The Sofitel brand is for me a guarantee for a good night's sleep in a well designed room with a very comfortable bed, good pillows, a good shower and exceptional customer service. As far as the quality of sleep is concerned Sofitel Lyon Bellecour did live up to this expectation while the price paid was reasonable and the location was... More

Don't be mislead by the outside, inside is lovely, room very comfortable. They have a bar on the eighth floor with fabulous views over the la saone river. Excellent location, easy walking to lots of great restaurants and bars - and monuments.

We chose Sofitel because of its location and we weren't disappointed. You can explore most of the sights from the hotel on foot and for those further flung places you are just a few minutes away from several tube entrances. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and welcoming and the lobby always smells fantastic thanks to a little... More

I have stayed in Sofitels before and the beds are always gloriously comfortable. This one was no exception - we paid an upgrade for a king bed that was simply enormous, almost too big for the room which wasn't large, but it was adequate with a good large shower and a coffee pod machine (no tea though). It wasn't a... More

Good location to explore Lyon on foot. Nice comfortable rooms. 8th floor bar is nice, good view of Lyon with the Alps in the distance. Bar is very expensive though. Our second visit, we will return...

I stayed here for four nights in April, having experienced several other hotels in the same chain. This hotel was a severe disappointment. The room, on the sixth floor, was in great need of renovation, with some broken furniture, an incredibly uncomfortable armchair and an unpleasant smell of old tobacco. One day the room had not been serviced by 6pm!... More

Pros: - very convenient location (about 14 euros cab from Lyon Part Dieu train station, 10mn) - nice view from rooftop bar - friendly service Cons: - common areas (lobby, restaurants, spa) have been refurbished in 2009 but the rooms have been renovated only up to the 3rd floor so basically, if you are in the upper floors you end...

I was in the hotel for just one night but loved the attitude. The people were super efficient and friendly. All the soft drinks in the minibar were complimentary. Location of the hotel can't be better. Large rooms good bathrooms. Yes if you want to nitpick, sighns of just a little aging.

We booked three rooms at this hotel, 1 junior suite and 2 standard rooms. I'll keep this review short and say hotel was ok, staff where friendly and helpful. However rooms felt slightly dated, and the AC did not work well. Standard rooms are very small, at about 28sq.m junior suite better at just under 50. Bed in standard room... More
