It's a 10-minute taxi ride to Croix-Rousse, the hilly Silk Quarter, where you can wander atmospheric old passageways used by artisans for centuries. To shop for produce visit Halles de Lyon, a few blocks away in Part-Dieu, or explore the ruins of the Roman theater at sunset.

Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette, Lyon
Very Good8.0
Great location, great breakfast, superb service
The hotel is well located for business and pleasure alike. Rooms are comfortable and design is simple. Amenities are more 3 star (coffee, bathroom extras). Breakfast was superb and so was the service. Bathroom tub leaked and staff ignored the problem.

Very Good8.0
A very nice hotel and staff. Only issue I had was booked a king size bed and was given a room with 2 queen beds. Didn't quibble with room because I didn't have the reservation handy and it was a later check in and I was exhausted. It was supposed to be king size bed but was told by a later hotel that sizes are different in France than US. Not sure if this is a hotel problem or an issue with how the booking site lists the room. So beware if this is important to you.

The hotel was located 10 minutes walk from the city center. The rooms are spacious. Breakfast was very nice. There was a valet parking that costs 24 eur/day. Lyon was amazing!

Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette, Lyon
The hotel was a disappointment. The area that it was located in was not special. The hotel staff and housekeeping were poor. Based upon these problems, the hotel is not worth the prices that they charge.
