The staff was very helpfull. They permitted us to use the computer at the front desk to print our boarding passes. Even though our French is poor at best, we were able to communicate easily with them. The location was very convenient - just a few minutes walk to the Perrache train station.
The room was suitable only for sleeping. There was no space to sit or move about. We knew this going in and did not expect anything else. This pretty much defines a two star hotel in France.
lovely hotel, very comfortable beds, room a nice size, breakfast included in the price. Reception staff very nice and very helpful. Would definetely stay here again. very close to metro station. Not noisy at all!
breakfast was on the small size but very typically french
The location was great. Within a few hundred metres of the A7 motorway and 10 min walk from the mains shops and central square.. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was excellent value for money.
The hotel was close to Lyon Perrache station which makes travelling easy. It is also close to a little outdoor mall area which was good for finding something to eat. The building was under renovation when we stayed but it looks like it is a very nice building and will be quite pretty inside when done.
The hotel was fine but the renovations were a little noisy and when we arrived there was no water for a few hours (a bit tricky washing hands/going to the bathroom etc.). It was fine for a short trip since we were mostly out of our room, but I found the lack of notification regarding the renovation a little frustrating, and when I asked about maybe the 6 euro breakfast as compensation the lady at the desk flattly refused. Oh also the bathroom was really awful. Honestly the smallest I have ever seen with the worst shower in the world! Overall the hotel was okay, but I wouldn't stay there again, I didn't like the feel of the place or the lady at the desk that much.
The location is wonderful! Just a couple of blocks from the Perrache train station, and within walking distance to wonderful markets, museums, shopping... so much more. The staff gave recommendations for dinners at small restaurants you might otherwise miss, and they were fabulous eateries, just what Lyons is known for! There was a sitting lounge and a breakfast room that were "quaint" and they were doing major renovations in them as I was leaving. I was very pleased with this little hotel. Great value for the money.
