The Location is good; you are in the middle of the city. You can stroll along the river and you have many restaurants to choose from.
Difficult to reach by car, especially when you are on the other side of the railroad tracks.
Nice and accommodating staff, good location, clean rooms, and a charming atmosphere. I came here with my brother this past weekend and was very pleased with the experience - I would gladly stay here again.
Reasonable location, train station closeby, friendly. Only (very unfortunately) let down by admin errors
I'd booked a superior double room. At first I was given a (very) basic single. After visiting reception I was given what I had booked, so all was fine. Then, it was only after I had checked out and left that I realized they had charged me the full amount for the room as opposed to the deal on the online booking.
Proximity to the train station and shopping area, restaurants.
Breakfast is too expensive EUR25
The staff were very helpfull, when we had wifi problems, very much appreciated. Hotel central, easy access to metro, and trams.
- Its a place with real character, friendly staff, small but cozy rooms in an unbeatable location. - think French countryside room decorations, great for relaxed romantic weekend and city exploring - I notice a few ppl mentioned the lift/elevator. its newly renovated and working great!
breakfast wasn't included and 9 euro extra pp if u take it. It was fine - but I'd recommend just go have a croissant and coffee at one of the great nearby cafes
it should offer some ham in breakfast
Excellent location for visiting the city. Nice french atmosphere. Garage for the car.
Breakfast was not worth the money.
Little and cosy hotel in 10 minuts walk from the heart of Lion. I would definitely stayed here next time. We stayed with 3 y.o. child and completely satisfied. Hotel interior is so cute and homelike. Hotel stuff was also very freindly. Farmers' market on sundays is nearby (around the corner).
Close to the metro/tram/Perrache train station, walking distance to Place Bellecour. Clean facilities.
Single room was very small
The Breakfast room
Noise from street at night
Relatively small and family driven hotel.
A bit noisy - stayed at the first floor - could hear people in the street during the night etc.
Hotel du Simplon is a beautiful old hotel, I loved the decor in the rooms and halls, and the colourful staircases. I would highly recommend staying there.
It would have been good to have a hot breakfast, but everything else was perfect.
Friendly reception, pleasant interior and atmosphere. Tiny but comfortable room. Just good for one person or even two.
Elevator/lift did not work. Luckily I'm in good shape and did not have heavy luggage... Complicated tv system - two pilots/remote controllers. I could not set it on...
Very good location, nice hotel, nice staff. Room small but in the standards found around there.The Wi-Fi works, but was not strong in my room, and I had trouble connecting with one of the devices.
Being in Lyon once a month, I have tested almost 10 hotels around with prices ranging slight lower to twice this one. It has a major flaw, that makes it worse than its concurrents. It is it's bathroom. It is a plastic mold inserted in the room. It is very small and not much practical. I don't know if they have other rooms with bathroom, but one can find much better for the same or lower prices.
Great location! Only few blocks (less than 10 min walk) from Place Bellecour. Metro stations only one block away. Clean and cozy. Great water pressure and temperature in the shower. Wifi connection strong. Great value for the location. One block from Perrache train station.
No free continental breakfast included. No elevator (but this is typical in small European hotels)
It's very close to the center. 10-15 minutes walking distance.
It's an old hotel.
Location and staff helpfulness.
The worn feel of the interior and the cleanliness.
Elevator was not working, Terrible wi-fi connection,
The reception staff were businesslike, rather than friendly. Our room had all we needed and WiFi worked well in the room. There is a pleasant guest lounge area for use on the ground floor. Breakfast offered a good selection and the best yoghurt we had all trip.
We had become used to friendlier staff on reception during our 6 week trip, we found it all rather impersonal Lack of information about Lyon readily available, though we were given a map.
good location, very central
- room space too small - 3 floors with no lift with luggage can be painful - room not finished, under renovation
Position was great, cosy feel with homely touches.
Lift not working, hard to carry luggage to 3rd floor. Repairs being carried out on 2nd floor.
The location is very good with easy walking access to the city centre. The ambience and decor of the hotel are lovely and the beds comfortable. All this at a very reasonable price. The staff are friendly and helpful. We didn't have breakast so can't comment upon that. The parking arrangements are also very good, we could park our car safely in a private single garage (upon reservation and paying a daily fee).
Generally the area is not very noisy but the garbage was collected very early in a very noisy way on 2 consecutive mornings which disrupted our sleep.
— Location next to Lyon Perrache station — Cleanliness
— The elevator is permanently out of order so be ready to have to drag your luggage up a steep staircase — The bathroom is a kind of a plastic bathroom that would be more appropriate in an overnight train — a 'wet room' with tiny shower space with a flimsy curtain that does not even reach the floor so you end up splashing water all over the bathroom floor. — Terrible wi-fi connection which keeps breaking up every two or three minutes and then you have to enter your login and password again every time.
