Windows open so you can get fresh, cool air in the evenings. The buffet breakfast was excellent: Large selection of breads and pastries. Eggs, hash browns, ham, cheese, yogurts and cereals to choice from. Juices, coffees, teas and milk. Quite neighbourhood on the backside of the main hill with the Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere. To get to the city its a short (5min) walk from the metro station (Gorge de Loup Stn). Through the hill it is only 1 stop away from the the city center. It only cost 180 euros to use the subway

Room Tip: Get a room on the back side of the hotel, the view is better.

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
