“Highly reccomended!!!”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Really a fantastic hotel and a fantastic staff. All was arranged in the best possible way: the check in, the valet parking, the restaurants booking, etc.
If we come to Lyon again we will definitely chose this hotel again.

Hotel we feel closer to a 4 star and forgive us for the French, who considered as something special antique! We prefer modern hotel that has hot water running in the bathroom! Bit bigger lobby, breakfast price is reasonable and not 21 euros.
But, the hotel is in the heart of the city and good location, hotel staff excellent and very professional! Thanks to the wonderful staff at the hotel our stay was pleasant.
Thank you

Room Tip: we were in deluxe room and he was big!it is importent in france!

The hotel is perfectly located in Lyon's centre, close to great shopping streets and many restaurants. As it was recommended to pre-book car parking, we did so and it turned out to have been a very good tip - there is very limited stopping (let alone parking) space in front of the hotel. Also the other services were good, and staff was friendly and helpful.
Maybe we were simply unlucky, as some reviewers were very happy with their rooms, but the two Superior Royale double rooms we saw were not 5 star standard. The first room we were shown was on the 5th floor and had quite a low ceiling. The bathroom there was not very clean and run down, the toilet seat was even cracked! The second room was just beneath on the 4th floor, with only slightly better bathroom, and odd scratch marks on the wall in the entrance area. We didn't expect a very big room, but for 5 stars we would have expected slightly better standard.
For breakfast, we treated ourselves to the 5€ more expensive Sofitel breakfast just a short walk away. It was a perfect breakfast buffet, and the view from the top-floor restaurant in the Sofitel was definitely worth the little extra.

I almost get emotional if I think back at my stay in Lyon: perfect weekend and wonderful hotel!
Super well located, very nicely decorated, very nice room and gorgeous breakfast. We loved the Jazzy lounge as well!
The Hotel is a great miix between a grand Hotel (old building with old details) and a modern one (renovated bathrooms and great beds).
The breakfast is very expensive: but sooo worth it!
I hope I'll go back soon!

I can't fault the place, really and delivered far more than it's advertisement. It is right in the middle of town overlooking the beautiful Place Bellecours in that thin isthmus between the Saone and Rhone Rivers. The next street over is a shoppers delight of old antique stores, galleries and clothes shops (thankfully free of the big international brands) The hotel has been renovated to a high standard and the staff are delightfully friendly and efficient. The rooms are well appointed and fresh - bed very comfortable with pillows and duvets which you can disappear into. Breakfast was a treat - far above the usual fare. And as a small bonus the hotel is a training ground for the Paul Bocuse Institution.

Stayed here for 4 nights in November whle working at a trade show in Lyon. Overall it was good but i didnt find many aspects very good. Check-in was prompt and was always staffed and they and the concierge could answer most questions (in English) but when i asked them to recommend a good restaurant near the hotel i was told there were many and to take my pick? My bedroom was small with no view but a colleage had a large room with a view of Place Bellacour so when you book or when you check in ask for a bigger room overlooking Bellacour.

Lyon is a lovelly city and there really are many good restaurants to choose from. If you exit the hotel to the right then cross to the left you will find a whole street of restaurants.

I nearly gave this hotel 4 stars and would have had it not been for the small bedroom.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Place Bellacour are better.

The hotel is well appointed and elegantly decorated in french style as attested to by many other reviewers. The location right on the corner of Place Bellecour is ideal and service from all of the staff was first class, friendly, helpful and they genuinely seemed to want guests to enjoy the hotel and the delights of Lyon.
The only minor criticism regards suite 502. I do not know if all the suites are the same but there is no door between the bedroom and the sitting room (despite the door frame being in place and clearly a door was once there) . Consequently if you were to hold business meetings in this suite you cannot shut off the bedroom or if say 3 people are sharing you cannot have any privacy despite the suite having 2 good separate bathrooms.
