Hotel de la Croix Rousse - Lyon

157 Boulevard De La Croix Rousse - Lyon

Price starting from 50.00

The Hotel de la Croix Rousse is a nice hotel in the Lyon city center, located in the famous La Croix Rousse district, one of the most charming neighborhoods of the town. The hotel was traditionally home to many of Lyon’s silk weavers, or canuts, who have contributed much to the city's history. A stone's throw away from the hotel, you can still see original looms in action at the Maison des Canuts where silk is still woven and can be purchased in house.

Located right in front of the Hénon metro station, Hotel de la Croix Rousse has free wireless Internet access throughout and offers 29 guestrooms equipped with all the modern comforts, including a flat-screen TV. The hotel is a smoke-free property.

Fine hotel, clean and welcoming, good value. Location is excellent, within walking distance of Lyon centre, but it's a steep uphill coming back. Metro however is located almost right outside the hotel and the service is good.

Other than the fair right outside the hotel, which was noisy until about 11pm, we enjoyed our stay. The hotel met our expectations - the family who ran the hotel were very keen to please.

Aside from the issue that we booked for 3 days and discovered afterward from one of your mail that there were only 2 nights available (thank you for your timely communication) everything went as expected. This is a traditional french hotel, like there were so many in the 60s / 70s. It is very well located in the center of La Croix-Rousse, also very close to the metro. The building is typical of the local traditional architecture. The amenities are simple and adequate for travel as long as you are not looking for a luxury hotel.

A bit on the shabby side due to the age of the hotel, but the room was extremely large with a nice view of the distant St. Jean cathedral. There was a double and THREE single beds with plenty to space between! The TV was microscopic, but for one night it was fine. The location is a bit far from Old Lyon. We were charged a bit higher than what was quoted through

The Hotel is in the northern part of the city not in the south as shown in the venere map. Go to their homepage and look at that map.

A pretty blah hotel. Small, characterless rooms which weren't at all appealing. I wouldn't stay here again.

Although the staff were quite helpful the quality of the hotel was very basic indeed!!! A very small room, with old and rickety furniture in a noisy corridor... The bathroom was adequate but just that, adequate. In spite of what is indicated on the website, there was no internet access in the hotel. There were no opportunities to eat in the evening apart from a local cafe which is not necessarily suitable for a woman on her own. Breakfast was expensive for the quality and quantity on offer. I did not take it. I was very disappointed and expected better for 57 euros a night. Campanile and Ibis hotels offer better value for money. The hotel needs a complete refurbishment; it is however well situated next to a "metro" station.
