Flying in to an airport and flying out the next morning… sound familiar? Many people do this on a daily basis and even when staying for just one night, your hotel choice is important. The Hotel NH Lyon Airport is directly across the road from Terminal 1 and 3 which makes it the perfect choice for a quick sleep.

Hotel booking site Kaligo is one of my first two ports of call when I need a hotel. This is because they offer more Avios points than the hotels themselves award in the British Airways Executive Club. As someone who has no loyalty to any hotel chain, I find booking this way to be quite fine.

A Room At The Hotel NH Lyon Airport

Rooms at the hotel feature a comfortable bed with bedside tables, a couch and a work desk. It is everything the business traveller or casual overnight guest may need.


A television is mounted on the wall directly in front of the bed. I quite like the vintage airport photo next to the TV which reminds you of where you are. It is a shame it is not a French photo but it is great nonetheless.


Many hotels provide a safe nowadays and this one is no exception. Mini-bar items such as biscuits and crisps are provided as well as drinks and chocolate in the fridge.


Everything the weary traveller could want is provided here at NH Lyon.

A Contemporary Bathroom

Finding a bathroom that looks good and is also clean is always welcome when visiting a hotel. Everything here at NH Lyon was as I would expect from a decent hotel.


Bath and shower as well as the usual towels are provided. Nothing fantastic, nothing amazing, but clean, contemporary and pleasant.


Of course, the two most important parts of any bathroom are the products on offer and the toilet. Shower Gel, Shampoo and Body Milk are provided. Does anyone actually ever use the body milk slash moisturiser? I know I never do.


I have nothing else to say about the bathroom really, you can see it for yourself and make your own judgement.

Overall Thoughts

Staff at the hotel were very friendly. I asked for and received a wake up call. They kept calling and in my dream state my brain did not recognise the phone tone as something I needed to do anything about. Going above and beyond, someone actually came up and knocked on my door to wake me up. Kudos to the staff for doing that, I appreciated it!

NH Hotel Lyon is the perfect place to have a quick overnight stay at a decent enough price. The hotel features breakfast, a fitness centre and other things but all I did was arrive, sleep and leave. Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
