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. We arrived pretty late, so the chef at Les Terrasses de Lyon came out and took our orders ahead of time so that they could get ready while... More

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. Our room, No. 2, was directly under the terrace of the restaurant Les Terraces de Lyon and the noise of the metal furniture being dragged across the concrete floor above our heads kept us awake until after...

Getting to Villa Florentine from Vieux Lyon takes either 250 or 267 steps (up) depending on which of two stairways from Rue La Boeuf is accessed. It's a lot of work, but the hotel and its view are worth the climb. My wife and two teenage daughters who comprised our party all agree. The hotel is a renovated rectory that... More

Back again this year and stayed three nights together with our Labrador. This is a beautiful hotel and made even better because the staff are outstanding. There are 3 large rooms with lovely private garden terraces which are very good for breakfast or dinner if you can drag yourself away from the beautiful restaurant. Lyon is a fabulous city for...

While located on a hill, it was rather accessible via a flight of stairs near the main streets of old Lyon. The room was well-furnished, comfortably sized for a family, and opened up to a fantastic view of the city. Very friendly and helpful staff. They made my family and I feel very welcomed and well taken care of. Communication... More
