        Staff were helpful.

        Breakfast was quite disappointing for €15.

      • Couple

        Clean and nice room, bed was big enough for two and I found it comfortable, mini-fridge and hair-dryer were nice. Bathtub was another nice thing to have. Hotel was near to tram stop, couple minutes walk only.

        Limited facilities, and those that were there were closed in weekends (like bar and restaurant).

        • Average rating
      • Single

        The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I needed a hotel close to the Lyon Conference Centre so this hotel was perfect. Its location next to the park was also very good if enjoy walking or jogging. Don't be put off by the distance the hotel is situated from the city centre. You can walk through the park and along the river and get into the centre of the city in 30-40 minutes, you then also get to experience Lyon.

        more than value for money. Close to communications - parking for privare cars. Thumbs up!

        • Average rating
      • Family with children

        Friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable beds. Secure parking. Near the park & convenient for exploring the city.

        The chairs in the room were not comfortable. There was no shower cap provided & no tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
