Enjoy a Budget-Friendly Room in France

Situated just a short walk from Lyon’s city center, the Hotel du Helder is an ideal base for guests who want to easily explore the surrounding area. With simple rooms and an affordable price, this two-star hotel is best for travelers on a budget who only need the basics.

Explore Lyon on Foot

The Hotel du Helder Rhone sits on the left bank of the Rhone River. The University Lyon 2, Textile Museum, Place Bellecour, St. John’s Cathedral, and Gallo-Roman Museum are within about a mile of the hotel, putting guests within easy access of some of the area’s best highlights. Exploring the surrounding area is easy thanks to the nearby Part Dieu and Perrache tramway stations. The Guillotiere Metro Station is about one-quarter mile away.

Cozy Up in Simple Rooms

The Hotel du Helder spans six floors and two buildings. Guests can choose from one, two, or three single beds or one double bed. These arrangements make the hotel ideal for friends traveling together who want to fit the maximum number of people in each room without sharing beds. Each room has a private bathroom.

Flat-screen televisions placed high on swivel mounts make the most of limited space. Rooms offer satellite television. Small tables or desks are available in most rooms. Select rooms offer a balcony or terrace, so make sure you ask for this feature with your reservation if you’d like to step out and overlook the neighborhood. Rooms are not air-conditioned though they are heated.

Dine On-Site Each Morning

Guests can enjoy a breakfast buffet on-site daily for an added fee. The meal features simple fare, but makes it easy to grab a quick bite before heading out on the town. Common areas of the hotel have free Wi-Fi. A private parking garage is available for a fee, charged per 12 hours. Bike rentals are on-site as well for travelers without cars. The staff is bilingual, speaking both English and French. Guests can get help navigating the surrounding area and planning daily excursions at the 24-hour front desk.

The Bottom Line
