Liked the concept of quirky hotel but probably serves me right for not staying in a chain hotel with basic necessities like a manager who acknowledges and supports guests when they have been robbed and gives information about a so called safe behind reception ? Like others before me I stayed in this hotel in the summer and had hundreds...

Interesting place with themed school things. Big hooks, lockers, desks all from school buildings. Clean and with air conditioningoning. A bit quirky. Book your carpark space in advance €18 a night. Nice place next door for breakfast. On the doorstep of the old town. Fooderies everywhere!

Very well located hotel, just a few minutes away from City hall. I loved the terrace, the beautifully decorated dining room and the very cosy and comfy lounge. Bedrooms are ok, nothing fancy, don't expect anything special, just a place to sleep. It is a very clean and quiet hotel that serves very good breakfast. Good value for money.

Very nice and clean. Good design sense. Very convenient. The staff are friendly and we're helpful to give us the power adapter for our iPhone and laptop. The complimentary water and drinks are greatly appreciated. It would be better if there are diet cokes or coke zeros in addition to coke.

It was like staying in a hospital bed or maybe a mental hospital in term of a atmospher. All white and totally bare boned. I can't wait to check out. The area is great. But I could never recommend this hotel. I booked it on Hotwire and was mislead by the 90 percent approval rating. Very fishy.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the College Hotel. The location, in the Vieux Lyon quarter, was good, with lots of choices of small restaurants, cafes and shops, and street life. It was easy to walk across the Saone to the other sections of the city. The room was basic but comfortable and the staff friendly. There are some...

Our group stayed in College Hotel for our week visit to Lyon. To our delight, we discovered it was right on the edge of Vieux Lyon which enabled us to walk there for dinner or just visit. Our first impression was that the hotel was a bit odd, with its theme of an older generation elementary school. However, the rooms...
