We spent a night at the hotel during our weekend trip to Lyon and i am glad we choose it. The hotel is really centrally located and the staff is friendly and helpful. Spacious, clean rooms and comfortable bed. It would be great though to add some alcohol in the mini bar, cause there was only soft drinks and water....

First impression: sewer gas smell outside hotel, 12-18 inch step up without any ramp access to roll a bag up and no doorman to help with bags... all this was very off-putting. Front desk area looked charming but as another reviewer put it.. staff was "icy" to put it nicely. Had asked for a room with shower over 4 weeks...

A beautiful hotel with excellent service, a very helpful staff and a Paul Bocuse restaurant school on the property. The concierges were very helpful advising where to go and in restaurant choices. They are very knowledgeable as to Lyon area.

We spent 2 nights in this old building hotel. We loved the atmosphere and the detailed interior design. The staff was very helpful and attentive and the room was clean and cozy. The hotel is located on Place Bellecour, in the center, and it's super easy to get anywhere from here. We loved it!

Our stay at the Hotel was very short (1 day) but it is worth noting: (1) the location is very good, steps from good shopping streets and only a few blocks from the old center (2) the concierge was extremely agile and gentle (3) the dining room is very charming, served by students of the Hospitality Institute of Bocuse. Unfortunately,...
