“Good location with a stunning view of Lyon”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

A good hotel, friendly staff clean rooms. Situated on the main road it can be noisy if your room over looks the road. But the positive of this is that you have a stunning view across Lyon. There is a spectacular set of steps going down into the old town but they aren't quite so much fun on the way back! The cathedral and other churches are well worth a visit. There are plenty of restaurants but eh ones in the old town main squares tend to be more expensive but he ambience makes up for it.

Merci de l'attention portée à notre établissement...ravis que vous ayez passé un bon séjour en notre compagnie.Il est vrai qu'avec son marché quotidien, ses nombreuses terrasses de bistrot et ses multiples points de vue sur la ville, la Croix-Rousse est un quartier pittoresque et plein de charme.
Très cordialement.

We stayed in lyon for three nights with our two dogs. The staff were really friendly and helpful and made us all feel very welcome. Decor was lovely in the rooms, reception and breakfast room. A little tired in the corridors but that's hardly a big deal. The rooms are quite small, but they have everything you need, including a hair dryer. The location is good. There's a lovely market outside the hotel and loads of restaurants cafés in the local, yet it was very quiet at night. Great for a short city break in lyon. Would definitely stay here again if we are in lyon. Really fantastic value for money.

We were visiting my niece in Rillieux-la-Pape and Initially planned to stay 3 nights. We left after the first night because of the very miserable status of the room and surroundings.
Not sure this hotel is respecting the safety standards. No problem to get our deposit back. Reception desk OK. We changed for the IBIS.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms at the top of the building.

Bonjour,
Sachez que les normes de sécurité sont parfaitement respectées et ce avec beaucoup de sérieux et de rigueur : il est grave de faire de telles accusations.
Pour rappel, vous occupiez une chambre au 5ème étage, entièrement réstauré en Août 2010 avec balcon et vue sur la ville: Le tout à 50€ !!!
Avec un titre comme " never again" nous nous reservons le droit d'engager des poursuites judiciaires.
Il est trop facile de saboter en quelques lignes, le travail de toute une équipe!
Il y a peu, un restaurateur du Cap Ferret a gagné un procès contre l'auteur d'un avis similaire au vôtre, ce dernier ayant été condamné à verser 1500€ de dommages et intérêts.
ANSELME Joanne

Hello there,
Be aware that safety standards are fully respected and that very seriously and rigor: it is serious to make such accusations.
Remember, you were a room on the 5th floor, fully renovated in August 2010 with a balcony and views of the city: The whole 50 €!
With a title like "never again" we reserve the right to prosecute.
It is too easy to sabotage a few lines, the work of a team!
There is little, a restorer of Cap Ferret won a lawsuit against the author of an opinion similar to yours, the latter having been ordered to pay € 1500 in damages.

We chose this hotel because we were visiting relatives who lived around the corner. The next time we go back to Lyon, we will stay elsewhere and take the metro if needed. The hotel is very, very basic. The only thing good about it is the price. We were told it had been recently renovated. They should have done more. The portable airconditioning unit was not attached to the vent in the wall and did not work. The street was too noisy to keep the window open at night as there are restaurants and pubs nearby. No ventilation! We found snot in our sheets -- disgusting! The towels were grey. Look elsewhere.

We picked this place because we were on a tight budget and this place was the closest to the center of town for a reasonable price.

It wasn't amazing, but we were happy with it overall. The location was the best thing. From the hotel walking it takes about 15 minutes to get into the center of town. There is a busy and nicely groomed walking area down into town with a great view over the city. Just note however, this part of town including the hotel is on a high hill over the main part of Lyon. To get back to the hotel from town it's a steep uphill climb for about 10 minutes. We are in our 20s though so this was fine for us.

The hotel itself was nice enough. The staff was very friendly and spent time giving us directions to various places in town. They were happy to print out directions or maps for us too, which helped a lot.

Our first night the room was okay but every time we walked in there was this smell that I can only describe as sewage. The room was clean and there was no obvious source of the smell. When we opened the window and aired it out it was okay, but the smell would come back. Because of this we asked to change rooms the second night, and they were very nice and let us change rooms. That room smelled fine and was a slight upgrade from our previous room.

Both nights our window faced the street and had a nice view of Lyon.

My husband and I were pleased to have found a hotel in a completely untouristy neighborhood. It's two minutes to the nearest subway station, so we were able to get around Lyon (on a metro day-pass) with ease. There were some difficulties that were not exactly the hotel's fault, but they could have been a bit more sympathetic to a mature couple. Since there was work being done in the street directly in front of the hotel, there was no place to stop with the car and unload luggage, nor could we reload the car easily at the end of our stay. Dragging luggage is hard to deal with at our more advanced ages. In addition, due to the street work, the hotel's credit card machine did not work. We had no choice but to pay for our stay with cash. Needless to say, what cash we had changed was money we had earmarked for other purposes.
