          well...the staff is ok but she did not pay attention to the bill and over charge me. and when i ask she give me a funny looking face..i told her i booked with discount and then she recheck again and didn't even say sorry..all she did not explain of the bill.

        • Couple
          7.0

          good location, price for value

          all night long noise from discotheque, noise ( drilling in walls) in the mornig from men working in the hotel ( I think they are renovating )

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Nice hotel but location undesirable after dark. No problem by day but after nightfall the perrache station (only access to city) is a very intimidating & potentially unsafe place. However a taxi from the centre only costs 7€, which when added to your hotel fee is still vastly cheaper than a similar standard hotel in the centre of Lyon.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Booked a large double room - well worth it. Close proximity to the train station was very useful and brought the price down. Yes, in the side streets there is evidence of prostitution but as the hotel is on the main route - trams and buses - there is no need to go down them. As a couple we walked through the station at 1.00 at night without feeling worried and intimitated.

          Duing the week the breakfast period was overseen and very well supervised by a dedicated professional employee. Unfortunately, for the guests, at the weekend he went on holiday. The next morning by 9.15 the fresh fruit salad was not replaced, the scrambled egg was left chilled in the unplugged heating unit, the cold meat was not replenished and fruit juice dispenser ran out!! The one serving lady, just could not cope on her own. The main desk staff should also have pointed out that the security boxes were by reception and not in the rooms.

        • Couple
          6.2

          Good position, near metro, rail station and the city centre

          the corridor restructuring

        • Couple
          7.8

          Very cosy and clean hotel next to Lyon Perrache train station and to a tramway stop. Our room was set on the courtyard side: because of this fact it was very quiet. Free and fast Wi-Fi connection. I would reccommend this hotel considering all these features.

          You have to cross the courtyard to reach the rooms: yet the path is completely covered by a roof. Our floor was under renewal: smell of fresh painting in the corridor, but not in the room.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          The double bed was too small, this isn't the real size of double bed. For 2 people it is hard to sleep in such a bed.

        • Group of friends
          4.6

          They posted notice about no electricity, but should have personally informed the guests upon check-in. The housekeeping came really early in the morning and never returned later in the day.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          It's location relative to the centre of the city and good transport to the airport.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          This was the second time stayed at this hotel, we chose just for a place of familiarity enroute north to Switzerland. The hotel has reasonable facilities, pretty standard Great Western design. The rooms are comfortable and clean with a good sense of security. If you don't mind a 10-15min walk to Plaza Bellacour then this will suite you. Secure parking only a short walk from hotel, with baggage drop off zone possible out front. Breakfasts are great at this hotel, if you want in house dining (though this comment is based on our stay time before this one).

          There are a few restaurant options close by, though not a large choice, therefore you really need to travel back toward the city centre to find a wide range of gustation options. This is the only hotel during our whole stay in Europe where on arrival, they had no record of our booking. This was not a hassle they were able to locate the reference after some investigating, this was a little upset easily resolved. Last time we visited, we were charged twice for a bar tab. So important to just keep a record of your booking and expenses. Not a reason not to stay here, just a note of caution.

        • Older travelers
          8.0

          Air conditioning was great as it happened to be very hot during our stay.

          There was only white bread on offer for breakfast, which was good otherwise.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Helpful reception staff. Easy arrangements for carpark, although it wasn't clear how far away this was & that you had to move the car by 8.30 am.

          Nobody to help with luggage or willing to try, except reception lady who didn't want to go far, naturally. A funny conglomeration of wings and staircases; not very attractive away from the entrance hall. Needs freshening.
