    « Well situated with pleasant staff »

    We stayed here for three nights this October. Our room was on the fifth floor but the lift only goes to the fourth floor so we had to to go up a few steps to our room, which was not a problem. Our room (502) was a little on the small side but had everything we needed. We don't watch TV so I can't comment on how good it was but i did appreciate having a kettle and the opportunity to have a hot drink in the room. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was very modern and clean though there was scum round the base of the tap. (Sorry, but I am very picky about taps and overflows!) The towels were changed daily even when we hung them up. Free wi-fi was available and we had no problems with it. There is also a computer in the reception area. We had the buffet breakfast each morning and were more than satisfied with the choice of food offered and the way in which it was constantly refreshed. We found the hotel to be well-situated, meeting all our needs, and would not hesitate to recommend it or to stay there again.

    « A wonderful place for a long stay in Lyon »

    This hotel is in an ideal location in the middle of the peninsula and close to everything to see in Lyon. It is in walking distance of Vieux Lyon and all of the major squares and shopping streets. My stay lasted 10 days. The accommodations were clean and comfortable; and the room and bathroom, though small, were adequate for one person. I loved the fact that the windows opened to the outside, but they were good insulators when closed. The hotel and the public areas were clean and inviting. The service was excellent and the manager, M. Collet, was very nice and very professional. He went out of his way to help me when I had a problem. The elevator stops in between floors so it is necessary to walk up or down a few stairs; this is not idea, but it was not a problem for me. It might be difficult for others. Of course, my luggage was taken up and down by hotel personnel.

    « Picturesque and full of Character »

    This hotel is very central, in a street with only historical buildings. My room was no. 307. The historical experience started with getting to the room with a heavy suitcase. Because the building is old, there was only one, slow lift, also used by the staff, and which stopped only between floors. The room started with a long corridor (photo). The shower room was small but well designed (photo). It had no drying line. The luggage storage area unusually good, and the bed was comfortable (photos). There was a bedside clock. The air conditioning was easy to work, as long as you found the instructions in the Guest Directory. There was an adequate supply of electrical sockets. The TV was OK. The Wi-Fi was easy to access, but signal was weak, and service ended just after 23:00 on the night before my departure; there was no problem getting a new code, but the code print-outs were very faint. The view from the window was of an ochre shaft (photo), part of the charm of an older building, but it did mean the room was quiet. The Breakfast Room was very small, but the buffet was good ? this was the first European hotel I have stayed in where the breakfast buffet included dried dates and a juicer with fresh oranges. The staff were friendly and helpful.

    « Good location with excellent staff »

    Stayed there for 2 nights during the Euro cup semi-final match. Lucky to got a room during that time in such a great location with all sorts of facilities within a walking distance. The city was vibrant with football fans... really enjoyed the hotel surroundings... people dancing, singing whole night. Definitely overpriced that time...but can't blame hotel authority for that. Bathroom is very small but okay. Lyon city boat, old bridge all are nearby. Lots of food zones but could not find a single English menu.

    « Good location, weird room plan »

    The hotel is in a very central location, close to pubs, restaurants and shops. And the staff was very helpful. But the rooms had a strange plan-a narrow long hall between the beds and the toilet-not to mention it was seperate than the bathroom. And note that elevator stops in the mid-floors so either way you climb up or down to your room's floor. It's not easy if your luggage is heavy.

    « Perfectly placed for foodies!! »

    Hotel is tucked away down a side street, but don't be put off, as sooooo close to the most amazing restaurants; possibly 40 down a street 20 metres away!! Add to that, an outstanding food market 60 metres away and you are in foodie heaven. We hired the apartment (5 men) and it was everything we needed - ignore the entrance hallway and lift (both from a 50's movie); the apartment is really pleasant (although might be chilly in Winter, as little heating)

    « Great location »

    The hotel is literally a 5 minute walk over the bridge to Old Lyon. It is centrally located and you can walk to most restaurants in under 10 minutes. The main walking streets and markets are within minutes of hotel. The Christmas market is either a 20 minute walk or a 6 minute taxi. The minimum taxi fare is 7 euros and that will get you to 90% of Lyon.

    « Ok »

    Very nice staff, fluent in various languages and eager to help. Not a good breakfast buffet, bottle water upon request not available in the room. Location is great for going to historic area and restaurant for dinner. Would recommend for short stays, but take your breakfast at any other place and make sure to have drinking water before calling it a night.

    « Location not Luxury »

    Great hotel to enjoy the city of Lyon. Decor was clean but tired and the room was tiny, just a double bed with 3 foot of space around. Perfectly located near to restaurants, bars and attractions Good breakfast Good Service

    « Mixed feelings ! »

    Very centrally located and ideal for one night or two maximum ! The hotel is clean but decor is in need of an upgrading to reach today's standards , the room was acceptable but rather small and the bathrooms are uncomfortably minute . The service is excellent and personnel is helpful. Hotel is close to all amenities including a grocer and patisserie so we did not go for the breakfast offered . Public parking is two minutes walk away??

    « Nicer in pictures »

    I thought I would get a room that looked like the first room pictured on Tripadvisor-- nice and tasteful. I booked this hotel thinking that all the rooms look this. However I got the Klee room with a red and orange colour scheme which was just not what I wanted at all. I also found the teal coloured toilet very weird and not at all pleasant. Room itself is quite okay but the colour scheme is just tacky and not what I was expecting and this really put me off to be honest. Wouldn't really stay at this hotel again given the chance. Staff were helpful and the location is great, but for next time I will look for a hotel with rooms a bit more tastefully done.

    « Great Location in Lyon! »

    Great location, but the hotel is perhaps a little tired. Staff were excellent and very helpful. If you want to be in the heart of the old city and will be out and about all day, then this hotel is OK. The rooms are small as expected in this old part of town.

    « Good location »

    Good location easy to walk to restaurants, sights, expensive shops. Because of location the room a bit depressing, looked out onto narrow street with high buildings so permanently dark. The room's decor didn't help. Very new, modern bathroom but older visitors beware, the bath was a bit high to step into with no grab rails.The toilet was separate with no hand basin, so had to go into bathroom to wash hands, opening two doors!. Room had coffee/tea facilities, mini-bar, TV,phone, WiFi. Reception staff very, very helpful with good English and knowledge of the area. Good breakfast. Metro, excellent tourist office 10 minutes walk.

    « Average lilliput hotel »

    the hotel is excelently located, marvellous views of fourviere once you are in the street. Clean and with two excellent things: wifi connection and the bed. On the other hand being at this hotel was like playing tetris with yourself from the bed to the door to the shower and....i prefer not to speak about the toilet, you should be a really short guy to be comfortable at this place...

    « Central hotel in Lyon, easy park available »

    The position is absolutely good to visit the center: near to the river, it's easy to reach, a park (not for free) is available just few meters away and it's ok to start for a walking visit to the historic center or the shopping area. Inside the rooms are small (expecially the bathroom) but comfortable; the breakfast is ok.

    « Very nice. »

    Very nice hotel in the city centre. Easy to reach. Good position, it is very close to a few metro stations. Fantastic staff. They are all so kind and nice... A good hotel to stay at a very good price. Rooms are not so big, but very nice and clean. I like it.
