Lyon is a lovely and interesting city, and the location of this hotel and the owners' hospitality made it even more enjoyable and engaging. It's in the heart of the shopping area of Presqu'ile, near the Metro exchange at Place Bellecour and the pedestrian bridge to Vieux Lyon. There are many, many good restaurants within walking distance, and the staff is helpful with recommendations and reservations. The desk is staffed until 10:00 p.m.; they are all personable and speak English. One of the friendly, helpful owners (Laurent and Shireen) is onsite much of the day, so it is like a B&B. If you take advantage of the very good breakfast buffet (ham, cheese, breads, yogurt, fresh fruit, nuts and dried fruits, hard and soft boiled eggs, jams) you will get to know them and the other guests. Laurent delights in introducing people. The rooms are comfortable and clean, each one different. The breakfast room and the guest rooms are decorated with treasures Laurent found at the flea market, as well as some fine artwork. The wifi is free and consistent. Rooms have their own temperature controls, heat and AC. There is front door security and an elevator. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Lyon.
