Premiere Classe Lyon Centre - Gare Part Dieu
Ranked #90 of 194 Hotels in Lyon
Reviewed 31 March 2014

This is a simple, generic hotel...as one would expect from a Premiere Classe hotel. It offers clean and affordable accommodation a short walk from Gare Part Dieu while not being too far from the city (but it's not exactly central). The room was just fine for me as a solo traveller staying for one night. Had a nice view looking out towards the city. I would definitely recommend this hotel to the budget weary traveller looking for a good place to stay for one or two nights.

Pluses of this place are well explained in other reviews: it's relatively cheap, and near a railway station.

The downsides are: it has zero character, the rooms (at least the one we stayed in) are cramped, the bathroom is a tiny plastic all-in-one capsule, the view is of wasteland and the railway tracks, the immediate area is uninspiring. All in all, a mite depressing.

There isn't really any 'service' from the staff who do smile and say 'bonjour' but basically sit behind a desk at the entrance (there isn't a foyer, presumably so more bedrooms can be crammed in). They don't even sell bottles of water (they said there are small plastic cups in the room). We didn't brave the breakfast. The cleaning staff were good, and the room was reasonably clean.

The 'room for three' includes a bunk bed up near the ceiling at 90 degrees to the two other beds lower down. The TV seems to have all the main French stations. Nor sure about soundproofing as it seemed pretty empty at the end of February, start of March, but I have the feeling it would be pretty noisy (and the density of guests would be high).

So other than for a night before catching a train, better to fork out some extra (if you have it) and find a hotel in the older part of the city, where you have ready access to the cobbled street, grey rivers and overpriced tourist restaurants and cafes. Or maybe just avoid Lyon entirely?

Room Tip: Three people in a room for three would be very cramped. I would suspect all the rooms are pretty muc...

This hotel is convenient if needing to travel to and from the station Gare Part Dieu, however the area itself doesn't really showcase the best of what Lyon has to offer. It is a decent few km's from the city centre but for a short stay it is fine. There is a metro station also about a 5-10 minute walk away.
The hotel itself was simple but has everything you needed. Our room was a good size, but the bathroom was on the smaller side. Wi-fi available in the rooms and the TV had a variety of channels (all in French though).
Good overall for a short stay.

I travelled with friends and we urgently needed a room to stay for one night, as our plans had changed and this hotel was a great choice. It's cheap, basic and clean. The rooms are small and bathrooms are really tiny but it's not a problem. Beds are very comfortable, we slept like babies :) Aircon works wonders during heatwave and WiFi is free and pretty fast. The location couldn't be better if you need to leave early next day - Lyon Part Dieux station is a few meters away.

This hotel is located pretty near the main train station Lyon Part Dieu - granted it is not just next door, but it certainly looks more decent than some of the dingier looking hotels right next to the train station.

The room is quite small and the bathroom is tiny, but it is good enough for a short city trip where you spend little time in the room itself.

The Wifi can be slow at times, especially on a laptop, but on a smartphone the speed is ok. The beds are very comfortable. At times the number of power outlets is inadequate, but given that our stay was pretty short (2 nights), we were not very bothered by this.

Cheaper than staying at a branded hotel, and comparable price to staying at a hostel.

Good value hotel, well located for the gare Part Dieu and with good transport links, though there's not much going on in the area itself. Nice, clean, comfortable bedroom with TV & air-con. Slept extremely well here. The bathroom, however, is a bit strange! It has everything you need but is confined to a small, plastic space capsule-like room!

As cheap hotels go this is a good one. The room was clean and most importantly - during a heatwave - the aircon worked a dream. Room with a view it ain't, looking out over the railway lines. Wifi was good and easy to access throughout the trip. Lack of handtowel and bathmat annoying, but gotten over by taking extra towels. Also lack of handsoap is annoying. Close to Lyon Part Diex station which had links to everywhere in the city plus handy for when leaving/coming into Lyon.
