      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Residence Lyon

      Lifesaver!

      from

      This hotel rescued, what could have been an UGLY trip, and an UGLY family squabble! Last spring I went to Lyon for 10 days for my sister's wedding. I had booked another hotel ( name escapes me, must have blocked it out) based on internet pictures, price etc. ( I was on a budget). I was meeting a friend in France and we requested a double room.

      Well the first hotel was a total disaster, dirty noisy room with only one broken bed. My unhappiness with the hotel lead to a lot arguing between my sister and I , and finally a major intervention by Hotel La residence where other's in the wedding party where staying. The hotel concierge at La residence was able to check me in at a very late hour, with zero fuss. He was friendly and very understanding, and even gave my friends and I a beautiful 3 person room on the square for the price of a 2 person room. When i tearfully thanked him for his help, he even told me not to worry, and he was happy to help with the wedding prep. The hotel was beautifully decorated with a HUGE sunken marble tub, perfect location,and the staff was more than friendly.

      In the end we all had a fabulous time, the wedding was beautiful, and Lyon became one of my favorite European destinations. I can't help but think if the hotel hadn't helped me out, I would have had a much different experience. For future trips I will always stay at La Residence.

      A real find!

      from

      Some French hotels we've stayed in have left a lot to be desired, but La Residence hits all the right buttons. It is a modest hotel and the price reflects this, but it has real quality. Our room was very large, quiet and spotless, the bathroom has just been renovated and the breakfast provided much more than you often get in a three star hotel in France. Added to this were friendly, efficent staff and a marvellous location and you have an ideal base for exploring a city, which surprised us in how lovely it was. The Old Town was very interesting and do try and catch up with the lovely murals on many buildings, including those in the 'museum' devoted to Tony Garnier, Lyon's famous architect. The great new cycle hire scheme is to be admired - lots of lovely bikes on every street corner for residents and tourists to use ( providing you register)

      Fantastic value

      from

      We rented a house in provence for 3 weeks and took time out to spend two nights in Lyon as the Hotel La Residence. At 70 euros/night it was an amazing bargain. Totally comfortable king size bed (great matress) and newly renovated bathroom with a deep tub. Unlike the more upscale hotels, they provided only shampoo and soap but no big deal - the towels were fluffy and nice. Breakfast was also very good and fun to eat in the large breakfast room. Excellent location. We walked everywhere and good stores all around. Friendly staff, free internet use... I highly recommend.

      Excellent value

      from

      Small, clean, friendly and exceptionally convenient hotel in a pedestrian street with many affordable shops, and good restaurants within half a mile or so. Nearby cafes less exciting but super shopping in the next street. Minutes from either of two metro stops and within an easy walk of many interesting sites and of the Old Town. If you want more luxury go for the Globe et Cecil at twice the price, but at 70 euros a night for a double room this hotel was an excellent, if unexciting, choice. If on a budget or wanting an inexpensive break you couldn't do better! Have breakfast out although it was only 6.5 euros at the hotel.

      Fantastic Location, Great Value

      from

      Three things that set Hotel Residence apart are the location, service and value. Location: on the Presqu'Ile of Lyon, very close to the Place Bellecour and within reasonable walking distance of virtually everything of interest in Lyon. Service: the staff was friendly and service-oriented. Value: we paid 70 euro per night for a double, which is an amazing value considering location and the rooms. The rooms were nice, clean and large by European standards, but nothing fancy. This is by far the best value I have ever seen in a French hotel.

      Great Hotel

      from

      We (party of 3) stayed at Hotel la Residence on our first night in Europe. This was the best hotel of the trip. The front desk staff during the day spoke great English and was very nice and helpful. The hotel is in a great location and you can walk from the hotel to anywhere you want to go in the town. The rooms were large and very clean, bathroom was very nice, and the hotel was extremely quiet at night and we had a room that overlooked the road. This hotel is a great deal for what you get. I would definitely stay here again.

      Great value

      from

      This is a no frills hotel, that is clean and safe. Great location and friendly staff. You use an old metal key that you keep at the front desk when you are not in the room. Excellent for budget travellers!

      Amazing location

      from

      We were so surprised by this hotel, the location is perfect, the rooms immaculate and a great price! The staff was friendly and spoke perfect english. It was also very easy to find.

      Great Find!!

      from

      We went to Lyon a few weeks ago and booked the Hotel La Residence as we were told by a friend to stay near Place Bellacour - what a great hotel!

      It is located right in the middle of the pedestrianised street, 5 mins walk away from the metro, 5 min walk to the old town and a 5 min walk to the restaurants in the new town. A brilliant location for anyone wanting to explore the best Lyon has to offer.

      The rooms were lovely and quite spacious, especially when compared to some French hotel rooms, the staff were lovely - breakfast, well we didn't eat in the hotel, with so many lovely restaurants nearby - why would you want to?

      We are going back to Lyon for a 1 night stopover before hitting the Alpes in Feb - we will definately be staying here again.

      Good

      from

      I just came back from Lyon (Spring 04) and would recommend this hotel - it is on rue Victor Hugo, the main shopping street, in the center of town. The room is standard, but the staff is very friendly and polite and helpful. It is also not far from Gare Lyon Perrache - an easy 5 min walk from the Hotel.

      actually flavoured with real mint leaves and it was so awesome!

      We checked out a couple of cute little stores we saw and once

      just not doable.

      ... Saturday 27th We are all looked forward to a quieter day today with a walking tour of Vienne in the morning & then travelling to Tournon mid afternoon, although the quiet time was broken up with an information session in the afternoon about the activities in the coming week. We visited the Roman ruins & walked on a Roman Road that is 2,000 years old, had a look at Saint Maurice's Cathedral & a stroll through the local Saturday market, what a sight!!! As I was ...

      ... ran out, took a couple of pictures, back on the metro, and got back to the hostel and only missed 10 minutes of the second half. I was pretty impressed, and the picture game continues!!

      I am going to bed a bit earlier tonight because I have a 5:30am wake up call. I have a bus to Marseille in the morning, and I want to get some rest. Hopefully Marseille is nice down on the water. I haven’t been on a coast in a ...

      Salut mes chatons,

      This weekend was crazy fun and exciting! Laura and I went to Lyon for La Fête des Lumières (The Festival of Lights). I first heard about it when I couchsurfed in Lyon two years ago. Unfortunately I was unable to go back then but jumped at the opportunity to go this time. The basic story of the festival is:
