4/10 Fair

Not great at all
This is not a 4 star hotel whatsoever, it's a hotel purely targeted towards conferences. We were shooed away from the coffee bar area when ordering a coffee so that the conference group could use the space. Really dirty, worn, tired hotel. Area not great, near a business centre but that's it. We had a few unfortunate incidents and when I raised them with manager Anita, she dismissed me. Her arrogance and lack of customer service was appalling. There are much areas and hotels to stay at in Lyon. This hotel is incredibly overpriced for what you get

6/10 Good

The hotel rooms are quite basic for a 4 star hotel. Air conditioning not working properly. The staff were very attentive & dealt with any problems quickly. The night desk manager in particular was very helpful & did it with a smile. A good location for transport & only 25 mins walk from the main squares.
