Sofitel Lyon Bellecour
Ranked #30 of 194 Hotels in Lyon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 July 2013 via mobile

The hotel is in a good location,in the center of the city,near the river.
Our room was totally clean and comfortable,with amazing beds and an extraordinary bathroom.
The breakfast time was my favorite,as there was a good variety of food and a marvelous view of the city.
At last the employees were kind and helpful and I was provided with every service a five-star hotel can offer.
If you can afford it,I totally recommend it.

My adult daughter and I shared a very comfortable room of moderate size in this upscale hotel on the Rhone. Absolutely everything was top-notch even though it was a bit lacking in French "character." The cleanliness, the service, the restaurants, the bar -- all was impeccable.

We arrived at Sofitel Lyon for a short stay of three nights during vacation. The hotel follow the expected standards from the Sofitel brand.
Well located, in front of the rhone river, just steps from city center. Luxury, clean, staff very attentions! Would be back and recommend.

Overall a very good hotel in a great location. It doesn't have the charachter of a boutique hotel perhaps, but the service goes a way towards making up for that!

The rooms are fairly spacious and generally have decent amenities.

The rooftop bar is probably the best thing about the hotel - with a stunning view of the Rhone the only downside being that they have a very limited selection of wines. The bistro is also decent with a better selection of wines than the bar, but service can be a little slow.

If you want a charming hotel in the old town this isn't it, but as far as a chain hotel in a convenient location goes this is good.

Returning after 4 years to this hotel and this was really good.
The hotel has been totally renovated and the rooms are a lot better with everything you need.
Staffs are excellent, very friendly, the bar at the top has a beautiful view, the car park of the hotel is perfect for city centre.
Great position and walking distance from main places or restaurant.
Definitely recommended

Room Tip: Great view of the river from front room

12 years ago we stopped by Sofitel Bellecour looking for directions to our hotel in Lyon. When we got to our hotel and found it to be terrible in a bad part of town, we went back to Bellecour and booked a room. We ate at their restaurant, Les 3 Domes. It was a great experience and we always promised ourselves we would return one day.
