Hotel is well located in Lyon City center, near place Bellecour. CLose to the lively shopping area and restaurant/bar scene. Price is very reasonable. Which surely explaines why when it comes to "5 stars hotel", we are very far from it... 1/ Rooms are very aging. Pictures only show the renovated bedhead with nice wallpaper, but do not get fooled the rest (furnitures & bathrooms) have not been upgraded. Welcome back to the 90's ! 2/ Service is disorganized and unpleasant. Called for a early checkin, was told I will be contacted back in 10 minutes, but no one called back, and obviously the next day upon check-in at 14h45 our room was not ready... Minibar was not replenished, and we had to ask for it. The welcome for Platimum members is barely personalized nor acknoewledge (just got a drink voucher without much info on their bar...).

Dear Maéva.J, We thank you for your feedback on our house in Lyon. We apologize for the inconvenience caused. Concerning the architecture and the decoration of our rooms we wanted to play the card of a traditional hotel, however all our furniture are functional and our maintenance teams are ready to intervene at any time if a problem would occur. Your feedback allows us to improve our services, this one has been passed on to our head of reception so that he can re-sensitize his team. We hope that this experience will not affect your loyalty to our hotel and we would like to see you again very soon. Sincerely, Louise Guest Relation

We have stayed here several times & this was the 5th that was as good as all the previous ones. We were lucky to get a table at the Institute Restaurant that made our visit event more pleasant. Director Jean Christophe was very talented & knowledgable in explaining the food & the sites of Lyon. Located most ideally in Lyon at Bellcour. Surrounded by beautiful shops , museums nearby and almost everywhere walkable. The staff is very helpful with directions & recommending good typical Lyonaise rests. The BF is sumptuous worth it. There is one thing that the management needs to look into is to hand hold the students that are virtually managing the place. More senior managers at hand will make services even more professional. The room should have been checked for broken mirrors in the Bath for example.. This is not a critic of the students - far from it - but a Hotel needs senior managers at hand in more numbers. Excellent place to be. VP

Let me say that I agree with other reviewers that this is extremely well located hotel in the heart of Vieux Lyon. But there are a few very misleading things. There's a culinary institute school next to the hotel, but there's very little in the way that the hotel has any relationship with the institute. There's 14 pages dedicated to it on the website, but we couldn't make a reservation through the hotel? One of the rooms also had a cooling problem, which was not good. The bathrooms are also weird. I've never had to step up to a shower. But that's a real risk of a fall, especially for more elderly people, like my 80 year-old mother-in-law. Then, the concierge made a reservation for dinner, but someone the people who took over from him, had no clue that he made a reservation. They sent us to probably the worst dinner I've ever had in my life. (More on that later). Rubber escargot, and overcooked dry lamb. Ugh. The breakfast delivered to the room was unpalatable. I mean we touched none of the breakfast at 27 Euro per person x 4. Dead fruit, dry pastry, cold coffee and cappuccino, sour juice, dry chacuterie, runny eggs. If they were trying to perfect how not to make breakfast .... they did a great job. 2 other things: 1) When we asked for some extra towels after hours, we got a, "I'm the only person in the hotel, and we can't do it. Not expected for a 5 star hotel". 2) When we're checking out, the poor small little concierge helper told us, there was only 1 trolly to bring multiple baggages out, and so you could only take out 2 bags at a time. We didn't stay too long -- we got out as fast as we could, but for a 5 star hotel, I would expect far more.
