This hotel is nicely located, i.e. a short distance from the railway station (which is easily accessed from the airport) and also within a walkable (15 minutes) distance from the main city square (Place Bellecour). It is comfortable, clean and well maintained. Didn't have any meals, so cannot comment re. this aspect. The staff were helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. There may welI be accommodation which is closer to the city centre, but this is close enough to be convenient and I couldn't fault this hotel in any way.
"Great value, amenities & short walk to old Lyon."
The Citadines is spacious by comparison to most hotels rooms we stayed in during our 3 week in France and for the cost is probably the best deal we encountered. From the cleanliness, comfortable bed and convenient kitchenette we would definitely stay here again. Old Lyon is only a short 20 minute walk from the hotel which offers underground parking although for an extra 15 euro per night still making it affordable. The only drawback was that upon our arrival, in order to drive up to the front entrance of the hotel you have to ignore a do not enter sign on the short access street. The front desk staff confirmed that this was not a problem. Would definitely stay here agian.
Park & Suites is very centrally located in Lyon and an easy walk from Gare de Part-Dieu. The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful and had a good knowledge of the area.
Upon arrival we noticed that our room was very hot with only an internal window facing over the hotel restaurant. After spending some time in the room we felt that it was uncomfortably hot and no fan was available. As soon as we discussed this issue with the staff they were happy to move us to a different room with an external window which made all the difference.
Having use of a kitchenette was handy for the stay but food in Lyon is so good that you won't want to stay in your room for food!
The hotel is slightly more focused at a Business customer, however it worked well for our 4 day visit to the City.

Located a few minutes walk from Part-Dieu Station, with excellent access to Presque Ile & Vieux Lyon using either the METRO (Place Brotteaux) or Tram T1 (Gare Part-Dieu). Our double room was fine - no complaints! Don't bother with the hotel breakfast, you'll get better value at one of cafes near the station or pop into the city centre.

The reception had no record of our booking although we'd phoned the day before, and they were fully booked. Fortunately, they had a spare for such eventualities so we faired better than the couple who arrived after us, also with a booking, who were turned away.
It was adequate for a stop-over on a rail tour, but I wouldn't want to stay there longer.
Part Dieu Station serves as Lyon's main station, providing guests access to Lyon's business district in the 3rd arrondissement, Saint-Exupery Airport, and high speed trains to Paris. Many companies have offices in the Part Dieu neighborhood. One of Europe's largest malls can also be found nearby. The Orchestre National de Lyon performs in l'Auditorium de Lyon just north of the station.
