It's establishments like Hotelo that make me shy away from the big hotel chains. Sometimes, nothing is more important than making a genuine connection between host and guest. I first experienced this hospitality when I inadvertently booked the wrong dates. I sent an email to change the dates and the next day, the team replied and said they moved my...

Like most reviewers have noted, it's not all about how up-to-date or luxurious a hotel is, it's all about the service and friendliness of staff and a level of cleanliness and attention to detail. In this respect Hotelo fits the bill. As soon as we arrived Olivier made us feel welcome and during our 4 night stay we had continual...

Stayed here one night on our return home from Nice. Olivier couldn't have been more helpful and our room was nicely decorated though I would agree with a previous comment about the shower area - a shower mat and perhaps a hand rail could avoid any risk of guests slipping getting out. The parking was good value for Lyon -...

We stayed here for a couple of nights and although the room was quite small, it was clean and modern. The shower was also powerful, although there was no shower curtain so the bathroom floor ended up being soaking.
