Picking up on some of the other reviews, this is an old building right next to the station now modernised albeit having retained many original features. We booked last minute (2 days) and got two double rooms for just over £60 each. there are two entrances, we chose the lower one thinking it was the only way in - ignore this and head for the hire car area, drive through this across the front of the station and there is free parking at the main reception.
Bar is Ok if a little small, but the 'piece de resisitance' is the dining room - a real throw back to past glories and as ever, the Accor breakfast was ideal and in great surroundings. In the evening, we walked out of the hotel, over the station concourse towards Lyon centre where we found a park with restaurants - ideal. The rooms were a little austentatious for my liking but bathrooms good and air con worked well. The wide corridors and rather antique feel to the common parts complimented the modern renovated rooms.
To cap it all, it was two minutes off the motorway albeit a bit tricky to find - the satnav came in very useful! - and two minutes to get back on..
