“Great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We were grateful that the hotel checked us in before midday on our arrival, and were delighted to be informed that we had been upgraded from a studio to an apartment. But upon reaching the apartment we discovered that it was set up with a mezzanine for the bedroom, while the bathroom was downstairs, which is not to our liking. For the sake of one night we didn't bother going back to reception, but just be warned if you are staying there in the future and would have difficultly with (reasonably steep) stairs.

We stayed here for four nights and found the location to be perfect -- close to the train station, the Metro and having Les Halles across the street was fantastic. We reserved a one bedroom apartment but did not know that the bedroom and shower would be up a steep flight of stairs with the living room, kitchen and toilet downstairs. We went back and explained to the excellent desk staff that we were older and did not think we could handle the stairs. They politely moved us into a studio apartment which was actually a small European sized hotel room with a small kitchen attached -- only one person at a time could move around in the apartment! We were told that the one bedroom apartments depicted on their web page are rarely available for short term rental since they are usually being used by people staying long term. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast and the staff but I don't know if we would stay here again due to the size of the apartment. We had the fantastic Les Halles food court across the street, but did not buy any food to eat in the apartment because we would have had to eat it sitting on the bed or standing at the kitchen counter. Also please be advised that the apartments are not air conditioned. There was a fan in the closet, but there are no screens on the windows so our room was always full of bugs.

Stayed here for four nights in April and as this was our first visit to the Citadines, we were unsure as to what to expect. Allocated an amazing one bedroom apartment with a mini kitchen including a dishwasher, toiletries in the bathroom, along with robes and slippers.

The hotel was full but the only time we saw it 'busy' was at breakfast on a couple of mornings but the rest of the time it was fairly quiet. Continental breakfast is served downstairs every morning from 0700, with a variety of bread, ham and cheese and excellent coffee and a selection of teas.

The Aparthotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the Part Dieu train station and is close to a shopping centre including Carrefour and almost opposite is the Paul Boucose Les Halles food hall, with an amazing selection of local food and wines. Great to see the French people enjoying oysters and a glass of wine at 10am on a Friday morning - love their way of life!

Would definitely return to the Citadines in Lyon next time we visit and would look at other locations for this chain in other parts of Europe.

I had a working time of two weeks in Lyon and I opted for this choice. The room was very well silenced and comfortable. The mini-flat has all I need for the stay: it was larger than a standard French hotel having also some facilities which improved my stay there. It was not a 'home' but the formula has a the services of a hotel with the freedom of a personal small house.

newly renovated, 10min walk from the train station and 15/20min walk from the historical city centre.
We stayed one night (I whish it was longer) in one of the one-bedroom mini-apartments on the top floor. The apartment layout is very nice, with a kitchenette fully equipped with a fridge, a cooker, a microwave, a kettle, plates and cutlery; a living room with sofa and flat screen TV, and a good-sized bathroom with shower. Then a white wooden staircase takes you upstairs, where the bedroom is. The room is a bit basic in terms of furniture and decoration, but it has everything you need. There's also a safe in the closet.
An ironing board and a hair dryer are available too.
The cleaning was flawless. No particular nice view from the window but we did not mind.
The only tricky part is the heating. There are autonomous radiators in the bathroom and in the living room, but because there are 2 levels, the heat goes mostly up to the bedroom and there is always a significant temperature difference between downstairs and upstairs.

Overall, a very pleasant stay and would definitely go back if visiting Lyon again.

This is our second visit to Lyon, FR because of close-by cities we wanted to see without renting a car. We chose the Citadines Apart-Hotel for their kitchenette, ease of transport and the price. We were lucky because we got there one day after renovations were completed that lasted for months. We foung the hotel to be very clean and the staff was very helpful. A rarety in France is to have 2 elevators with enough room for 2 passengers with full luggage. When we booked the hotel a couple of months before, we were surprised to see that the credit card was deducted immediatly. We found out later that this hotel does that because of the fixed special promo prices during reservations and is not refundable. I don't think we will do that again. All sort of things can happen before a trip and this was a real gamble.
Some negatives: There are no drawers in the room except the washroom (2 drawers to stuff his and hers). The cleaning of rooms is done only once a week unless you pay extra. Could not operate the Microwave because it was replaced and no instructions were left behind. That was fixed the next day. All electrical outlets were changed and we could not use our converter because it became obsolete. If you are planning to visit France, make sure your converter is up-to-date, better still, ask the hotel about their electrictal outlet. The ones we had were sunken in the wall and our converter of 3 years was not compatable.
The hotel has a laundry room that we found to be expensive. Five Euros to wash clothes and four to dry. That would be approx. $12.40 U.S.
Very good restaurant on St-Jean street in le Vieux-Lyon Le Laurencin housed in a 1528 building. Good food, good portions - 10 to 15 euros. worth it.

Room Tip: Studio Delux from 99 to 165 euros. Studio Club 151 to 207 euros. The latter includes breakfast and d...
