Quiet stay, convenient location
Our stay was very good, the room was comfortable and location close to the metro. Not many restaurants around but close to groceries, bakery and the an on site restaurant. Breakfast was great, one of the few locations where I was able to find soy milk and gluten free items.

Laidback in Lyon
Room was comfortably large and fresh with king size bed. Staff very helpful and friendly. Location is a little out of central area but that is accessible in 1 or 2 stops using close by metro. Street parking is payable Monday to Saturday, hotel can provide undercover parking for 12 euro/day.
Melville, ie3 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Well maintained hotel in a relatively central area of Lyon. The room was comfortable and well equipped. Service was friendly but check in took a little while as there were 2 or 3 other customers who had problems with their keys not working. If you arrive late, there aren't too many options to find a late dinner and the restaurant has a rather limited late-night menu.
Ravi, us1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Surprisingly good.
Staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Breakfast was good. First impressions weren’t great as surrounding area doesn’t look great but once parked up in the garage me and my 7nyear old son walked 500m to a bar/restaurant the hotel recommended were again everyone was friendly and the food was great. Very pleasant stop off on our way to the south.
