My partner and I visited beautiful Lyon and decided to stay at this Mercure location. The location is okay, it is walking distance to some of Lyon's attractions. The hotel staff was quite friendly and helpful, they would call restaurants to make reservations and make suggestions for a variety of other restaurants and attractions. I found the rooms to be...

We had a lovely long weekend city break just before Christmas with friends. The hotel is well placed for Lyon's extensive public transport, and in easy walking distance to downtown Lyon and on to the old city which is really quaint and typically old France. The staff were very friendly and helpful We had the buffet breakfast each morning and...

Stayed here for three nights on a mini-break in Lyon. I originally looked at some of the more expensive hotels on the Presqu'Ile, but realised it was only about a ten minute walk from the Saxe Lafayette to the centre. Its not an especially inspiring location, but is only a short walk to the shops and restaurants, and is also...

Cleaners, maintenance men making a lot of noise from early in the morning. Hotel nice but expensive. Reception staff very helpful except one man with dark skin. He was very angry for no reason and is rude to his colleagues and customers. Serious attitude!

I spent one night there (from 23.00pm to 7.00 am) with a friend in a twin room and we paid about 130€. If you want the breakfast it's 18€ more, if you just want to use the parking it's 24€ more for just one night !!! Ohhh and we asked if we can have the car for 7 am in...

Stayed here as part of a technical session that was being held there. Would not have chosen it otherwise. Newly renovated lobby, nice, clean, relatively large rooms, reasonable priced. Internet was free, but I opted for the higher data rate version for a fee (I think it was 9 Euro a day). Breakfast buffer was good, but not terribly varied....

It is well located and the main square is nearby. The old city is ten minutes away on foot. The rooms are small but very comfortable. The bathroom was new and clean. Although I don't watch television, I was impressed by the large screen tv on the wall. The sheets were so white that you can feel the cleanness. There...

Stayed at this hotel many times. Rooms have been redecorated, minimalistic design, clean and well presented. Room service isn't very good. You can only order hot food from 1230-1400 and 1900 - 2300. The night receptionist lacks charm and is quite rude. Day staff are far more helpful and friendly. The hotel is well located and ideal for visiting down...

I chose this hotel rather than another Mercure nearer to the office based on the fact that it has a gym and a pool. I was quite disappointed by the offering though: the gym and the pool only open at 7.30 which is far too late if you need to get to work for 9am. The pool is the tiniest...
