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. The room we had was decorated in lovely French style, I really felt I had started my holiday. The breakfast in the hotel... More

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! We were welcomed at the entrance in our rental car and the staff took care of our considerable baggage quickly and efficiently. The staff couldn't help enough... More

It's difficult writing a review when you're lost for words but I will give it a try anyway. When we arrived we weren't sure we were in the right place because we thought we would enter the Institut Paul Bocuse. We were right however and stepped inside a different world. The entrance hall is elegant and decorated with an eye... More

We understand this hotel is undergoing a re-furb, and clearly not before time. The plus points first. We asked for and got a quiet room. OK it overlooked the grotty back but this was fine by us as we had a good sleep. No disturbance. All of the staff were courteous, helpful, patient and professional. I say patient, because the...

A delightful experience each time. I'd recommend highly. The rooms are very comfortable ... I wish we could take the bed and linens home! The breakfast is an experience not to be missed.
