No frills but great location for travellers

Posted May 11, 2017
This hotel is a good choice for low frills but perfect location for a traveller. The service was courteous and effective, the room small and basic but clean, for and additional few, a breakfast was provided - and located right outside the train / metro / tram / bus station and next to shopping and dining option. You can walk to tourist attractions and all this for a great price.

Will not return!

Posted Apr 16, 2017
There was no air conditioning in the room. When asked, first they told me is was too noisy that they had to disconect it (??). Next morning I was told they disconected it because it was not needed. We had to open the window because it was hot, but then, there was a lot of noise coming from the train station, which is just across the street. Also, the carpet is wear; must be changed.

Staff was friendly. Room and hotel inner ambience was clean, comfortable. Occasionally Internet connectivity was an issue. For 2 out of 5 days, I had to come out of room to get even a weak signal.

Beside the central station

Posted Oct 31, 2016
Location: Next to the central station 5 minutes to many kebab houses, bakeries and cafes 15 minutes walk from the Lyon food halls 25 minutes to the Old Town
Stayed here for 3 nights in mid-September. Check-in was quick and easy; reception staff spoke English and were perfectly pleasant. Room was spacious with a double bed and small desk. Bathroom was clean with a very good power shower. However, the air conditioning in the room was broken and the WiFi was temperamental. Also, the window frame was dirty and the outside ledge (about a foot lower than the window) was littered with rubbish (bottles and shoes, either thrown up or out of windows). Breakfast of coffee, crossaints, cheese, cold meats and boiled eggs was decent enough. Overall, value for money was good and location was convenient. Hotel needs a little bit of a refurb, but otherwise was adequate.

Located on same square as main train station, cro

Posted Oct 30, 2016
Pros: Location and noise control
Cons: Institutional feel about supplies and barely satisfactory furnishings
Location: all conceivable public transportation at the front door. Dining and shopping across the street. 30 minute walk towards old sections of town
Low three star hotel. Good security and no noise from the outside.

Not for people using a GPS

Posted Oct 5, 2016 on Orbitz
Location: I was told that the Athena will disappear for extension of the train station
Garage: Even the Paris Police doesn't know where the Athena's garage entrance is! Staff training: The staff at the Reception doesn't know the difference between Wi Fi, Internet and e-mails The night staff is useless over weekends The hotel IBM (not Apple) computer is useful
