Visited 28/12/2012. Hotel was opened very recently (3Q2012) and you can even smell fresh paint and see plastic covers in some areas. Access by car can be tricky as this area of Lyon is completely new and not all GPS devices are up to date yet. Very convenient car park with direct access. 8€ per night only. Confluence shopping mall nearby (no direct access though). Tram line #1 nearby with very convenient direct access to main spots. Note that family tickets are cheap during weekends. You can also rent a bike in VELOV stations nearby (one located at the tram station, one located on the river side). Design rooms. WC are in the bathroom so that it's not very suitable when travelling with family. Shower surrounded by glass so that your room mates will be awaken in the morning by the first one to shower. As we are frequent ACCOR hotels clients, we had a special rate during Xmas 2012 so that quality / price ratio was simply outstanding. Reception desk is rather small considering the size of the hotel. I forgot one small case in the room when leaving and reception desk called me to pick it up. Nice. Breakfast with usual NOVOTEL stuff: scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, cheese, cereals, jelly, bread, coffee, tea, milk (be sure to ask for real milk, not the artificial one coming from the machine!!!), etc. Best rooms have odd numbers and X01 to X17 are even better with a direct view to the Saône river, see attached photos. Highly recommended overall.
