The location was good near the train station and big shopping centre. The staff were lovely and the room was quiet big. The room needed a bit of TLC but nothing major, a celling lamp would have been nice as it was a bit dark with only the two side table lamps. The kids had a big sofa-bed to share... More

Stayed many times here. Normally always very happy because of excellent location, fine rooms & service. Awkwardly, this time I didn't feel welcome, got the smallest room w/o space to use the water boiler in a reasonable way, while the hotel was pretty much empty and despite being a BW Platinum member (probably even Diamond), Still, the Charlemagne remains a...

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour group. It was the first stop on a 2 week tour. The hotel was nice in a couple of buildings. We had to go out one building through a garden to get to the building where our room was located. It wasn't a problem because the weather was nice. The... More

Room (205) was well-furnished, clean and comfortable and had a bright modern bathroom. No fridge nor safe but not really a problem. This room benefited from a balcony facing Cour Charlemagne offering views and sounds of the busy street, including the trams! All part of the atmosphere. Good quality continental breakfast with plenty of choice. Small comfortable bar area and... More

Perfect location by a nice park, central train station near by, available parking. The hotel is pretty basic but very clean and nice with a sweet balcony restaurant. Great value for money, would definitely recommend this place!

In a business trip to Lyon, I stayed at Best Western Charlemagne for five nights in February. Location: only a few minutes walk from TGV Perrache Station. You can hop on a tram from the stop in front of the hotel (Suchet) and reach Debourg or Part-Dieu without change, which is convenient. For daily shopping, the Confluence Shopping Centre is... More

Comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the church and leafy grounds. Large French doors opening to the balcony were very welcome in hot weather. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful in a large room opening onto courtyard giving the option to have a relaxed open air breakfast. A large outdoor seating area and covered walkway between accommodation blocks, with plants and... More
