The location of this hotel, is great and even though it's on a busy street, there is no noise inside the room. The bathroom was one of the largest we had in France. Staff was very helpful. The only negative is that the elevator doesn't go to the lobby, so you may have to carry your bags up one flight of stairs.

The Elysee hotel’s website states that the hotel is ‘in the most prestigious district in the center of Lyon’. I agree that it is located in a nice area. HOWEVER, if you have a car, I would never consider this hotel or any hotel in Lyon’s old town area. We arrived in the area a little after 2p on a weekday and not only was traffic horrendous, parking options were non-existent. We had checked with the hotel ahead of time about where we’d be able to park and was told the closest parking garage. The problem was that the recommended garage and every nearby garage was full and there were lines waiting for open spaces. My husband who wasn’t on the trip even tried calling the hotel for suggestions on what to do about parking but found the language barrier was an issue. The hotel provided the names of 2 other garages but couldn’t help beyond that. Those garages were also full. To be honest, I’d avoid having a car in Lyon at all during the week. After work hours, the garages appear to open up but it’s a lesson in frustration until that happens. We were driving around for a couple hours, left city center and came back at the end of the workday. It impacted our entire schedule for the afternoon.
Beyond the parking issue, the hotel met our needs but is very basic. It’s an old hotel and doesn’t appear to have been updated – though clean and had the basic necessities. The biggest plus is air conditioning! There are 2 levels of stairs up to the 1st floor where there is a very tiny elevator. That means you must carry your luggage up 2 flights and then can take turns using the elevator if you’re not staying in a 1st floor room.
Personally, I’d stay outside of the city center and use public transportation to get around.

This hotel is located in Lyon city center. It is clean and quiet, given its location. The staff spoke English, and was friendly and helpful. Room is small, pretty standard for European hotels. Be advised: our room had tub with hand shower only, no shower curtain... so showering was done from sitting position. Work OK, but a little awkward. Overall I would say the Elysee is a good choice for a short stay in Lyon.

Positives:
Location Excellent. Bed quality excellent. Friendliness of management excellent. Cleanliness excellent.
The price I paid for my room (January) I would describe as "on a low budget" - so I did not expect perfection from the hotel. I stayed on the top floor (floor 6) - which comprises single rooms .Likely the quietest floor (except when people on mobile phones!) - but stairs involved. Choose room w window not skylight if you can afford - fresh air then available if wanted.

Could be better:
Pillows too small and the dooner/quilt not long enough for my liking.
Breakfast: Consists of pastries and yoghurt only - tasty but expensive. Espresso coffee ordered was more like strongish American coffee - not favoured by Australians used to strong coffee.

Rooms are NOT soundproofed to the corridor or adjoining bedrooms - you can hear conversations and movements of other guests when they are in their room and especially in the corridor. The bathroom in my room adjoined another bathroom- I could hear everything, my bathroom door could not close to reduce sound. Also loud generator goes on for 1 hour 2 x day - 11 am & 5 pm.

Bathroom amenities are limited to a tiny piece of soap and satchel of shampoo/body wash (but it is replaced daily). Old fashioned hair dryer attached to the wall. Shower stall is small - and I'm slim and constantly bumped the walls while washing - however a lot of older hotels are like this.

No kettle, fridge, cup, bottled water.
