"Wonderful Location - Great Breakfast - Excellent Starr"
If you plan to stay in historic Vieux Lyon, College Hotel is a great choice! It's location is perfect for exploring the old streets, buildings, historic sites and Gallo-Roman museum. Great choice of restaurants, close to the bus, metro etc and near brides to walk over to other Lyon neighborhoods. The breakfast - in a cute schoolroom setting - is delicious and abundant with nice choices.
"Great hotel if YOU WANT TO BE ROBBED THEN IGNORED BY MANAGEMENT"
Liked the concept of quirky hotel but probably serves me right for not staying in a chain hotel with basic necessities like a manager who acknowledges and supports guests when they have been robbed and gives information about a so called safe behind reception ' Like others before me I stayed in this hotel in the summer and had hundreds of pounds worth of tickets stolen from my room. The rooms are spartan and there is nowhere to hide valuables . Being an honest person I assumed they would be safe in my room as I had the only key apart from the staff. I went out for a few hours and during the hours of seven thirty pm and ten thirty pm my room was burgled along with four other separate guests who all just happened to have football tickets in their rooms. I had not handed my key into reception as I suspected it may get taken by someone as the desk was poorly manned. However I will leave you the trip advisor reader to work out how a random burglar managed to rob separate five rooms in three hour period, take only money and football tickets all from football fans, with no sign of a break in and get past the receptionist who was ten feet allegedly from the hotel lift. The burglar would need to be a Clairvoyant as he would need to guess out of the many rooms which rooms were empty, had football tickets in AND be an expert burglar and be invisible to staff to break into five rooms without a forcible entry. I have another theory but I will let trip advisor readers make there own minds up. My favourite bit of this whole ordeal as other writers have commented is the receptionist did not care one little bit, didn't phone the Police to attend and simply told us to get a taxi at our own expense to the local Police Station. We got no apology and I have had no compensation other than a email after I complained again several weeks later asking for proof of purchase of the tickets. DON'T GO BACK TO COLLEGE ! Only learning experience you will receive is not to book a room without a room safe and CCTV in a four star hotel. Four Star .............really ......'
"Stop over for Lyon"
Interesting place with themed school things. Big hooks, lockers, desks all from school buildings. Clean and with air conditioningoning. A bit quirky. Book your carpark space in advance €18 a night. Nice place next door for breakfast. On the doorstep of the old town. Fooderies everywhere!
"Overall an excellent place to stay"
Very well located hotel, just a few minutes away from City hall. I loved the terrace, the beautifully decorated dining room and the very cosy and comfy lounge. Bedrooms are ok, nothing fancy, don't expect anything special, just a place to sleep. It is a very clean and quiet hotel that serves very good breakfast. Good value for money.
"very cute place"
found this by accident late in the day as we hadn't prebooked any accommodation - what a little gem, very quaint ! as the name suggests, its furnished like a school - the dining area has school desks etc. great location with a selection of cafes and bars in a cobbled street below
