    The hotel was quite good as location near the central square of the town (Bellecour), every saturday there is a market in the road infront of the hotel with antiques! The privilege room was good and clean and the bed comfortable.

    The breakfast was good but a bit expensive for what was offering. The staff was polite and english speaking which is a big issue for Lyon! But the internet connection during the hole weekend was off!!!

  • Group of friends

    All staff very friendly, especially the night we arrived (late!!).Much appreciated.

  • Couple

    This hotel is a 3 stars hotel, but in my opinion it was more than 3 stars'...My husband and I stayed there for one night, we had a Privilege Double Room... the room had enough space + terrace...it was clean, very quite and it had a good air conditioning inside the room... ( there was no mini bar)

  • Couple
    8.8

    kind and helpful staff. free private parking (small number of places available),clean and very silent room with air cond.(ask for a room facing the inside court).availability of several bars,brasserie and supermarket just close to the hotel

    location: it's very central but you need to cross the nearby railway station to get to the first metro station (anyway we didn't experience any problem until midnight)

  • Couple

    On first arrival we were given a rather poor room, which had a hole in the ceiling and leaking air-conditioning. We complained and the staff dealt with our complaint promptly; we were given an excellent room, which had been recently redecorated.

    We got a free upgrade to a privillege room. We had a large bed, the room was clean. Bathroom was also nice.

    The privillege part of the hotel was a bit noisy.

  • Single

    I got the room for a realy cheap fair through bookings.com. Usually the hotelrooms I book are not so big and luxurious because I cant afford them..

    The smelly halls

  • Single

    Location: right in Charlemagne square, close to shopping and minutes walk from Lyon Perrache, which is one of Lyon's two main railway stations. Price is more than reasonable for what you get.

  • Older travelers

    It was very near the tramway and train station. Also they had smoking rooms. This is important for people who smoke! I don't but my sister does. Toilet was separate which was handy. There were bedside lamps which meant I could read in bed.

    Had no shower curtain but apparently this is normal in France. Still had a wash though! Nice wardrobe but would have liked some drawers for the 'smalls'.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    After complaining about poor air conditioning, we were moved to a much better room with good a\C. The first room was very basic and uninspiring. Staff were good at doing this. Reasonable walk into town. Parking available if booked ahead.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    very close to the city center and all the sopping area, proximity to public transport is an asset

    You can hear quite a lot of noise from outside, the windows are too thin

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    The hotel was ccomfortable and clean, good value for money, in a great location next to the Perrache train station and close to the main square.

    There was a strong smell of stale cigarettes on the corridoors.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The hotel was quiet, relaxing & convenient to city centre.On hotel parking convenient as I am disabled

    The room was supposed to be non-smoking but clearly previous guests had smoked. To be fair however we did not request a room change

  • Couple
    7.0

    The room was nicely decorated and clean (we took the bigger one, with the balcony). The stuff was nice and helpful.

    The first night I couldn't sleep because of some strange sounds comming from the balcony direction... I think there were rats or birds somewhere between the room and the balcony, inside the fake wall.. I'm not sure of location but they were really noisy. So I asked for the room to be changed, the receptionist seemed to know what I'm talking about and agreed to change it. After that, everything was ok.
