We were shown to our room which was rather small but acceptable given the history of the building.The bathroom... More

This is one of those rare, extraordinary experience type hotels. The view is breathtaking. The sauna, steam bath, whirlpool and pools are exquisite. The food is top notch. The only down side, which can be seen as a bonus, is that getting back to the hotel on foot from downtown Lyon requires going up a good couple of hundred steps... More

A friend and I had lunch here at the weekend. We were in Lyon looking for great food and we had read about this restaurant.

We spent 2 nights in Villa Florentine, a former convent. The rooms are very nice, beds comfortable etc. except the 'separate toilet' which is a mild inconvenience. Service is warm and efficient. I had a nicely done soft boiled eggs with soldiers for breakfast.

Lovely hotel overlooking the historic downtown on Lyon. Staff was amazing from check in to the end. Room was good but not amazing. I think they definitely make it up with amazing service. Breakfast was a la carte and wonderful. Internet was a bit spotty but worked. Only thing to remember is that you need to go down 300 steps... More

We stayed there in autumn last year and from the moment we entered the hotel until we left, we were treated as if we were the most special guests ever, spoiled and looked after. This place is a real gem, tucked on the side of the uphill road (not a fun climb for people with health problems though), with breathtaking... More

This is a spectacular hotel with a nice overlook of Lyon. The price of the view is the 222 step climb down to Vieux Lyon and the even steeper climb back up. Taxis are not readily available so if climbing up and down is a problem, you will be stranded at Villa Florentine. Otherwise, the room we had was large... More

My husband and I made a sentimental journey back to Lyon France last month. We had visited there a number of years ago and had very fond memories of Villa Florentine. We made reservations and requested a room in the original building, not the new addition. We were given a lovely room, really a suite, that over looked the old... More
