I really enjoyed my stay here. The location is perfect, right in the centre of the city with good transport links. The decor is old and quite charming. The staff on the front desk were very helpful giving me restaurant advice and suggestions for public transport. The room was quite warm, but with the windows open there was a good... More

Centrally located in the heart of old town Lyon and a short walk from the railway station and Europa car rental. Breakfast was great, staff was helpful and wonderful. I can heartily recommend this as the place to stay in Lyon.

The Globe and Cecil is an old charming hotel in the heart of Lyon. The front desk very generously upgraded me to a double room which was spacious and comfortable. The location is absolutely perfect for shopping and restaurants, and yet on a quiet street for a good night of sleep. Like most older hotels, some elements of the room... More

Charming, quaint, comfortable, friendly staff, very well located. Quite good room, comfy bed, but lacked minibar, and wifi connectivity not always reliable. Also the cooling was ineffective in the heat.

Stayed in this hotel for nine nights in a single room. While it was cramped at times it was adequate for what I needed and not too expensive. I suppose the breakfast price of €18 per day was what you would expect in a hotel but it seemed a little excessive for a continental breakfast. While the location was good... More

The best thing of this hotel is its location: near metro, near attractions, you can go pretty much everywhere walking. The river is about 5 min walk, and another 5 min you cross the bridge and you're by the funicular station (cable car that takes you up the mountain). Hotel close to main shopping area of Lyon so if you're... More

We decided to stay here on a drive from Zermatt back to Spain. We found it through the Chateaux & Hotels guide. The hotel has a good location, and close to an underground public parking lot, but as many of the reviews say, the rooms weren't as wonderful as we thought they would be. It is a beautiful old building,... More

We assumed we would love this hotel, it had come well recommended. But from the time we arrived late on a Sunday afternoon, our impressions were primarily negative. There was only one person at the desk who did nothing to welcome us. She handed us our key and pointed to the elevator. We asked some questions about breakfast but she... More
