The hotel is situated in a great location, with good proximity to the Metro. The front desk staff was extremely cordial. Sandrine was great and Liz Marie was excellent. The breakfast was the best combination of quality and price during our whole trip where we stayed in many hotels. The room was spacious and comfortable.

Great location on a quiet street not far from transit, attractions, the river- Vieux Lyon is just across the Saône. Small, but clean and up to date. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Front desk even went up the stairs to check if my room was ready early. I even got a complimentary upgrade to a larger room.

In June my husband and I and another couple were staying in Lyon after a river cruise and we wanted something central where we could walk to most places. This hotel was perfect for that. We could walk to both rivers and to Old Town. We had a very spacious room and the front desk staff were very friendly, helpful... More

We stayed at the Globe et Cecil in June 2016 for 2 nights. The location is very convenient, and its an easy walk to a lot of the sights around town. We had a rental car and parking is at an underground lot a few blocks from the hotel. It was a bit of a challenge to figure out how... More

Centrally located and that was a major plus but a good 20min walk from the main train station. Overpriced tiny room , small towels, grubby skirting and tiles . Receptionist continued to talk on the phone whilst dealing with me and breakfast would have been extra !!!! Not worth EUR 216

I visited Globe et Cecil for a few days and the general impression was positive for a short term stay. The most important advantage for me was the location being directly at the place bellecour and within walking distance of both the shopping streets, dining areas and old town. The service at the reception was very friendly. Breakfast is small... More

Wonderful location, lovely room, breakfast room service included very much appreciated. Sandrine concierge was absolutely fantastic. Her friendly charming and attentive way was next to none. Her advise and knowledge of restaurants and the local area made all the difference to our stay in Lyon. Definitely would stay again.
