We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is so central and so near great restaurant options! The staff is absolutely fantastic - so helpful, so charming, so professional. Our room was very quiet, very elegant, very comfortable. The bathroom was large, with a great tub to soak in! My only complaint was that the heat was on full blast...

Positives: Great location, great beds, very good breakfasts. The Yogurts, cheeses, butters are all of very high quality. Negative, smallish rooms. Traditional decor. We prefer modern/contempory so this old style was a bit of a let down. In balance very good place to stay. Located brilliantly, right in the centre of things. Lots of really good eating places and bars...

The hotel is situated right on Place Belle cour, which is a good location from which to discover Lyon on foot, althought the location in itself cannot be called charming (for this I would recommend La Cour des Loges). We booked a luxury room (nr 522) : - the room was really big, about 25-30 sqm with a separate toilet....

I had to find the file for the corporate booking on her desk for her and point out...

Location Hotel is located centrally at Bellecour (just above Bellecour metro) and is situated beside the "giant clock tower" (there is also a giant sign "Hotel Royal" but is visible only from the front angle).

Arrived in midst of riots with burning cars, looted stores, etc. But the hotel staff was professional, quickly secured my car and drove it to a safe garage. They gave us updates daily as to the strike and whether the trains were running. Pleasant and knowledgeable staff.

Our one-night stay at the Hotel Le Royal was wonderful. There was an insane amount of traffic in downtown Lyon but the hotel had us pull right in front, unload our luggage and then they parked our car for us in the garage (cheaper than the public garage) while we were able to settle in. The design of the hotel...

This is an excellent hotel situate on a large square in central Lyon-withih easy reach of all the attractions. Our circular room on the second floor overlooked the sqare and was well appointed. We had a splendid lunch in the restaurant run by The Institute Paul Bocuse.
