        • Older travelers

          Friendly, helpful front desk staff. Most were OK with English. Lovely old fashioned elevator. Well maintained hotel.

          A minor quibble really, but when breakfast time was busy (Saturday morning particularly), buffet breakfast supplies were not refilled promptly nor tables relaid. As they knew their numbers they should have put more staff on.

          Location couldn't be much better in Lyon with a good value point on pricing. Cool elevator as well!

          Decent all around though it could probably use some updating soon in terms of decor of rooms.

        • Group of friends

          Excellent location in central Lyon. Really good breakfast and charming, though quite old fashioned interior.

          top location but no noise at night, big room, nice vintage interior, quality breakfast, very friendly staff

        • Family with children

          The staff were extremely efficient and helpful and spoke English which was a bonus! It is extremely well located.

          The only suggestion is that the rooms could be ready for a revamp. They were old, but at least they were very clean and comfortable.

        • Family with children

          Perfect location: close to main things to see, restaurants and shopping. Very pleasant staff. Spacious, comfortable and well decorated room. Excellent selection for breakfast.

          2 minor issues: 1- We were there during the Easter weekend and at night we could sometimes hear the street noise. But the noise of the air conditioning covered most of the street noise and didn't prevent us from falling asleep. 2- Squeaky floor in the room.

          Location & staff

          The old double door style elevator is lovely to see, but a nightmare to get in and out of, especially with luggage. Front door of the hotel is heavy and difficult to manoever with luggage. They need an automated door. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful.

          Beautiful hotel with a lot of charm. Excellent hotel location in the middle of the shopping area and in walking distance to all the best bouchon's of Lyon. Superb breakfast buffet.

          Hotel bed was not very comfortable and there was something wrong with the heating system

          • Average rating
        • Couple

          Hotel is conveniently located in the center. Very good and comfortable beds.

          The floor in the bathroom is rather cold - it could use come kind of carpet.

        • Couple

          The roms are fine for the vintage lovers, we had a good one with a great view over town.

          The breakfast (was included) could be better - the tea water for example was cold. The bar is so unfriendly looking (no windows); nobody is there, although it is advertized as a place to spend some time

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          Excellent location right in the center of the shopping district, friendly staff, charming decor, excellent breakfast, quiet room, updated bathroom.

          The bathtub could have been cleaned a bit better, and for some strange reason - perhaps cultural - there was no shower curtain provided, making a shower a rather wet affair.

          The suits are very spacious and well-decorated. Nice views from the rooms. Very nice old lift.

          Someone forgot a jacket in our room and it was also lot of web on balcony.
