The Alexandra is a budget hotel in Lyon with a lift boasting an excellent location in the city centre, just a short distance from the beautiful square of Place Bellecour and Perrache metro and train station.

Well connected with public transport!

The Alexandra hotel is ideally located for making the most of the city's public transport system, including the metro, buses and trams. The Line A Ampere metro stop is right in front of the complex. But for guests light on their feet, a stroll to the city center is also possible. This Lyon holiday city accommodation offers guests affordable accommodation while still providing luxury and comfort. The staff at the city hotel Alexandra are available anytime of the day to give advice and support to guests. No problem is too big or too small for the polite, friendly and well trained staff.

The forgotten city!

Often outshone by its neighboring cities of Paris and Marseille, Lyon has much charm and warmth to offer its visitors. It has been known for many centuries as the cuisine capital of France, partly due to the fact that many of the countries world renowned chiefs have made the city their home, and that the vineyards of Beaujolais and Cotes du Rhone are located North and South of the city respectively.

Restaurants in the city serve many traditional and local dishes which are often accompanied by a glass of wine from one of these famous vineyards. The area is renowned for a number of dishes, like andouillette (a sausage of coarsely cut tripe) and Salade Lyonnais (lettuce with bacon, croutons and a poached egg).

Roman Theatre!

The Odeon of Lyon is an ancient Roman Theatre, built into the side of a hill that leads up to the modern day Croix Rousse. It was thought that this theatre was the sight of Christian Martyrdom in 177 but this conclusion was later proved to be wrong. Today the amphitheatre of the 3 Gauls is a small ruin, barely noticeable in the small town.

Coming from Paris, this hotel was 100 times better for the price. VERY nice hotel. 10' ceilings in room. Only problem I had was lousy WiFi speeds. 5 min to access Itunes store. Forever to send mail with photos, etc. Room 23 had beautiful views of plaza but don't bother opening beautiful huge french windows unless you like a cigarette smoke filled room.
