This hotel takes up most of a Block in Central Lyon and is very well situated on the Presque'ile. It was originally built maybe a 100 years or so ago and whilst inside has now been thoroughly modernised there are touches in the rooms and throughout the hotel (check out the amazing lift) which retain their original character and are...

The Carlton is a wonderfully classy boutique hotel overlooking the place de republique. My wife loves the location in the heart of Presqu'ile. We stayed for a week and were given a wonderfully spacious room. It was very clean and the comfortable bed provided a sound night's sleep. A lovely breakfast is available, and the beautiful bar on the ground...

Excellent hotel in overall, helpful staffs. Nice & quiet rooms with open able window in both bedroom & bath. Nice beds & comfortable. But location of safety box right on top of the refrigerator is badly located. The interior of safety box was 'very warm' in our room. I believed the temperature could damaged jewellery, watches and other valuables. Also...

Colton was a super friendly hotel great bar great restaurant in the hotel on the corner but best of all great location walking distance to Old Town and literally hundreds of restaurants we even walk to the Roman ruins. We also rented bikes and biked on the Riverwalk which was very modern and easily accessible

The hotel is perfectly located near a pedestrian street where you can have a nice walk around the shops. The vieux lyon (the most beautiful part of Lyon) is at walking distance from the hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Be enchanted by the Carlton Lyon hotel, located on the peninsula. Despite being fully renovated in 2013, it has retained its authenticity and personality, blending contemporary comfort with sophistication. Relax in one of the 80 tastefully decorated rooms, in the wellness center or in the cozy atmosphere of the bar. The hotel is just a 5-minute walk from the Bellecour metro stop and is the ideal base for exploring Lyon, with its opera house, museums, the St. Jean cathedral and more.StoryLocated between the Rhone and Saone rivers, the Carlton Lyon hotel was built in 1894 as a "petit palace" in Lyons. Punctuated by its forged iron balconies, dome and rotundas, its splendid Haussmann facade echoes the refinement of its historical decor.The hotel's "Signature" rooms also highlight artists who have stayed there. Travelers will appreciate immersing themselves in the splendid adornments of the many talents that have visited the hotel. ... more   less
