In August end we went to Lyon- Saint Gervais- Chamonix and stayed 1 night in this beautiful hotel. The mail reasons for selection was economic, excellent location( 5 mins from rail station, 1 min from airport Tram station). We arrived here from Lyon airport by Rhone Express tram. For this tram we took the advance e-tickets( 13.5 euro for adult) through Internet. It took about 30 mins to reach the last stop Par dieu(rail station) and hotel is just diagonally opposite to tram station.
There are 3 hotels in the same building- Mercure, Ibis Budget and at the end is our hotel.
We took a triple room (no 405) and were very pleased to have a nice and big room. It had a very big TV(probably 40”)
I feel we made the perfect decision by staying at this fantastic budget hotel for 1 night. The Hotel is located right in the heart of new Lyon and everything is available at your doorstep. Just outside the hotel , there are plenty of restaurants, shopping malls. The main railway station is 5 mins walk. The rail station has lot of food stalls including famous Paul bakery.
The breakfast meets the requirement. It had lots of fruits.
At the reception tea/coffee and cookies was always available free of cost.
Now come to the staff- I must appreciate that they were very helpful and friendly. The receptionist went out of her way to help us and gave us all the maps, directions and guided us in all respects.
The Wi-Fi speed was good.
The old Lyon where we had seen Cathedral, basilica, Roman ampi theatre and Gardens is only a short bus journey. We went by Bus C3 from the bus stop near the hotel to Old city. It took only 15 mins and fare was 2 euros.
We also kept our luggage after we checked out.
Overall we liked this hotel and will come back if we come to Lyon again.
