Spent 5 nights at this hotel and I can only say good things. Very modern style rooms with comfortable beds. Bathroom is small but functional and a nice rainfall shower. Probably because of the modern style there is little storage in the room if you like to unpack your bags.
Breakfast was included in our fare and it was very nice. The hotel staff was always ready to help, friendly and attentive.
The hotel is nicely located with walking distance (about 15 minutes) to the nice compact downtown area where there are TONS of restaurants and bars. After my 5 day stay I came to the conclusion that it is almost impossible to go wrong with Lyon restaurants :-)It is also close to the train station and to the Lafayette shopping center. We travelled everyday to the CCC convention center by taking the C4 bus just around the corner and it was a 10 minute bus ride for 2 euros.
For those who like to run, there is a nice path right on the shore of the Rhone rive that goes about 5km one way.
I would definitely stay there again.
