Perfect if you are arriving on the TGV at Part Dieu, only a short walk along Boulevard Marius Vivier Merle. Before we arrived I was a bit apprehensive about what the neighbourhood would be like. It's described as the business district so I was worried it would be deserted or seedy after dark, but it is fine and we felt safe walking back to the hotel at night. In fact, the hotel is very well-placed for walking into the centre of Lyon for sightseeing. We walked to Place Bellecour along Rue Paul Bert which is a pleasant 20-minute walk through an interesting residential neighbourhood. The hotel is also close to metro and tram lines. The transport system in Lyon is excellent.
Our room was very clean. Twin rooms fairly small. Bathroom small but perfectly adequate. Excellent shower. No hair dryers: bring your own.
Breakfast very good value indeed. Basic but adequate fare: cereals, toast, juice, hot drinks, baguettes, jams, honey, yogurt. As long as you aren't expecting freshly baked croissants it's fine. In the breakfast room there is a television with news programme on, plus daily newspapers provided. The breakfast staff were very friendly to us during our stay too. Reception staff friendly and helpful too.
Only thing against it is its proximity to the train lines so if you want to sleep with the window open and are a light sleeper you may be disturbed by the noise from the night freight trains. We were there during an unseasonal heat wave and unfortunately the air con broke during our stay so we did need the window open. No dramas though, these things happen.
