The hotel is located in the center of Lyon. It's a 10 minute walk to almost all of the major sites. They have parking provided for a daily charge (it's a garage around the corner). The hotel was immaculate. The front desk staff were very helpful and kind. The bartender was friendly and also equally helpful. The room was large,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. Room was beautifully decorated with a lovely balcony. Staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was very tasty with a wide variety of good.

We stayed here for 3 nights and found the upgraded room to be comfortable and quiet if a bit cramped. There was no place to unpack either in the room or in the well-appointed bathroom. The very nice bathroom amenities were doled out as of they were gold; I had to ask for body lotion and couldn't get a second... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks for a business trip and was really impressed throughout my stay. The staff are extremely courteous and helpful, and speak perfect English. The hotel is beautiful inside and out, and the rooms are as well. The whole place has a classic atmosphere but is still modern. My one ask would be that they have... More

A wonderful, elegant (but well renovated) 19 century city centre hotel. We stopped here on our way south. Beautiful rooms. Pleasant staff – good recommendations of where to visit in our one day in town and where to eat. I have no complaints. Cannot comment on breakfast, as with most French hotels it’s too much when you can grab a... More

Perfect central location! Perfect that it had a carousel right outside and it helped since we were traveling with children. Lovely, friendly reception staff. Jules or Julien upon seeing that we were a family of four gave us a free upgrade. We had originally booked a regular room, without thinking too much about it, instead we were given a suite,... More

Stayed in a junior suite at the Hotel Carlton and could have done with a few more nights. This very centrally located hotel has a very nice vibe to it. Calling it a boutique hotel is a bit of a stretch but the design is contemporary, clean and well maintained - someone really liked red. As other reviewers have mentioned... More

A Very comfortable hotel to stay in Lyon. Great Location, very nice rooms, very well decorated and very functional despite being a little bit small. Staff is very nice and very helpful. The bar is also very cosy and intimate! Next time I go to Lyon I will definitely go back there!

The hotel is very well located and gives one the feeling of a very nice boutique hotel. The staff were very friendly and eager to help. The rooms have been nicely re-decorated and give a very homely feeling. Definitely a place to come back to in Lyon.
