Stayed for 4 nights on the top floor. Had no problem with the small lift but could see how it would be a problem at busy times. The room was not huge but we didn't spend much time in it other than to sleep. The bed was great had the best sleep for ages. Staff at reception were very nice... More

Very good hotel. Rooms are very clean and well furnished (old style)! Good bed and bathroom! No noise at all in the room and in the corridors. A bit of noise from the street (it seems that there is a trap in the street) but not so many cars. Brekfast is ok, even though it must be taken on tiny... More

Welcoming reception staff and a well situated hotel for exploring the old town. Recommend a river cruise and exploring the streets around the hotel. Decent breakfast buffet, nice coffee and a bizarre swimming pool in the breakfast room - interesting feature. Parking around the corner and super market opposite hotel.

We stayed in Lyon for two nights at the Grand Hotel des Terreaux. The staff were kind and responsive. However, our room, though quiet, was small (even though upgraded) and warm. The air conditioning struggled, ultimately losing to the warm September days. Upon request, the hotel did supply us a fan. While I do not think this hotel was outstanding,... More

The hotel is in a great location to walk across the River Saone to the old part of the city (St Paul and St Jean). We were on the 3rd floor facing a courtyard. The 1st night we had a noisy air-conditioner, complained next day and were immediately given another, and better, room. The rooms are quite spacious (for France),... More

We were on the top floor facing the street in an upgraded unit. It was spacious and very romantic! There were two huge windows that opened up into the street as well as another window in the bathroom the opened up to the courtyard. The hotel is in a superb location. The staff are very accommodating and helpful. The building... More

A lovely hotel perfectly placed in the middle of Lyon just right for a four night city break. Very friendly and efficient staff, clean rooms and a lovely breakfast. Our only regret that we didn't get the chance to use the unusual swimming pool. Certainly would stay here again especially as we heard the magic words we've upgraded you. This... More

We spent one night here in a standard room. The hotel describes the room as good for a short stay for 1 or 2 people and they are right. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom up-to-date. Room clean and good wifi. I wouldn't want to spend multiple nights in it with another person due to its size only.... More

From an ancient cloister, this hotel has large rooms by french standards, and it has been recently completely renovated. Everything is cleaned, and the location is awesome: you can visit the center (presqu'Ile) or go uphill to Croisxousse or go over the river and visit the Old Lyon. You even have a small swimming pool, in an ancient cave, very... More

THe hotel is only a stones throw away from what I consider to be one of the best restaurants in Lyon. "Leon de Lyon" The buffet breakfast was excellent and all in all... More
