A small, well run and very welcoming hotel (the staff are first rate - polite and helpful) with generous, comfortable and recently refurbished rooms. Thanks to the combination of double and secondary glazing the rooms are also very quiet, even those at the front of the hotel which have a wonderful outlook over the river. The location is excellent, right on the edge of Vieux Lyon, with lots of interesting places to see and good places to eat within 10 minutes easy walking (the hotel's recommendations regarding restaurants proved very reliable). It also has the advantage of being near the terminus both of trolleybus route C3 and of bus route S1, which means you can access most parts of Lyon very easily including the main train stations Lyon Part Dieu (C3), Parrache (S1). Add to that proximity to the water bus - the Vaporetto - serving Bellecour and the Confluence (a landing stage is in front of the hotel), and you would be hard pressed to find a better positioned hotel whether for leisure or for business. Good value as well.
Tip :- cars are not encouraged in Lyon but the public transport system is clean, cheap, reliable and quick. Individual tickets can be bought for 2 euros on any bus, tolleybus or metro, last for one hour and can be used on all forms of transport if used within the hour. Discounted bundles of 10 can be bought from the TCL outlets.
