Really a spectacular hotel from the 19th century. The architecture, the service and everything else about it is terrific. A special place to stay in Lyon - if not, a special place to see. Enjoy...

This is a lovely building, in the heart of the Presqu'ile, the centre of Lyon (between the two rivers). It's right next to Hotel de Ville metro station.

This impressive building is the city hall in Lyon. There is a crowded square close by and if you want to walk around there are many historic buildings and you might find the architecture interesting. That apart there are lots of shops and restaurants all around this handsome monument.
