As a family we don't normally stay at five star hotels for city breaks, as we are rarely in the room and we won't again after this stay. The front of house provided excellent service, but we didn't find the reception or bar area welcoming at all. It didn't fell like a hotel, what with a Air France demonstration going... More

We had a wonderful stay here. Our room was large and had a beautiful view of the Rhone. We stayed in room 605. The room had every amenity. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location on the Presqu'ile was near so many things on foot. There was lots of shopping nearby, restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

my wife and I stayed overnight when travelling through France. We have stayed in several Sofitel's before and found that they do vary in standard. The position of the hotel was great, overlooking the Rhone, but the hotel needs an upgrade as the rooms were looking a bit tired and the facilities not up to modern standards. The AC was... More

I spent 5 days at the hotel while my daughter was on business. I fell in love with the walk in shower. The beds were comfortable and soft after a hard day of sightseeing. The maid service checked in made sure I had everything I needed and the fridge was well stocked with light refreshments. The one complaint I had... More

I stayed here one night for business. Check in and out was friendly and very fast. The room was very well equipped and comfortable. Even an espresso machine in the room. Very conveniently located in the old town and close to several nice restaurants.

My husband and I chose to stay in this hotel because we want a comfortable big bed, a clean room with some space and a nice hot shower. Yes, very American I must admit. Location was also important to us because we did not have a car. This hotel meets all of our criteria and the staff is attentive, friendly... More

I rang both last minute and the Sofitel to see if we could shift the booking,get a refund or at least get a partial voucher that we could use at a different time. The hotel... More
