Just spent 3 nights at this beautiful hotel. Everything about it exudes charm and class. The reception staff are all so lovely and welcoming and very helpful. Service in the breakfast room by the two waiters was friendly and efficient and the lady who cleaned our room did her job to a high standard and was lovely too. Loved our... More

A well placed and priced hotel - with an interesting past - in central Lyon. Just be aware the pool is more of a big hot tub than a pool. Staff are friendly and speak good English (if you need them to). Rooms are a good size with air con, which was surprisingly welcome this April. Ensuite bathroom is generous... More

Right in the historic heart of Lyon, with reasonable walks to main attractions of the city. A fine selection of restaurants for all budgets are close by and if shopping is your thing then these are close by as well. Rooms are well appointed and of a reasonable size. I would like a kettle & cups in the room but... More

This hotel is in great situation behind the Place de Terreaux and is really very charming. I absolutely loved the unusual swimming pool. The hotel is built in/on an old cloister and the swimming pool is downstairs under the original stone arches. The Jacuzzi in particular is in a genuine grotto.. with coloured lights reflecting on the stone roof, quite... More

Lets face it - hotels in France are not great in general. Standard is rather poor and service is.. french. Having that in mind I wasn't expecting much from my stay in Lyon. However, what I have experienced was beyond my belief. Quality standards in Grand Hotel were absolutely top notch. Staff was very friendly and most helpful. Wi-Fi worked... More

This hotel is centrally located, within walking distance to most attractions and sites. The room size wasn't too bad, but there was no tea or coffee making facilities (it might be a minor inconvenience, but when it's cold and you've returned in the rain it can make a difference). The safe was also super small. Also be aware that some... More

I spend 2 nights in Grand Hotel des Terreaux in Lyon with a group of 20 in november. The hotel is lovely, rooms are nice, clean and spacious. The breakfast was good. It's a bit odd that it's served next to the swimming pool, it's quite humid there. Luckily there is another room where you can eat as well. The... More

Staff was extremely accommodating and room was comfortable and spacious. Room did not have a view except for the alley way. Valentin was a great bartender, and he also worked the front desk. Even without a view I would recommend this hotel because of the location and service.

This was our second stay at Grand Hotel des Terreaux while visiting Lyon. Hotel staff was extremely friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Additionally, our room was very clean. Great location to everything is the greatest plus. Would recommend again and will return when we are in Lyon again. Even though the rooms are smaller (compared to other countries) they are designed... More
