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

We had an evening in this beautiful hotel, which a fabulous panoramic view over Lyon. Although the restaurant is supposed to be very good, we were not impressed by the food. The veal in particular was over cooked.

We returned to Lyon for a weekend after moving away 10 years ago. The staff is still very nice and accommodating. My room was not ready when I arrived (11am, I didn't expect it to be ready), so I was offered a drink/coffee, and told it would be ready soon. I relaxed in the lobby as I was told the... More

Gorgeous hotel, amazing view of the city. My sister and I stayed here for one night but wished we had longer to take in more of the sights. The Hotel is so pretty, a converted 17th Century Convent. Our room was amazing, huge bed and very clean. There wasn't a hook for the shower so had to take a bath... More

In a world of ordinary hotels, and trust me- I am a professional traveller, Villa Florentine really is something out of the ordinary. The hotel is in the style, and taste, of a Palazzo in Florence. The hotel is situated high over Lyon, with a magnificent view facing east over the city. The decor is elegant rather than flashy. As... More

This is the third "Relais et Chateaux" for my wife and I this week. We started with outstanding experiences at Domaine de Verchant and Crillon-Le-Brave. This was to be the grand finale in my childhood hometown of Lyon. Villa Florentine however does not live up to the hype. The classic look and good location cannot compensate for the outdated bathrooms... More
