“great location, very clean, helpful desk”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

Nice hotel, very clean, large and pretty bathrooms. The view from the 6th floor on the side is on the Basilique of Fourviere. On the 7th floor, the view is on some roofs. Overall nice view. The Junior suites have a view on the river Rhone but they do not have twin beds in them. The hotel is very close to the public transportation system and in a good neighborhood. Parking is a little tricky but we were able to find spots. The hotel keeps the hotel parking spots for the first 17 clients that show up. We did not use it. The employee at the desk was very nice and helpful and spoke many languages. He even recommended places to visit an hour and a half from Lyon (a medieval village named Peyrouge) and a section of the Route de Vienne that is entirely covered with fresco painting.

Room Tip: upper level standard rooms have a better view either on roofs or on the Basilique (on the side of th...

Very close to the centre and river with lots of good restaurants 10 mins walk away. Room comfy and staff friendly and helpful. Free wifi and tea/coffee/fridge in the room. Parking is a real problem in the vicinity so E16 overnight was a good investment with access to the garage interesting via a car lift - a first for me.

Very, very good in every regard. Staff, cleanliness, comfort, room facilities, breakfast, price and location. A heartbeat from the city centre but quiet as a country house.

We stayed for three nights. Very clean well decorated rooms. Location great for easy access to all major attractions by foot. Buffet breakfast very good. Service good as well. Pricing reasonable. Would stay here again as likely to return to Lyon to sample the excellent restaurants.

This hotel is located near the center of town. We arrived on a French holiday so parking was free on the surrounding streets. Hotel garage is a bit pricey at 16 euros a night. Typically, French don't eat breakfast but we found the buffet very nice with scrambled eggs and sausage. Downtown was about two kilometers walking distance. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was clean and quiet. Located in a neighborhood with no traffic

I stayed at this hotel during the May bank holiday weekend 2012. I stayed with family - we were in 2 twin rooms. The rooms were not huge but were comfortable and the en-suite bathrooms were clean and pleasant. The staff in the hotel were very helpful and spoke good English. The location of the hotel was within walking distance of the main attractions and there was a nice wine bar just round the corner. We travelled from the airport by the Rhone-Express and then took a taxi to the hotel but on the way back, we realised that the tram line was very close to the hotel, so we caught that back to the train station for a very reasonable 1.60 euro. We had read that the breakfast was expensive so we ate out at the Pomme du Pain for a very reasonable breakfast everyday. For 4 of us the cost was £230 for two nights which was extremely good value for the location and quality of the hotel. I would stay here again and recommend it to others. The reason I have not rated it 5 stars is that it was very hot at night and we had the thermostat on the lowest setting. If the windows were left open, it could be noisy, there was no shower cap in the bathroom nor mirror in the main bedroom but these were minor points only and would not prevent me from staying here again.

This hotel is badly in need of refurbishment. Everywhere looks tired and shabby. The carpets are worn and the hotel needs a makeover and quickly. The white doors are yellow. Must be 10 years since anything done here and it reflects on the staff to some extent. Front desk were great but the room was dusty. It was not a particurlarly cheap stay but I guess Lyon is a more expensive city and breakfast was bordering on shambolic due to lack of space. Come on Great Western. This is not up to your usual standards.

Room Tip: i guess all rooms are in need of the makeover. The bed was comfortable but no one could get the room...
