We stayed for six nights and even before we set foot in the hotel I was impressed by the quality of service. I requested a room with a shower rather than a bath before we travelled as my husband is partially disabled and within an hour received a really friendly email back saying that it had been arranged. We were on the third floor in a beautifully designed room with a huge bathroom with a walk in shower. The king sized bed was comfortable and the flat screen HD TV was a treat. Breakfast was included in the price and there was a fabulous selection to chose from.
Every member of staff was professional, genuinely friendly and really helpful - nothing was too much trouble. They really are what makes this hotel such a joy to stay in.
The Carlton's location is perfect for exploring most places by foot and there are a number of buses that stop close by.
This really is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in and I am grateful to everyone that made it into a perfect holiday.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Be enchanted by the Carlton Lyon hotel, located on the peninsula. Despite being fully renovated in 2013, it has retained its authenticity and personality, blending contemporary comfort with sophistication. 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
