Best Western has earned its reputation as one of the best value for the money hotel chains in the world, and the Best Western Saphir Lyon is no exception. While the hotel doesn't feel decadent, it does feel classy, upscale, and professional. The strong lines of the Best Western's iconic exterior look as good in Lyon as they do in New York or Los Angeles.

Similarly, the black square tile of the main lobby combined with black marble-topped front desk made of amber-colored wood doesn't scream luxury, but instead speaks confidently of board room successes. That's not to say that a family of tourists wouldn't fit in here - many families have excellent experiences at the Best Western Saphir Lyon - but the hotel definitely makes an effort to cater to business travelers with their free public WiFi and fully capable business center.

Exploring the Best Western and Lyon 

In addition to the business center, this Best Western has a self parking area (a definite plus in a crowded city like Lyon), an on-site lounge/bar area, and tour/ticket help. This last is a huge benefit for leisure or business travelers who either don't speak French or can only "get by." Being able to work through a mediator to buy tickets saves everyone involved many headaches. 

Whether you choose to take advantage of the ticket assistance or not, the Best Western Saphir Lyon is in an undeniably good location. It is just two miles from Notre Dame Basilica and only three miles from Bellecour Square and St. Jean Cathedral, placing all the most essential tourist sites in Lyon within easy striking distance.

If you want to get somewhere further away and don't want to drive, Lyon's extensive metro system is also easily accessible.

Your Best Western Hotel Room

Although there are several different types of room (Single, Double, Triple, or Family), they all have similar features. Each room has either plush carpet or hardwood floors; if you have a preference, make sure to ask if that type of room is available when you book your room. All rooms also have comfortable beds, free WiFi, coffee makers, private bathrooms, and hair dryers. Basically, they have everything you are likely to need during your stay. 

The Bottom Line

The Best Western Saphir Lyon is a great option if you are looking for an affordable hotel while still feeling confident in your room quality.
