NileGuide Expert tip:
For great French and Lyonnaise food, head to the conveniently located Caro de Lyon, just a few minutes' away from the hotel on on Rue de Bat-d'Argent.
The Mercure Lyon Plaza République is situated in a uniquely central location within the city of Lyon. Sited on the narrowest part of the Presqu'île (peninsular), the river Rhône is a few minute walk to the west and the Saone; a few minute to the east. In addition, the hotel is five minutes' away from Place Bellecour (north) and Place Terreaux (south). From the Hotel you can also walk easily to the historic area of Lyon Vieux (Old Lyon) and Fourvière, or use the nearby underground station (Cordeliérs) to access other areas of the city. The pedestrian shopping area of Rue de la République is right on your doorstep, where - in addition to high street stores - you can also find many of Lyon's must-visit cafés, bars and restaurants.
The exterior of the hotel exhibits the characteristics of a classic 19th century edifice, which is standard of the architecture in the area. While Rue de la République is a pedestrian only area, the Mercure Lyon Plaza République is physically located on Rue Stella, which sees quite a lot of traffic during the day. The hotel has a total of 78 rooms ranging from standard to privilege. All rooms provide simple but comfortable furnishings; however, the standard rooms may prove to be a bit on the small side for some guests.
Other amenities of the Mercure Lyon Plaza République include a small bar and restaurant area, which offers breakfast in the morning and drinks and light snacks between twelve midday and twelve midnight. The hotel staff are friendly and speak a wide variety of languages and are keen to assist you with any tours you want to make in the city.
