Nice modern hotel, appeared to be very clean. Small but adequate room and good bathroom. However had no sleep due to bed bugs. I tried to sweep them off mattress. Some like small brown beetles, others almost colourless. Wouldn't risk staying here again but may be its confined to one room as there are some very good reviews about the hotel on this site

This hotel was highly recommended in several guide books including the well known French one Le guide du routard. Comfortable room with large shower area. Plenty of towel rails which is unusual in a small hotel. Very good breakfast with piping hot coffee all the time. Breakfast consisted of a generous amount of bread and a variety of jams and honey together with cheese and yoghurt. The manager and his wife could not have been more helpful. On a plan he marked about half a dozen restaurants including one called Abel which was excellent both in terms of the quality of the food and value for money. Free wi fi was handy. The manager was prepared to put some sandwiches I had bought into the fridge overnight for my onward journey to Chartres the next day. I stayed 4 nights and thought the hotel was good value for money.It is not luxurious but it is very clean and comfortable. I will definitely be staying there on my next visit.

Room Tip: If possible ask for an interior courtyard facing room. Traffic noise was not a problem though as the...

This hotel is in a good location right next to the Perrache train station. It's within walking distance to most of what is worth seeing in Lyon. The room was fairly small and basic, but clean and comfortable with air conditioning. The day we arrived, we needed to find a gas station before we could return our rental car. The gentleman working at the front counter went out of his way to find the nearest service station and even called them to ensure that they were open as it was Bastille day and many things were closed. Great staff.

Hotelo is a modern hotel located very near Perrache train/metro station. The room was very small but extremely clean and modern. This is a good option if you're looking for budget accomm near transport. If you're there in December a Christmas market in Place Carnot is approx 100m away.

The location, while not the best, is still conveniently located right next to the Perrache station. 2 stops (if you're too lazy to walk) away from Bellecour. So really, you can't really complain about the location.

The hotel itself may look somewhat non too impressive from the outside and so is the surrounding area, but this is really not a five star hotel you're looking at.

However, the room itself is very clean, modern and has everything you need. Tv, free wifi. Probably not as spacious as i'd have liked but it's comfortable enough.

What really deserves praise is its service. It's really out of the way type of service. The guy whom I thought was the owner (who turned out to be just a regular employee) was super helpful. When I told him I had to get to Paul Bocuse's restaurant the following day for dinner, he told me no problem and went online and detailed the bus and tram timing on a piece of paper with all the timetables and time required to get to and fro the restaurant. Out of the way service. Not only that. His service during the next day's breakfast was also impeccable.

Really fantastic service which I've never experienced before. For that he made the hotel five stars for me. Too bad I didn't ask for his name.

The hotel is located right near the train station of Perrache which is convenient (make sure not to get off at Part Diex) and is very nicely decorated. It has air conditioning and everything is how it should be. However, the person who greeted us when we came in was extremely rude to us our entire stay. There is a curfew of 1am and you have to surrender your key everytime you leave the hotel. Very weird. We felt that we were staying at our parents house. He would make rude comments and was not helpful AT ALL. If you can digest him then you will have a nice stay.
