Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful in making local travel arrangements and so forth. Breakfast in the 8th floor restaurant each morning was a pleasure as we saw the sun rising over Lyon..spectacular views..as well as extensive... More

We've enjoyed our stay there! The service is perfect and friendly. The breakfast is sumptuous. The restaurant is a plus, much better than many hotel restaurants we know. Nice wine list. The rooms are clean and well equipped. The garage is a plus, here in the middle of the city. And from here there are many easy strolls through Lyon,... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights , the rooms were really nice and clean (with free mini bar) and location was really close to everything. The bus stop is just 1 min away which helped us move easily. The hotel also gives you a discount for the hop on hop off which was really great. سكننا في هذا... More

Very comfortable room, great shower, excellent breakfast with a view on the 8th floor, friendly charming staff. We walked everywhere from here and if we needed the Metro, it was only a few blocks away.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. We were impressed with the hotel. All the staff were very helpful! Room and bathroom was great. Bed was very comfortable. View of the river was lovely. Short walking distance to Lyons attraction and close to metro. We had no problems here. The restaurant manager was extremely nice and helpful.

The Sofitel offers a great location, along the river, a block from Place Bellencour and only an 11 euro cab ride from the central train station Part-Dieu. Most the major tourist sites are an easy walk from the hotel – Le Vieux Lyon, Fourviere, Place des Jocobins, restaurants, shopping, etc. The room was spacious, had comfortable beds, black-out shades, wifi,...

Good location, very close to Place Bellecour, shopping, cafes etc. Nice view of the river from our room. Room facilities were good; customer service was good. The staff were very efficient and responded quickly to any question/request we had. Decor/colour scheme in the rooms is a little outdated.

I stayed at this hotel only one night as I was only briefly in Lyon for the obligatory homage to Bocuse. The hotel is wonderfully quiet, with the usual beautiful Sofitel décor the colours in the ground floor areas are superb. Service is excellent and the beds are so comfortable that I am seriously considering installing one at home. Great... More

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times. Three rooms were booked, but only one could be found on the computer.After 10 minutes the other two rooms were eventually found. No real offer of an apology just blaming the computer. We had a quick drink in the bar on the top floor, which was a good experience. Breakfast was good, with... More
