« Excellent stay »

Our family of 4 enjoyed an excellent stay at this hotel. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Given the size of the city, I expected a noisy evening, but we all slept through the night without a sound. The hotel has a small leisure pool, which was a nice treat for our sons. It, too, was very clean and comfortable. We ate only breakfast in the hotel restaurant, and the food was very good with excellent staff and meticulously clean surroundings. The desk staff was friendly and helpful, and the building is conveniently located to restaurants, the market, and sightseeing. It took our family about 40 minutes to walk to the Roman ruins and cathedral, which we welcomed after a long trip and the beauty of the surroundings. Again, excellent stay.

« Cheaters / Do not use Accorhotels points there »

We made booking in June, price was approx. 500 EUR. We prepaid 460 EUR by credit card and 40 EUR using Accorhotels points. During the checkout, we learn that "value of our stay was 500 EUR, but we prepaid only 460 EUR" and we were asked to pay 40 EUR . Our explanation, that 40 EUR was already covered from loyality programm points, was not accepted. Therefore we had to pay 40 EUR agin... And Archotel did not respond to my official complaint so far .... It is realy shame - hotel is generaly good, with nice rooms and good location - but with such approach I surely will not stay here the next time.

Dear Jaroslav, I am very sorry to read your comment. I replied to you by email personnally to resolve the situation and give you compensation. We are more than happy to welcome Le ClubAccorhotels guests and I am sorry we missed your €40 voucher on your bill. Please be assured this is not our habit and I will take personnally charge of the organization of your next stay in Accor hotels. I wish you a very nice day, Best regards, Clémence

« Perfect Location, Spacious Rooms, Just Fantastic! »

My family and I travelled to Lyon on a leisure trip. We wanted to find a hotel that is centrally located, that we can walk to the tourist hotspots and we were not disappointed! Mercure Grand Hotel Saxe Lafayette had rooms which wowed us from the very beginning - clean white sheets, tastefully designed with comfortable beds. I have read about rooms being very small in France (perhaps only applicable to Paris), but the one in Lyon was definitely not - it was very spacious. We had a King-Sized bed for my parents and TWO queen sized beds for a twin room between my brother and I. It was certainly more than what we expected. Their buffet breakfast was going at Eur14.50. That however, we felt was not the best value as it was mainly a continental breakfast with a minimal selection of hot food (scrambled eggs and ham). Other than that, we would highly recommend the hotel, especially for the price we paid per night. Thank you!

Clémence G, Responsable commercial at Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette, responded to this review

Dear guest, Thanks a lot for your feedback! We are glad you appreciated the size of our rooms and the comfort of our twin rooms -these are perfect for family trips as well. We are sorry you did not appreciate that much our buffet breakfast, keep in minf we also offer a €8.5 Express Breakfast at the bar, which may be more convenient. We look forward to welcoming you another time! Do not hesitate to contact us, we will be glad to offer you our best rates. Best regards Clémence

« A great place to stay. »

This was one of the nicer hotels I've ever stayed in. Facilities were very modern and well maintained. The staff was most helpful in all respects. The location is a bit of a walk from the Old Town area where most of the tourist attractions are located, but the city has an excellent public transit system with metro, trams & buses near the hotel and very easy to use to get around. There is a grocery store right around the corner, which is convenient, although there did not seem to be anyplace nearby for breakfast except in the hotel. I would not hesitate to stay there again if visiting Lyon. For the price, an excellent hotel.

Clémence G, Responsable commercial at Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette, responded to this review

Dear guest, Thanks a lot for your comment! We are pleased you enjoyed your stay from Alercia to Lyon and relaxed in our place. We are glad you used public transports, the tram stops 50m away from the hotel and is very helpful to discover the city. We look forward to help your organizing your next stay in Lyon or somewhere else. Best regards, Clémence

« Room Assessment »

We took the previledge room and it was really nice. the room was spacious and very clean. The staff are also friendly.One other particular thing I admire was that the internet is free unlike other five star hôtels.

« A Lyonnaise Christmas »

Good value hotel in a good location near Part Dieu train station and a short walk to foodie heaven Les Halles de Lyon. Friendly bar staff. The bed was very comfortable and loved how extra pillows were provided.

« Lovely rooms, and easy to get into town. »

This hotel is located in the business district near Part-Dieu. This means it's lovely and quiet, well, on a Friday night it was. Still only 10 minutes walk into the old town centre though. The room was lovely with a massive comfy bed, and the bathroom was well kitted out. One thing in the bathroom though, the step into the bath must be a couple of feet high, so even for me at 6'2" it was a bit of a stretch to get in, so elderly small folks watch out! We didn't eat in the hotel as we were there for the Bouchons in the old town, but the hotel was very smart overall. Checkin staff were friendly, numerous, and very knowledgable on where to go in Lyon. I'd stay there again without hesitation.

Dear client, Thanks for your comment! We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our hotel. We will be more careful about the bathroom. With our best regards, Clémence Guelton

« EXCELLENT LOCATION, HOTEL & STAFF »

Mercure Grand Hotel Saxe Lafayette was my first Mercure Hotel. I stayed here in Lyon, France, in October 2013 and honestly could not have picked a better place. The Hotel was in an Excellent Location, it was Extremely Clean, Modern and Very Spacious. The room was Very Comfortable, and so was the Bed and Shower. The Hotel Staff was Very Helpful, Respectful and very very Kind. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Clémence G, Responsable relations clients at Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette, responded to this review

Dear client, Thanks for all your compliments. We look forward to welcoming you, friends or family and offer them the same great experience in Lyon. Shall you need any tips about the city do not hesitate to contact us! Best regards Clémence Guelton

« Great Hotel »

Great room not far from the centre of Lyon and the train station. Safe location. The room itself was large and very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. If you're thinking about booking a hotel in Lyon, you won't be disappointed.

« Good as a base for exploring »

Very convenient for business travelers, and good distance to city center. The hotel is located in a quiet area. It has a small I side pool very convenient with kids, and have free breakfast for them. We stayed for 5 days and has a very good time as a base for exploring around. There is a Mercure closer to the city center that could have a better location if you plan to tour that area.

Clémence G, Responsable relations clients at Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette, responded to this review

Dear Monica, Thanks a lot for your warm comment. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our hotel with your children so that you've been able to discover the city during those 5 days. When the weather is hot it's indeed relaxing to refresh in our swimming pool. We look forward to welcoming you again in Lyon, we will give you some inside tips to discover new places there. Best regards, Clémence Guelton

« Stay for 3 nights »

Fantastic privelege room!! Very friendly staff. Close to TGV station and centre of Lyon. Negative: we arrived at 10 o'clock for breakfast and felt that we were late (you can eat till 10.30). Some things were already gone and not refilled.

Clémence G, Responsable relations clients at Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette, responded to this review

Dear client, Thanks a lot for your warm comment! We are glad you enjoyed the Privilege room for 3 nights. We noted your comment about the breakfast, we are working on it to improve this service at the hotel. Be sure you will not be disappointed when you will comme back at the Mercure Lyon Centre Saxe Lafayette. With our best regards, Clémence Guelton
