My husband and I stayed 1 night in this hotel in mid October. We both loved it even though we had no river view window.
The hotel is strategically located in the centre of Lyon. It is probably a 15-20 minute leisure walk from the train centre. Make sure you walk through the pedestrian street Victor Hugo for a nice stroll to Place Bellecour.
The classic room was a good size room for the two of us. We were greeted with a bag of delicious cookies from the renown chef. The cookies were yummy and delicious!!!The minimalist decor is simple but yet elegant. The Sofibed is truly amazing; you should definitely try it!!! The hotel has twice daily housekeeping services and our complimentary water bottles were replaced in the afternoon. And oh.. have we mentioned about the complimentary mini-bar, luxury toiletries and the tropical rain shower?
We did not have dinner at this hotel but we went to have cocktails at the panoramic bar on the top floor. The view was amazing and the drinks were pretty good. We had a great time just spending our time here.
The breakfast is located on the panoramic floor. The breakfast was great, and the selections range from hot food (scrambled eggs, hash browns, sausages) to cold food (cold cuts, yogurt, cereals, fruits, etc.) Each table is given selections of Le Notre fruit jams which are also selection.
The hotel gives you acces to free wi-fi for a limited number of hours. In order to use the service, you need to register first. If you would like a faster and unlimited use of the wi-fi, it comes with a cost.
Overall, we had a magnificent moment at Sofitel - Lyon Bellecour. Despite the charms of the old town, somehow our best moment in Lyon was the experience of staying in Sofitel.
