I stayed here for my honeymoon, and had the perfect experience! Firstly, the location of the hotel is ideal. The staff were helpful, kind and courteous. They went above and beyond in giving me parking instructions for my car, complete with a list including address, rates and distance from the hotel. We were also given a special honeymoon surprise when we checked in! Their breakfast was perfect, especially with a special local food of the day. Highly recommend this place to stay in Lyon!!!

Hotel is fine but NOT up to 4-star standard: Room is quite clean, bed is reasonably comfortable. Welcome staff is polite and warm. It would honestly get full score if it was advertised as a 1- or 2-star hotel. However, room is extremely narrow. Sound proofing is lacking (slamming doors are the worst, loud AC). The hallways/staircases are very small. Furniture in common areas and rooms is extremely old-fashioned (eg. peeling fake leather, the worst offender being the stained carpeting in the hallways). Breakfast is not up to standard either, I'd advise to rather have it in a café (very small buffet -limited choice and no service: flies swimming in the jam; not-quite-clear water; only miniature viennoiseries; etc.) You'll be welcomed in the morning by the staff preparing the cleaning round or piling boxes in pantries, so you'll have to navigate between them and the big bags stacked in the way that take half the available space for circulating. Not too inconvenient but surprising for a 4-star hotel. I cannot comment on the price (prepaid business trip). I also haven't asked for services. Obviously, location is perfect, in the center of a beautiful and lively neighborhood; walk 10 seconds and you'll see the cathedral from afar, in all its glory. Plenty of restaurants and shops around.
