I asked reception for help with a print out. I was in a bit of a confused state as I don't speak good French. The staff settled me . Kindly printed my document and gave gave me a free espresso. The décor is lovely . Simple early century cottage style. Highly recommend you visit even if just for a coffee.

We stayed here overnight during our visit to Lyon. This is a wonderful, homely and cozy family run hotel right at the center of the city. Major tourist attractions like Vieux Lyon, Basilique Notre Dame and Musee des Beaux-Arts are within a radius of 1 km. The hotel is also conveniently located within five minutes from the Perrache rail station...

We spent one night in Lyon on a road trip and stayed here. It was a cute room with AC and close to the river, so it was easy to walk around the city with not a lot of time to explore! Skip the breakfast - it's all bread or cheap pastries. Cheaper to opt for something out, even if...

The reviews for this hotel were quite good, so we booked a room for 2 nights in Hotel du Simplon for a city trip to Lyon. We were disappointed. The room was very loud and we could hear everything from the street and the bad room was small. The breakfast room was a mess: In additionation to bad coffee there...

We stayed in this hotel for one week and were very comfortable. It is a lovely place, with lots of individual charm. We had a twin room, not large, but enough space and with good storage and a good sized shower room. It was well decorated, spotless and towels were changed several times during our stay.

We picked this hotel due to its central location and low price, and were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. The hotel is charming, decorated in a 1920's style, with very helpful staff and quiet rooms. Rooms were small but plenty of storage space and comfy beds, no issues at all. Again, a stand out for the price paid...
