We stayed at this hotel to finish our 5 week tour of Spain and France. Got a great deal as an Accor member. The room was a good size, for France, and had been recently decorated in a modern style but with a touch of romanticism about it. Comfortable large beds with excellent bed linens and towels. The bathroom was... More

I stayed here as part of my 2.5 weeks Europe trip where I had booked into 5 lodgings in total. This was hotel number 5, and I had just checked out of Ibis Budget Berlin. I must say, for the huge price difference, Ibis Budget was a no-frills, no surprise place that exceeded expectations. Comparatively, there was some sort of... More

We stayed two nights at Hotel Carlton during our honeymoon and it was a real pleasure. The staff was really welcoming and helpful, and the design of the hotel has a lot of character including an old world style elevator. The room was nice and spacious. The location of the hotel is within easy walking distance from the main sites... More

We enjoyed a lovely 3 night break in Lyon. First time visitors to this city. We were there for the food and the bouchon's and both were excellent. The hotel is just off the main street but very quiet. It's 5 mins to the main restaurant areas, 5 mins to the shops and 12 mins to the old town. Very... More

Beyond being situated in a central location, the staff at the front desk here has been amazing. From Coralie to Aurelien, they not only helped us with a series of bookings (and some cacellations) but often anticipated our needs and questions, and always with a Gallic smile. They were patient with our comme-ci comme-sa French and offered to switch gears... More

The staff at the hotel is very friendly and the hotel itself is very clean. We had a room facing the square with the carousel which was nice but very small. For me what was lacking was in the details. Although every thing was clean and well kept we only had 1 towel in our room and there was no... More

A colleague and I spent 8 nights here on a business trip. It was more than we even hoped for. Our room faced the lovely Place de la Republique, and we could faintly hear the very French accordion music emanating from the charming old carousel. So atmospheric. Our bathroom was extra large - who expects a hotel bathroom to have... More

Whether you are in Lyon for pleasure or business, this hotel is great. You can walk everywhere or just a short bus ride to places such as Convention Center. Great breakfasts and a helpful barman! In fact all the staff were terrific. The only disappointing thing was no iron/ironing board in the room and took 16 hours to get one... More

We had a great stay at this hotel. Great room, great staff, great location. Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in too! It was right near some wonderful restaurants and a short stroll to the river where we were able to have a lovely picnic in the sun. The staff were really friendly and helpful even though we spoke no... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Be enchanted by the Carlton Lyon hotel, located on the peninsula. Despite being fully renovated in 2012, it has retained its authenticity and personality, blending contemporary comfort with sophistication. Relax in one of the 80 tastefully decorated rooms, in the wellness center or in the cozy atmosphere of the bar. The hotel is just a 5-minute walk from the Bellecour metro stop and is the ideal base for exploring Lyon, with its opera house, museums, the St. Jean cathedral and more.StoryLocated between the Rhône and Saône rivers, the Carlton Lyon hotel was built in 1894 as a "petit palace" in Lyons. Punctuated by its forged iron balconies, dome and rotundas, its splendid Haussmann facade echoes the refinement of its historical decor.The hotel's "Signature" rooms also highlight artists who have stayed there. Travelers will appreciate immersing themselves in the splendid adornments of the many talents that have visited the hotel. ... more   less
