Reviewed 19 July 2007

We stayed at the Hotel Dubost for 1 night. The location was great - we stumbled straight out of Lyon Perrache station and into Place Carnot. It was within an easy walking distance of everything we wanted to see, Fourviere, Vieux Lyon and the shops.
The room was a decent size; the bathroom was huge by European standards and did have a bath and shower.
There was a very predominant smell like mayonnaise, though, that really put me off this hotel. It just made it seem really cheap. We didn't have breakfast here, preferring one of the cafes in Place Carnot. The staff were a bit brusque.
This hotel was my least favourite of those I visited in France. I wouldn't want to stay there for long periods of time.

Booked via bookings.com. Price was reasonable, about average for a two star hotel.
We only stayed one night here but we appreciated the central location and the solid two star hotel comfort level.
Our room was a reasonable size facing the street. The windows had double glazing but didn't seal very well but the street outside wasn't very busy. The room had a climate control system of some sort but I'm not sure if it was air conditioning or just an air circulation system. There is a park across the street and also the rail/bus/metro/tram stops.
It was just two minutes walk to the main shopping strip if that interests you.
If you arrive at Part-Dieu train station you can take the number 1 tram straight to the hotel.

We booked a reservation through Venere. We received an email confirming our reservation. It had a reservation number, with all the information, dates, rate, room type etc. (In English)
There was one line in the middle of all this (in French, which I do not know.)
When we arrived, the rude woman behind the counter told us that we did not have a reservation.
I showed her the confirmation. She read it and pointed to the one French sentence, that she translated as there are NO ROOMS AVAILABLE. So why send out a confirmation, with all the information? If there were no rooms, then a simple email stating that should have been sent!!
Although the woman tried to find us a hotel, she was not sympathetic nor helpful.
After emailing both the Venere and the hotel, we have not gotten an apology or explanation!
I would never book through Venere again and go to The Hotel Dubost. I will make sure to tell everyone I know also.

The beauty of the Hotel is its location from the Railway and Bus Station for the Airport, some 2 minutes walk. The coach journey to the airport is 50 mins and they run every 20 mins. The Hotel was quiet and the room we had was small but adequate, breakfast was not taken as there were many local Cafe's close by serving good food. A vending machine was located within the foyer area but personally opted to take a travel kettle for ease of use. The staff at the Hotel spoke very good English and were manned 24 hours. Questions on local activities were met with sound advice and maps.
Lyon is a fantastic City with a wealth of history, a local street map is a must and is invaluable. Over 5 days we covered between 5 and 10 miles a day without rarely overlaping areas. Tour buses, trams and public transport are available but walking will give you the side streets that cannot be seen by bus. A market is held outside the Hotel on Sunday and other markets are located on the quay St Antoine of the Saone river with a craft market on the other side of the river, overlooked by the impressive Notre Dame De Fourviere.
