Mercure Lyon Centre Chateau Perrache
Ranked #42 of 194 Hotels in Lyon
Reviewed 3 July 2011

A very comfortable hotel - where everything works just as it should. Air conditioned rooms were a godsend - and the aircon was excellent. Location was ideal - just a shame that the car-park is so small. This is the second time that I've stayed there - and although we didn't eat in the hotel this time, on the previous visit the food was excellent.

Old Hotel, bit creaky round the edges, so it is certainly not plastic like some chain hotels. But full of charm.

Location is good, by the Part Dieu trainstation ... easy walking access to the main attractions once you have negotioned getting over the busy road.

Price is ok, but coming from the UK, i alway find euro hotels are not cheap.

Breakfast is good though, especially after a hangover

We arrived at 2pm and front desk told us to wait for "10 minutes" while our room was prepared. 45 minutes later as they checked in other guests I politely asked again if we could get the key for our rooms. I was yelled at and told it was cleaning crew's issue, not receptions issue.

The building itself is ancient and has had only superficial restoration work done. As a consequence any minimal movement from neighbors results in very loud noises in your room.

The lobby area has this vaporizer air freshener machine (not a spray, a huge smoking machine) that emits a disgusting scent 24 hours a day. I wanted to throw up every time I went through the lobby. Also, the lobby was always dirty with left over bottles and cups on every table while front desk staff had nothing to do. See attached images.

this hotel met our expectations for mercure standards and the reception hall spectacular unfortunately finding the hotel was difficult
giving the exit No 39b off the A6 from paris is paramount and a detailed map would help
private indoor parking is good but with no direct access to the hotel but entrance is close

Fisrt impressions aren't great as the hotel is by a railway station with some nearby ugly buildings but you are not too far from a park and some good shopping and restaurants. There is also indoor and outdoor parking available. The double glazed windows and shutters mean that you don't hear the noise of the city outside. It's more like a good three star hotel and the titles grand and chateau are a little optimistic

We had a surprisingly great time here. Awesome main st and markets east of the station. Some dodgy characters around the station but that is usual. We spent two days their and enjoyed our room and breakfast. For longer stays we'd recommend somewhere more central
