Excellent hotel located in the heart of Lyon and close to everything. Superb staff, very friendly and helpful with anything. Loved Lyon and the Carlton has kept it's charm after it's renovation. Would absolutely stay here again. Loved it!

Stayed July 2014

This hotel is extremely well run with very friendly and professional staff. That would be my main observation tho other aspects of it were also good such as the location, rooms and character. On arrival, the receptionist recommended a superb gluten free restaurant for lunch which was just brilliant.

Room Tip: We paid extra for one of the Superior doubles, it was very nice.

From the helpful reception (advice in English for navigating the city, dinner reservations, museum hours checking, calling a cab) to beautifully appointed spacious rooms to an attractive lounge -- not to mention a perfect location for walking the city -- this is a great choice. Reasonable rates available on Priceline, too!

Room Tip: Since all rooms are excellent and desk personnel are helpful with changing bed types if available, I...

This a very beautiful and charming boutique hotel in Lyon with a fabulous staff. My lovely room was pristine and their coffee (room service) was the best I have ever tasted! I also found this to be a fabulous location for trains, museums, shopping and restaurants.

This is a beautiful late 18th century hotel with a lot of character while still being quite luxurious. Operated by Accor Hotels as an MGallery product, I thought the quality was closer to their Sofitel product. This French chain really trains its staff well, and the front desk staff were a significant part of my high rating. The room was nicely decorated, had great lighting for reading and a well thought out bathroom with room for everything. The location couldn't have been more central, located on the peninsula, but outside the noisy old town. To top it off, it was very reasonable. Our room was 180 EUR per night.

Room Tip: The "cozy" rooms are nearly 200 SF, fairly generous by French standards. I am guessing tha...

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.
