Reviewed 20 March 2012

Great location in the City Centre near the theatre and main shopping street. Reception upstairs but no lift available (if required). English spoken. Reception staff friendly & helpful. Room was slightly disappointing. Felt dirty but not awful. Shower was powferful but no curtain. Breakfast was an added bonus over a good time period. A refurbishment would make it an amazing place. Free wifi available.

Room Tip: Rooms with afivew of the theatre and square are available.

Yes, as someone said, the entrance is behind the hotel. Who cares? It's well lite and safe.

There is no elevator and there is no help with luggage so be prepared. For this price and the location, I would not complain.

I paid just a few more dollars for a Superior room which came with a view of the Theatre. For a room in Europe at this price, the room was very big and bathroom was large. It was very clean and the location could not be better. About a block from the River and a few minutes from everything. If you want to use the city bicycles, you can rent one in front of the hotel.

There was a little bar on the corner by the river called Seven. Convenient at night for a quick drink and only a minute away. They spoke english and where very friendly. Gave me a poster they had on the wall I asked about and also helped me with restaurant recommendations. In fact, they recommended a restaurant below the hotel. (One the first floor of the same building as the hotel....the hotel is on the 2-4 floors.)

Lyon is a great city...have fun.

Room Tip: Steps.....ask for a room on the second floor if you have an issue.

Stayed for three nights with my wife-The reception on the second floor with no lift (which we were aware of) seemed a long way with two heavy cases.The entrance is not on the lovely square but in a fairly grotty side street-the pictures are misleading.Continental breakfast was very good value.

Main plus the location -very central to all local sights but a 100 euro return trip from the airport .

Room was basic - but clean

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the square.

I just recently returned fro a visit to Lyon, a beautiful French city, especially at night. The Hotel du Theater was recommended in a guide book. There is no lift and you have to walk two flights to reach the lobby and I had to walk two more flights up (4 total) to my room with 2 heavy suitcases and no help. The pluses for the hotel is that it is clean, and the location is terrific, right in the the center of the old town with a short walk to wonderful sites. The wireless is free. I did not pay for the Sunday morning breakfast of 6 euros for coffee, juice and bread. A travel tip: there are not many places opened on Sunday morning, so if you want breakfast, you may need to pay the price. The staff was nice about directions, etc.

Room Tip: Ask to look over the square in front of the theater

We had a room with a veiw of the theatre, the room was large bright and airy, the bed was very comfortable and the staff were pleasant and helpful. All this and the price was excellant, beautiful location just a short walk from the old town. All hotels should be like this! Our only dissapointment..... we could only stop 1 night.

This hotel is great for a one night stay. The location is ideal to access the tourist sights of Old Lyon. There is a large underground car park nearby which was easy to find driving in with limited directions and no sat nav and cost around €20 for 24 hours. The room was large enough and clean with 2 beds & bathroom and a fan provided which we needed in the heat. Less able travellers should be aware that there is no lift so at least 3 flights of stairs to climb but most people shouldn't find this a problem. I would recommend this for a short stay.

The location of this hotel is great, a 5 min walk to Vieux Lyon and close to the subway/metro stop. However, the hotel is located on a square, so it may be loud at night. I had no trouble sleeping at night, but the person I was with did. We had a room facing the square, so it might be better to get a room on the other side. Our room had a great view the Fourvière hill and was overall verycomfortable. We did not have a standing shower-just a bathtub and a handheld shower-which was fine for us. The bed and decoration of the room was fine-nothing fancy but not old and worn either.

To get to the hotel you have to go down a little back street and then climb two flights of stairs. Once you get to the hotel, I don't believe they have an elevator. Again, this wasn't a big deal for us, just fyi. The breakfast was wonderful-and assortment of breads and jams, butter, etc with orange juice and a hot drink.

While we stayed here we saw two people working the front desk-one was very friendly and helpful, the other kind of had bad attitude. Overall, this hotel was fine for a 2-night weekend stay.
