Check out the video of my room, link is below. I stayed at the Apparthôtel for 30 days. I loved the hotel staff. They were very helpful to me in many ways, sometimes just for a laugh or a good morning was awesome traveling solo can sometimes be lonely. But I always had someone to help me at this hotel either for asking where to go for dinner or a where to buy a flat iron. Here are my pros and cons for Apparthôtel. The cons were very few!
Centrally locate hotel next to entertainment, train station, shopping, restaurants, cinéma, malls and parks
Dog friendly hotel!
So much space in the studio room for lugguage and the Murphy bed that can be stored for lots of extra room.
Helpful, friendly staff
Clean rooms, and nice cleaning staff
Onsite wash machine and dryer
After hours number if you get locked out of your room
Cable tv, international networks
The Bed is at least a real bed, but it was hard on my back.
There’s no events for guest to mingle, I met some great guest there it would’ve been fun to have some évents.
More diversity among guest if possible, Annecy it’s is not very diverse per se. Staff was diverse but needs improvement
I went to the fish spa in Marseille! I was so excited to try this for the first time. It’s a pedicure but with fish eating off all the dead skin. The owner opened the shop just for me and served me wine and bottled water. The hospitality was so spectacular you must visit the O Lounge Fish Spa the next time you’re in Marseille! My feet feel soft and new. I’m so glad I got an opportunity to go while in Marseille, France for the weekend.
I asked the owner how did he come up with the idea to open a shop like this? He said he was sitting around with some friends and they came up with the idea over drinks and when they decided to open the fish spa his answer was: why not!! Now the shop has been successful since it started two years ago. I love that “why not”! Great quote for entrepreneurs everywhere- Why Not!!

I love the hotel location of Hotel Du Simplon and the shower head was wonderful. That sounds steamy pun intended its was just a nice shower good pressure. That’s important.
The hotel Staff is nice. The bed is comfortable for Européen standards… But I I didnt like that everytime my neighbor flushed the toliet in the next room my room sounded like it was flooding, like a tsunami hit France.
they charge around 5 euros per day for my dog, which is not a lot but in hotels I dont think it’s right to call themselves “dog friendly” but then charge extra when they don’t charge extra for people. I would rather leave a nice tip for the cleaning staff but not both. Plus my dog is shaved and trained no extra hair to clean. With that said I would recommend this hotel.
There was a option to inclued a breakfast for 9€ and you can order drinks at the réception desk coffee, juice, tea, etc. I also liked there was a USB charger for my phone on the headboard. The hotel is centrally located a 8 min walk from the bus/ train station Lyon Gare Routière Perrache. Lots of restaurants and things to do close by! There’s also a laundry mat right cross from the hotel, for all the fellow travelers I know how it can be!! There’s a resturant in the hotel and I didn’t get a chance to go but when I arrived whatever they were looking smelled so good I could smell from my room on the first floor!!
