We loved the lobby where the decor of the convent's chapel has been lovingly preserved, the helpful staff (the concierge got us the best table at wonderful restaurants), the views over Old Lyon, the warm jacuzzi even in the fall, the lovely cuisine in the restaurant and the great breakfasts eaten in our room. We liked less the steep climb,...

While the staff were excellent the building and the rooms were definitely not five star. It's a decaying "grand dame". Our junior suite was under ground, gloomy, dark, with no view and decaying walls. If you book make sure they guarantee your room has a view and natural light. Also make sure you are ok with a climb of 220...

I had long desired to stay here since first seeing it on a brief trip to Lyon some years ago. Its surprisingly easy to drive to given its location. The staff are attentive and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable if a little dated and in need of some refurbishment (a lot of tarnished gold fittings circa 1980's) Very quiet and...

We were in this hotel for a business meeting. The hotel room was ample and comfortable. Meals were very good, especially lunch and dinner. Great view over Lyon from the meeting room and restaurant. Walking distance to the historic center of Lyon. Only disadvantage is that some rooms are a little further away from the main building.

Excellent service from genuinely friendly staff with a welcome from the manager in person which was much appreciated. Super views from terraces; rooms and the breakfast area plus a decent sized outdoor pool with bar and loungers. The breakfast buffet choice was huge . The outdoor evening dining experience a real treat as the menu and food were of the...

We had 2 nights at Villa Florentine and we couldn't fault it. What an absolutely marvellous property it is. Our room was huge with a really comfortable large bed, large well-appointed bathroom, a desk and a coffee machine and lots of storage space. The hotel pool boasts fabulous views over Lyon and it was a haven on a hot afternoon...

I am writing this review based on the premise that Villa Florentine is rated as a 5-Star Chateaux and Relais rated hotel. Therefore standards are of high expectations. Overall the hotel can be described in one word - apathetic. I am not sure what the problem is, but from our arrival there seemed to be a sense of apathy among...

Beautiful views from centuries old buildings modernized for comfort and enjoyment. Exceptional staff. Lovely poolside dining with city views. A climb up hill from the center of old town, but worth the effort to us. Removed from the crowds but connected to the old areas.

Set atop Fourvière hillside in Vieux Lyon, Villa Florentine is a classy, sophisticated, modern hotel located in a 17th century building that was a monastery until relatively recently. In addition to the luxurious, spacious, and comfortable rooms, the hotel has a small fitness center, a gorgeous pool and jacuzzi overlooking the city, a sauna, and a Michelin-rated restaurant. At the...

Everything about the Villa Florentine is both one-of-kind and exceedingly beautiful. The architecture. The rooms. The outdoor pool and patios. But nothing compared to the happy smiles and enthusiastic service we received at the front desk. Its not cheap but it's a world class property without rock star prices. We loved Lyon. We loved the Villa Florentine. Let yourself go...
