Some French hotels just get the job done and don't really inspire you to spend much time in your room, but this place was lovely! Great location, affordable, and lovely interiors. We will definitely stay here again!

We stayed at the Hotel du Theatre for 3 nights during a recent trip around France and would definitely recommend this boutique hotel if you're after somewhere simple but comfortable to stay in a great location. The hotel is in an old building and is very quaint with loads of character. All that "character" means that there's no elevator or... More

Ideally located in a rather quiet but central area of Lyon this little hotel offers a very good price quality ratio. If you come by car an underground paying parking is available. It is also reachable by public transport. The old town center is a short walk away, around the corner are some of the best spots to visit and... More

I had remembered passing the cute hotel front a few years earlier so was confused that the entry was on a different side of the block. It had lost some of its appeal as we made our way up the stairs to reception. Worse was the size of our double with the wc facing the bed and the rest of... More

We had a lovely view of the theatre square from our room on the 4th floor and we were in a great location to take a walking tour of Lyon. It's also very conveniently located for shopping and restaurants. On the negative side if you have heavy suitcases there is no elevator and you must first walk up 2 flights... More

I enjoyed this hotel. A bit off putting when you first approach it as it is down a fairly minor and shabby street. You have to go up three flights to get to reception but it is worth it. I had a view overlookiing the magnificent theatre square. The room I had was large and sparsely furnished and the bed... More

The hotel has a very convenient location, walkable distance to the "Vieux Lyon", to the city shopping street (where I found iphone adaptor / charger) and a restaurants' street. We stayed in Lyon for overnight to meet friends there and went back to Paris. On my way back to Paris on TGV, I realized I forgot my new hoodie sweater... More

The hotel's good locatation is perfect to optimize your walkings. My single room was simply, but clean and spacious. The staff is very kind. Very good cost-benefit relationship. It's a very old but preserved building. There is no elevator.

This hotel is in a convenient location except I could find no bakeries nearby for my almond croissant fix every morning. If you can afford it at all, I would spring for a larger room; I could barely fit in the wc. Don't bother with the breakfast here either. If I were to stay in Lyon again I would likely... More
