We stayed here as part of a conference in October. It is across the river from the Congress center, which is about a 15 minute walk. That “convenience” is probably the best thing about the hotel - it is definitely not a four star property. The rooms are very small, and the bathroom is quite odd – it looks like a prefabricated “module” that was dropped into the room. The towels are rather threadbare.
There are train tracks behind the hotel a ways, and even if on the opposite side, you can hear trains passing by, sometimes very early in the morning. A colleague staying on the train tracks side said it was quite disturbing.
The hotel is not on any public transit route, so if you want to go to the city center or vieux Lyon, etc, you will need to take a taxi, which the front desk will call for you. Taxis will arrive fairly quickly. I probably would choose a different hotel next time, for quite a few reasons, but convenience to the center of the city and historical sites would be important.
