we will be in lyon in first week november for 10 days. my husband and I would be coming here after spending a week in annecy. (from Lyon, we would be going on to brussels, then to amsterdam and fly back.) i would greatly appreciate comments/opinions on my hotel shortlist.
hotel des celestins
grand hotel des terreaux
globe et cecil
we are in our forties, love arts, design and architecture. and enjoy seeing the world at our pace. do not look for very luxurious places to stay. cental location and ease of using public transportation is important. we prefer not to be in touristy-heart of the city, but close enough for easy walks to sights. budget would be under $175.
from Lyon,we also plan to take daytrips by train ( still researching in the forum archives and else where on places to see in the region around lyon). so perhaps be closer to train station?(although not right near station).
i would really appreciate your opinion/thoughts on these hotels... and of course, other recommendations are most welcome!!!
