I chose the hotel because of favorable reviews and it's location. The staff was really helpful and the location's view lived up to previous reviews. It seems that each room is unique in design and view. There are quite a few steps to reach the property, but we walked down to the city and used a taxi for our return...

Although we only stayed one evening at Villa Florentine, we were very impressed. The hotel is a converted monestary located on the hillside of old Lyon. Staff was very helpful. The hotel manager offered us a drink upon arrival and gave us a tour of the hotel. Our room was large, modern and beautiful. I would rate this hotel 4...

We stayed here one night on our way back from Reims to Geneva, and it was well worth the detour. The hotel has its own style (you have guessed right: that of a Florentine villa...) which some people will adore and others will find a bit overdone, but the location is superb and the staff and management are extremely warm...

We stayed here for 2 nights in between our journey from Paris to Provence. Our stay could not have been more enjoyable. I do not think you will find a better hotel in Lyon. The manager, Jerome, was truly one of the best I have ever come across (and I travel over 100 days a year). After some unpleasant experiences...

Apart from the shock of a charge of 25 euros for a glass of champagne in the bar and the restaurant my three night stay in this hotel was entirely memorable for the best of reasons. Staff were at all times charming and helpful and efficient with it. The breakfasts (in the same location as the restaurant) were excellent -...

We chose to stay in Lyon on a drive from Calais to Nice and chose the Villa Florentine because of its position in Old Lyon. The reception staff were very pleasant and showed us to our room (up two lifts ??). The room was on the back of the hotel, overlooked a road, but very nice with plenty of room....

We were very pleased with Villa Florentine. As suggested, we did not have breakfast at the hotel but outside. View from the terasse was amazing. We were there on the night before Bastille Day and the fireworks at night from the suburbs were neat - you could see about 15 different fireworks displays at the same time. We always walked...

Okay, it's a pretty place, with a good view (if you face the right direction), but the front desk clerks are surly and off-putting, to say the least. Our room was quite nice, but our friends ended up in the attic; a small, dark room that faced the street and a brick wall. The beds are comfortable enough (kings are...

Reviewed 16 April 2007

I was very impressed by the physical plant, ie the hardware. Its conversion from an 18th century nunnery to an elegant boutique hotel in the early 90's was done with great taste and flair. However, general levels of service were inconsistent during my stay. Apart from a very friendly and accommodating voiturier/bagagiste (valet/bell man), the other staff (receptionists, restaurant wait...
