We stayed here as a stopover whilst travelling to the South of France from the UK.On arrival we found it very difficult to find a safe place to pullover so had to make several laps around the block! When we did find a space our car was promptly parked by the doorman. We then proceeded to check in and asked... More

Ideal location, wonderful room and service, we could not have hoped for more. The Royal Suite corner rooms are a perfect size, very comfortable and quiet. Lyon is a wonderful place to visit and we need to return to see everything and again to stay at this fine hotel.

I recently stayed for one night at this centrally located city hotel on a short business trip to Lyon. The check in was warm and friendly and perfectly efficient. The ricketty lift struggled in taking me up to my single room on the top floor overlooking the street. Fortunately one of the cleaning staff, I found lurking in the corridor,... More

Le Royal hotel is situated at a great location in town, and that is one of the main reasons we chose this hotel during our short stay in Lyon. We arrived with our rental car around noon, the concierge quickly took care of the vehicle for us, which was a great relieve. We booked 2 rooms but were assigned rooms... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice and would consider returning again if a few things could be updated. The location is good, the service is consistent and the hotel is clean. My only complaint would be the mattresses. They are old, saggy and very creaky - not so good for a romantic weekend! Additionally the air systems in... More

This is a beautiful old-world hotel situated in the center of Lyon. Cosy, well kept (although a bit overwhelmingly decorated) hotel with friendly service. Le Royal is overlooking the enormous Bellecour square and is only a few paces from the best shops and restaurants in town. Good sized rooms, but very small bathrooms.
