We stayed at the Sofitel Hotel in Lyon, Bellecour, for 3 nights in Sept.2009. The hotel was centrally located directly on the Rhone river, near the tourist office and public transportation. The room was large, and well equipped, however there was an opaque window between the bedroom and the bathroom so when I used the bath, my companion complained about the light.
The buffet breakfast was reasonably good and it was served in the coffee shop. During our stay the 8th floor fancy restaurant was under renovations, so we had dinner in the coffee shop, at reasonable prices. The plat du jour with dessert was only 17 euros.
Their business center was closed so no internet.
All in all for the price we paid, 621 euros for 3 nights bed & breakfast the hotel was reasonable.
We recommend purchase of the Lyon City Pass which gave unlimited travel on all public transportation, and free admission to most museums. we recovered the cost the first day, even with a sporadic transit strike.
The airport bus costing 9 euros per person went right by the hootel, and had I known, I would have asked the driver to stop, but he was in the outer lane and because of traffic it was not posible.
