“Tour if you can”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I had an opportunity to go to an event at the Hotel de Ville and it is as gorgeous inside as it is outside. I love the history and the attention to detail throughout this "city hall". So few places in America take the time and money to look like this. If you have a chance to tour the inside, you absolutely should.

“Gorgeous Building”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

This was well worth the walk in the rain. The building and plaza in front of it (including the fountain) are spectacular.

Lyon provides some great photo opportunities and this is one that you should take some time to explore what you can see as a photographer.

Reviewed 29 September 2013

Beautiful building which we enjoyed from the outside as part of our walk around this stunning city. Very close to Beaux Arts and the fountain in the square.
