Very bad service

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

Lyhnild Business - 02/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

The restaurant service where very rude and not helpful. I even got sick from eating at the restaurant. They would often say they would help or get something and then never return. We often felt like we, the customers, where in the way of their job (which apparently wasn’t to help and service the customers). Most of the staff had an arrogant attitude. And the stay was even very pricey.

Dear Lyhnild, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your stay. We are very sorry that the food and beverage service did not meet your expectations. We have of course shared your feelings with the staff so that this does not happen again. We are sensitive to the satisfaction of our guests and their well-being during their stay. We hope to regain your trust very soon. We wish you a nice day Florence P. Quality Manager

Bad parking experiences

Customer review rating 1.5/5

X. C. Families - 09/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

When we checked in, we said we have car, but the reception didn't tell us any code we needed to enter and leave the parking. So when we wanted to leave or enter the parking, we didn't know how to open the door and it wastes a lot of time for us. Unhappy.

Dear C. X., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Novotel Lyon Gerland Musée des Confluences. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Novotel, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Florence P, Quality Manager

Everything was perfect - the room was clean and spacious. The hotel and pool were lovely and a big thumbs up for the professional, helpful and cheerful staff. The only little hiccup was not having covered parking for our vehicle because its height would not fit in to the underground parking lot.

Cher Client, L'équipe vous remercie de tout cœur pour votre commentaire 5* ... des vitamines que nous acceptons avec grand plaisir ! Au plaisir de vous revoir dans notre établissement Bon week-end Florence P. Responsable Qualité

Not really up to the Novotel expectations

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

Maurits B Family - 28/07/2020 TripAdvisor review

This was not we looked forward to. Actually this property did not even met the standards we have seen at Ibis Budget properties. The size of this place might have something to do with it, but we have waited in line for everything; getting in the parking (which was full),getting out of the garage to park somewhere else, checkin,... But the lines at breakfast were the worst. A second outlet would do the trick even in the Covid-period we are living in. We did not even go for a second cup of coffee or piece of banquette because of the 10min wait. However, the location of the hotel is great..just of the autoroute and with a shopping centre a 15min walk away you can find a good meal before turning in. We had a triple room but underneath the fold up were the souvenirs the previous guests left (chewing gum and wrappers)

Exellent service and accomodations

It was good, but was better other times. I was given a room with no desk or chairs and it made it difficult to do work. Also, was was not put in the mini bar daily.

Due to an event it was very busy in the hotel, the capacity of the elevators was far below the demand.

rajnikhurana Business - 01/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

Air conditioning was set at 5 degrees but yea it felt like 25 degrees. Asked for fan or cooler but neither was available. Staff offered a room change which was just opposite. Aor conditiong was a bit better but again the number os not correct. I set the ac at 5degree but but felt like 20-25. Food portion are of kids size! I'd rather order online and if possible avoid the stay. Bar staff was friendly though.

Terrible welcome tainted the stay

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Ben Couples - 09/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was fine. Location good. However, upon arrival we were confronted with the rudest hospitality 'professional' I've ever encountered. She was abrupt, confrontational, facetious and dismissive. It set our whole experience off on the wrong foot and massively tainted our experience of both the hotel and the brand.

Perfect stop off on the way to Geneva

Sonya B Family - 09/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

Stayed here as a family of four - myself, my husband and two teenage boys. Wasn’t sure what to expect but we certainly weren’t disappointed. The room was lovely, clean and spacious - it was a suite on the second floor. There were lots of little useful extras in the room including a stocked mini bar (complimentary soft drinks and nuts), a jar of sweets as well as the usual toiletries plus some extras eg shaving kits. The staff were very friendly and the bar attendant even went searching for a local channel showing the Community Shield game which certainly pleased my eldest son. He also recommended a rather nice local rosè wine which didn’t disappoint. There are plenty of things to keep younger and older children entertained including a small swimming pool, fuse-ball and an arcade game. There was a good selection of food available at the dinner buffet and breakfast. Overall, the hotel was extremely clean and well maintained as well as being ‘pretty to look at’ inside. We didn’t venture out so can’t comment on the location in relation to the City Centre. We would most definitely visit again if coming to this area.

Dear Customer, Thank you for expressing your satisfaction regarding the services of our hotel. I will take care to personally report to the teams your very positive feedback concerning them. Our location is indeed ideal, both for access on the outskirts of the city and in the city center. Looking forward to welcoming you back to our establishment.

Departure381 Family - 07/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

The trip lasted a week during which I have traveled Lyon. The sites suggested by Lyon Tourist information were interesting and I manages during this week to visit most of them. In my opinion, the best was a guided tour in the st jean area.

Service at checkin

Voyager231876 Family - 26/07/2018 TripAdvisor review

Our overall stay was quite good. Room was a good size with a balcony. Breakfast was good and staff on duty were excellent and very obliging. Staff at checkin desk could be more polite and hospitable. The lady who checked us in was rather cold and like a robot. When I later asked a member of staff for an iron who told me ask at reception. There was a large queue at reception and he walked off. Not helpful at all. Very disappointed on these aspects.

Susan W Family - 04/07/2018 TripAdvisor review

All in all it was a good choice for an overnight to split up the road trip south. The reason I did not give it a higher rating is because of the restaurant. Unbeknown to us they only offer a buffet on the weekends in summer. 22euros per person over 12 years old. The food was not appealing and there are few options within walking distance. after a day in the car it would have been nice to have had a choice or even a small meal option. We walked 5 min to Iberica for tapas and mojitos that were fabulous. This is a pet friendly hotel which is a bonus...
