Just stayed here for 1 night while being on business trip in the area. Ok hotel for this but not more. Room is decent size but a little bit aged. Cleanliness is average at max. But again for 1 night it's ok especially considering the price our company gets.

Ok for 1 night, late check-in from Lyon Airport, quick sleep, decent wifi, good shower, and an adequate breakfast... nothing great, but nothing to complain either... wasn't surprised that there were many people at the bar in the night, since there is nothing much around here at all.

Ambassadeur hotel is what I would call a standard business hotel - everything was quite ok, no disappointments but no highlights either. Very quick and convenient check-in and check-out, room quality was along expectations for the hotel with 4 stars and overall service was friendly. On the plus side, location is convenient if you are for example renting a car... More

Good shower but the toilet's flush is very loud. There is a flat screen tv but no English channels, OK it is in France but... More

Taxis would not transfer us from the airport and there was no shuttle bus for the weekend. The hotel restaurant and bar were closed. Corridors were unlit. The cleaner was still in the room when we arrived. The hotel is next to land full of rubble.

The hotel is quite close to the airport with a free shuttle service. The restaurant is quite a quality one with the maitre (female) quite professional and gentle. No WIFI in the rooms, only cable connection...in 2015 is quite unuseful. The first suite (406) I was assigned to was clearlely stinking, I asked for a room change and the second... More

Negatives: the rate of the room was not one quoted at the back of the door to the room, pillows too soft,... More

This is obviously not a city hotel, as it is located in a suburban area on the outskirts of Lyon. The hotel is modern, offers all required amenities including free parking, and has an excellent restaurant. Moreover, it is not really isolated, as one can walk to the nearby town center of Genas with its shops and restaurants.
