Central hotel - good for b usiness travellersPosted Apr 13, 2014
Pros: Central location and helful staff.
Cons: Facilities to make hot drinks.
Location: In the heart of the shopping area, close to restaurants, bistros and cafes and handy for access to the Metro.
The hotel is in a central location and handy for Metro stations. It is a very straightforward journey to and from the airport using the Rhone Express and the "A" metro line as the Ampere-Victor Hugo Station is literally just across the pedestrian shopping area from the hotel. The hotel is in the heart of the shopping area and in close proximity to both the rivers Rhone and Saone. It is secure particularly important for sole female travellers), there is a secure garage for those who drive to the hotel and there is free WiFi throughout. The rooms and bathrooms are clean - facilities to make tea or coffee would have been a welcome addition. Breakfasts were good but a little expensive at 16 Euro. I cannot praise the hotel staff too highly - they are unfailingly pleasant and courteous and they all went the extra mile to help when I had a problem!

No frills, clean, accessible,free wifi, nice staffPosted Feb 16, 2014
For the amount we paid, we were pleasantly surprised with the hotel. We were greeted with friendly staff all of whom spoke perfect English, helpful & accommodating. Room was very clean and well maintained. They changed towels daily and had the room cleaned before 12 noon. Basic bathroom amenities. New bathroom fixtures, although the thin wooden bathroom countertop had cracks. They served continental breakfast in the small parlor & it a very warm, homey feel. There's free wifi in the room It is conveniently located: walking distance to Bellecour, between Saone and Rhone, there's a metro station just a few steps away. There are many places to eat nearby, and many choices as well- cafés,brasserie,pasta, brioche, fish and chips, etc, even McDonald's just across. There's a carrefour around the corner. It's 5 minutes away from Chez Abel, truly authentic bouchon for those who want traditional lyonnaise dining. Also in the area is a quaint antique shop, modern art gallery, fromagerie, butcher and sausage shop, boulangerie, and fishmonger! There are many schools in the area so you will hear constant voices of children and teens from the street if you leave your windows open. We didn't mind it and actually felt safe and secure knowing there are always young families walking around. If you don't like the noise, just close your windows. Best of all, there was a Benedictine abbey very close by and the Lyon cathedral about 15 minutes away for our daily masses!

Elegant = small/cramped roomsPosted Oct 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
Elegant room 51 was cramped/tiny and with dangerous low wooden beam butlarge bathroom.Moved to marginally larger/less cramped room of normal height. Smallest rooms ever stayed in! All well decorated/clean/equipped. Hotel manageer very helpful. Elegant rooms are smallest/cheapest and face onto main road/place ampere opposite Macdonalds [closes at 1am] Well away from restaurants etc.Rather cramped breakfast room.

The room we had was incredibly small even by European standards. Otherwise location was great to see the old city and the view of the square and cathedral on the hill out our window was incredible

Tiny,but all we neededPosted Sep 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is probably the smallest hotel room we have stayed in,but it met most of our needs. The breakfast was a huge disappointment...insulting, almost.other than that it was clean, convenient,and the staff were very helpful and courteous.

Excellent location, cute boutique hotelPosted Jun 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
The rooms are small. I could not open my medium size luggage anywhere but on the bed. But I read most Lyon hotels are small. This was the smallest I ever spent in. But at least the ceiling was high. Not recommended for wide people. I'm a small girl and I fit perfectly. Can see larger ppl having trouble. The shower is about 3'x3' with a 2' wide entrance. Location is excellent. Can see the train station Lyon Pechache from outside. It's less than 5 mins walk away. Lots of shopping and Old Lyon is about 10mins in the other direction. Near a market and Mc Dona;ds is across the street and open until 1am!!! If you get a room facing the street, it's a bit loud as ppl like to hang out near McDonalds and the mini square next to it.

Small but functionalPosted May 10, 2013
Great functional shower. Bedroom itself very small and limited space to put suitcases and clothing. Good location for subway.

Great Location - A/C was not turned onPosted May 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
In general the staff were courteous and the manager had a workable english language skill. The breakfast was meager for the money. The air conditioner was turned off and our room had no outside window. Ask for a room with a window but be warned the street is noisy at night into the wee small hours of the morning. Confirm with the hotel when their air conditioning will be on as this appeared to be a seasonal thing (we were there in late April) Close (two blocks) to the train station but no noticeable noise from the trains.
