      Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel room was clean and comfortable. For teh price paid i thought it was very good. Secure parking was the bonus for me and the reason that I booked. Free Wi-Fi

      Just a little too far out of the town, but I knew this before booking.

      The room was excellent, very spacious and clean. The staff were amazing, so helpful..couldn't do enough for you. It was only 2 minute walk to station, very easy to get anywhere in Lyon. The breakfast and dinner there was amazing, value for money, fresh and huge choice. I would definately recomment it :-))))

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      Excellent location, near a metro station (Gorge de Loup). One metro station to the old town (Vieux Lyon) and two to the center. Rooms very clean (rather small), bed very comfortable. A supermarket 50 m away from the hotel (for the ones who don't want to take the 12 Euro breakfast). Parking places available all the time in front of the hotel, payable (and 12 Euro/night available indoor parking). Hotel situated in a very quiet street. Free WiFi access.

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      The hotel is located slightly outside the main city centre, but only one stop away from the old city. This has the advantage of making it nice and quiet, besides being a very well run hotel with wonderfully helpful staff, who all seemed to speak good English. There is an excellent Pizzeria next door to the hotel, besides which they offer very good meals themselves at good prices. Altogether excellent.

    • Couple
      6.6

      Perfect Location to old town - one stop by metro, hotel is close to metro! very polite receptionist during the evening shift! Room preferences were respected as requested with reservation

      Breakfast is very poor! Tables are not ready for breakfast. The staff is not willing to help. But good quality of croissants. Parking - marked as not reservation needed, but when called the hotel they said that it might be fully booked and then you have no place to park your car. Not very convenient not to be sure to get your parking place

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Well located to get into the city centre. The metro is just around the corner, and just one stop into the old city centre!!

    • Family with children
      8.2

      The "Family Room" was very comfortable, relaxing, clean and rather calm. Big lsd tv was felicitous find after hard car trip.

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      We were upgraded on arrival probably because the roomwas not ready when we checked in at 3pm and we had to wait. The room was spacious and comfortable for a city centre hotel.

      It was so difficult to find following the driving instructions. We almost gave up. Road names off roundabouts etc are not easy to find! Ther must be a simpler route to give.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      when we arrived the staff was really helpful and we was soon in our room.Very confortable and clean will return to this hotel if i ever need to .
