This hotel is a rennovation work in progress but the staff are lovely and the position right on Bellecour Square is amazing. The views over the square and the old town of Lyon are great. Shopping and great cafes are a few minutes walk only. Well worth the stay and once tge renno is complete will be a lovely french... More

My wife and I stayed in a regular room. My sister in law stayed in a suite. Both were simply gorgeous. Their photos on the Web do not do the decor justice. I have no complaints, even tiny ones. The staff were very helpful to the ladies in my party who do not speak French. It's location on the stunning... More

This hotel is in a good location – close enough to walk to most places in Lyon and right beside the metro for those places that are a little too far away. The check in was fast enough, although we weren’t offered a map of Lyon, or given any direction or suggestions as to what was available in the area... More

We were in two minds about which hotel to book for a little get away. After great consideration we eventually settled on Hotel Le Royal Lyon. The hotel is centrally located and close to everything. It has the potential to be exceptional but falls short because aspects of the hotel are seriously dated. The service was good. The front desk... More

This property has a great location, fronting onto Place Bellecour. Both the Rhone and the Saone rivers are an easy walk. As is the old town, with its funiculars to the Basilica and Roman amphitheaters. The bookstore is two blocks away, and there is a restaurant and culinary school right in the hotel (ask about a discount at the front... More

We spent 4 nights at this quite quirky hotel, and enjoyed it greatly. Room was very comfortable, with aircon, a great bonus since the weather was very hot. Location was perfect for tourism between old town and centre, a few yards from metro line, right by the open top bus stop and close to a good number of restaurants and... More

We came off a long haul flight from Singapore about to join a river cruise. I booked this hotel as it had some great reviews. It certainly lived up to the hype. It was a beautiful hotel.

We were exceptionally pleased with our stay in the Hotel Royal Lyon. The location on Place Bellecour was close to transportation and walking distance to dining, Vieux Lyon and Croix-Rousse (okay, a long walk there). The hotel is even more exquisite than it appears in the photos (although keep in mind I adore toile). The public areas are comfortable and... More

We spent a bit extra for a superior room, which presumably overlooked the courtyard, but we never opened the frosted windows and it was incredibly hot and the air conditioning was most welcome!
