Very nicely located hotel in the center of old Lyon. I could walk everywhere from here. the staff is nice and helpful. I liked especially the free drinks you can get from the vintage fridge in the corridor and the nice terrace located at the second floor. For the cleanliness don't look in the corners but fair for a 3...

My husband and I stayed three nights at the hotel and loved every moment. The location is excellent, right in the heart of the old town, with bars and restaurants aplenty on the doorstep. You are also within easy reach of the main shopping areas of Lyon, meaning public transport was not necessary at all during our stay (although we...

Le College is perfectly situated to explore Vieux Lyon & the Presqu'Ile. The decor is quirky and original and the rooms, whist small are perfectly adequate for a short stay. The bedding and towels are good quality and is was spotlessly clean. The staff are friendly & helpful. Free bottled water & soft drinks are available from refrigerators on each...

Stayed here on a business trip – so someone else chose it, but glad they did. Initial impressions were of slight dottiness – rules for pupils at the door, giant pencils next to reception desk and TV playing old black and white kids' TV – but what could have been a tacky 'theme' hotel turned out to be a delight....

The College is perfectly located for seeing the Old Town as everything is accessible on foot. We loved the decor of the hotel which captured the 'college' atmosphere with great humour and style. The rooms are simple but have everything you need. The rooms are small and vary in 'smallness'. We had enough room for our 2 night stay but...

This hotel is little but unigue, everthing there is school related. I enjoyed especially a breakfest in class room (it was typical french - nutella, croissant, cheese, coffee meal). The room design was snow white (TV as well) with nice view on Fourviere. The location is real advantage if you come to Lyon to see Old Town and roman ruins.

Stayed in this unique hotel. Loved the decor and its fresh approach to style. It was very convenient to the sites of Vieux Lyon. We stayed on a weekend and agree that the Saturday night noise went on a bit longer than we would have liked. The sunday night experience was much quieter. Breakfast was very nice but we thought...

This hotel is convenient for seeing the old town of Lyon (as well as Presqu'ile), unfortunately this area is also very popular at night... we woke up every night due to screaming from the streets. We hadr a spacious room on the 7th floor. It was modern and clean. However, the shower had no power, so showering took forever. We...

This hotel is really convenient for the lovely old town of Lyon unfortunately it is near to many bars and noisy at night. The hotel is quirky but the rooms are rather average for the price, staff were helpful when requests made. Did not have breakfasts but had coffee and croissants at nearby bakeries.
