Nice stay

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Johan S. Couples - 29/12/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel is a little too far from Lyon's real attractions - 15-20 minutes walk - but close to train station - So good alternative if you come by train. We came by car. Hotel parking is very expensive. Street parking was possible at this time of the year. But maybe risky. So we chose the safe and easy (valet parking). We took an room upgrade- not sure it was a good choice as rather expensive. Breakfast was very good. We tried the restaurant which also had a good service and meal was pleasant. Overall very positive experience apart from all the extras which added more than 100Euros !!

Whereas the room was clean, the bed was very poorly made. It did not cover the entire matress the way it was set. The shower gel was very dry and bad for my hair. I couldnt find any kind of toothpaste nor body lotion.

Anonymous Families - 19/12/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The location is very good, the bed was very comfortable, breakfast was good value for money. However, room (especially the bathroom) was too small for a 4 star. Certain items were not available in the room and had to be asked (bathrobe, slippers, towel (2 were given for 3 people). Would probably stay again for the location.

Well located, very good breakfast

I honestly expected better installations. Hotel needs general renovation of the main hall and restaurant areas, with more update finishings, materials and colors. Gym is a disaster as well as the swimming pool.

A very nice hotel in a convenient location. Ample breakfast and restaurant onsite plus a bar open late in night provide nice environment for work and pleasure.

I probably won’t recommend your hotel to anyone. The bed was not comfortable at all because it was too hard. It was also unbelievable that your hotel charges an hourly rate for early check-in.

Great service, it makes a difference

Stephen Business - 01/12/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I spent a two night stay and if there's nothing special about room (it could even deserve a bit of a refresh), I was positively surprised by the overall service and specifically the restaurant. I experienced both breakfast and dinner and besides being welcomed properly, the food was really great. Special mention for the breakfast, great choice and wonderful scrambled eggs.

Good stay

Our stay at your hotel was perfect for our business trip. There is a gentleman from Wales that works at the bar in the evening time and he is very helpful and friendly and was very attentive. He also makes very good Cocktails. This hotel is good for business travellers.

Susan Couples - 15/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We checked in online, so upon arrival we were given our key and directed to our room. The room was nicely decorated, with a small but efficient bathroom, plenty of electrical outlets, and very good lighting. The bed was a bit soft for my taste, but I like a very firm bed. The lift was conveniently located and fast. When we needed help late at night, the front desk responded quickly.

Efficiant hotel good location

Pleasant stay at this hotel. The room was very comfortable and spacious and quiet (overlooking a small street behind the hotel. Although the bathroom was small, the shower was excellent. It was a pity the restaurant was closed but the bar was pleasant and relaxing. The location of the hotel was exactly what I required. I recommend this hotel

Great hotel in good location, but lousy restaurant for dinner

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

karstenlinde Family - 29/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

We stayed in this hotel twice this summer as a stopover. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms nice, and you can easily get around town on foot while the car is parked safely in the hotel garage. While the breakfast is very good, definetely stay away from the restaurant for dinner! The Ceasars Salad had nothing to do with a Ceasars Salad, except maybe the price, and was simply not edible. The childrens menu was a piece of dry minced meat with a very small serving of fries, with a quality that McDonalds would have been ashamed of, and this with a price of 15 (!) Euro for a childrens menu. Instead, follow one of the restaurant recommendations of the front office staff.
