8.2.Very Good.
  • 6.0.Good

    Hotel located close to metro station with a few restaurants conveniently around. The bed was comfortable and the shower was nice. However, the room had a bit of an off smell. I don't know if that is always the case or they were having issues as the next day the lobby smelled like sewer and I got to witness a maintenance guy go off on one of the hotel managers about something leaking and him not being given the tools/opportunity to repair. Maybe all smells will disappear once the issue is fixed? Also (minor) the VIP amenity is free WiFy but everyone gets free Wifi...

    Nice clean and near public transport.

    Nice clean hotel, the only thing to change is the carpet in the rooms. The carpet looks clean however these days for hygiene and easy cleaning hotels should avoid them in the bedrooms. Hotel fairly well situated not far from public transport getting you to all touristic and shopping sites. I will stay there again.

    Laidback in Lyon

    Room was comfortably large and fresh with king size bed. Staff very helpful and friendly. Location is a little out of central area but that is accessible in 1 or 2 stops using close by metro. Street parking is payable Monday to Saturday, hotel can provide undercover parking for 12 euro/day.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Well maintained hotel in a relatively central area of Lyon. The room was comfortable and well equipped. Service was friendly but check in took a little while as there were 2 or 3 other customers who had problems with their keys not working. If you arrive late, there aren't too many options to find a late dinner and the restaurant has a rather limited late-night menu.

    Surprisingly good.

    Staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Breakfast was good. First impressions weren’t great as surrounding area doesn’t look great but once parked up in the garage me and my 7nyear old son walked 500m to a bar/restaurant the hotel recommended were again everyone was friendly and the food was great. Very pleasant stop off on our way to the south.
