in a great spot. We had a nice room overlooking Place Bellecour. The four different members of staff that we dealt with were all extremely helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Location

The hotel is in a great location with helpful staff. My room was very close to reception so I was worried about noise but it wasn't an issue. I would stay here again.

Conveniently located with access to most things.

Posted Nov 24, 2017
Pros: The decor, building and comfort
Cons: Access to rooms via a lift would be nice but as explained, not really in keeping with the building
Location: Near a great little bar and grill across the square and a big wheel to give you a view of the city, lots of shops and 2 cashpoints nearby.
Really great place, very 'French' in decor and appeal. Helpful staff and lovely room, no complaints really, a lift might have been good but not in keeping with the building so happy to accept without.

Weekend stay

Posted Oct 17, 2017 on Hotels
The best part of the hotel - it's central location. Easy walking distance from Old Town, bushons, shopping, etc. The square is very busy on the weekends - we thought it was a special occasion but understood it is often used for different kind of social activities. Our room was small and very basic - did not really have any charm or style. It was reasonably comfortable as we only came there to sleep at night. I would have expected a bit more form thue 3 star hotel. Did not take breakfast& Receptionists were friendly.

Hotel Bayard Bellecour

Posted Sep 1, 2017
Pros: Very clean and modern (if a tad compact) bathroom. Pleasant staff Great location
Cons: The room needs some freshening up with paint.
Recent two day stay in Lyon. The painted (not wall-papered) parts of the room could do with a freshen-up. Nothing major, but it should be on the 'to do' list for this year. The room was celan and well-presented, and if I was staying by myself or just on a business trip and all you want is a nice tidy room, good bed and convenient place to drop your bags and then explore the town, it's perfectly O.K. If you want a romantic stay when you really want lovely surroundings to impress your lady love, I would want something a little more 'polished'. The entry to the hotel via the buildings common corridor is also a little 'meh'. A bit bland/functional. The front if the hotel is near a traffic intersection. No problem in cooler weather with the windows closed, but in summer when you open the windows for fresh air, the car noise is noticeable.

Small but charming and GREAT location.

Posted Jan 25, 2017
This hotel is small and does not have many amenities. The restroom and shower are very small but this is typical of European hotels. The location CANNOT be beat!! Right in front of place bellecour. The staff was great. Very nice and they always struck up a conversation with me. I'm learning French and they took the time to practice it with me. If you want luxury, this isn't for you. But if you are looking for a hotel with a great location and charming feel, this is the right place for you.
