If you travel by train this Mercure is located right next to Perrache train station. However, it is still a 9-min train ride to and from Part Dieu but there are connections several times an hour. There is also a metro stop attached to the train station so it's very convenient to Bellecour and the old city. The building is 19th century art nouveau so rooms have high ceilings and French windows that open. The superior double room I booked was very roomy and the bathroom was a fair size. I didn't hear much train noise once the windows were closed. During the August heat wave the air con was up to par and kept the room comfortably cool. There was no safe in the room so had to keep valuables in the hotel safe at the front desk. The continental breakfast buffet was adequate but nothing special. Staff was friendly enough and helpful, but keep a copy of French dictionary handy just in case you need extra linen and toiletteries as some staff are not very fluent in English. Wireless internet is available at different rates (e.g. 10 euros for 3 hours). Would stay there again next time in Lyon.
