Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

If you're going to the old town, parking's a nightmare! Do yourself a favour, either walk, cab or metro, or combine.

Just Average

If it weren't for its location, I wouldn't choose this hotel again. It is mostly for business travellers, just few minutes from a metro station, one stop from Vieux Lyon. Cleanliness is superficial.

Very friendly and helpful staff

The hotel was nice, huge LCD TV (nice to watch the closing ceremony of the olympics...). It was close to the metro with one stop to the old city centre. Good breakfast. Good parking place.
