Disappointing experience at a hotel of this class The Room was nice with a view to the Rhone, and we had booked a SPA-Experience as well. After the SPA we took a shower before we went to the Gourmet Restaurant “Les Trois Dômes”. We were very disappointed to discover that our room had NOT been prepared for the night, and... More

I don't think this hotel should be 5 star - 4 maybe. €80 from airport in taxi!! Good location and nice views of the river. Hotel bar on top floor also has nice views. Good location to explore the city. Rooms large and comfortable. Free soft drink minibar.

Lyon os certainly worth a visit and when you do The Sofitel Bellecour is an excellent place to stay. It 's location is practical, the staff is very friendly and the beds are great. In the evening have a drink at the bar and enjoy the view. The same goes for having your excellent breakfast at the 8th floor!

When I was planning my first ever visit to Lyon, my local business host recommended Sofitel Lyon Bellecour. I stayed for 2 nights, and it was indeed a very good and comfortable stay. The location is very central, being a few minutes walk from Bellecour, which is the heart of Lyon. Bellecour also provides easy access by public transport to... More

We arrived early and they found us a room. We had a great river view in a very modern new updated room. The bed was amazing very comfortable! The free drinks in the fridge were a nice touch.
