This place is in the Terreaux area which is packed with restaurants, markets and shopping nearby. It's about a 20 euro taxi ride from either of the 2 nearest train stations. There is an elevator. The bed was the most comfortable I've had so far in Europe - supportive but soft enough to sink into a little. An extra pillow... More

Two nights in this lovely, accommodating hotel in belle Lyon. Good size room, characterful pool and good quality breakfast! Best of all in a city like Lyon was the location, handy for the old town and walks along the two rivers.

We stayed here in July not fully knowing what to expect from Lyon and the drive from the station to the hotel had us wondering what we had done! But what a delight - both the hotel and Lyon! Lovely "French" room, not huge but enough for two and a nice bathroom, it even had window which opened onto the... More

We were staying here for an action packed 24 hrs or so to go to the France v Ireland game at the Euro Cup. The hotel was conveniently located to walk to most tourist attractions which was very nice. We stayed in the second category of room which had sufficient space although it would have been tight if we had... More

Lyon is a fantastic city and it was great to be so centrally located. This hotel is like a tardis and being in the centre of town it has to be compact. Our room was more than comfortable with every detail thought out right down to the fluffy white robes :-) The staff were super helpful and the hotel's hidden... More

Stayed for 4 nights as a family of 4. The hotel is in a great location, a fair way from the station but walkable to most sights and with a vast array of restaurants and bars very close. The rooms were a little on the small side, and no fridge or kettle were provided in the room. The bathrooms were... More

...in an interesting part of Lyon with easy access to the old town and the shopping district. Very good reception staff. Nice albeit slightly small rooms but well appointed. Amazing breakfast but make sure it's included in your room rate as expensive if not... alternatively eat lots...

Grand Hotel des Terreaux is a charming and exclusive hotel with charming and cosy rooms. A nice indoor swimmingpool and a lovely breakfast buffet. The staff was very friendly too. The hotel is located in the center of Lyon, on the Island between the old part of Lyon and the new and moderne part of Lyon so from this hotel... More

Unfortunately we had only two nights in Lyon. This hotel is centrally located, is clean - and most important had a nice shower cubicle. Nice little additional touches such as slippers. No curtain in bathroom window however, which was a little disconcerting.

This hotel is not to be faulted. Friendly staff, comfortable beds, nice pillows,and reasonably quiet. Elevator to rooms is very welcomed. Close to river and square, a short walk across river to old town. We didn't have breakfast here so can't comment. In all, we were very happy here.
