If you are looking to book a central Lyon hotel in the La Presqu'ile area, Hotelo could be the right choice for you! This Lyon hotel offers free Wi-Fi and an area shuttle. The lobby area has a TV so you can keep up-to-date on all the news.
Price and location are great. Staff was very friendly. Nice, modern decor. Breakfast is inexpensive (but we didn't eat it, so can't comment on the meal itself).
Room was very small for the price. The design of the bathroom is horrible. Showers need to have shelves for soap, shampoo, etc. Also, no barrier between the shower and the rest of the bathroom means that everything gets soaking wet. Mirror is way too far away from the sink, so doing makeup is difficult. Mattress seemed old and in need of replacing.
The hotel was excellent but for the fact that there was no room reserved in my name when I arrived at the hotel. The hotel had no knowledge of any reservation being made despite me having a booking confirmation with me - clearly a breakdown of communication had occured between Booking.com and the Hotelo hotel. I hope this has now been rectified - it is not a pleasant experience when you arrive in a foreign city after a long journey.
Attractive and stylish hotel. Very nice updated and modern yet with an old world charm. Staff was kind and helpful
The breakfast was a bit sparse. Though the coffe was excellent! Coming from Beaune and Dijon, the location is far from the station.
1) Hotelkeeper was outstanding, consistently helpful and very knowledgeable about tourist activities, 2) location was excellent for city sightseeing, 3) our room and bathroom were exceptionally clean, 4) plumbing reliability was the best during our thirty day stay in Europe (far better than the three and four star hotels where we'd stayed in Tuscany, 5) free, unlimited Wi-Fi in room had strong and steady connectivity and 6) the independent room temperature controls really worked. All in all, the services and facilities were superb, and well beyond what one expects from a quite modest hotel.
Lighting in room was ultramodern but somewhat inadequate for reading. Double bed felt small because we're used to a king-size bed. The breakfast was lovely and inexpensive but was too 'white' for us, as is the case for the breads in all the places we stayed on this trip.
