I enjoyed my week long stay at this hotel. The hotel is a little older, but I appreciated the vintage charm. There was a beautiful stained glass window in the bathroom. Two large windows let in plenty of sunlight. My room was clean, comfortable bed and a great price per night. The front desk girl was wonderful and my luggage was stored for free. She also upgraded my reservation to a very nice room immediately upon checking in. There are two small grocery stores less than 1 block away. The tram stop and public bike rental are also very close. It was convenient for getting around. The hotel is also just a short walk to the beautiful riverfront. Don’t miss the weekly market there. The front desk workers speak English if needed. They were always happy to speak in either language. If the hotel is full it maybe a little noisy since the walls are thinner.

You get what you pay for!
Stopped off for one night in Lyon. We often choose B&B hotels as they are cheap and clean for a one-night stopover, but if possible will always try and find an independent hotel. This hotel has the air of faded grandeur, from the foyer and bar (with an incongruous 'black boy' statue standing behind the bar - very colonial!) it seems to have been quite an upmarket hotel once upon a time, but as we made our way up to the room, it gets shabbier. The 3 bed room was clean with a tiny but adequate shower room. Our room had a small balcony overlooking an interior courtyard, which at least meant we had no noise from the road. However once we went to bed we realised how poor the soundproofing was as we could hear a couple in the building next door talking throughout the night! The wifi worked but was slow. Seeing other reviews I'm glad we skipped breakfast at and astounding €9.50! If you do want breakfast I can recommend The Kitchen Café about a block away where they do excellent coffee and make the most fantastic cakes and brioche.

This is a good budget hotel
I spent almost a week at this hotel. I was on a business trip in Lyon. So, the hotel was chosen as the closest to the place of work. And I do not regret about my choice. The price policy of the hotel is more than reasonable. I was very surprised that in the 2-star hotels the room was cleaned and towels changed every day. There was a good Wi-Fi in the room. The hotel has an interesting location. On the good side, it located near the train station and public transport stop. Within walking distance can be found many tourist attractions and two big grocery stores. From the bad side, the area is a bit noisy and there are only cafes with oriental cuisine around the hotel. I can’t say anything about the restaurant in the hotel. There was a cafe with delicious food right in front of the hotel. But the Vietnamese mistress of this cafe did not speak English. It seems to me that she did not even know French. The hotel elevator has several doors. It's worth seeing. As extra information, I can say that it takes less than hour walk from the hotel to the train station. In this case, you have to bypass the station, because the doors are closed at night.

Fine for the price
Old hotel, small rooms but clean and everything worked.
Very good location, so for a hotel right downtown which is what I needed I felt I got what I paid for and was satisfied.
The negative points were that the Wifi was no good for anything but emails and the breakfast coffee was absolutely terrible, otherwise no complaints.

GOOD SITUATION TO VISIT LYON.
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.
