3 nights stay, very comfortable, superb feather beds and excellent sound insulation. Central location within a walk away from restaurants and shopping. DIdn't try breakfast at 26 euros which I find hard to swallow. 26E for a coffee and a croissant.!The staff were very pleasant and prompt service when we had a problem with the in room safe. Strange design...

This hotel is located in the heart of Lyon and is very difficult to find. The streets are all one way and if you miss the hotel, you must circle around the block through traffic that is busy at all hours of the daytime. Avoiding pedestrians and taxi’s that drive somewhat chaotically is a challenge. Once you arrive, the hotel...

This is a large modern building overlooking the river. The entrance is rather odd with an Egyptian/Greek affect and very dim public spaces and bars. The bedrooms are terrific with clean lines, crisp modern decor and unfussy. Excellent bathrooms with superb detailing. The beds are very good indeed, spacious and comfortable.They are known as mybeds and you can buy the...

This hotel was very nice, with the nicest bathroom ever--huge teakwood shower stall with a bench and both handheld and overhead showerheads and natural light through a window into the bedroom. The decor was modern and chic. The bed was topped with a featherbed; if you're not used to them, it's not that comfortable (I prefer a firmer surface). The...

You can't be too picky with a 4-star hotel. It just has to be good, and this stay at the Sofitel Lyon was just that. No negatives. The location, on the banks of the Rhone and about 2 minutes' walk from the Place Bellecour can't be beaten. The room is a typical Sofitel room, very comfortable bed... cloud-beds we call...

We were very impressed with the atitude of the staff and the overall standard of the hotel. This is obviously very much a business hotel but as we were staying during the weekend we were offered a very reasonable upgrade. We dined in the Three Domes restaurant which was a wonderful experience both for the food and the views from...

Just returned from my first trip to Lyon, where we spent 2 nights at the Sofitel. My husband travels regularly to Lyon for business and has stayed in many hotels in the city. This property is, by far, his most preferred. Upon our arrival, we were greeted at our taxi by the bellman, who, after taking our luggage, politely spoke...

I had the privilege of visiting Lyon on a business trip. I very much enjoyed my stay and the hotel was just perfect. The people were friendly and helpful. Since I do not speak French they went as far as reading the menu for me. I loved the location. I could walk through the old town section of the city...
