We completed our 4 week drive tour of France with what we thought based on price was going to be a luxury 3 night stay at this hotel. I guess we were a little naive compared with the room rates and facilities experience in largely rural France during our previous 4 weeks. Our room, though small, which was not a...

Great hotel with small but nicely decorated rooms with all amenities one good need. Excellent location with walking distance to Vieux Lyon as well as the shopping districts. The breakfast buffé in the morning had both a great assortment of cold dishes as well as some hot. I have stayed at a few different hotels in down town Lyon and...

We stayed here 2 nights. Arrived from Lyon airport direct to Part-Dieu train station on the Rhône Express (25€ per person for both ways, pre-purchased online). We took a cab from Part-Dieu to hotel which was 8€ for approx. a 10 min. ride. The hotel is wonderfully located, within walking distance of most attractions in Lyon and just a few...

We only had one night here but the bed was as hard as a rock, the pillows were awful. We were only given two small sachets of coffee and paper cups and plastic glasses which were also tiny. The location was good but was not a good start when there were four staff smoking outside and no one inside at...

Very nice and quiet hotel in the heart of the beautiful city of Lyon. The hotel is a typical Mercure styled. I had a nice corner room on the 4th floor. rooms are fresh, quiet but not so big. the breakfast room is a bit crowded.

The hotel is excellent, clean and excellent room service, but the size of the rooms is very small and the food menu is very simple does not suit all tastes but in general very good hotel there is a free wifi and bein sport channels for watching your best team matches

I had a one night stay. The location is excellent, very central. I was given a privilege room (as per my Accor Platinum card perks), which was a little on the small side. It was very tastefully decorated, with a kettle, Nespresso machine and a complimentary soft-drink minibar. The bed was very comfortable, and the shower worked well. I didn't...

Elegant, modern style, but room is very small. Bed comfortable - location is B+. The people are very helpful, and the check-in is FAST They should consider in-room minibars! they have the fridge, so it should be ready to go Price is pretty good so I cant complain!

Good hotel breakfast was ok staff are helpful and the room were clean. All in all not bad I wouldn't be going back here in a hurry. Not because it's bad just because I would try someplace else for a change.

Great hotel for a central Lyon visit. Small reception / lounge / bar area. Rooms are small and shower room tiny, but all OK. Excellent hotel staff with eager to help attitude. Quiet street (no night noise) but really close to the rivers in either direction, the shopping centre, the old town, and the lanes of bars and restaurants -...
