Stayed with my family in suite with river view. The room was of very high standard, with comfortable beds with premium sheets. The breakfast facility offered stunning view over Lyon city. The personnel was welcoming and service minded.

The Sofitel Lyon Bellecour is a very well located hotel along the Rhone river, right near the outstanding shopping and pedestrian promenade. The hotel rooms are clean and nicely appointed though not luxurious. The very special feature here is the top floor which has a terrific bar that offers beautiful views and a neighboring area that provides a terrific buffet... More

we spent 2 days in a Junior suite this weekend. Restaurant is closed on Sundays so you have to eat in a "cafeteria type restaurant". slow service, chairs had food on from previous guests, staff did their best, but just rushed off their feet. The suite was clean, but very very tired/out of date. Service was generally poor. Breakfast not... More

We stayed at the Sofitel Lyon for two nights, in a "superior room with a view" on the 5th floor, which suited our needs. With hindsight probably the extra payment for the view was not really necessary as whilst a good outlook over the Rhone River, we were seldom in the room, and we found the room became overheated with...

This is our second stay in 6 months ... we were here in January 2016 for some antique hunting. This time we were here on the way to Cologne, and needed a good pet friendly hotel on the way.

Stayed for two nights, easy to walk the city and see the sites. A bit pricey, might choose a boutique style next time. The staff was professional and the hotel clean and modern. Our room was fine, I feel there was just nothing exceptional.

Very comfortable and well-appointed hotel in center of Lyon and convenient walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Great views overlooking the Rhone and although it's on a busy main thoroughfare, the rooms are quiet. The lobby is modern and clean although a little sparse in comfortable seating when waiting for or meeting colleagues. The rooms are very nice and... More
