Hotel 1ere Etape
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Vaulx en Velin
Reviewed 15 April 2009

There is no reason to stay in Vaulx-en-Velins unless, like us, your car breaks down there and your breakdown insurance company puts you up there or unless you have an interest in the architecture of social housing. Vaulx-en-Velins has few distinguishing features other than its proximity to the Autoroute, a nearby travellers' camp and a total lack of anywhere to eat, except for a take-away pizza/empanada shop. The hotel is basic but unlike Formule 1 at least has en suite bathrooms. Our room had a very uncomfortable double bed and a bunk bed positioned over it, to bang your head on. We could only move around when one of us sat on the bed or left the room. My son's bathroom had a broken extractor fan which only stopped whistling when I dismantled it. There are no keys or keycards, only a code-operated lock on rooms, front door and the outside gate. The drinks machine did not work. Worse, after 10pm, there is no receptionist, porter or manager on site to deal with any problems that arise. In our case this included the boiler exploding at 5am setting off all the fire alarms and causing a partial evacuation of the building (some guests decided not to bother). In its favour, a man comes in to bring fresh bread for the breakfast 'buffet' and the staff - when there - were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is quiet and there is wi-fi. But there are lots of chain hotels around Lyon and for the price, you can probably do far better and find something nearer the centre of Lyon or elsewhere on your route.
