“Friendly and clean.”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

Quality/Price is correct for Lyon. Deco in the rooms is not great, but works. The place is clean. The people who work there are very friendly. Only real down... the interior rooms tend to be a bit noisy with other guests coming in late at night.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms on the 1st or 2nd floor that look over the interior stairwell and court.

My husband and I were travelling France in June and to be honest, this was the worst hotel out of 7 hotels in France. I was travelling from Nice to Chamonix and Lyon was a convinient stop for us to rest for one night so I did not want to spend too much money on accomodation and that is why I have booked this hotel.

The location was great! It was easy to find and it was close to many places that we wanted to visit. The staffs were really really helpful. However, the building was really old. The room was really dark and it was quite scary to be honest. The bathroom had a door but the ceiling was not covered so our room became really steamy after the shower. The hotel managed to clean the room properly but all the furnitures were really old.

Next time, I am willing to pay a bit more to go to higher ended hotel.

Hi... as good a location can be in Lyon right next to the heart of the old town. A charming Lyonaisse building with old style charm. We had a very warm reception and our room was clean and pleasant. Some reviews mentioned noise, but, they had newly installed secondary windows in our room (i assume to block out any passing noise?), so, we had no issues sleeping at the front of the hotel. Don't expect the Ritz for the price, but, it's an excellent hotel for under £70... Also, eat lunch at les Adrets on Rue de Beouf round the corner. A proper bouchon wtih gorgeous food. You'll need to book

The hotel is well situated in the old town ((although a day or two in the old town is enough to see the sights) in a nice renaissance building. Breakfast was quite good for a French hotel breakfast. The room was small, but good value for a family of four.

Room Tip: A bit of noise in rooms facing the street

We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2010. The hotel was centrally located - which was great. The room we had was fairly small, but that was expected. The bathroom was good. The free Wifi was great. We lost one of our wallets one day when we were there, and when we couldn't report it on the internet, the guy at the front desk offered us his cell phone to call CIBC/Diners Club to cancel the cards. The hotel was a bit noisy at night, as you heard the coming/goings of people, as the staircase was close to every room, but wasn't a big issue for us!

Good directions from railway station to the hotel. The owner had noted my request for a light room. He provided me with a map and marked the places that might be of interest. Excellent English in contrast to my poor French. Convivial little breakfast room. Lots of stairs to the top floor but I knew the owner had warned me of that at time of booking. Great location for the old part of town and easy access to C3 bus from Lyon Part Dieu station. I travel light so I walked to the station when I left . Wandering through the streets in the general direction of the station with stops for photos and exploring squares took about 45 minutes. TV had slightly dodgy reception on all but ARTE channel otherwise great place. I would stay there again without a doubt.

Others have extolled the location of the hotel. You really can walk just about everywhere from there, and public transportation serves it well too.
We were very happy with our room on the second floor (226, I think...) What originally was a shared bathroom is now the private bath for the room so the space actually incorporates the bathroom and the hall which joins it to the bedroom. Hence, lots of space, which is unusual in old hotels like this.
Our bed was very comfortable and the room was extremely quiet. The continental breakfast was typical and satisfying. The computer in the lobby was handy.

What we enjoyed most about the hotel, though, was the proprietor, Dominique. He clearly loves his property and is very proud and pleased to talk about its history. In addition he enjoys good food and has impeccable recommendations for dining in the area, and not just high-priced ones. He sent us to several "bouchons" which would have escaped our notice. Each one was superb.

Definitely great value for the price. We would stay there again.
