“Good Budget hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2012

Located between the rivers and on a secondary pedestrianised shopping street this hotel is well located within walking distance of some of the major sights in Lyon as well as useful bus and metro routes The negatives - apart from a few coat hangers, our room had no clothing storage whatsoever, the bedding was of poor quality, and if you like fresh air you will be disturbed at night on the street front rooms because of the chasm effect exaggerating mopeds racing around, street cleaning, and boisterous late night pedestrians. On the positive side, this is a good value place especially if you can get a courtyard room for peace, and the staff are genuinely courteous and helpful. It could do with an update but was extremely clean.

However, do your own research on eateries as the one restaurant that the staff all seem to recommend was actually not that good.and we were ripped off over the wines. And also don't bother with the hotel breakfast as there are plenty of good cafes around

Overall, if the price fits your budget and you can get a quiet room, this is an extremely good and friendly place to be based to look around the city

Room Tip: The view from inner rooms may not be good but you will definitely get a good night's sleep.

Some visitors to France may agree that dealing with the French can sometimes be a bit difficult, especially if both parties do not speak each other's language. This was not the case with our experience with the people at Hotel La Residence. They were warm, very welcoming and helpful. The Hotel itself is in a central location. Minutes walk from the Metro and the Bus Lines. We loved Lyon, and will be back there when we can spend more time to explore. While it is a small town, if you want to submerge into the French culture, Lyon would be the ideal city to do so. And Hotel La Residence would and should be a traveller's first choice to stay at.

Cousin and I stayed one night while in Lyon. First time in Lyon so was a good location between rivers. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful to these english speaking tourists! Street musicians playing below our window was an added bonus.

Very affordable no frills hotel in a very central location, close to shops and restaurants. It's an ideal hotel for those who require a triple or family room but don't want to incur the cost of staying in a suite or of having to book two rooms. The front desk staff is helpful and friendly, the rooms clean and spacious and the beds comfortable. Even though our room overlooked the street, it was quiet. No complaints; this was our second stay at the hotel and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: The rooms on the street side are quiet and the double glazed windows are big and can be opened, so r...

This hotel hasn't been renovated for a while, but it's clean and comfortable. Rooms are spacious and contain a good-sized writing desk, safe, and mini bar. Free wifi is included. I've stayed here three times and the staff have always been friendly and efficient. Great location. This hotel had everything I need in a hotel at a very reasonable price.

For EUR8 I thought the breakfast was fine. I like the fact that they trust the guests to state how many breakfasts they ate at the time they check out.
