We spent 4 nights here, exploring Lyon and spending time with our daughter who is a student at the city's university. It is situated in the heart of Bellecour, a perfect spot for walking to the many attractions that Lyon has to offer.

Very well located in the old city, only a block from the Place Bellacour. Easy access to the metro. Walkable to anywhere in the old city. The hotel is clean and quiet. The staff was friendly. Good value. Not for you, if you want full service business hotel. Just a basic, well-run hotel in a great location.

This is a basic hotel without a lot of character, but it is professionally run, is clean, friendly, and meets all the important needs as a base for a visit to Lyon.
