“Great location”
Reviewed 21 March 2010

The location of the hotel is excellent. All sightseeing and shopping and restaurants are within walking distance, as well as the opera house. Metro station is also rather close, which enables easy access to airport (metro to Grange Blanche and continuing with airport). My friends came with an earlier flight and taxi from the airport was over 50 euros. So taking the airport bus to Grange Blanche and continuing with metro to Bellecourt saved me a lot of money.

The room was larger than I would get in Paris for even a higher price. I slept very well in the quiet room.

Bathroom was otherwise good but taking a shower meant a wet floor.

Breakfast was okay, mostly continental (not very appealing eggs and sausages were also offered).

All staff was friendly.

I will stay here if I come back to Lyon.

The Boscolo B4 Grand Hotel in Lyon is the perfect demonstration of how the number of stars is not really reporting the quality of the hotel.
Sure, it is very well located, in the middle of the city centre, but, apart of that, you get very little for what you pay.
Everything needs refurbishment, something (doors, windows, heater) a serious one. The room in general was uncomfortable and quite small.
Average cleanliness.
The staff was not that helpful,and for sure didn't seem to be willing to.

Having read some other reviews I was delighted on arrivaing at the hotel to find a very well apointed reception and lounge area. Despite reception having no record of our booking made through an agent 6 days earlier we were very promptly checked-in and allocated rooms which proved to be very spacious for a city centre hotel, well appointed with good bathroom facilities and in a good state of repair. Well fitted secondary double glazing provided a very quiet sleeping environment.
The breakfast was more the normal continental affair with a good selection of fruit, yoghurt, cereal and pasttries and the addition of hot omelettes and frankfurters.
I can highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a centrally located hotel in Lyon

Great location (Presqu'ile), overlooking the Rhone and close to shopping, cafes, bars, etc. The hotel is well maintained with lovely interiors and great staff. Staff were helpful with information concerning taxis, directions, etc. Upon arrival we were given a free upgrade to a junior suite. The included breakfast was very nice with lots of choice - baguettes, pastries, cheeses, eggs, sausages, great coffee, juices. The bed was very comfortable. The television was big with many channels. Would stay here again.

A very mixed experience.
Firstly the staff were absolutely fantastic- helping us with everything to do with our stay like booking restaurants etc. The room was alright but not quite as glamorous as the website would lead you to believe! The breakfast room was small and the breakfast so simple that it would have suited a one-star hotel better. The quality of the food was extremely poor, and the staff looked embarrassed about it. All in all, you can tell that this hotel was once great, but they have let it slip and it now looks tired and well-worn. We went on a fairly cheap deal, but were still disappointed as the website made it look ten times better than it really was.
