Quiet, convenient, hospitable stay
I wished I could have stayed longer. A lovely, clean bed and room; warm, welcome staff; quiet neighborhood but still convenient to everything, including Gare de Perrache

A small, but comfortable single-bed room. The shower and toilet cubicle was a liitle sub-standard.

Lovely place
Lovely place, old fashioned, and with pleasant staff. Room a little small but we expected that, and we could have paid for a bigger one, but with only two nights it was fine. Very close to transport and very convenient location.

Reasonably priced hotel
I booked this for my daughter, a student, who had to go to Lyon for a meeting. This is what she says. - Room reasonably comfortable and pleasant. - Bathroom very basic and toilet didn't look stable, flush button broke the second I touched it - No toiletries apart from soap/body wash stuff that smelt horrible and made my hands red and sore - Breakfast nice - limited choice, but fine for one morning - Heard loud conversation that might have been argument between what seemed to be two staff members or manager and staff member while I was eating breakfast. Made me feel uncomfortable, couldn't not hear it but didn't feel like my business. - When I went to reception desk to buy toothbrush/toiletries the guy there was really nice, but I suppose I shouldn't have had to go there. A pack with toothbrush, toothpaste and shower gel cost 5e. - Location good and central, but lots of noise outside window at night. - Got on Wifi but couldn't get Internet.
