I chose this hotel because of our familiarity of the brand, and because of there excellent rate given for a three night stay in their website (heavily discounted). If you're familiar with the brand then this hotel gives you exactly what you're expecting.
The hotel is in the 7th Arrondisement of Lyon and is near he A7 motorway that passes through town. We were driving back from Provence and found this hotel with no difficulty at all. It has a secure car park, but it is €16.50 per night for the privelage. We left the car there for our entire stay so I don't know about in and out privelages. There is a tram line outside that takes you straight to Parraches station and La Part-Dieu shopping centre and station, but you'll need to change to get to be old town and presque-île.
The room is excellent and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable (it also has a sofa bed) and the bathroom was modern with everything you'll need? Exactly what you'd expect from Novotel.
The restaurant was ok, but it's a little overpriced for what's on offer. We had a club sandwich and chips for €14 each, which is a bit steep. There are much, much better deals in St Jean in the old town.
Breakfast is excellent with plenty of choice. I'd be even happier if it was a little more reasonably priced.
Overall, we'd stay in this hotel again if offered the same deal. It was being used by families while we were there so perfectly acceptable for holiday groups, but its primary audience is clearly businesses.
