My wife and I stayed there for four days after visiting Burgundy in our honeymoon trip (which started in Paris, of course). It is true that it is not in the center of town, but it is quite near to the Place Bellecour either by bus (less than 10 minutes, and there is a bus stop right behind the hotel reception) or by car. It is a business hotel, very modern and well kept. Since they knew that we were on our honeymoon, all the employees treated us like the most special guests (something that did not happen in any other hotel during our trip, except for the apartment in the Île Saint-Louis that we always rent when going to Paris, where Giancarlo, the owner, welcomed us with flowers): we were given an upgrade to a Junior (though huge) Suite, that had a separate full living room with a fancy music equipment and even a guest bathroom (there are only 5 suites like that in the entire hotel), and to top it off a chilled bottle of a nice champagne was awaiting us with fruits and chocolates, together with a full one page letter in Spanish (our mother tongue) from the manager welcoming us (that we keep as a souvenir)! As we came driving from Burgundy, they did not know exactly at what time we were arriving, but managed to kept the champagne chilled notwithstanding that we were more than 4 hours late of our intended check-in time! The manager even tried to contact me at my mobile number from Peru to know our exact time of arrival (I heard his voice mails afterwards)! This was just an outstanding beginning of what ended up being the best service ever received in our entire experience from a hotel in Europe. Bravo!
