Lyon cheap hotels are possible to find depending upon what time of the year you are traveling and where in town you plan to stay. Sometimes accommodations in the city center in upscale areas such as Croix-Rousse, Vieux Lyon, and the Presqu’ile can tend to be more expensive than those in more remote areas. This does not mean that you need to stay far outside the city at all to find Lyon budget hotels. It’s a matter of planning in advance and looking for available deals. The winter can be busy in Lyon as people travel through to the Alps in the west, and summer is a busy travel time throughout Western Europe. Finding discount accommodations in Lyon is a lot easier when booking in non-peak season times.
