- there is a supermarket in the proximity of the hotel - the hotel is close to the train station - old city center is 20-25 minutes away by foot

January 2017

The friendliness of people, the global place, the quietness.

The size of the room (a little bit too little for a 4-star hotel), the error when billing (breakfast was enclosed in the booking price and I had the bad surprise to find it on the bill, but I was refunded consequently)

However I had a confirmed booking, the hotel was fully booked and provided an alternative only after long discussions. The failure was either not to be identified or not clearly communicated.

Short distance to the city centre. Easy access to all kinds of public transport. Simple but clean room.

Bit noisy due to busy road in front of the hotel.

For 80 € breakfast included I think that this was an excellent price/performance ratio, + the hotel is really well located with easy access to trains, tramways, and the lovely ´´Velov´´ (Lyon bikes to rent and drop where you want).

Do not expect a flat, rooms are not so spacious but that's largely enough !
