Appart'Hotel Bioparc

Reviewed 9 May 2013

this is a nice, no so big and clean appartments hotel on university grounds with a very kind staff.
A metro stop (Laennec) is on a 5 minutes waking distance.
The rooms are confortable, clean, not very luxurious but functional.
The breakfast is sufficient.
It is very good for a short functional stop, without the wish for luxury.

A great base if used as a serviced apartment with plenty of room, but not quite so hot if used as a short stay hotel. No restaurant facilities - and Lyon seems to have an aversion to opening its restaurants (even its other hotel restaurants) on a Sunday evening.

Staff were super friendly and efficient, well prepared with takeaway menus of all styles and pockets (not just limited to the expected fare) and a map of the city to direct you to recommended restaurants. Not quite a concierge service, but for a limited service hotel, great nonetheless.

On reflection if I was staying longer, the flexibility of aparthotel, and its location, would make this a good choice.

We stayed at this hotel at July 2012 as a family with two children ( one is 1.5 year old). The hotel was nice, the staff was very friendly. The rooms were moderately clean, the best thing about this hotel was the kitchen and kitchen equipments in the rooms. There were a coffee-machine, refrigerator, dishwasher, mini oven, and cups, forks, spoon etc..I could prepare baby foods easily there and not have to give her fast foods. The metro train station was not so clouse, but not so far away either. I can recommend this hotel for everyone.

Room Tip: The family rooms are more comfortable

The hotel is in a very calm and quiet neighborhood. Not in the city center, but with a fast and easy connection, either by metro or car.

The staff is very nice and helpful.

The dimensions of the room (suite) is suitable for a family of 4. However, the room furniture is a bit old and below 4* standards.

The hot water is supplied by a individual electrical system (each room has their own system); if the 4 people get a shower in a row, it's very likely that the last one don't get hot water.

I and my colleagues were on a business trip in Lyon and lived in this hotel for 3 days.
The hotel is very clean, rooms are nice, the bed comfortable.There are free Wi-Fi. It's a non-smoking hotel. At the rooms there are a kitchen where you can see: coffee-mashin, kettle, dishwasher, crockery and frige. The bathroom has a bathtub, but the plumbing (shower) is not new.
In hotel there are very friendly staff. They are friendly at any time of the day))) and they clean the rooms every day. The breakfasts are variety of products: juices, yogurts, cheeses, pastries, jams, lots of different tea, eggs and coffee.
The hotel is located close to the major hospitals of the city. The district is quite deserted, we could not find a place for dinner. But! To the metro it’s just 10 minutes walking. Next to the metro is Mac’Donalts. And at the metro is very easy to access to the city center, where many cafes and restaurants.
We were very pleased.

Room Tip: All are the same.

We have originally booked this apart'hotel for three nights but could not stay more than two. We had problems with a shortage of water in the middle of the day, lack of hot water that eventually led us to move from one room to another in the middle of the night. When we got to the other room we soon figured out that it was also lacking of hot water and its dish washing machine was completely out of order (water overflowed through the room floor).

I do not recommend this hotel -- it does not worth the price:
- Bad maintenance (need serious repair)
- Bad cleaning service (sheets and dishes were dirty)

At least I got a refund for the third night.

Located near the main hospital, it was quite difficult to find the entrance at first to the hotel at first. Outdoor parking is free and underground parking will cost you 5 euros a night. The carpark has a security guard there 24 hours a day.

Stayed there for 2 nights, the room was modern, clean and simple with a mini kitchenette which came in handy for storing food. The bed was nice and supportive, great after a full day's tour of the city. Hotel is located about 15mins by Metro from the city centre 'Hotel De Ville' station.

Friendly staff that spoke very good english. Highly recommend this place if you are on a budget and want something simple and comfortable.
