Had 2 nights here. The hotel is very well situated on the Presqu'Isle of Lyon. We were spending most of our time in Accor hotels - so after the Mercures that are also in the group, this one is in a different class. The rooms were very nicely done, the bathroom was excellent (though just a shower, rather than a bath) and both the bedroom and bathroom overlooked the square. Service was good and breakfast was the best of our entire trip. The fit-out of the hotel is excellent as well. I would definitely stay here again. Only downside was that parking is Euro25 a day (even for part of a day,m I think) so our parking bill was Euro50, having arrived Mon evening and left Wed morning.

We can highly recommend this hotel. We spent 2 days in Lyon and one night at this hotel. We are a family of 4 and booked 2 rooms and they were both excellent.
The welcome at the hotel was warm and friendly, wonderful service throughout our stay, and lots of attention to detail.
Excellent location and being very central, we parked the car and walked everywhere.
Everyone who works at the hotel is so friendly and courteous, and nothing is too much trouble.
Rooms are very quiet and extremely clean, as are the bathrooms. We were all very happy with our stay.

Just renovated hotel right in the middle of everything. This is a typical boutique hotel that provides great service, attention to detail and a staff that is willing to provide you with any necessary assistance. The lift is a little jewel with a small bench that will be needed after your long walks. The rooms are all new, clean, smart and tiddy. The bathrooms are a good size with a great rain shower. Towels, robes and amenities all excellent as well as the bed and pillows. The rooms are QUIET which is what we mainly look for when travelling.The wi-fi is free, easy to load and works well. We were extremely happy with our stay. The only minor issue we had was the iron they provided. For this caliber they should spend a couple of more euros on a decent one.

Room Tip: The hotel does not have a restaurant but they work with one around the corner were you can order roo...

I can highly recommend this hotel. Our 1pm check in went smoothly. As a family of four traveling with two college age sons we booked two rooms. For us the room size was just fine. The room for the boys was listed as "cozy" but was good sized with the double beds. Our room was the next level up and while not that much bigger was beautifully decorated in rich reds with a very large bathroom. The large bed was soft and comfortable. Prices at the bar and for breakfast were very expensive and we avoided both. The location is in the middle of everything and right on the pedestrian shopping center.

Room Tip: Some room do overlook the square. Our side street room was not a noise problem but there is not a v...

We spent 3 nights here at the end of April, and were amazed by the quality of the hotel and service. The location is perfect, very central and an excellent base for exploring the city. The hotel has recently been renovated and looks brand new. The rooms were luxurious, large and very comfortable. The service was fantastic, all the staff were extremely helpful, and happy to do anything they could to make our stay more enjoyable. They were full of helpful ideas about what to do and where to eat. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Lyon.

Really lovely hotel with very professional and organised staff.

Room was a little small but very nicely furnished.

Hotel was in the middle of the town so ideally placed to explore the shops and the old town.

Would definately stay here next time.

Be enchanted by the Carlton Lyon hotel, located on the peninsula.

Relax in one of the 80 tastefully decorated rooms or in the cozy atmosphere of the bar. The hotel is just a 5-minute walk from the Bellecour metro stop and is the ideal base for exploring Lyon, with its opera house, museums, the St. Jean cathedral and more. Located between the Rhone and Saone rivers, the Carlton Lyon hotel was built in 1894 as a "petit palace" in Lyon. Punctuated by its forged iron balconies, dome and rotundas, its splendid Haussmann facade echoes the refinement of its historical decor. The hotel's "Signature" rooms also highlight artists who have stayed there. Travelers will appreciate immersing themselves in the splendid adornments of the many talents that have visited the hotel. ... more   less
