The staff were very helpful & friendly, the room was small but we were only sleeping in it so that made no odds. Sound proofing is not brilliant. The breakfast cost €10 which wasn't too bad bearing in mind the convenience. It was more than the standard coffee & croissant. Some of the rooms are only accessible by a flight of stairs. It was warm, clean & dry - what more could you ask for?

Very convenient and safe location, on pedestrian shopping street just off Place Bellecour, so near to Metro. A good choice of restaurants 5 mins walk away. Bedroom/bathroom clean and modern. Wi-fi excellent (I was on same floor as reception.) Very little external noise as no traffic outside. Breakfast at €10 is fair value if you make use of the buffet items: ham, cheese, yoghurt, fruit etc. I would stay here again, certainly.

The hotel is much nicer than it appears in the pictures. I was really impressed with the size of my single room and how clean and comfortable it was for the price. The bathroom was a bit small which might bother some people, but it worked fine for me. Will definitely stay there again when I go back to Lyon!

It's a bit noisy as the windows don't protect against street noises (cleaning, ...)

great hotel in the real centre of lyon, but very quiet rooms. It was a great stay in lyon, the room was large enough for 1 person, very clean. i did not book breakfast, therefore i cannot say anything about that. will definitely come back if ever possible. The price is okay, not the best, but the hotel was perfect located, so it was acceptable. I would definitely recommend it.

Bien situé dans le coeur de Lyon (près de la place Bellecour) mais : 1/ Petit déjeuner trop cher. 2/ Les alentours sont bruyants et la chambre n'est pas bien aérée (pas de clim). 3/ Beaucoup trop petit pour deux personnes : il est quasiment impossible de circuler dans la chambre. Le coi salle de bains est rikiki !

Very friendly staff and clean room, very basic: it has what you need and not more. The only minus was that it was quite cold in the room (we were there in January).

My stay in Lyon was originally for 3 nights but due to the discomfort of the room, I left Lyon after staying for 2. Imagine how bad the room was.

The hotel was fine, the rooms were very small, but clean, and it is very well located. My only complaint would be that they tried to charge me for breakfast when it is clearly indicated that it is included when you enter the front door.
