The hotel is very clean and the staff are very helpful and lovely. I stayed in the room with the balcony overlooking the center of Clermont. It's in the best location for the bars, shops and tourist destinations. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to visit. I wouldn't stay anywhere else now! I will be coming back... More

Very pleasant, modern hotel, right on the main square. Rooms are spacious and clean, WiFi works, etc. There's a elevator, which stops between, rather than on, floors; works well enough, but you do have to lug a suitcase either up or down half a flight. We were happy to have a room overlooking the square, since the view was great.... More

The hotel is clean and modern, but in a classic older bulding in central Clermont Ferrand. We had a top floor room overlooking the Place de Jaude. The room was lovely and the city noise was not obtrusive. All the staff we met in the hotel were pretty young and we were impressed by how hard working, polite and efficient... More

Place Jaude is the heart of Clermont-Ferrand - as central as you want to be to explore the main attractions in Clermont-Ferrand without needing to drive. Hotel Le Lion is in the heart of Place Jaude and its location is quite unbeatable with tram and bus stops literally in front of the entrance. The hotel underwent a major redesign and... More

Stayed here whilst travelling around Europe on a motorbike. The room was very comfortable and very clean with good facilities. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. But for anyone staying here do look carefully at the car parking situation. We arrived early evening and could not leave our bikes near the hotel - the road in front of the hotel... More

The only reservations we had about Hotel Le Lion were the noise because it is situated right on Place De Jaude, a large square in the centre of town. On arrival though our fears disappeared because the rooms are well soundproofed, and during the night we heard nothing from outside at all. The hotel is an old building, but the... More

We had never stayed in Clermont-Ferrand but wanted to break a rather long journey from Drome-Provence back to our house in La Vienne and chose the Hotel Le Lion. We booked on-line. It was really great to discover that not only was the hotel centrally located but also that there was subsidised parking available in the large underground car park... More

This hotel is exactly on the Place Jaude. The parking is really convenient and when you come up from either the stairs or the elevator, the hotel is in front of you. The rooms are clean and spacious. The bathrooms are clean and modern fixtures. You won't find a better value!

The new decor of the hotel is fantastic - we were on the first floor facing onto the square and it was really really nice. The bar downstairs was open late after we have been for dinner and served great drinks! The view of the square was really nice and bustling with people. Trying to get to the hotel was... More
