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 Decor/colour scheme in the rooms is a little outdated.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

From the breakfasts in the top floor restaurant with a panoramic city view, the brasserie, to the turn down service, this was a perfectly run hotel. A lovely way to begin and end your stay in exquisite Lyon, France. Their Michelin starred restaurant alas, was closed for summer holidays. Next time! Thank you for a wonderful memorable stay.

Great location. Right by the river and you can walk to most tourist attractions. I would not call it a true 5-star. Some room interiors are better than others and the rooms look more dated than the lobby area. The big plus is that it has a secure underground carpark and it is great if you have a car. Parking...

The hotel is well located in the city center, and at walking distance of the vieux Lyon. Close to the hotel there is a street full of local restaurants with terraces, very recommendable. Rooms are very comfortable, beds no so. Breakfast is very good with fresh orange juice and fresh fruit like passion fruit. There is a cocktail bar in... More

We called on short notice for a room, the staff was delightful, the room was comfortable clean and air conditioned! Short walk to the river, shopping. Breakfast on the top floor with a view was excellent and included in the price of the room. Centrally located to see the sights of Lyon.

This hotel is located perfectly to all the great shops, wonderful restaurants and Old Town. It's easy to drive to right along the river, on site parking and coffee shops close by. We would definitely stay here again.

The Sofitel is in a good location, right on the water and just around the corner from the Bellecoeur Square. The hotel lobby is beautifully decorated and we were happy to have a glass of the fresh iced green tea that is waiting upon arrival. There was a big bowl of fresh fruit as well.

Professional and courteous service from start to finish. Valet parking was helpful after a long drive. This hotel has good views over the river and is well located. We took a junior suite on the 2nd floor with a river view. It was comfortable and spacious but frayed around the edges. Not good value for money in its present state,... More
