The hotel is historically interesting, beautiful and offers a wonderful view of Lyon.We had a very happy stay there en route to Cannes. It has comfortable rooms and beds but the restaurant service was v slow. Staff were excellent but dinner took three hours!

If excellence is what you crave, or rely on for sanity, and you need to be or want to be in Lyon, then rest assured you will be happy at Villa Florentine. That should say it all but since you are asking why, lets share a few details. I prefer the location which is above old Lyon on the road... More

The personnel greeted us as family members. We faced a small health problem and the ladies in the reception took the decision and ordered the chef in the restaurant to prepare for us a light dinner (chicken with rice) and in general the service is excellent.

Fabulous hotel and view of Lyon! Easy walk down to the streets of Lyon, but recommend uber or taxi back up! StationEd right above theVieux Lyon (English: Old Lyon) is the largest Renaissance district of Lyon in the 5th arrondissement of Lyon, which is an easy walk down the stairs.

If you a chance to visit Lyon, the only best place to stay is Villa Florentine. It used to house religious people so it has that divine feeling as you see the whole city of Lyon from your hotel window since this hotel is on top of a hill. The staff makes you feel very special, and it has a... More

The hotel is in a great location with beautiful vistas of all of Lyon. The room was clean and nicely decorated, but too small. Service wasn't very courteous at the front desk and no assistance was provided for arranging restaurant reservations and the like. The gym is in (what feels like) a cave, very cramped and hot. Breakfast was NOT... More

Great hotel @ a great location. Keep in mind that you have go down a lot of steps to be in the Old Town (and you have to go back up that hill again too :-) But it is worth it. Very classy and stylish hotel, with a great history (old chapel). Staff (and concierges!) very helpful and friendly. We... More

Back to the hotel and restaurant i proposed about 12 years ago, our three-days stay in the Villa Florentine was one of the most luxurious, refined and sophisticated experience so far. Chef Delsart and his crew are amazingly talented, and the hotel staff of a great help and care all our stay long. As for the location, one of the... More

Although this hotel is located on top of a hill, it can be access via the funicular. The breakfast buffet was AMAZING. The best breakfast out of 5 hotels I have stayed at in Europe this summer. High quality breads, cheese, jam, and fruits - very impressive. The room is of an old, antique style but comfortable. Service was extremely... More

We stayed at Villa Florentine on July 4,5 and I should say that we are used to staying in luxury hotels across Europe and the US. Other than one delightful woman on reception the rest of the staff were rude. The people on the Bell Desk said they were too busy to help us with our bags and when we... More
