The staff in the breakfast room was amazing. Very nice maitre d'. However, the breakfast, especially for the price was amazingly limited. If you do not eat sugar, then all you were left with was bread and butter, with some poor quality fruit. Everything else was loaded with sugar. They did have decent coffee. The rooms were a bit shabby... More

Beautiful hotel in a fantastic location. Staff wonderfully attentive with your every interest at heart. Beautifully appointed rooms ( although I was a little disappointed that the lavatory and wash basin were a good 40 feet away from each other)...HOWEVER...I would seriously think twice about eating in the restaurant and would avoid the beef on the bone at ALL costs....

The hotel is one of the Relais et Chateaux, a luxury hotel in an old convent, perched overlooking Old Lyon and with a stunning view of the city. It is located within walking distance of the Roman amphitheater and Basilica. If you are driving, you have to park right outside the entry and have the hotel staff move your car... More

+ Excellent service (I was upset when we arrived to discover a tiny room - we were 2 adults and 2 kids. Despite the fact that I was not very pleasant (I must confess!), the person at the reception remained extremely nice and professional, and immediately tried to find a solution for the next day, which I really appreciated.

Beautiful property with loverly pool and magnificent bar and setting. That said it is virtually impossible to drive to and if you want to take a shower.....forget about that! Last trip we stayed free at Hilton on points and this time we decided to go for the old town flair. I'm not sure that we'll go back to Lyon seeing... More

We stayed one night at the Medici Suite, and ate at the hotel restaurant. It was the type of experience one would expect from a 5 star hotel and restaurant in the gastronomic capital of France. The history of the structure is, in itself, fascinating, having originally been a convent from the 15th century. Once inside the room, there was... More

The hotel faces East with beautiful views but in consequence no sunset. We had a corner room on the sixth floor - really comfortable bed and pillows . They do insist on taking you to your room which is a bit tiresome if you have had a long car journey and just want to get there.The welcoming cocktail,whilst you wait... More

There was some mix up with the booking and when we arrived we had apparently booked a Junior suite for 2 nights and a Master suite for 2 nights and we were staying for one night. We had confirmation for the junior suite and the 2 day booking for this room was due to cancellation and rebook which the computer... More
