“The right place to walk around Lyon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2012

This Hotel is located not far from the eastern bank of river Rhone. In a few minutes you can walk to the nearest tram or metro stations and as well as in the old town in between the Rhône and the Saône rivers. This is a great location for exploring the city and its fine restaurants.

The room was quiet, spacious and clean. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The only disadvantage was that there is free WiFi throughout the hotel, but you have to pay for using the one desktop computer in the hall near reception.

I did not take breakfast at the hotel. In fact the breakfast area in the hall seemde to be quite narrow and crowded in the morning.

Hotel very well located and quiet, just 10 min walking to place Belcour. Wifi in the room, the system of connexion is pretty annoying. Bed was very comfortable and clean. Coffee and tea in the room. Breakfast was good with salty and sweet things and warmly welcome. Recommended !!

Room Tip: Ask one with the balcony :-)

Nice and quiet location about 15 minutes' walk to the city center. Close to the Rhone riverside - nice walk along the quay. Clean and cozy room with a comfy bed, a minibar, tea and coffee making facilities, and a safe. Free wi-fi in the rooms (it was a bit slow at times but that is not uncommon in hotels during the evening "rush hour"). Friendly and helpful front desk staff.

There is only one small elevator, so taking your luggage down at checkout can take longer than you expect. Breakfast is overpriced (EUR 14 as far as I remember) but there are lots of cheaper options in the area around the hotel. All things considered, good value, and I would recommend it.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in the beginning of October. We arrived by car and it was very convenient to use the parking in the hotel, which we booked beforehand. The hotel staff was very friendly and we got the room that we asked for: higher floors, quit location, one queen or king bed.

The room was perfect, descent size, clean, bathroom is good size wi-fi was working pretty good.

The hotel receptionist was kind enough to recommended the restaurant he and his girlfriend used La Tessee, which ended up to be absolutely beautiful experience in the culinary capital of the World. I would definitely recommend this one.

Overall we liked our stay in this hotel, which is very conveniently located close to the river and a short walking distance from city main attractions.

Location for this hotel is great. Easy walk over the bridge to great restaurants. Laundromat is only about 500m away.

They are desperately understaffed so we had to wait for our room to be cleaned before we could get the keys.

The hotel is also stifling hot. The air conditioner did not work because the entire hotel had been switched over to winter mode. We complained and were given a fan which worked very well.

For the price this is a really comfortable hotel, decent size rooms, and well located close to the river. Just a few minutes walk across the bridge is center of Lyon. Ten minute walk takes you tO the "must see" Les Halle food paradise by Paul Bocuse.
