      • Older travelers

        This is an business hotel and nothing more.

        The rebuildingworks on the bar resulted in the act that the bar was not available. This could have been compensated by something...

        • Average rating
      • Family with children

        Free Wi-Fi Internet, Nespresso Coffe, Gym, Room with Terrace where to get tan.

        Sink not working properly in all bathroom.Tiny swimming pool, no space to swim.Breakfast not included for a 129€ night room.

        Great value for your money

        It might be a bit far from the city centre

        • Average rating
      • Older travelers

        Paper cups for the coffee & tea in rooms, thin towels, poor bedding- all unexpected in a hotel costing over £100 per night...

        • Average rating
      • Single

        The swimming pool was lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

        The bed in my room was very noisy when you moved about on it but the staff were very helpful and immediately offered me another room. The drinks in the bar were very expensive, over 12 Euros for a Gin and Tonic which contained very little gin, so avoid if possible

      • Family with children

        Spacious family room, great breakfast

        Was a little too far to walk into the centre of Lyon

      • Couple

        Nice hotel, I liked its Zen-like design

        • Average rating
      • Family with children

        The staff was very friendly and welcoming. There were tons of families staying there and they offered lots of nice things for the children that made them really enjoy their stay, like games, face-painting at brunch and of course the pool.

        The staff didn't really offer up much information about Lyon and I had to ask for a map. The location is really far from things including the Metro station. On their website map it shows the metro station being near but in actuality it is a 20 minute walk away.
