This must have been amazing in the 1980s. Unfortunately, not much has changed since then. The facilities are very old and not well-maintained. Even the TV system is outdated, has a coupe of channels and does not allow to connect to Netflix or Amazon.

Front desk staff was super. House keeping lax. First room with broken AC. The upgrade room was tired, need update. It's a 4 or 3.5 star hotel. Definitely not 5 star!!

The best location to stay in Lyon. Walking distance to everything. The best service by all staff. The room deco is outdated yes, but very clean. The bed is extremely comfortable. After a few hours you forget about it. He staff will bend over backwards to make your stay a classy stay.

This hotel was excellent and had an amazing breakfast. The beds were so comfy as were the sheets. The shower was great. The staff was really friendly. There was a breathtaking view of Lyon on the top floor restaurant. We would totally go back.
