As for the hotel, it feels like a landmark worth visiting in itself! Lyon celebrates its 'Fête des Lumières' festival each year and the interior design of the hotel was inspired by both this festival and the Lumière brothers who are considered the founders of cinema.

    The hotel is just perfect!!! We have arrived late and the reception guys were very welcoming and multi language speaking, English, Spanish, German, Italian. It has parking and that was a very important point, specially when you are traveling by car. Beds were really good, and the room was quiet and clean. Breakfast was super good, great variety and nice taste.

    This is a great budget hotel with hostel-style facilities. This means that you have access to a kitchen and laundry room, which is something you don't usually get if you stay in a low cost hotel. The room and hotel in general were perfect for our stay. Everything is clean and new, and the room was spacious and bright. I noticed that there were no single-use plastic cups or the like in the room, and that guests are encouraged to reuse towels, which is a great step in terms of ecology!

    Highly recommended! There’s not a whole lot going on here in terms of social activities due to COVID-19, but if you’re after a well-priced, comfortable and centrally-located hostel, this is it! The rooms are exceptionally large and have aircon equipped which was a lifesaver during the August heatwave. The staff were all super friendly, especially the guy at front desk with anklet who struck up chats and made everyone feel welcome.

    Very good hostel: clean, value for money, Friendly. Space in the room is optimized : there are some tricks both to get place and to keep your comfort. Breakfast, in option, is huge and excellent.

    Really enjoyed my stay here, a lot of the reviews say that it feels like a hotel, but i didn’t experience this. The dorms are well set out, with shelves, cupboards and cubby holes for privacy. If anything there could be bigger lockers. Very big and professional hostel. Staff were so nice, welcoming and helpful at check in. I’d stay at Meininger again wherever int he world.

    We had to book this place last minute and were very pleased with what we found! Our room was comfortable and spacious, and although the location isn’t the best to see the city it’s very close to useful public transport links!

    The room was spacious and clean with a comfortable double bed. However, the chair was too low in relation to the table (for my height of 170 cm), so writing/typing was not very ergonomic. Nice quarter on the other side of rue Berthelot (bars, cafés and restaurants).

    Super clean rooms and great design with comfy beds. Breakfast was a bit overpriced for what was on offer. Decent location although quite far from the main station, for me it was a bit out of the way but I can imagine it works well otherwise as its near metro. The atmosphere was quiet so stay here if that's what you're looking for. Got a very restful sleep!

    We stayed on a private room which was good. The room size is good for 2 Person inclusive with a dog and the AC kept the room fresh and cozy to sleep. It was fantastic!! However, unfortunately regarding the cleaning I cannot rate on the same level. We were disappointed to see the floor of the bathroom was visible dirty, and there was hair everywhere around in the room. Really hope they can improve the cleaning.
