We spent a pleasant Thursday and Friday night here mid-November. Following the advice of other Trip Advisors, we asked for - and got - a renovated room away from the lifts. This was reasonably sized, correctly heated and had a sliding door onto a terrace overlooking the river. For the first time ever in my experience of standard hotel rooms, the w.c. was separate from the bathroom, a good idea. The hotel's strongest feature is probably its spa - a decent sized indoor swimming pool and outside a series of bubble baths linked by channels where you can swirl around in hot water even on a cool November morning. We also had a very satisfactory meal in the hotel restaurant, and the staff were uniformly pleasant, one of the receptionists being particularly helpful in helping us organise our visit to the sights of Lyon.
The calm of the hotel stems partly from the fact that it some distance from the old town and commercial centre, a 25 euro taxi ride from Part-Dieu TGV station. We became quite expert on the 10 minute no. 40 bus service to and from La Pêcherie in the old town, which stops right outside the hotel, and keeps going - infrequently - till late at night. A trolley bus ride takes you from La Pêcherie to Part-Dieu station.
