Comfortable stay with friendly atmosphere
We thoroughly enjoyed a very comfortable stay in the Okko hotel, which served as a great jumping off point to explore the wonderful city of Lyon. Our room was well-equipped if a little basic in terms of finishes, and the bed and air-conditioning made for a very restful night's sleep.
This hotel is located along the Rhone River, just across the river from l’Hotel de Ville and main activities.
Pros: Convenient location, excellent breakfast included, wine & generous appetizers included in the evening (almost a meal!), very friendly staff.
Cons: Our room (313) was typically smaller, as normally found in European hotels, with very little seating area. A more serious issue was the sliding shower door was too difficult for one person to open after a shower, as it stuck to the floor. We brought this to the attention of the staff on the first night(Friday) and they said that they couldn’t move us because the hotel was full, but they would attend to the problem on Saturday. Nothing was done on the weekend, perhaps understandably, but on Monday when we checked out, we were told that this was a problem that they were aware of in a number of rooms, but that they were waiting for the work to be done. This was all the more disappointing - they knew about a problem with our room, but rented it and didn’t tell us about it. I explained to them that they shouldn’t rent this room out to any single person before the work was complete, as the person would have great difficulty opening the shower door without help.
Greta city seeing hotel and business hotel
Modern and trendy hotel with excellent location, near to the city and overlooking the river with fantastic views. The hotel is very cool, the inclusive services are fantastic and the staff very quick to help. The bathroom pods are very artistic but the privacy is lacking if there s more than one of you! The local tasters in the evening is a great addition
Dear Finn, Thank you so much for such a nice review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed Okko location, its design and services. Our staff is always doing its best to satisfy our customers. The Okko Hotels team chose to tear up the rulebook for 4* hotels to conceive a functional and design space, a real urban cocoon of 17 m ², which meets the needs of today's travelers. It is the modernism to conceive such a deisgned bathroom with a vast Italian-style shower decorated with a ceramic any height, to relax while taking care of you. Thank you again for you comment and we are so grateful to see that all our efforts and actions are recognized :) Best regards, Caroline F. General Manager
Saw the room and walked straight out.
This hotel is a hostel not a hotel. No bar, one member of staff, room was terrible, sheets not ironed (maybe the trend?) the cheapest of everything, no wardrobe ( hangers on a flimsy rail) wouldn't recommend to stay at all.
Hello, Thank you for your review :) First of all, it would have been more pleasant for you and our staff to come to reception and talk to us, for sure. We invit you to have a look at our website and see what is our concept which is very new in the hospitality sector. It is in fact a hotel and not a hostel, you are not sharing your room with other persons. Indeed, there is no bar at the hotel but we offer a list of various alcohol that our staff can serve you if you ask them. Plus, there are two fridges full of free drinks such a coke, orangina, water, badoit and so on and self service coffee machine, as explained at your check in. If you did not enjoy your room, well we are deeply sorry. Our rooms are efficient, practical and modern. The Okko Hotels team chose to tear up the rulebook for 4* hotels to conceive a functional and design space, a real urban cocoon of 17 m ², which meets the needs of today's travelers. About you comment on the sheets, there are not the cheapest sheets with a bad look. In fact, we work with the Greek company Coco-Mat, specialized in quality bedding in natural fibers, to create a comfortable and eco-conscious bed. We added it pillows and a braid in feathers, treated in a ecological way against allergies. So you can try " Sleep one nature " experience, promised by Coco-Mat and Okko Hotels. We chose to stay 100% natural and opted for bed-linen in cotton bed and linen, weaved on the lakesides of Como by the company Gastaldi. Our team really liked the very contemporary aspect and the comforting side of the fabric and the linen which reminds family houses. Hopefully, you will come back and enjoy your stay. Best regards, Caroline F. General Manager.
Not happy with this hotel at all
Room was very small, only 1 bar of soap was there in first day, breakfast options were so few, toilet and bathroom was so close to bed, overall didn’t like the hotel at all
Dear Leily, We are deeply sorry to hear that you did not like our rooms and the breakfast. Indeed, the room conception is the basis of the hotel business. The Okko Hotels team chose to tear up the rulebook for 4* hotels to conceive a functional and design space, a real urban cocoon which usually meets the needs of today's travelers. It is written in your room that if you wish to get conditioner, body milk, toothbrush, you simply have to ask for it at the reception. We are quite surprised that you found the breakfast did not have many options. We always put different kind of bread, a brioche, cereals, gluten free snacks, two type of juices, various local yogourt, ham, cheese, various jam, eggs, salad fruit with two types and so on. Once again, we are sorry if the OKKO Hotel concept did not suit you. We hope that you would come back again and appreciate a new OKKO experience. Best Regards, Caroline F. General Manager
Excellent hotel and great quality/price ratio
We had a very pleasant stay at the OKKO in Lyon. The hotel is perfectly located, one can easily reach all the main sites by walk. The staff was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Our room was small but very comfortable and clean.
