I was at the Sofitel with a group of customer's and booked over 100 nights. The service was bad. None of the customer's got a 5* service. Half the rooms are in a bad old condition but the price is same as all other rooms. The vallet service is extremely bad. Good thing internet is free and well located. The... More

The central location in Lyon places you near the train station and shopping areas but is a 20 to 25 min cab ride from the International Conf Hall space. The staff was very professional and everyone spoke both perfect French and English :) Breakfast on the roof top with a view of the river was great and our fav thing... More

This hotel is getting the facelift it obviously needed (based on some old reviews). Rooms are very good size when you go one up from basic. Levels 1 & 2 currently renovated so request a room on these levels , maybe book direct to ensure this? Breakfast is now top level in the restaurant, so fantastic view over the city.... More

Having arrived at the establishment we booked 2 suites at, with our tired (nearly) 2 year old at 1.50 pm, we were told that neither suite was ready, nor would both be ready until well after their nominated latest checkin of 2.00 pm No apology was offered, only an insincere half-grin. Just what we needed after a journey from Paris.... More

For a hotel of this priçe range, breakfast was poor. 24 euros was steep for this. Served in the rooftop dinîng room with magnificent views of Lyon. However the room is too small for the number of guests. The cooked brealfast consisted of four saucepans on a heater with tired-looking food in each. Are fresh mushrooms not available in Lyon...

... for this Sofitel Im sorry to say that I have to give less. Especially in comparison with other Sofitel houses, here e.g. the room was cozy, but some parts of the bathroom were simply chipped, the roomservice was not really up to standard (once really slow, once wrong order brought). All in all these are minimal things, and this... More

This is a well located hotel in the centre of Lyon making it possible to walk to many of the sites. The hotel itself is quite modern and has nice facilities and a well regarded restaurant on the top floor although I wasn't able to visit on this occasion. There is also a nice bar with really good views of... More
