In this hotel we had a good welcome, the bedrooms are confortable nevertheless the furniture is very old fashion. We did not like the breakfeast , no service , the bread was bad quality very hard, there is no service. Our advise avoid to have the breakfeast it is too expensive for a very poor service.

Dear Nathalie, First of all, thanks you for having taken the time to leave a review after your stay in our two stars establishment. Indeed, Hotel du Helder offers you a good location in the city center, with an easy access to the main historic neighborhoods of Lyon and public transport stops (subway, bus and tramway). We're pleased to know... More

All in all a very nice hotel with friendly and english speaking staff! Loved the cozy and comfy old-school feeling of the reception and the room itself. Definitely worth your money when you're looking for an affordable hotel right next to the centrum of Lyon!

Cheap enough, but a rubbish area where the hotel is located. Room was ok (nothing like the pictures). Just a bath with a shower attachment. Nothing to hold the shower head up, and no shower curtain.... Also the cleaner just walked in on me at about 8am!!!! After a night on the drink and hoping for a lay in, I... More

Hotel has WiFi but your guaranteed it wont work or they will tell you its been repaired. No air con in rooms making it unbearable. Rooms are basic and tiny and if you just want somewhere to put your luggage and lay down it does the job. Location is good but everything else is awful. Managed to get €90 off... More

I really cannot understand why the drab horrible corridors cannot be revamped, it is such a depressing walk to the bedrooms. We stayed for one night as it was the only hotel we could find after attending football stadium. After reading reviews, I was not looking forward to staying here. The beds were clean and reasonably comfortable for one night.... More

We stayed here two nights during the Euro Football Championships. We regretted walking from Gare Part Dieu - it took us half an hour though some heavily populated streets. Much easier and quicker to get a taxi. The hotel itself has a decent sized foyer and we found reception quite friendly and efficient. The rooms were a decent size with... More

This hotel is within walking distance of the main train station from the airport. We paid 25 euro in taxi but spent most of the time sitting in traffic, would recommend you walk.

Check the pics I posted. Hair on the beds, dead bugs, no pillow case, just a sheet wrapped over the bed roll. A layer of grime on everything and a carpet that hasn't been cleaned since the 70's. No no no. Booked for 2 days, lost the money on the cancelation. There was a condom wrapper under the bed.
