Just a note to say that this time the penthouse restaurant & bar were being renovated, more's the pity.

Fantastic Sofitel beds as ever, views on the Rhône river and a very friendly barman to pour the champagne.

Attentive service

Downside: Breakfast simply too expensive and wifi not free, there's no excuse for that and it's the only real downer.

City centre location, private car park... Just great

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.

Great location near shopping district in Lyon. Convenient to major highways and attractions. We used this hotel as a one-night stopover on the way to Avignon. Service and reception was very friendly and helpful.

This hotel is very expensive, but does have one abiding virtue - the restaurant and bar offer great views of the city from the top floor. My family (5 people) visited last year, but my eldest son was in Borneo so unable to come with us. Booked again this year while travelling through, but despite explaining the purpose of the trip during the telephone booking, I was not told that the upper floors were closed for refurbishment, which made the whole purpose of the booking redundant. Despite confirming no smoking rooms at booking we were then shown into a room which stank of smoke (the hotel did change the room). The rooms are small and pokey. Tried to explain to the Manageress - not interested. Give it a miss

We chose the Sofitel in Lyon to start our weektravelling down the Rhone and were very glad we did. The hotel is in a great location on the banks of the Rhone just two minutes fronm the main shopping area and five minutes walk from the old town. There are at least twenty places to eat in the area but the Silk brasserie in the hotel can hold it's own. We had a great meal there on Sunday night when many Lyon restaurants are closed.
The Trois Domes restaurant however was very pricey indeed (70 euros for a steak!) so we found other places outside the hotel.
The rooms are spacious, well decorated with a lovely bathroom and Hermes toiletries.
There was a complimentary bottle of Evian each day which was a nice touch.
The staff were very helpful and service was great.
We like the hotel so much we ended our week here as well..
