“A great choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

My friend and I picked this hotel with little expectation, but was completely impressed by the location, the room, the staffs and the breakfast!! Loved everything about the hotel and would definitely be our top pick if we are to go back to Lyon. The location couldn't get any better as it is literally right across from the tourism office. The rooms are gorgeously laid out and the bed is like a puffs of clouds. Upon arrival the staff helped checking us in was more than helpful in making sure we are ok and the places to visit.

Le Royal was definitely the highlight of our trip in Lyon and a great value for money.

Hotel is situated at a great location. Bus stop for the open top bus (Le Grand Tour) is just about 50m away from the hotel entrance. It's just a short walk to the old town and the shopping areas of Lyon.
Hotel staff were very helpful and patient when I asked for directions around the area. Only set back is that there is no electric kettle to make hot water/tea&coffee provided in the room like other hotels.
Room is very clean and bed is very cosy and comfortable. However, I was awaken by some knocking sound at 7+ in the morning - probably due to some renovation work that was going on in the hotel.
If I visit Lyon again, I will definitely stay in this hotel again.

This hotel is very well located, and is walking distance to the new and old town.
The good size rooms were very clean and with a lovely view of the Notre Dame Basilica.
The staff was knowledgeable, very helpful and friendly.
I will surely recommend this hotel to whoever is going to Lyon.

After a brief visit to Paris this hotel gave me the comfort and refinement I needed upon arriving in Lyon. The staff was very respectful,helpful to a fault and offered good restaurant advice. my daughter is attending the university of Lyon and this was well located for my visit withbher. The concierge was especially helpful.

Room Tip: Don't stay overlooking plaza if you are a light sleeper

Absolutely splendid location... A treasure of a find for my first visit to Lyon. The interior designer of this hotel paid attention to every last detail, mixing tradition, class and whimsy! Excellent service! And... the bed was divine!
