“A very confusing description.”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

I don't understand why this entry exists in a category in which it doesn't belong.

As others have stated here, Cour Des Loges is a Hotel - not an attraction or a traboule with public access. (In fact there is a notice adjacent to the Hotel entrance which states that access is for Hotel guests only.) For this reason - I must give it a negative rating in this category.

However, if you aren't staying at the Hotel, and wish to see the impressive interior courtyard - you still can, for the price of a drink at the bar, or for the best view - a meal at the (very expensive) Michelin star awarded Restaurant, located in the courtyard itself.

As for the Hotel - it is beautiful. I stayed there recently - my review is posted under it's proper entry as a Hotel.

“Très chic”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

... mais très cher aussi ! This boutique hotel is located in a medieval building which has been lovingly transformed. It has all the elements of the style of Vieux Lyon. Unfortunately you cannot visit the hotel unless you are a guest, or willing to order a (very expensive) drink. Still, if you can get in it's more than worth the visit.

“Visit les traboules”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

At the tourist office I booked the guided tour of Les traboules in the old town. The guide was very good. Once you know how to have access to les traboules, you can easily visit them yourself on the croix rouge (north). It is very special and worhwhile visiting.

“title of this entry should be changed”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

"Traboules" is one thing and "Hotel Cour des Loges" is another.
In Lyon, especially in the old town, one can go from one street to another by walking through the passageways built in the houses "traboules" (there are about 200 traboules all over Lyon). One could do so in the past, by now many of the main entrances of these houses are locked to prevent people from going in.
The interest of going through a traboule is to be able to admire the interior courtyard.
One can go into the courtyard of 16 rue du Boeuf, for example, to see the pink tower, which is lovely, but it is not a traboule as the courtyard does not lead to another road/house.
"Hotel Cour des Loges" is a hotel, and the employees do not let people, especially tourists, in to look at their atrium.

“Hotel Cour des Loges”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Luxiously restaured, this hotel is for stars or rich people, but the brasserie is very good and affordable.
