8/10 Very Good

Very good location, 20 minutes to old lyon by feet. Furniture is a bit outdated but still a good choice for the price and location! Even parking in an garage available if you reserve it beforehand for 8 Euros, was the cheapest I found in the city. My Volvo V60 fit, SUVs should too.

The wifi is up and down from my room.The parfume or room refreshers in the hotel was not my taste. The location is between train station and city centre. Cheapest private room i found in the downtown.

2/10 Poor

No star hotel
Don’t stay there. Was scared there. Antiquated, other rooms had milk and cheese and butter on windows.

4/10 Fair

My stay: 12th - 15th March 2020
The hotel itself was clean and tidy, the staff were professional and the room was comfortable but the bed mattress was very compressing and hurt my back really badly. The blue neon lit sign: HOTEL was right outside my window and kept me awake at night even with the curtains closed. Also, the lift malfunctioned quite often and wouldn’t stop at my floor when I called it and sometimes the doors would not open when it reached the ground floor or my floor (2nd floor).

Comfortable, retro hotel
It's a comfortable hotel. I only spent couple of days there and it was clean with a good internet, but also very retro furnitures. A bit like time travelling to the '70s

6/10 Good

This hotel is old and dated. Amenities were SEVERELY lacking and room heaters did not work. No one answered the phone at the front desk when we tried to call down multiple times. Staff left sheets/towels/etc on floors outside rooms when going for lunch breaks which did not look good at all. Overall, this hotel is a poor choice and I would not stay here again.
