Stayed for 3 nights. Very impressed with the room. Very large room. Very pleasant staff. Breakfast was excellent. Plenty to choose from. The Hotel is situated on the quite side of the river. Walking distance to the town. The only down side was the pool was closed for maintenance. Specifically picked this Hotel for the pool. Was a let down....

I stayed here for only one night last week. I booked a twin room, expecting 2 singles beds. Instead I was allocated an enormous room with 2 queen size beds. The hotel was very clean and the staff were friendly. The breakfast was good for 17 Euro and children have free breakfast. There was a good selection of gluten free...

We're aware this hotel was recently refurbished, they have done an outstanding job! Great location for us. 12 minute walk from train station as we came via Eurostar. 5 minute walk to Les Halls Bocuse, 5 minute walk to Rhone river and 15 minute walk to city centre. Room very spacious with king size bed and clean modern bathroom with...

The service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant was very good for both breakfast and dinner. In the basement, there is a small but refreshing indoor pool. The room was a nice size, but it was oddly furnished. There wasn't a desk, but rather a small oval-shaped table. The arm chair was modern and had only had one arm. And...

It's been many years since I have stayed here and in that time, there has been a huge improvement. The staff, much friendlier than they used to be, the hotel has had an upgrade and the rooms are large, comfortable and clean. Had late drinks at the bar after a late inbound flight and were served beers and a delicious...

We loved our stay in this hotel! We booked a premium room and it was everything we wanted.....clean, modern, spacious, comfortable, great shower, robes/slippers, and a Nespresso coffee machine in our room. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and wifi were good as well.

Couldn't have asked for a better hotel. Minutes from the food market which is great for breakfast and lunch and 10 minute stroll over the river to the old town. The rooms were clean, spacious, quiet and very comfortable beds. If I was going back to Lyon I would stay here again; no questions
