We stopped over for only 1 night whilst travelling through France on our way to Annecy and had no expectations at all other than a decent room, bed, bathroom and secure parking in the center of Lyon. Well we were blown away and the hotel far exceeded any of our expectations! The hotel may not be much of a looker on the outside as it's a fairly hideous 1970's square building, but it's undergoing a huge internal refurb and it's stunning inside. The meet & greet, valet & check-in were all flawlessly done with the utmost professionalism and friendliness, a huge and welcome surprise after our experience the previous night in Troyes! The bedroom (number 122) was new, fresh, with a very comfortable super king bed and all modern mod-cons such as a Nespresso machine, iPod speaker and free WiFi. the bathroom is also very large and nice, though from a ladies perspective it could do with some brighter lights. The breakfast the next morning was served in their rooftop restaurant with panoramic views over Lyon and the river, in fact it would be the perfect place fro a lovely lunch or romantic dinner as well. The copious breakfast was every gastronome's dream with lots of local delicacies on offer.
We also fell in love Le Vieux Lyon and are already planning our next return to this grande dame of a city!
