Our group of 25 stayed in Hotel Carlton in Lyon for one night. Since we arrived at around 7pm and left at 9am the next day, we did not spend enough time to provide a true evaluation. The hotel was in an old elegant building with a elevator form the past years. The room was not big but was adequate...

This is a lovely hotel with very helpful staff and great attitude. There some lessons you learn when booking with booking.com, check the room sizes on the hotels site. The room we booked was categorised as a “Cocoon” on the hotel site but there was no reference to this on booking.com. When we arrived, and discovered the size of the...

The Carlton Hotel is very well placed in Central Lyon, bang in the main shpping area on the peninsula and so provided welcome respite a few times after we'd hit the shops hard. The staff are very polite, spoke English and made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. We'd chosen a 'cocoon room to save costs but...

This is a boutique hotel in a great location. It really met all of our needs -- the bathroom was well-equipped, the beds were comfortable, it was quiet, the hotel provided us good information. The reason why I did not give it 5 stars was due to service. On two occasions, house-keeping opened up our door without waiting to hear...

Lyon was our first stop and our furthest point from Paris on a trip that included Burgundy and Champagne. Needless to say, I had driven myself crazy trying to pick the right hotel for our first nights away. I picked the Hotel Carlton and was very pleased. Our room was beautiful and spacious (we had a junior suite). The location...

We stayed here back in September and had a wonderful time. Staff were excellent and extremely helpful restaurant suggestions and reservations. Location of the hotel is easy to get to by car and the hotel offers valet service. It is located within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and attractions. Our room was small compared to what you get when staying...

Our hotel check-in and rooms were flawless. Perfect location to walk to everything. Great restaurant and pharmacy in same building. Where the Carlton shines through is with the staff!

I can’t say that we did not have a good stay, but when you display four stars, you put the expectations a little higher. For sure, if you look at the room size, the isolation against outside noise, the equipment in the room and bathroom, and the situation of the hotel (right in the town centre, in the middle of...

Charming hotel in a good location in central Lyon. Friendly staff, and the front desk personnel were particularly helpful. Excellent breakfasts, including eggs, sausages, cheese, fruit, bread, etc. One tip: showers are reasonably warm, but if you want hotter water, press the button on the cold water valve so you can turn it past the stop. Tricky!

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
