Hotel agradable y bien comunicado

Cons: La habitación que tuve tiene muy poco espacio para dejar ropa.
El hotel se encuentra muy bien ubicado en la Presqu'île, al lado de la estación Perrache. El personal es muy amable y agradable. las dos salas comunes son muy acogedoras. Muy recomendable en cuanto calidad-precio.

Good choice close to transport

Posted Aug 14, 2015
We started our travels at this hotel three weeks ago and returned for our final two nights. T1 from Part-Dieu to Perrache. This room was a bit too small with twin beds that would have probably fitted better along rather than across the room. Again, clean with decent shower and wc. The air con vent in this room didn't seem to be doing anything either (as per our previous stay), despite the dial on the wall, so this time we threw the windows open and accepted the noise of the street, which is considerable. Again we didn't try the breakfast at 9.50 euros. Staff are friendly enough and the lounge reception area relaxed. Lyon is not short of food options and there are some great areas between Place Bellecour and l'Hotel de Ville. You can walk there along the main shopping street. The old town is also a great place to eat out. They award the official Bouchon certification yearly apparently so you can choose to go to one of those or take your pick from myriad authentic alternatives. Even the "official" ones are reasonably priced. The food is invariably simple but delicious and if you choose a fixed menu you will leave absolutely full. Walk back alongside the river Saone after dark. This hotel makes a decent base.

Très bon accueil chambre petite mais confortable. Le petit déjeuner est copieux mais un peu chère. Il y a sur réservation un parking fermé. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.

Decent hotel in good location

Posted Jul 23, 2015
A decent place to stay for two nights with a hint of character. Very close to Perrache on the T1 and everything you need within reach on foot or metro. Friendly welcome. Room of good size with well appointed en suite. Open shower so careful not to flood the place. They asked if air con was working suggesting they knew it wasn't! Did not try the breakfast so no comment. Tea and coffee facilities in room would have been nice. Decent TV. The cafe opposite is in fact a set of useful 24h vending machines. Take the funicular up the hill as it is cheap and delivers you to magnificent basilica and views over Lyon. Walk down through gardens.

Dear Guest, Thank you for this pleasant comment. All the staff of Simplon was happy to welcome you. We ask you if the air con works good because of the too hot air outside, we're afraid that you find a non cold room. We hope to see you again, and we'll advise you some other point of view of Lyon, or restaurants to try. Best regards
