We stayed at the Novotel for a long weekend in late November. We chose this hotel based on it's location......next door to the main train station (Gare Part Dieu) with its easy access to/from the airport via the Rhonexpress tramway. Staff were very friendly, room was clean and largish with a sofa (bed) for added comfort. Great soundproofing considering it is right at the main rail line. The continental style breakfast was plentiful with a few hot items as well as the usual cakes, pastries, cereals, pancakes, charcuterie and cheeses. Whilst it is a 30 minute walk to the Presqu'ile area and further on to the old Town, the transport options are plentiful from right outside the hotel (bus, tram, Metro) which will whisk you to the main areas of the city in no time. There is also the added benefit of the city's largest shopping mall only a 3 minute walk away.
It is certainly worth visiting this fascinating city with its long history of great food (eat in a Bouchon), fascinating hidden alleyways (find and walk through some traboules), great views from the Fourviere and Croix Rousse hills, wonderful market produce (have a walk through the Les Halles Paul Bocuse) and the beautiful Musee des Beaux Arts.
I would highly recommend staying at the Novotel, especially if on a short trip to Lyon.
