We choose this hotel because we wanted to be close to la Gare de Lyon based on the booking.com reviews.
It is indeed really well located, close to Lyon, Austerlitz and at a relatively walking distance of the city center, which is great.
However, for the price, the hotel lacks a bit of something.
Indeed the staff is very friendly, and you are nicely received to a room that has everything you need, a clean and well-equipped bathroom, a nice and really comfortable bed, good wifi connection and chocolate and water.
That is all good.
However, it has other details. The room is small and the carpet is not very clean, the breakfast is not included, you are supposed to have a daily bottle of water, but we stayed 3 nights and got it only once, and the elevator smelt very bad.
These are not important matters, so if the hotel has ~80 euros/night it would have been the best ever, if it was 100 it would still have been super good, totally recommended. But we paid close to 200 euros/night. If only the breakfast was included and the water was in fact delivered, it still would have been an awesome deal. Without that, it feels that the booking.com score (higher than 9) is undeserved.
