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.
"The front desk staff are the stars in this hotel"
The hotel may not be four star, but it is clean safe and comfortable. The room rates are also not four star, and you get more than what you pay for. What truly stands out is the friendly and patient service provided by the front desk staff. It is obviously a priority of this establishment.
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.
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.
The front desk staff, especially Laure were so helpful, even recommending a local place for a haircut. Great location for those who walk. We walked to / from the train station Part Dieu. The grocery store is right around the corner and the kitchen is well equipped for meal preparation. We then walked to many attractions, highlighted on the local map provided by the front desk. This accommodation takes recycling seriously, providing appropriate receptacles. We did not partake of the breakfast offering, so no comment there. WiFi strong and reliable. Linens of nice quality, appliances worked as intended, including the dishwasher. No surprises / just as pictured and described. Would definitely recommend for those wanting to be close to the train station and wanting to experience the city by walking. The Museum of Fine Arts and the PARC provided much enjoyment.
Great location a short walk away from restaurants and bars. Room was clean and simple but lovely. Staff were very friendly and complimentary tea and coffee machine in the lobby area when required. Can't fault the hotel as it was everything we needed
