Lyon, the capital city in France’s Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, sits at the junction of the Rhône and Saône rivers. Its center reflects 2,000 years of history from the Roman Amphithéâtre des Trois Gaules, medieval and Renaissance architecture in Vieux (Old) Lyon, to the modern Confluence district on Presqu’île peninsula. Traboules, covered passageways between buildings, connect Vieux Lyon and La Croix-Rousse hill.

You will appreciate our hotel’s privileged location on Lyon Presqu’île in the 2nd arrondissement, a short walk from Place Bellecour, during a romantic getaway, a business trip or a family holiday.

We stayed here when visiting Lyon for the Light Festival & Christmas Market.
The hotel is ideally situated for exploring the city on foot.
We had a room at the rear of the building on the 3rd floor above the terrace which was clean, comfortable and quiet given the central location of this vibrant city.

The hotel is situated on a “pedestrian street” but you can access the hotel by car to allow for dropping off and if you book there is a carpark on the ground floor that will take a few medium sized cars.

This lovely little hotel is in a great location – in the midst of a pedestrian street full of cafes and boutiques, not far from Place Bellecour.

Very comfortable, and the room opens out onto a nice patio area for spring/ summer stays. Wonderful buffet breakfast in the cosy dining room available. Friendly, helpful staff.

Only complaint was that there isn’t much space around the bed – entering the room, the bed is right there and I struggled to even step into the room with my luggage.

But everything you could need IS in that room so… Perhaps less space was needed for the bathroom vanity area…?

But I understand the hotel has been renovated and is a lovely old building.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel La Residence for the fete des Lumieres this past December. It was a great experience.

The location could not be better, right by the Place Carnot where there was the Christmas Market, and within walking distance to almost all of the light shows in Lyon.

The Rue Victor Hugo is a pedestrian street, which is even cuter.

The hotel is nice, the rooms are a little dated, but for the budget we had we could not have asked for better. Would come back!

oth the bedroom and bathroom were much bigger than you would expect for a medium priced hotel. Both were in perfect condition, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The decor was fashionable and very light and cheery.

The breakfast was very generous although the croissants had run out and were not replaced until we had filled up on other things, which was a bit annoying.

The hotel isn’t fancy but it is clean, located just a block off of Belle Coeur in central Lyon, and provides all of a visitor’s essential needs.

The rooms are small and the bathrooms offer minimal amenities but the air-conditioning works well and the staff is helpful. Mattresses are good and the rooms are quiet so long as you run the AC, rather than open the windows.

Since our last visit (in 2016), they have made some cosmetic updates that do improve the appearance of the hotel – new carpeting in the halls, new tiles in the bathrooms, and an improved color scheme (it used to be all browns & ochres).

And they have finally replaced the foil packs of gel/shampoo with squeezable plastic tubes that are easier to use. But it is still the case that the only toiletries offered are an all-purpose gel labeled as suitable as body wash & shampoo and tiny slivers of soap.
