Rhône Express takes you from the airport to the railway/metro/bus station in Lyon called Gare de la Part-Dieu.

Stayed a couple of days and found the room nice and comfortable. Strange chest height shower in the bath and a stranger toilet looking thing which was great for washing my feet in! On a serious note, the stay was really quiet. No doors slamming through the night. The noise from outside (window open - no a/c) was minimal; what... More

We got a very good welcome from the guy at reception, he gave us a map and his English was good. The place is clean and nice decor. The negative parts were: There is free parking but it's on the street. We have a brand new car and we therefore decided to pay the 11 euro a night for car... More
