Booked a "Cosy" room for a few nights for a city-break in Lyon. For me, the place is all about value-for-money. It's a prime spot, right in the middle of Presque-Ile, about two blocks from Hotel de Ville, and right next to the Saone river and the Quai de Bond that crosses over to the edge of the old town. Tons of restaurants and bars immediately surrounding the hotel, and your walking distance from many more bars and restos just north of the hotel around Rue Martiniere.
The decor in the hotel, as implied on their website, is funky. The hallways are blacked out, with lots of aluminum panels. Almost looks more like a club. Our room, however, was really large by French standards, very clean, and had two big windows overlooking the street.
Don't expect much in terms of amenities--tiny TV, only the French channels, and basic toiletries. I forgot some toothpaste and a few things, but there is a grocery store literally in front of the hotel (Franprix chain), where you can pick up anything you need.
Reception is open all night, and when I had questions for the staff, they were helpful. No problems at all.
Fresh copies of L'Equipe downstairs each morning, which was an added bonus.
If you're in Lyon to see the town, hit up some restaurants, and don't plan to lounge around in your room very much, this is a great option. I'll be back.
