What a wonderful experience. This Renaissance period hotel is beautifully decorated with all of the quirky 16th Century architectural features including spiral staircases, arches and internal courtyards. There is a lift for those who remain in the 21st Century but we enjoyed using the stairs for that Renaissance feel. Standing on one of the close cobblestone streets of Vieux Lyon, it couldn't be better located to enjoy the many cafes, bars, restaurants, ruins and museums of this lovely city.
We stayed for 8 nights in mid to later July. Our Concierge, Gerard, made many wonderful suggestions and bookings on our behalf, keeping us as busy as we wanted to be and we enjoyed doing every one of them. While Gerard appears to be helping guests all of the time, of course he must go home at some time, and our Concierge, Francois, was available to save the day after our solitary bad food experience elsewhere in Lyon by obtaining an immediate booking at a delightful very busy 3rd generation Italian restaurant. All of the staff at Coeur des Loges are particularly attentive but Gerard, Francois and Yann (who assisted us in our journey through the various whiskeys available at the bar) are particularly memorable.
On a more practical note, the beds are extremely comfortable, the rooms are totally silent for a good night's sleep and the quality of the food available at breakfast is outstanding (though, it is as difficult to get a nice cup of strong breakfast tea here as it is in the rest of France).
I truly enjoyed the delightful experience of staying here.
