“Very nice property in center of town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

Very nice property, room was very nice, bathroom esp. large by European standards. Location is excellent - right on Place Bellecour, about equal distance between the rivers and a close walk to many eating/shopping places. Metro is right there as well. Only drawback of the location is noise - our room faced the Plaza, which was nice, but with unseasonably warm weather when we were there we had the windows open to cool the room and it was a bit noisy. Staff was helpful and took care of a couple of things for us right away.

We were booked for three nights at the Le Royal on our first leg of our 10 days tour of France. When we arrived we were pleased with the location of the hotel in relation to the various sightseeing spots in Lyon. The hotel itself was also well keep up and managed even with their restaurant under renovation. Unfortunately we were not assigned an outside room overlooking the square, Place Bellecour. However the room was comfortable and relatively quiet.

Throughout our stay, we were greatly assisted by the hotel staff from giving direction to various sightseeing attractions. The detail of their information and direction to maximize our enjoyment was most impressive. They also assist us to locate various speciality shops around the hotel for our shopping need.

We thoroughly enjoy the Hotel Le Royal Lyon and definitely will come back in our next visit. Yes, we shall request a room with better view.

We loved the hotel! Room was excellent, roomy and every single detailed was taken care of. from the welcome letter, chocolate confections every night, etc. Location is very convenient, staff was always very attentive and the breakfast room is to die for. Decor is very french but still modern.

Room Tip: We preferred a room with street wiew.

As everybody else has said, great location for all the sites and for the transport system. We arrived mid-afternoon and our room was not ready, so we were offered a couple of beers while the room was prepared - there was no need to do this as we were going to the bar opposite anyway. Service for the rest of the trip was just as good with tips on travel, etc.

Given the central location and having a room on the front, there were no issues with the noise and sp

I would have no issues in recommending Le Royal to anyone

We had been wine buying in the Rhone last week and rather driving straight back to Switzerland we thought we'd spend the day and an overnight stay in Lyon,a City we've driven past dozens of times.We booked over the phone,told them our terrier was extremely well behaved and we needed secure parking for our car,which was laden with fabulous wine.
When we arrived we were greeted by two extremely friendly guys from the Concierge desk who carried in our bags and parked our car whilst we checked in.The room wasn't ready but they assured us when we came back after lunch,we've always wanted to try one of Lyon's 'Bouchon's',we would be shown directly to our room.
In fact they had upgraded us to a 2 bathroom suite (one bathroom better than the other),but everything else was of good quality with an extremely comfortable superking bed with a great view of 'Place Bellecour'.The only slight niggle was that when we asked for recommendations for dinner they tended to recommend restaurants that the hotel are associated with.
We asked them to book 'Daniel & Denise' in St Jean for dinner which for high quality food in a relaxed setting is probably unbeatable (left 30Euro tip)!!

Room Tip: We had a room on top floor (4/5th),great views of the square,therefore no traffic noise).

Hotel Le Royal has the best location available for tourists in Lyon. There is a subway station right in front of it, and many attractions can be reached by walking less than 30 minutes.

Our room had view to the square - beautiful - and even so, no noise or inconvenient lights entered our room. Spacious, clean and well decorated. Breakfast was a special event... the setting (designed by Paul Bocuse) really makes you feel at home, but being supported by a great staff of waitresses and cooks that make your first meal of the day a joy.

They have a parking area at a reasonable cost, and you really do not need the car there.

here is why - location, warmth, helpful tips, great rooms. we were a family of four, and were recommended this place by a friend. Honestly, it was confusing to read the reviews, and we were tempted to try the usual international brands. Better sense prevailed and we booked here. We were swept away by the warm reception, and quick transfer to the room. When we asked for a tip for a nearby restaurant, it could not have been better. We then made it a habit and were never disappointed. On the last day, we further exerted to check our luck. We wanted to hold the rooms a bit longer, as our flight was much later. A quick check and a "no fuss" extension given. Europe has many times puzzled us with their hospitality, as we do get spoiled in Asia. This place is no puzzle. They genuinely care and want you to enjoy your stay. We will be back - someday!

Room Tip: square facing rooms are the best
