This hotel is extremely well run with very friendly and professional staff. That would be my main observation tho other aspects of it were also good such as the location, rooms and character. On arrival, the receptionist recommended a superb gluten free restaurant for lunch which was just brilliant.

From the helpful reception (advice in English for navigating the city, dinner reservations, museum hours checking, calling a cab) to beautifully appointed spacious rooms to an attractive lounge -- not to mention a perfect location for walking the city -- this is a great choice. Reasonable rates available on Priceline, too!

This a very beautiful and charming boutique hotel in Lyon with a fabulous staff. My lovely room was pristine and their coffee (room service) was the best I have ever tasted! I also found this to be a fabulous location for trains, museums, shopping and restaurants.

This is a beautiful late 18th century hotel with a lot of character while still being quite luxurious. Operated by Accor Hotels as an MGallery product, I thought the quality was closer to their Sofitel product. This French chain really trains its staff well, and the front desk staff were a significant part of my high rating. The room was... More

So what more can I say. My husband and I visited Hotel Carlton in Lyon a few days ago. We stayed only two nights and would have loved to stay longer but our itinerary did not allow. First of all Lyon is a gorgeous city full of beautiful white and cream buildings, with floor to ceiling windows and lovely wrought... More

The Carlton is in a very convenient location for exploring Lyon, as well as being 5-10 mins walk from 2 metro stations. We had a standard room on the first floor : comfortable bed, tall windows, big TV, not much space otherwise. The bathroom was modern and a good size. I have 2 minor complaints : one is that there...

The beds are the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever stayed in. The hotel is beautifully renovated and maintains an old style character. It is fantastically located and you... More

We stayed at the Carlton Hotel for 3 nights in July 2014 and had an overall good stay. We stayed in the Cozy room (18sq.m) on the second floor which is small but average size for hotels in France. The room was well decorated, the bedding was comfortable and the bathroom was stocked with enough amenities. But be ware that... 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
