“Innovative Spa Experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2013

The Hotel Lyon Metropole, created a very relaxing and innovative spa experience. We found a great deal on bookiing.com which allowed up a suite for 159Euros which included a 30 minute IYASHI spa treatment.

With these included treatments in the booking we made, there are 5 30min sessions you can choose from. The IYASHI room is a new sensory concept of resourcing and relaxation of the body and mind through water therapy. I personally went for the IAYSHI Dome, the better of the 5 treatments, which is a new Japanese technology where you lie in a Dome face down for 15mins then face up for the remainder wrap in natural heat.

The Dome acts as a natural detoxification and muscle relaxant, producing you sweat the equivalent on having run 13miles, burning about 1200 calories. I mainly got it for the detoxification effects to just sweat out the toxins and it worked, I felt so relaxed and revitalized after the treatment. Being a person that never sweats, it's definitely did the job.

The staff was extremely helpful and very aware when speaking with my French counterparts, that they didn't leave me out and translated in English. The suites were very nice, modern, high tech, clean and spacious, even for France.

Since many years as a group of tennis addicts, we travel to the Metropole to spend a long week-end. We enjoy the lovely hosting, great food and superb amenities, amongst other the tennis courts and variety of pools. It has become a must over the years and always remembered as a fantastic place. A quick hop nearby to the Villa Florentine for a dinner is the cherry on the cake...

We were there for one night. The staff was verf friendly. The room was good and the indoor swimmingpool was great. It has an easy bus connection to the centre. It is defenitly à hotel were we would stay again. During the summer they have à huge outdoor pool. Only one small remark and that is that the fruit with the breakfast was not all fresh. But having said, that is only à minor point.

Good location very close to the old town with extremely good and complete amenities package.
We're big sports and particularly tennis fans and here the facilities are fantastic.
Considering the price this was a very good choice.

Room Tip: call the hotel, but I felt that being on the pool-side was good a bit up

The hotel is reasonably priced, has an underground, safe parking. Some 3.5 km from Old Lyon, which is a nice area to go to have a fabulous Lyonnaise dinner (parking there also underground)
Bed is pretty good, self-service breakfast was included and had standard selection, also fruit. Shower could be more modern. Separate toilet room is a nice touch.
Brasserie nothing to write home about, but when tired and hungry fills you up OK.
Reception and breakfast personnel are comparatively friendly.

The hotel is just outside of the city and not suitable if you wish to quickly walk into the town. The hotel makes a clean and good impression, if you don't mind that it was originally build a few decades back. The hotel personnel is nice and competent. Unfortunately they have turned off the AC/heater in October, so that you have to open your window to get fresh air. Which I generally would prefer anyway but they have a lot of Miskitos which will make your good night sleep not possible. The food is only average which is for Lyon a real minus. The bathroom was renovated a couple of year back, with average quality and some design flaws. Whenever I took a shower the water leaked into half of the bathroom.

Dear traveller,

Thank you for choosing the Lyon Metropole while visiting Lyon.

I'm sorry to read of your quite disappointing stay with us !

All our food is freshly made by our chefs Georges Desriaux & Anthony Monnet, using the best ingredients. I'm sorry the food was not to your taste.

I hope that the memories you take home from Lyon are of the aspects of the hotel which you did enjoy.

Sincerely

There are some hotels which pose and boast too much but offer almost nothing and there are some like this one which quietly provide all the things a guest needs to make his stay comfortable. Metropole is one such place and finds high rating in my books. Well maintained rooms clean and tidy and had King sized Balinese bed, sleeping on these was very gratifying. Awesome swimming pool and recreational area, sauna, spa and Jacuzzi were magnificent and very refreshing indeed. Staff was intimate and polite and gave high quality services with absolute professionalism. Location of the hotel is not bad either, surroundings are quite and peaceful, overall wonderful place to stay and suited for all types of visitors.
