Toine Families - 18/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Room was good and the staff was verry friendly but no parking space at the Hotel so you have to use a public parking 200 meters away from the Hotel, the breakfast was OK no body was cleaning the used tables so no places to sit or you would have to clean and empty the tables your self.

I'm more than satisfied, it was a very nice short stay. It's not that far from the city centre, especially for those who like to have a walk.

Not very good stay

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Arroub Business - 25/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Cleaning issue (bin full in the bathroom when we arrived, no cleaning in between days) Air conditioning was no working properly so the room was too hot.

Dear Arroub, Thank you for your feedback. We are deeply sorry that our room experience wasn’t up to your expectations and the Mercure hotels standards. The Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette is committed day in and day out to offer a peaceful and relaxing stay to our customers. It obviously includes a clean and well-maintained room and we apologize that it was not the case during your visit. However, the cleaning service during your stay is not automatic since the implementation of sanitary protocols by Accor at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. It should be offered as an option by the front desk team upon arrival. We will obviously share your remarks with the affected service(s) to enhance the guest experience. Looking forward to welcome you again for a better stay with us, The Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette Team.

Only partially Adapted room

Simon Couples - 10/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I asked for an adapted room, however the bathroom was only partially adapted which made its use both difficult and dangerous (room 511 of Hôtel Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette )

Dear Simon, First of all, we thank you for your feedback regarding your recent experience at the Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette. We are deeply sorry that our room adapted for person with reduced mobility wasn’t up to your expectations. However, these were recently built following the French requirements for adapted rooms, especially for the bathroom area. We would be glad to hear from you about the improvements you think is needed to accommodate persons with reduced mobility in order to improve the experience for everyone. Obviously, your remark will be shared with the affected service(s). Thank you for your understanding, The Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette Team.

Very good stay

CULTURA2019 Business - 20/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

Pleasant stay at this hotel. The room was very comfortable and spacious and quiet (overlooking a small street behind the hotel. Although the bathroom was small, the shower was excellent. It was a pity the restaurant was closed but the bar was pleasant and relaxing. The location of the hotel was exactly what I required. I recommend this hotel

Great hotel in good location, but lousy restaurant for dinner

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

karstenlinde Family - 29/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

We stayed in this hotel twice this summer as a stopover. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms nice, and you can easily get around town on foot while the car is parked safely in the hotel garage. While the breakfast is very good, definetely stay away from the restaurant for dinner! The Ceasars Salad had nothing to do with a Ceasars Salad, except maybe the price, and was simply not edible. The childrens menu was a piece of dry minced meat with a very small serving of fries, with a quality that McDonalds would have been ashamed of, and this with a price of 15 (!) Euro for a childrens menu. Instead, follow one of the restaurant recommendations of the front office staff.

Good value for $

smanolov Couples - 16/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

Hotel is located in a business district. No much to do in the area but it is 15 min walk to the center and even closer to the railway station. There is also a Metro station two blocks away. There is a convenience store next door. Room is spacious and clean. Personnel was very nice and helpful. Once i needed a bottle opener and the guys in the bar were very kind and helped me. Hotel is good value for money. Will return again.
