Was there for a longer weekend. The staff was great, room was pretty small but really beatiful. If you are 185cm+ tall you'll have difficulties with the shower (the ceiling is very low). Breakfast was also great.

As seen from across the pedestrian mall, this beautiful white building of classic design invites you back after your day in Lyon. We were so blessed as to stay in a corner room overlooking the oft mentioned carousel, a source of endless entertaiment. Within an easy walk are markets, restaurants, shops of all descriptions, and the Fine Arts Museum. The...

Our spacious room put to rest the contention that one can't find comfortable accommodations in a city in France. The hotel is clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Location is ideal for shopping in the Lyon core area as well as for easy access to the old city and the tram to the Notre Dame de Fourviers that overlooks Lyon...

We stayed 4 nights at the hotel in September with another couple. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located convenient to shopping and restaurants (and a very charming carousel!).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Be enchanted by the Carlton Lyon hotel, located on the peninsula. Despite being fully renovated in 2013, it has retained its authenticity and personality, blending contemporary comfort with sophistication. Relax in one of the 80 tastefully decorated rooms, in the wellness center or in the cozy atmosphere of the bar. The hotel is just a 5-minute walk from the Bellecour metro stop and is the ideal base for exploring Lyon, with its opera house, museums, the St. Jean cathedral and more.StoryLocated between the Rhone and Saone rivers, the Carlton Lyon hotel was built in 1894 as a "petit palace" in Lyons. Punctuated by its forged iron balconies, dome and rotundas, its splendid Haussmann facade echoes the refinement of its historical decor.The hotel's "Signature" rooms also highlight artists who have stayed there. Travelers will appreciate immersing themselves in the splendid adornments of the many talents that have visited the hotel. ... more   less
