On first sighting, it looks like a pre loved Grand Hotel. A bit tired looking, but with character. The dining restaurant has the original Art Nouveau interiors I would think it was originally a Grand Hotel servicing the trains into Lyon. Opened in the early 1900s.
The twin rooms were huge with spacious bathroom. The largest rooms I've seen for the price.
The service was excellent. The bar looked a bit short staffed, but there was always someone there in a minute. (Think they doubled up for Room Service,) Always pleasant and helpful. This included all staff and Front Desk. Nothing was too much trouble.
Might not suit some people who want 'flash' and 'new', but I found it excellent!
