“This hotel is in an ideal location”
Reviewed 14 November 2011

This is a very nice hotel in an excellent location. It is on the edge of the old city and a walk across the bridge to the new city. The room was clean and comfortable. The room we had only had a jacuzzi tub which would be very difficult for an older person to climb up and over. There was a hand held shower unit in the tub but very awkward to use. They also need better hair dryers. My suggestion would be to ask for a room with a shower unit. Other than that the hotel was great and I would stay there again because of its location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the river for a view, the rooms in the back do not have a view and you can...

I really wanted to be in the old city in Lyon, so it took a while to decide whether I really want to go to this hotel, because I was with friends and have to make the decision. The hotel is perfectly situated at the Quai of the Saon river: ask for a superior room with riverview. Not a luxe hotel, but just go here for the location and the price. I went by car, and I could even park my car. Everything is at walking distance: you should do a "traboules" walking tour: I never even knew this excisted!

The best feature of this hotel is its location, near Vieux Lyon, which is reachable on foot, 5 minutes-walk.
The rooms are very nice, our room had a big fireplace (not functioning), which was a nice feature. The hotel itself is nicely decorated and the breakfast room is interesting.
The walls are a bit thin, and one can hear other people flushing their toilets in their rooms:(

Apart from that, a very good value for money and a great location!

Great small hotel right on the Soane River - Only 37 rooms - ours was enormous with windows that actually opened.

Room Tip: Really large room - not just a sleeping box -

The hotel is located by the banks of the river and has lovely views and it is a 5-15 minute walk to the centre of the city.
The room was good size with a clean decent bathroom. The hotel also offers parking with a small extra cost.
Although the staff's English was very basic, they were very helpful and pleasant.

Located right on the river, Le Phenix Hotel was a nice place to stay. The room was nicely decorated and we loved the huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub and double sinks. The only downside was that our room faced an interior lounge and didn't have windows to outside.
