Reviewed 11 August 2012

At the end of a day's ride on our moto we arrived at Hotel Iris without reservation and the staff was welcoming and gave us the perfect moto parking place. We found that Hotel Iris is perfectly rated as a 2-star hotel in Europe. Amenities are few but the hotel is in a fantastic location. The hotel seems to be under an ongoing renovation process. Looking past works-in-progress, the hotel has great bones. The staircase going to the room floors is older and pretty. If you are looking for a superior lodging experience you might want to look elsewhere but as a place to stay while exploring Lyon Hotel Iris is the right choice. The place is clean enough, very simple and the staff is super nice. One negative for us was the breakfast. We have read other Hotel Iris TripAdvisor reviews since arriving back home and we did not receive the breakfast others wrote about. All-in-all, that's ok. We had coffee and croissant before hitting the road again.

Reviewed 11 August 2009

The room was barely okay althoug both my husband and I got a lot of bites during the night - not sure what kind of bugs..the room was very noisy and looked into the most disgusting ally. the courtyard we had to go through to get to our room was filthy - a scooter covered in cobwebs and pigeon poop! The worst thing was that the woman at the office told us we were welcome to leave our luggage at the hotel behind the desk as our train was leaving 6:30pm. She assured us that the hotel would be open for us to collect our luggage and that the only time the hotel was closed was beween noon and 2pm. Later in the afternoon it started to thunder and rain so we headed to the hotel to collect our luggage around 4 in hopes of catching an earlier train home. When we arrived at the hotel it was closed! there was a note stuck to the inside of window in the door but it was facing into the office so we could not read it! We waited until 5 thinking she would be there by 5 as we had said we would be back at 5 for our luggage...still nobody came at 5. We tried to phone several times but no answer - at first there was a recorded message but then nothing...the people at the cafe across the street were very nice and tried to help but to no avail. Finally around -:6:10 some other guests were heading to their room and we asked them if they knew how we could get our luggage - they didn't but tried to phone again and finally the woman answered and eventually came to the door to let us in. she looked drugged and like she just woke up!! she had nothing to say and just looked stunned so we took our bags and ran to the metro to try to catch our train which of course we missed. It is very poorly run. three sets of people arrived while we were waiting - they had their guidebooks and were looking for accommodation but all turned and left as the office was closed! Don't stay here!
