Great neighbourhood !

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Leanne Couples - 21/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

As usual, no big surprises with the Ibis chain, very quiet room, very very comfortable bed. A bit smaller than most rooms I've previously stayed in. Smaller shower as well. But this is a central location in a big city, so understandable for the price. Good location in Lyon for food and coffee lovers. Easy to find with space to drop your luggage before parking if needed. There is "free street" parking within a 10 minute walk. I REALLY wish Ibis would add a kettle to their rooms. Pretty please ?

Very comfortable beds

Not the easiest hotel to find and the lack of car parking in such a busy area of Lyon is an issue. The hotel is okay albeit pricey for the standard. Room was adequate but no more. Staff very helpful and breakfast good. The hotel is well situated for the fabulous sights along the river.

everything I expected

Duncan Families - 23/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was small but clean and tidy. The location was good. We were using is just for a place to sleep and not to spend time at the hotel so it was perfect. The staff were friendly and despite being on a busy street the room was quiet. The air conditioning worked well too which makes a difference.

Functional & location

Leandro Business - 18/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

I expected more from this hotel. Maybe because it was part of the Accor membership program.

Basic but refurbished Ibis, fairly good location

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

apbj Family - 29/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

This is a smaller Ibis than the nearby Ibis Les Halles but my room was much bigger and had been refurbished. This may account for the significantly higher rate. The wifi was a bit troublesome at first but fine after that. A good value option and very close to tram and metro connections. Didn't get the usual Ibis Business/Gold Accor welcome drink but wasn't particularly concerned. Tiny single-person elevator, like being inside a dumb waiter!

Risky underground parking!

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Camper300785 Friends getaway - 18/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

Reception was warm & friendly, despite the fact that neither my online booking nor check-in had been relayed from central office (I had booked online on accorhotels.com). The desk clerk booked me manually, and all was well. About the very expensive underground parking lot... Just (gently) opening my car booth damaged the paint - the support beams in the ceiling are just too low! Moreover, I was unable to fit my Opel Astra (not the longest car on earth...) into the parking space. Do not book at the hotel, use the accor site, it can save you a lot of money! Breakfast was - erm - adequate. NOT, by a long shot!, what an Ibis breakfast used to be. Ah, où sont les neiges d'antan...

Good hotel with a bit different Ibis design

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Jure P Couples - 07/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

Different room design as I was used in other Inis hotels. More space in the room (at least ours -No. 61), nice separate bathroom and WC. Small private garage (usefull as neighbourhood is a bit "noisy" at weekends). Around 300m walk to public transport (tram or metro),and then you are in the heart of Lyon. Nice staff.
