A Good Price for the Amenities

Perfect for the Budget Traveler

Hôtel Athena Part-Dieu is an affordable modern hotel in the center of Lyon, France. It lies within walking distance of Bellecour Square, giving guests a home base that's close to the action. Even better, the hotel's site next to the Part Dieu Train Station gives guests immediate access to public transportation. Hôtel Athena Part-Dieu is perfect for budget travelers who don’t want to compromise on comfort. Although the hotel may need a refresh, it’s still a good price for the amenities.

Amiable Amenities

Friendly staff are available 24 hours a day for convenient checkouts and check-ins. Hôtel Athena Part-Dieu employs a helpful concierge staff to answer your questions about Lyon and make reservations for you at the most exciting spots around the city. If you prefer to stay close by, there is a pleasant bar and lounge on site. An enjoyable breakfast is available for a charge. Other amenities of this smoke-free hotel include free Wi-Fi, two meeting rooms, and complimentary newspapers in the public area. 

Comfortable Accommodations

Hôtel Athena Part-Dieu offers 122 rooms and three room types: Standard Single, Twin, and Double. Room decor is modest with slightly outdated furnishings. Rooms include satellite televisions, telephones, and desks for working from the hotel. Although unassuming, the air-conditioned rooms at Hôtel Athena have one important feature, soundproofing. There’s no need to worry about hearing your neighbors, the elevator, or the soundtrack of the city if you’re a light sleeper. Each guest rooms is completely smoke-free.

Walk the Neighborhood

Because Hôtel Athena Part-Dieu is close to everything, sightseeing begins right outside the reception doors. Take in a movie at the Cinéma Pathé Lyon, or take a stroll through the idyllic Parc de la Tete d'Or. You’re also within a 30-minute walk to the center of town, Place Bellecour. Other notable attractions include Galerie le Réverbère, Musée Lumière, and the Café de la Cloche. Take an impromptu expedition around Lyon and discover the local cafes and French boutiques. If you want to explore further out, hop on a train at the nearby Part Dieu Station.

The Bottom Line

Perhaps Hôtel Athena Part-Dieu is not the most luxurious hotel in Lyon, but it does offer one of the best returns for the price. You’ll be close to everything at Hôtel Athena, but with the soundproofed rooms, you won’t hear it. It’s the perfect budget hotel.
