The Sofitel is well situated in the centre of Lyon near the river. The hotel is very smart, the beds are wonderful and you are cocooned in their fantastic feather pillows and beautiful linen. You can actually buy the whole package ! Breakfast is very expensive at 26 euros each but is very good with stunning views over the city and river. It is easy, however, to find little bistros very close to the hotel. It is very close to the Rue Victor Hugo and the river and easy to walk to the old town from the hotel. It has underground car parking which is very useful. Rooms are air conditioned. Very helpful concierge etc. Beautiful luxury shops in the hotel including a stunning florist, hairdresser and designer clothing.

Room Tip: No need to pay the extra for river views if you chose a room i.e 606 which is on the side of the hot...

We stayed at the Sofitel Bellecour for two nights in July 2012.

Very good hotel, lovely staff and a great location just around the corner from Place Bellecour (don’t be fooled by the name – it’s not actually in the square itself). Our room was fine, not huge and maybe a bit dark (we were at the back so no view of the river) but classic Sofitel really, with good bedding, a nice bathroom and a complimentary mini-bar (of soft drinks) which was replenished daily. That was a treat!

Breakfast was very expensive but in a few minutes you can walk to a number of bakeries and cafes for a nice pain au chocolat. The reception foyer is quite modern and trendy and there’s a good bar and a few little boutiques on the ground floor too.

Overall, there was no particular wow factor but we certainly didn’t have any complaints either, and all the staff we encountered were excellent.

Stayed here for two nights on a sweltering August weekend. Great location near Bellecour metro, with lots of bars, shops, restaurants, etc, in easy reach. Well suited for business travellers as well as couples.

Our room was a bit outdated but everything worked well, with a fantastic bed and good (if a bit noisy) air conditioning. Free non-alcoholic drinks in the minibar were a nice touch.

It's a very nice hotel in a very central location. However we had to move 2 rooms at check in as the air conditioning wasn't working and even in the room where we eventually landed the air con was barely working so we just decided to stick to it. The bar on the 8th floor has really nice view and I appreciated orering cocktails through an iPad I was given to choose what I wanted to drink. Overall I've stayed in much better Sofitels but I'm not sure if you would find something better in terms of location and service in Lyon.
