Fair 4.0
We asked for a taxi to be ordered in the morning and they forgot. They were not helpful nor friendly when asking about the city. Pictures seemed deceiving to what the rooms were actually like. Pro seemed to be the location.

Short pleasant visit to Lyon arrived by train
The staff were friendly and helpful, hotel was close to tramline and Big Bus stop, breakfast was good but on check out tax was added to the quoted price. The Confluence shopping Centre is an easy walk. There were plenty of eating places nearby. We went to dine at hotel restaurant and menu had changed from that advertised. It was hand written and hard to understand also no one else in the restaurant which wasn't promising so we dined elsewhere.
