I stayed here for one night on my own when passing through Lyon, and then booked for the following week for one night with my husband and son rather than an airport hotel as I found the location ideal for both sightseeing and shopping, the rooms were clean, the price very reasonable and the staff extremely pleasant and helpful. The rooms are small but well furnished with ensuite. It is like an apartment building so you get a key to a certain floor and enter that part of the corridor with your key where there are then about four rooms. I found it reasonably quiet except when the people in the room next door came in/went out - no street noise that I was aware of but I do sleep soundly! You need to be prepared to walk up and down the stairs - the lift is a small, traditional French apartment lift and was broken on our second stay. The breakfast is ok - a bit pricey but you can eat what you want and there is enough choice for anyone - plus it is optional. Wifi is unreliable though. There is no kettle/bar in the room but you can get soft or hot drinks at reception. Nothing I asked for was too much trouble for the reception staff and they gave me an excellent restaurant recommendation. Parking in the streets is very difficult so I parked in the nearby car park (there are several nearby) which was expensive but very convenient. I will definitely stay here again when I next visit Lyon - overall great value as long as you don't intend to spend too long in the room as there isn't much space.
