Our hotel is conveniently located a stones-throw from the train station, Gare de la Part Dieu in Lyon, where we will depart from tomorrow as we embark on our return journey home.
The hotel, part of the Accor group, is brand-new having been recently opened just a few months ago. The staff are friendly & helpful and speak excellent English.
Our room is clean and decked out in relatively hip and funky wallpaper and curtains. However, the room facilities are minimalist with only a TV provided. No room safe or minibar fridge and the space is fairly small compared to others we have experienced. Still, it does the job of ensuring a good night’s sleep with double windows blocking out any noise and the double sofa-bed permits four to sleep in the one room.
The now mandatory free Wi-Fi doesn’t function inside our rooms but works fine downstairs in the lobby and restaurant area.
A more than adequate petit dejeuner is also complementary including toast & pastries, meats & cheeses, cereals & freshly-squeezed orange juice, fruit & fruit salad, and the must-have morning coffee!
All-round a good hotel though not as fun as others we have enjoyed yet ironically more expensive, probably because it’s in a large city.
