The title says it all. Every view from the hotel's public spaces is breathtaking. The hotel, a former convent, sits high on a hill overlooking Lyon. We stayed in a junior suite, which was a bit of a splurge, but our room had three giant windows with French doors that we were able to fling open due to the fabulous... More

Excellent Hotel and restaurant in Lyon. Suites are big and comfortable, staff extremely kind and helpful. Breakfast is very good, and restaurant is ideal for an exquisite dinner. Even if a little apart from the center, is not so distant, at walkable distance (even if you decide to return by cab), and view it is amazing.

A beautiful lobby and a wonderful concierge but that's really where the quality ends...We could not get a room service meal on Sunday night, Wifi was useless and the room very average. This is an expensive hotel and really just not good enough. A great location however and the petite fours were exceptional, but it doesn't really make up for... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and the service was first class. All of the staff went out of their way to make your stay perfect. The rooms were very nice maybe a bit dated for my taste but no problem. The view from the pool is amazing. I normally do not pay for breakfast but this is the one... More

I stayed here for one night for a birthday treat to myself. It was amazing. Expensive but amazing. I had a standard size room which was large and well decorated. The welcome home made treats were awesome! The open air pool and Jacuzzi was perfect on a sunny day and the bar overlooked the city too. The cocktails and accompanying... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here with four other couples for two nights. As soon as we walked through the door, the staff was exceptionally pleasant and accommodating.

Beautiful hotel, with reasonable size and a great view of Lyon. By night, the place has a magical side. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Some have views of the "Vieux Lyon". Pleasant terrace and pool. Excellent restaurant. Great staff.

My husband and I booked three nights in Villa Florentine to celebrate a special birthday last week but we left after two nights.
