      It was very conveniently located to tourist sightseeing, restaurants and shopping. It was clean, and quiet.

      Suitable only for overnight stay as rooms are very small. Would recommend for short stay only.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Staff was very friendly, location good. Hotel doesn't have their own parking place but a public parking place is very close.

      Room was very small and toilet the smallest I've ever seen.

    • Couple
      6.6

      The staff was very nice and friendly, the breakfast was acceptable. The location close to the Old Town would be perfect...

      Would be perfect if not for the night club on the other side of the street which resulted in much noise during the night. The air conditioning system makes the air extremely dry - had to open the window to let the fresh air in (along with the noise). Still, I'd recommend the hotel if you're more tolerant to AC than us.

      very good location

      very small rooms, 70% of the room is bed. quite wet climat inside the room

      the bar was no open during the period.very small room on the 8th floor

    • Group of friends
      8.8

      The best thing I liked was the location of the hotel. Located in the city center and from what I could tell historic heart of the city the hotel was withing easy walking distance of good shops and restaurants.

      Pretty much the only thing I can think of disliking was the breakfast selection. The price one would pay for the size of the breakfast isn't worth it.

    • Couple
      7.4

      The location of the hotel was excellent. Less than 1 minute walk from the main shopping promenade. There was the main Metro line only 5 minutes walk away linking the rest of the city. The hotel rooms were a little old and small, however we had a Junior Suite which we found reasonably spacious and was located at the back of the hotel away from the traffic noise. We ate outside for all our meals...including breakfast and this was a perfect hotel for this.

      Generally the rooms were a little old in style....but they were comfortable

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      Nice people, very kind.

      We had a on window that we could open for approx 20 cm. With 3 adults we need some fresh air. Even with airco, fresh air is needed.

    • Family with children

      The staff were very helpful & spoke English quite well. The hotel was very central with good access to the river & shops.

      Location

      Toilet was split into two I dont know why?

    • Group of friends
      8.2

      Helpful staff - good knowledge of English lanuage

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Excellent location and the staff were extremely helpful for first time visitors to Lyon. Special mention must go to Sebastian (Conceirge) for his helpful advice to us; not only did he suggest the 'best' way to see Lyon in the short time we had available, but directed us to a magnificant restaurant within walking distance. Dining at Thomas' was a highlight of our trip to Lyon, especially as we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      the aircom was brilliant, layout lovely, appreciated the tea and coffee could not fault the hotel

    • Couple
      10.0

      Everything ok, except for the payment for the reservation.Great location, lots of parkings around (although expensive - we payed 36 EUR for one day and 2 nights)

      After making the reservation, they tried to charge my credit card using the "mail order / telephone order" system, which is NOT secure and is not allowed by any sane bank for operations without the presence of the card ! I had to call the bank and activate the MOTO transactions for 1 hour, then all was fine.

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      The room was quiet and clean.There were instant coffee and tea in the room. Breakfast was so so.

      Breakfast is expensive (16.9 euros). There are two elevators, but waiting time is longer than average.
