Enjoyed two nights here during my visit to Lyon months ago. A modern hotel located in the commercial area with high rise office buildings around. Within walking distance to the business district, train station and not far from the river bank.
Our room was bright and spacious with two beds ( Queen and Double.)Not much a view from the window as there was another building next to the hotel, but natural lights managed to come in through the corner.
Modestly furnished in the tone of creamy white, grey and red with good lighting. Major decor was a huge poster on the wall. Room was well equipped with coffee maker, mini bar and safe all in one place.
Washroom was in good size, modern with adjustable shower head. The black and white graphic on the glass reminded me of the black and white lion statue at the front door of the hotel entrance.
Breakfast was included in our package. It was served in the restaurant downstairs. Nothing too special but good choices of jam, sauce and cheese.
The best part of this stay was a nice walk to the river and bridges after dinner, relaxed and comfortable.
The only setback was the computer at the business centre, main floor. It was in french system and very straight in time control. It would turn off atomically before you finish reading your first email...I had trouble to read the full message from my friend who was supposed to meet me in Paris.
A young staff from the the reception desk came over and tried hard to help.
Yet the the email system was locked in a way nothing we can do. He apologized and I gave up trying again. Anyway, I appreciated his eagerness in helping.
