We stayed at Hotel du Simplon for 5 nights. The room was clean and comfortable (if a little warm for our taste) and seems to have been recently refurbished. The WiFi was a little bit unpredictable, but it was free! Some comments about the small size of rooms seem unreasonable to us, French hotel rooms are rarely large and we’ve stayed in some that were much smaller (and more expensive).
Breakfasts were simple (cereals, pastries, breads, jam, yoghourts, dried fruit, etc.) but enjoyable. The lounge area, though small, was welcoming.
However, the best part was the staff. Attentive, pleasant and efficient. They responded brilliantly to our requests and questions and offered decent recommendations for places to eat too. We were impressed.
The only slight downside may be the hotel’s location, near to a major railway station; this puts it on the ‘edge’ a little and those unfamiliar with diverse communities might find it a little strange. However, it’s about 10 minutes’ walk from Place Bellecour and only 20 from the old town.
We’d happily stay here again and recommend it!
