Location is the great advantage for the Grand Hotel des Terreaux. It is located at a walking distance from great restaurants and shooping area. The hotel is a typical french hotel. Looks old, has a tiny elevator, rooms are small. The breaksfast room is located by the pool area, which has that pool smell... Imagine that early in the morning...

We took a quick trip to France from Geneva and our first stop was in Lyon. We enjoyed the central location of the hotel allowing you to visit the old town area and museums right around the corner. Yes the rooms are small at many European hotels but still very comfortable with a nice bathroom. Lobby bar is a relaxing... More

Good location, very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely building with exposed stone and tastefully decorated. Room on the small side for a twin but the bathroom was good and had a large bath. Bedding wasn’t of the highest quality but was still ok. Wi-fi worked well in the room but not in the breakfast area. Didn’t use the indoor pool... More

This was not the hotel I intended to stay in. The hotel I was booked into couldn't accommodate me for some reason, so I was sent along here. Service is good and friendly and the bar is good too. Location is excellent - close to a variety of restaurants and interesting parts of the city. The room, however, is tiny.... More

This is a great little hotel in the heart of Lyon, you can walk anywhere from this spot to both rivers and around the town. The breakfast is the best and the dinning room is super cool indoor pool is interesting (right next to the dinning room). The rooms are good size but get a high floor facing the street... More

I love the location of this hotel because it is close to the river and perfect for sightseeing and shopping. It is also walking distance to numerous quality restaurants & cafes. When I stayed here with my sister in August the reception staff were friendly (day & night) and spoke very good English. Wifi worked well and was free. The... More

We had an excellent room on the 5th floor, quiet and very individually decorated. Check in was straightforward and the staff friendly and helpful, recommending and booking excellent nearby restaurants. It's located 5 minutes walk from a Metro station and is within easy walking distance of the old town and Roman remains. We wouldn't hesitate to stay in this hotel... More

We had two rooms, kindly adjacent as we were travelling together. I had stayed here 20 years ago and was pleased to find everything just a touch better this time: bedding, draperies and carpets updated, bathroom small but efficient, public spaces charming. We can't speak to the pool or breakfast as we didn't partake but this hotel is great value... More

Our room 209 was lovely, with beautiful French style. Beds were very comfortable. The staff were so nice. I hate the stereo type view that the French do not like the English. I loved the French and these guys at the hotel are absolutely lovely. This hotel is a perfect place to explore the gastronomic perfection of the great city... More

We chose a hotel in the center part of Lyon so that we could walk around this busy city. This hotel is on a narrow side street and the entrance is nothing to write home about but the accommodations were very good. The hotel staff were very helpful in advising us where we might go to eat as they don't... More
