“My best stay in Lyon ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2013

I travel to Lyon quite often for work. It was my first time in Hotel Bayard Bellecour but it certainly won't be the last one! The location is great. In the heart of Lyon's center, the rooms were of particular style that truly reminded one that you were in France, and the prices quite reasonable. However the highlight of the hotel and the main reason for which I will go back to this hotel is the staff! Everyone was so willing to help and explain! We can't thank them enough! Especially Ludmilla!!! :)

Room Tip: the rooms that look outside at Place Bellecour are sunnier but I guess the rooms that look in the at...

Location, location, location: you can't get nearer to Lyons city centre than this!
Rooms are reasonably sized. One bed (out of two beds) was old and had a pretty old mattress.
The room was clean, bathroom was good, with a nice warm shower.
Staff were very friendly.
Now, cooling the room can be a problem. There was no aircon. Opening a window during the early hours was an invitation to the local mosquitos to come pay us a visit. We were here in April and had only a couple of pretty warm days, so it was fine for now, but I can imagine that in summertime, this may be a problem.
Other then that, it's great value!

Wow, really nice location, one step away from the large place Bellecour in the city center, to the north of the Ainay district where my wife and I did a lot of shopping. Room was well decorated with a "designer" feel, we loved it! Good sleep quality although we were close to the street, but wasn't an issue at all.

Room Tip: Ask for the brown room with view to the Bellecour place, can't remember the number

Hotel Bayard is extremely well situated for a short stay to explore Lyon. The rooms are simply decorated but clean and comfortable with TV and wifi. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. For those driving to Lyon there is an underground car park under Place Bellecour the pedestrian exit is in the centre of Place Bellecour which is only 200m from the hotel. The metro is also a similar distance. All in all this hotel is excellent value for money and I would happily recommend it.

situated in a perfect location, it's very suggestive.
Close to the old town with typical furnitures and clean bathroom. Dogs are welcome (8euros supplement)
There's free wifi and a good continental breakfast not included (for 12 euros you can also have breakfast in one of the bakeries in the nearby)

This is a fairly typical two star hotel. It's a bit eclectic, with some rooms a lot nicer than others. It's in an older building, no elevator so you have to walk up a flight of stairs. Not a problem if you can do it, but if you aren't fit and have a humungo suitcase, it's going to bother you. I'm not sure why it only has two stars, as it has all the amenities and location of much more expensive hotels. Sometimes the lack of something not important can mean the loss of a star (like one gorgeous place we stayed that had no television so only rated one star. Really!)

The staff speak good English if that's needed (we speak French so not an issue) and were helpful and pleasant. The hotel is right on Place Bellecour so the metro and tourism office are right across the street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an outside view; ours looked into an inner (very small) court.
