You get what you pay for
This was my second stay at a budget hotel in Lyon and I preferred the other hotel. Hotel des Savoies is quirky in its decor and lay-out but the black wallpaper makes it feel a little like a dungeon. It is clean and comfortable though. Although the rooms are small, they feature a good use of space so I never felt as though I was lacking anything. The showers are great. One thing which was bothersome is that the latching mechanism of the doors require that the doors be slammed rather forcefully in order to latch. It was other people slamming their doors which woke me up every day during my stay. Although the noises of other guests never kept me from sleeping, when awake, I did notice that I could hear entire conversations of other guests from my room.
