Perhaps the best hotel bargain in a great city
Posted Jul 21, 2016
The Mercure Lyon Centre Beaux Arts is almost just as it sounds: a boutique hotel perfectly located in the absolute center of Lyon with a friendly and helpful staff throughout the hotel and tidy, spotless rooms. I wrote "almost" because "Mercure" might suggest a standard chain hotel The Beaux Arts Hotel is actually an older hotel flawlessly updated after being acquired by Mercure. The "4" for facilities is only because the lobby, the rooms, the elevator and the breakfast area are all a bit cramped. But the hotel is priced accordingly, which in the end makes it a great bargain, a virtual steal. Lyon was very hot during our stay, but our wonderfully air-conditioned room was always an oasis of comfort whenever we returned, even briefly. Bottom line: if we were to return to Lyon tomorrow, I would look no further but would book a room at this hotel unhesitatingly!
