Comfortable small 2* hotel .Posted Jun 14, 2014
Pros: The very friendly, helpful staff. The cleanliness of the room - the maids certainly did a wonderful job.
Cons: Without doubt, the wifi reception. It is spasmodic at best. Not important for everyone but I need to have regular contact with overseas contacts -
Location: The location is excellent. Tram/bus service right outside the front door and the main train station within a stone's throw. Plenty of local restaurant
This is only a 2* hotel so that needs to be bourne in mind. Noise was the biggest problem for me and I had to complain to neighbours on 3 separate occasions regarding the noise from their room in the early hours of the morning, The doors to the rooms need serious attention It's impossible to close them quietly because of the top hinge so without fail EVERY door bangs with people coming and going at all hours. This problem, together with the poor quality wifi , will prohibit my staying here again. Whenever I travel I need to have good access to email and internet and this was impossible on numerous occasions. The connection is not strong enough for the size of the hotel .

Lyon for one dayPosted Sep 24, 2012
Pros: Daytime location and it had a lift which is always good.
Cons: Slight noise from street in the early evening if you have your window open
Location: Close to train and transport
It is next door to a train station. Having said that I could not hear the trains. I was to leave Lyon via a different train station and the Hotel staff told me about the tram outside that goes directly to the other station 1.65E. Very helpful and it took about 20minutes. As a woman travelling on my own this Hotel is located in an area That I would be nervous About walking around at night alone but during the day I felt safe. If you walk through the train station you are in one of the main streets through to the shops restaurants and a good walk to the old town across the river and the cathedral etc. all achievable even if you only have a few hours in Lyon. There were food markets on in the square on Friday nights by the train station 2 minute walk from Hotel. The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful as I do not speak French. The breakfast was everything that I needed. Staying there was a good experience my room was small and clean and perfectly adequate.

This hotel is indeed in a sketchy part of town. Down the street where I parked my car was hookers but besides that, it was fine. I parked for free on the city street about 2 streets down to save money on the paid parking. There are a few shawarma (kabob) places around to eat. The hotel room was clean and fine and for two students driving around France, it did the job. The location is right next to the train station and very close to walk around the main parts of Lyon. Ask the hotel manager for a map of Lyon if you need one.

Hotel Berlioz, more like a HostelPosted Jul 1, 2010 on Hotels.com
The room was tiny but clean, it reminded me of my boarding school days. The shower stall was super small, resulting in me laughing everytime I had a shower. I'm already petite but every turn made me bump into something. The hotel is in Perrache, it isn't the best neighborhood (has quite a few unsavory characters) but it is great in terms of accessibility. Trains, trams, buses.... Definitely not recommended for a single girl traveling.

good valuePosted Aug 13, 2009
the people at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. you can take a tram striaght from the train station or from the airport to the hotel. It's in a pretty convenient location. The staff they were pretty easy going and when they threw out our plastic camping dishes becuase they looked like garbage to the maid the person at the desk helped us pick through the day's garbage to retrieve them. Lyon is a lovely city.

Good locationPosted Jul 16, 2009
We 4 friends found this an excellent location just off the main centre: easy to walk to all the main attractions & a tram stop right outside the front door for easy access to the TGV station & other attractions a bit further out. The hotel proprietors/managers were extrememy helful. The only possible downside was the small size of the bedrooms but we only needed somewhere to sleep so that was OK. We enjoyed walking through the main station to get to the town centre.

Budget stay in LyonPosted May 19, 2009
Hotels in Lyon can be VERY expensive, If you're looking for a low cost stay in Lyon, then this may suit your needs. The hotel is located next to the Perrache rail station, although the old building was double glazed and there was no noize disturbance from there. Free Wireless Internet and flat screen TV was good. However the stairs, lift and Corridors are very cramped. The staff were great and helpful. The old town is a 15 minute walk away.

Clean and comfortablePosted Feb 19, 2009 on Hotels.com
Comfortable and clean room; great location near Perrache, Lyon trams and Metro lines; comfortable walk to pedestrian shopping areas, old city, Rhone and Saone. WiFi signal was too weak in room, but ok in Lobby. Local phone calls from room are trop cher.
