Great hotel for a central Lyon visit. Small reception / lounge / bar area. Rooms are small and shower room tiny, but all OK. Excellent hotel staff with eager to help attitude. Quiet street (no night noise) but really close to the rivers in either direction, the shopping centre, the old town, and the lanes of bars and restaurants -... More

The lobby provides a pleasant impression, the front desk staff are a delight, but room 611 is extremely cramped. There is no enclosed bathroom - instead it has a minute sink area inserted adjacent to a shower, both of which are open to the bedroom - there is no door to screen the sleeping area. The commode is in its... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and I would have enjoyed an even longer stay! So much to explore in this town! The Mercure's location is excellent for seeing much of the city. The rooms are great and excellent breakfast. The staff at the front dest were always very helpful! Highly recommend this hotel.

We were very happy with our room at the Mercure....although I have to admit we spent most of our time exploring Lyon and not much time at the hotel. Looking back, I can see that this Hotel was a good choice for us. Good central location, extremely friendly staff, cozy little room, all located in a part of Lyon that... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights last weekend (the 9th & 10th of Sep). The hotel is in a great location right in the city centre close to the southern end of the Rue de Republique. However it is set on a fairly quiet road so no night time disturbance. Our room was at the top of the... More

I had the pleasure of staying 8 nights recently at this hotel.Check in was the quickest that I've every experienced - amazing. Very friendly staff who all spoke English (thanks!) and were helpful assisting me with a few questions and a later check out. Breakfast is plentiful though the hot selection is fairly limited - I recommend the fruit salad!... More

We only stayed one night and it was fine. Location meant we could walk everywhere which was the idea. Parking is in a public car park around a five minute walk away. Bug bear of the Mercure chain for me is the lack of decent toiletries - a one size fits all generic tube of shampoo/shower gel fixed to the... More

I stayed here during the Italy vs Belgium game and the hotel made a really poor effort to make us comfortable in any way. It was a weekend and they do not open their bar on weekends... I couldn't even order water to the room at night. Seriously? The rooms were tiny, with no windows that open so no fresh... More
