I stayed here 3 nights, choosing it as being closer to Presqu'Ile and the old town, and hoping for a biew of the Rhone, as it appeared so close. Well forget that idea, although it is close and is 6 floors or so, so is the building on the other corner that blocks any prospect of a view. I had requested a high floor in case there was a view, but no. It is walking distance from where you want to be however. Even the station is a fairly straight walk in 20 mins or you can get a closeby tram there. ... Read more

We stayed here for 3 nights on a mini break with friends. The hotel was very clean with average sized rooms and had coffee making facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated across the road from the River Rhone and was within walking distance of the old town. A very pleasant stay in a lovely city.

Three couples booked for the European Rugby Final weekend and stayed for four nights. Our room was a nice size and clean and the bed was the most comfortable I can remember. The housekeeping was great and all the staff charming and helpful. Breakfast was in a room that I thought would be too small but there was always a table available It was a typical continental breakfast with the hot option of bacon, sausage and eggs (scrambled or boiled) It is situated just off the main road next to the R...

I was there for a business trip. The hotel was in a very nice Rhone river. The hotel was very near to a shopping place across the river. Breakfast was very nice. I am satisfied with the room cleanliness. Easy to find Asian food nearby hotel. If i had a chance, i would stay again at the hotel.

Location is great for getting around the city. It's a small compact hotel. Clean, but a little dated in the room we were in. The reception staff were very helpful and should be praised for that. We walked from the train station, it's about 25 mins max. We found a nice little boulangerie round the corner and did breakfast there instead of at the hotel. The room had a minibar, so we stocked up in out own in room treats. The bed was very comfortable. I think it was a memory foam type mattress.... Read more

This is a lovely hotel in a nice quiet residential area right next to the Rhone. I wish I had booked this for my whole stay in Lyon, not just for my last night. The reception staff were very nice and welcoming. I got to the hotel four hours before check in time and they kindly stored my bag whilst I wondered around. On my return around 3pm, my room was ready. I had a large room which had a big desk, two separate seating areas and a big tv. There is a little fridge with a mini bar. The king size... Read more

We used this hotel as a halfway stopover back to England. It was located very close to the river which offered lots of lively bars open on the Saturday evening and was very nice to take a stroll along and to the beautiful park at the other end. There was a lovely restaurant close by called La River. The staff within the hotel especially Louie was exceptionally helpful and made our short stay very pleasant. X

Just go in the Pont Wilson hotel after several years and still extremely happy with the overall quality of the service and hotel. The staff is extremely polite and helpful. Since my last stay, this hotel has had a complete make-over! The location makes it easy to go to all the historical landmark on foot or using the public transportation. No need to find yourself something closer to the historical section or the Presqu'ile, this hotel is a great value!

One expects to ahve tiny rooms when staying in Europe and this one was a very pleasant surprise that the standard room exceeded my expectations. Moreover, it was also airconditioned which in summer would be pleasurable. While I initially was lost, probably misled by my smart,phone GPS, the location is very convenient to the Liberte stop. From here, the rest of the city is at your toe tips. Breakfast and internet amazingly were pleasurable experiences.

We stayed 3 nights during euro 2016. Its a safe distance from the noise of Place Bellecour with its fanzone. We had a few problems because one night guest probably didn't think they were important. These were: kettle not working, TV channels not tuned, phone to desk not working, some of the free coffee creamer gone off. But we had a balcony family room and that was great to sit on and watch the traffic with river view and Basilica view as well.

This is not a hotel to visit in summer. During our stay when temperatures hit 30C hotel air conditioner did not work. We were given a fan after we asked to change room as whole hotel was without / except the hallways. Air conditioner worked on our last day. Internet was not working for a day. A taxi we booked was not done and we did not miss appointment only because we went into lobby early - in time to get another. The only staff member we praise was Mathilde. She kept sorting the inefficiency ... Read more

Great location situated close to the Pont Wilson bridge. A short walk across the bridge to the main town and then over the Saone into the old town. Also only a stroll to the great outdoor swimming pools. Comfortable room which was a good size and very quiet at night. Staff were very helpful and keen to give advice. We did not have the breakfast as thought it was a bit expensive at 18 euros so walked over to the cafe on Place design Jacobs. Would recommend this hotel if you want a quiet area wit... Read more

This hotel needs a total makeover. It's very very dated, old, dirty and ugly. Not quite sure how it's maintained a 4 star rating, for me it's a 2 star. The only thing it's got going for itself is underground parking in what is a crowded city. Don't book here unless you are desperate for secure parking. Best Western you need to invest in your hotel upkeep I certainly will think twice about booking under your brand again.

Good location and easy access to city and railway station. Quite small room, but beds were good. Air condition was effective and it was really needed because of hot weather. Breakfast room was slightly tight, but food was very good and versatile. The banks of Rhone just in front of the hotel are fixed up and it is a nice place to enjoy the sunset.

We came here from Germany before travelling to our original destination point in Cannes. We were greeted by polite staff, who were happy to help (they spoke english as well, which is good for someone who doesn't speak french as mother tongue). The rooms were clean and tidy, with sufficient air condition. Breakfast was also good. It should also be mentioned that the Hotel is situated in a great area, with just a small walk to the city centre. Overall we had a pleasant stay with this Hotel. Recomm... Read more

I booked the hotel with a special deal through Tripadviser and the hotel, but when I arrived the hotel they changed me normal sale price without understandable reason for it. I don't trust any more for this hotel chain, as like putting on "hook deal" at major online site.

Great location by the river with a short walking distance to the metro for exploring the city. Only a couple of minutes or so of walking distance from the main square, the Place Bellecour. This is a rather small hotel. It nominally has four stars, which I personally find not deserving, to be completely honest. It is more a solid three-star hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, although served in a small restaurant. A good pointer for avoiding the crowd at the restau... Read more

The hotel is in a fairly good location, within walking distance to the old town. Clean with basic amenities which we were happy with, and the staffs were very kind and friendly too. All in all a comfortable stay. Just wished there was a little more provided in the bathroom for example a shower cap etc..

I was disappointed, because of the French standard of this hotel network... needs maintenance for sure, although the bed was comfortable, room ok and breakfast as for French standards quite ok, but - in comparison to the other hotels of this level I was in - poor indeed...

This hotel perfectly situated to see Lyon on foot. The staff are friendly and helpful. They gave us advice on places to visit. There is no bar in the hotel and only a small breakfast room but lots of places to eat and drink nearby. Rooms clean and comfortable.

Free parking on all surrounding roads in the month of August. Great location, lots to see & do. Www had a junior suite which was huge, spotlessly clean would be perfect for a family as there were bunk beds in separate annex off the room. Massive comfiest bed & a balcony which overlooked the river.

Loic working at reception is perhaps the best at his job I've ever encountered! Hotel is in a great position,we got a great room 505 with balcony and view and huge space(even bunk beds which we didn't need)but......despite huge efforts by Loic our wifi was,and I'm reluctant to say it,rubbish. It worked everywhere except our room. The halls,reception,even outside our room! But it was like the Internet was blowing through the room and we were lucky if we caught the breeze.

The bedroom was always cleaned to a excellent stand while we were out exploring the Joys of Lyon.. I only have one Little complaint and that is there is no Bar service available!! As it would have been nice to sit in the lounge and not have to leave the Hotel every time you wanted to get a drink.. Apart from that I can't wait to stay Againš???š???...

We stayed in room #303 which was a good sized twin room. The beds were comfortable and the pillows nice and fluffy! There was a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities as well as a safe. The television only offered French channels but wasn't a major issue. The shower was over the bath which tends to be the norm in Europe but a bit of a problem as you get older. The hotel is one street back from the river and an easy 10 minute walk into the centre of Lyon - another 10 minutes and you're in th... Read more

Great hotel - great location - great friendly staff. This is the perfect place for a stopover in Lyon - convenient public parking nearby. We arrived quite late on Friday night and the reception staff couldnt have been more helpful. The room was a good size - very comfortable bed and a decent sized bathroom. Breakfast was included and was buffet style with lots of options. My husband is gluten free but there was so much choice this was not an issue

The Best Western Hotel du Pont Wilson is a great little hotel in a quiet neighborhood half a block away from the river promenade. A tram line is 100m away, and the subway station is a 5 minute walk. So even though it is not in the city center, it's well connected. My room was modern, spacious and clean. The bed was very comfy! I ate breakfast at the hotel for a reasonable extra fee. It was very good, both selection and quality. The reception staff was, without exception, very friendly, knowledge... Read more

Centrally located, but I am giving it a 3.5, thought it is 4 star. The decor was a bit out dated. Having said that, the service was very friendly. Room and bath room were of a good size for Europe. The hotel offers parking, but limited, and it was full when we booked, but there is a secure public car park about 10 minutes walk, or less, which you will need if you want your car to be safe in Lyon. For safety reasons. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the river, and about a quick 12 minute walk fr... Read more

Well-situated hotel with adequate rooms; bathroom clean and practical. Don't take the breakfast - far too expensive at 16 Euros - go out! The hotel is a short distance from the main part of Lyon and is near a tram line. On a summer evening, crowds gather on the bank of the Rhone, making for a happy evening stroll out to see what the locals do.

While on my business trip in Lyon I stayed in this hotel which was very nice and clean. Room was nice with great big bed and bathroom. Hotel is in the center of the town so just few steps from all of the major sightseeing places. Would give it five stars but the breakfast choice was really poor and too expensive so it would be better not to take the breakfast and go out because there are lots of nice places just nearby for far more better choice with fair price.
