The hotel was very nice. The breakfast was good, service was very nice and helpful, and the room was huge by European standards for a two-star hotel. The only drawback was the slipperiness of the tub, which had a hand-held Water Pik attached to the tap to turn it into a "shower". It is probably wise as a general rule to bring shower shoes on a trip to Europe anyway just in case.
Hotel de Verdun was our central location during our stay in France. It is an older building. However, the rooms are very clean and the hospitality shown by the staff was excellent. They were very helpful in recommending places to dine, how to reach various locations in the city and they were especially hospitable during our unexpected extra week due to the volcano eruptions in Iceland. We definitely would return to Hotel de Verdun if the opportunity presents itself and to visit this region in France once again. Our hotel was around the corner from the Gare Perrache where we could take the tramway to different parts of town. Our walk to Old Lyon and the main dining restaurants was about 10-15 minutes.
Not sure if the hotel is air conditioned which would be excellent during the hot summer days. Our room did not have a bar fridge. We are not certain if that is common in most hotels in France.
Overall our experience was great and we definitely would return.
We ended up staying at this hotel for two nights instead of the original one night that we booked. It was a great location to get around and see stuff in Lyon. And the staff was so helpful and courteous. Loved the room, it was charming and comfortable.
Handy to main rail station for tram from airport and TGV to other parts.
Cheerful breakfast room and reasonable selection.
Good value, clean, modest facility.
Would have preferred an electric jug instead of the coffee maker.
We booked this hotel as one central to the sights of Lyon - we wanted the option to return to the hotel for a rest during the day. The reception staff could not have been more helpful and when we mentioned the (temporary) renovation noise from the next door room (which was not part of the hotel) our room was changed without hesitation. Free coffee from a machine in reception and bottled water was an unexpected bonus.
