“close to train station, simple room”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The hotel is conveniently located just next to the Lyon Part Dieu train station. The standard room isnt that big, actually best to fit one guest. The bed isnt really comfortable, missing the Hilton standard. The rooms got aircon, which is definitely a plus in summer. But my rood got a very noise one, sound like a small airplane in take off mode. However, got a new room next day...which was prompt service:-)
No fridge in room a big minus when staying a bit longer in this fascinating city. The breakfast choice is good, but comes not free, unless incl. in room rate.
The internet is ok...at least did work quite ok in 414...on 310 it didnt work at all.

It was great for the location. You literally leave the station and you're there. As I speak French, I had no problems with communication and the staff was more than willing to help me find what I needed and give me recommendations and directions. The amenities are not amazing but I don't go to a hotel for that experience, just a place to sleep. Overall, it was a great place for a small weekend trip !

This hotel is right by the main train station - within meters. And they'll keep your bags with no problem. However, my experience with the check-in clerk was average. She seemed preoccupied and other things seemed more important than customers. The rooms were fine, but had some quirks. In my room one of the power outlets came out of the wall and the bathroom faucet was loose. I had one set of towels and there was nowhere to put soap. Regardless if I'm a single, I've never seen just one set of towels and I've never been standing with a bar of soap in my hand with nowhere to put it. Kinda weird. But, overall for the price and location it was a fine hotel and the breakfast was pretty good, too.

Room Tip: My room was facing the square (with the train station) and it was still quiet enough for a good rest...

The hotel is located just next to the Lyon Part Dieu Station, which has the TGV connection to Paris and Rhonde Express to Lyon airport.

Tip for salsa or nice bar : Barrio Club in Jules Ferry 13B is the correct address and so close to the hotel, you dont need to pick up a taxi, just turn right when you leave the elevator in the hotel and walk around 500 meters.

Rooms here are of good size and average quality, typical of 3 star places. However, the location is the best selling point. It is located off the square outside the Part Dieu train station and across the road from a huge department store with lots of shops, supermarket and free wifi. A good place to connect to the rest of the city with the metro, tram, bus and train all within a few minutes walk.

This seems to be like an upgraded two star hotel, at least the rooms are very small. The bathrooms have been upgraded and feel like a 3*. The location is very convenient, next to the Part Dieu railway station. This is a business hotel, so the prices are relatively high for the comfort offered. I would only recommend this hotel if you need to be close the station (late arrival / early departure), if not go elsewhere.

I booked with booking.com after viewing it was rated good on TA. Overall a good service, the single room is really small but is okay if you stay just one night.
Breakfast is not included in the price (as stated), I appreciated it was already available at 6.00.
