I stayed here one night on business. The staff was perfectly lovely at check-in and made sure I had a map of Lyon for my quick stay. Very small mishap on the day I departed - the front desk called my room at 7:30am to tell me my taxi arrived - but I never called one/it was for the wrong room! They apologized profusely, but it was a slight inconvenience. They have one small, old-fashioned elevator - which, while quaint, was briefly out of order during my stay (luckily after my suitcase was to my room!). Unfortunately my company's travel policy requires me to stay in the smallest room available, which is always an issue when I have to go anywhere in France! If you are more than one person, I would highly suggest booking at least a standard room. Despite the size of the bedroom, the bathroom was spacious and bright. It is about a 5 minute walk to Place Bellecour. Check out Rue Merciere, about a 5 minute walk, which is lined with restaurants - including those that are open on a Sunday night!
Cost from airport ~75 euros.
- 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
