"Convenient and excellent value for money"
Hotel is 5 minutes' walk from Part Dieu station, convenient for rail travellers (frequent trains, trams, metros and buses go to the old city centre), in a part of town which is not particularly pretty, but didn't strike me as an unsafe area. Similarly, while the building is no architectural gem (7-storey [?] block with annex behind), it seemed in good repair. Apartment itself was on 2 levels: downstairs were bathroom, kitchenette and dining/sitting area (with sofa-bed). Up steep wooden staircase was the bedroom, with a king-size bed, tv, cupboards, plus small balcony. The apartment was clean and in good state of repair. While not plush, furniture and equipment were more than adequate, in good repair, and I found it comfortable. Towels etc. were provided. I didn't take advantage of breakfast (available at extra cost) as self-catering very easy: mini-supermarket 100m away. Apartment overlooked fairly busy street but I did not find it particularly noisy and had no difficulty sleeping. Reception staff were helpful, efficient and friendly. All in all, for the amount I paid, this was an excellent, convenient, and comfortable base for a few days. No romantic getaway, and as an apartment it doesn't benefit from all the facilities of a hotel (e.g. room service), but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to an independent traveller in need of a convenient place to stay.
