The best thing about this hotel is the location. The river is a short walk away where you can go for a walk or have a drink on one of the boat bars along the river side. Also it is a lovely walk into the centre of Lyon and not too far to the old town. There is a supermarket next to the hotel where you can but food at cheap prices. The hotel has a gym although it doesn't have a pool and it is in a very central built up
Area surrounded by private residences.

The rooms are nice but minimalist and basic and the beds are very comfy and I slept like a baby. The addition of a window in the room
That actually opens is great too so that horrible groggy air conditioning feeling can be blown away.

I've stayed here a few times now and can say that I don't mind coming back.

Stayed May 2014, travelled on business

Reviewed 5 April 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights and was upgraded to a 'privilege' room. Definitely enjoyed my stay - highlights of the hotel include the following:

-very modern, clean & spacious rooms
-free internet with good connectivity/speed
-small gym was nicely done
-pool is also very new and clean (with whirpool jets)
-location is quite good: close to Part Dieu train station but far enough away to be close to the Old Town and in a little more upscale district
-easy to walk to all the sights in the city - the Old Town is basically about a 7-10 minute walk across the bridge
-friendly and helpful staff

Definitely recommend and would stay here again in a heartbeat. On the weekend the area is a bit dead but safe and you just need to walk a few blocks or across the bridge to shopping/restaurant areas of Lyon.
