A perfectly nice hotel in a great location for sightseeing - right on the Saone River in the Old Town, a short walk from everything in both Vieux Lyon and the Presque'ile section (where the better restaurants are). The room, while small, was clean and adequately furnished. The bathroom was recently renovated with good toiletries. The lobby was charming and had a bar that was open most of the day where one could get snacks. Normally, given the reasonable price, I would give it a "4" rating, but it gets only a "3" for 3 missteps. (1) The breakfast is very plain, considering they charge 13 euros; (2) the windows in our room faced an alley and were not soundproofed, so each morning we were awakened at 5 a.m. by the sound of people putting out trash cans; and (3), most unforgivably, the desk forgot to give us a scheduled wake-up call one morning, resulting in a one-hour delay in our day. Luckily, we were not catching a train or plane that day.
