    4/5 Good

    The room was incredibly small, but I was only staying for one night, so it was adequate for my needs. I was able to leave my suitcase at the hotel before check-in. It had already been taken to my room by the time I returned, which was nice. The 24-hour front desk staff was helpful as I checked in very late and checked out very early.

    The beds were very uncomfortable. It is very expensive for what you get.

    Staff is friendly and very helpful. Front desk is staffed 24 hours. Breakfast available on site; either buffet or continental at reasonable price. Grocery nearby for additional needs. Close to park and many restaurants, specifically F/B around the corner. The chef does it all and it’s fabulous! Love the bed and breakfast feel of this hotel. Rooms not huge but super clean and perfect for the needs of this traveling couple!

    Home Away From Home!

    We stayed at the Hotel du Simplon on two different occasions during the World Cup. While we took a two day break, the hotel was kind enough to store our extra luggage until we returned. Our rooms were not huge, just big enough for the two of us. If you need a large room, this hotel is not for you. However if you want to stay at a hotel with fantastic customer service; that feels like a house, then this is your place. The owner is very proud of his two hotels in Lyon. They have been in his family for a long time. The rooms are small but clean and efficient. There is breakfast onsite for 12€, which has everything you need and is much more convenient than searching for breakfast elsewhere. The front desk is 24 hours, which means you turn in your key when you leave and retrieve it when you come back. No losing this key! We really enjoyed this hotel and would return if we come back to Lyon.
