“Sumptuous Room, Stunning View and Attentive Staff”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

So what more can I say. My husband and I visited Hotel Carlton in Lyon a few days ago. We stayed only two nights and would have loved to stay longer but our itinerary did not allow. First of all Lyon is a gorgeous city full of beautiful white and cream buildings, with floor to ceiling windows and lovely wrought iron balconies. The Hotel Carlton Lyon is located adjacent to Place de la République and its quaint early 20th century carousel. Our room was spacious, attractively decorated and well equipped. Free wifi was included as was breakfast in the room price. The staff were incredibly helpful. A highlight was the stunning old fashioned elevator - a real treat. We thoroughly recommend the Hotel Carlton in Lyon.

The Carlton is in a very convenient location for exploring Lyon, as well as being 5-10 mins walk from 2 metro stations.
We had a standard room on the first floor : comfortable bed, tall windows, big TV, not much space otherwise. The bathroom was modern and a good size.
I have 2 minor complaints : one is that there was no chest of drawers in the bedroom, only two (high) shelves in the hanging cupboard. The other is that there should be somewhere in the bathroom to put one's toiletry kit: there was only a two-shelf round table, which was full of towels and bathroom products.
Otherwise a comfortable stay with pleasant, helpful staff.

Room Tip: If you'd like a room with a view, ask for one around the front of the hotel facing the carrousel...

We stayed here for 2 nights in July. We had two rooms next to each other . The rooms are tasteful and well set out with new and stylish furnishings. The beds are the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever stayed in.

The hotel is beautifully renovated and maintains an old style character. It is fantastically located and you can walk everywhere. Despite the central location it is very quiet at night.

The breakfast was good with a wide range of choices. All hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Carlton Hotel for 3 nights in July 2014 and had an overall good stay. We stayed in the Cozy room (18sq.m) on the second floor which is small but average size for hotels in France. The room was well decorated, the bedding was comfortable and the bathroom was stocked with enough amenities. But be ware that the toilet is not in the bathroom but separated across from the bathroom door. One thing I don't like about the room is the full length mirror is in the small closet next to the window which is very inconvenient when you are going out. With the size of the room having a full length mirror in the hallway should help but there were non. The front desk staff was helpful with all the restaurant recommendations and getting taxis for us. I really liked the elevator, which was built in the 1930s. The hotel is centrally located for us to walk everywhere, not too far from the old town, the restaurants and shops. I highly recommend this hotel for first timers to Lyon.

I stayed at this hotel for business and also leisure. It is a lovely hotel, very inviting and very friendly staff. It is central in Lyon and perfect for shops, restaurants.

The hotel room was fabulous and extremely clean and the bed was one of the best I have slept in. The decor is lovely and it feels quite special. There is a mini bar in the room and a nice coffee machine.

The bar is small and trendy and the bar staff (Christian) was very friendly and helped us to chose a couple of very nice wines.

The lift in the hotel is quite special and very ornate.

The hotel does not have a restaurant in the hotel for dinner, but there is a restaurant next door to the hotel that seems to partner with the hotel. Breakfast is provided at the hotel and is mostly continental but with lots of choice and the staff are very efficient and friendly.

I would definitely stay here again when visiting Lyon.

I stayed 2 nights in the hotel. I was assigned a very quiet room at the end of the hallway on the first floor. The room was obviously freshly renovated and had a large bedroom as well as a large bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom design was modern and included deep-tub and shower. The breakfast room was on the same floor as my room - very convenient. Breakfast included hot and cold food. The very attentive staff also asked if I wanted and omelette. Here, you do not have a choice of adding mushrooms, paprika or ham. Your only choice is 'naturelle', which was fine. So all in all, a very pleasant experience.
