The outdoor evening dining experience a real treat as the menu and food were of the... More

We had 2 nights at Villa Florentine and we couldn't fault it. What an absolutely marvellous property it is. Our room was huge with a really comfortable large bed, large well-appointed bathroom, a desk and a coffee machine and lots of storage space. The hotel pool boasts fabulous views over Lyon and it was a haven on a hot afternoon... More

I am writing this review based on the premise that Villa Florentine is rated as a 5-Star Chateaux and Relais rated hotel. Therefore standards are of high expectations. Overall the hotel can be described in one word - apathetic. I am not sure what the problem is, but from our arrival there seemed to be a sense of apathy among... More

Beautiful views from centuries old buildings modernized for comfort and enjoyment. Exceptional staff. Lovely poolside dining with city views. A climb up hill from the center of old town, but worth the effort to us. Removed from the crowds but connected to the old areas.

Set atop Fourvière hillside in Vieux Lyon, Villa Florentine is a classy, sophisticated, modern hotel located in a 17th century building that was a monastery until relatively recently. In addition to the luxurious, spacious, and comfortable rooms, the hotel has a small fitness center, a gorgeous pool and jacuzzi overlooking the city, a sauna, and a Michelin-rated restaurant. At the... More

Everything about the Villa Florentine is both one-of-kind and exceedingly beautiful. The architecture. The rooms. The outdoor pool and patios. But nothing compared to the happy smiles and enthusiastic service we received at the front desk. Its not cheap but it's a world class property without rock star prices. We loved Lyon. We loved the Villa Florentine. Let yourself go... More

The staff was so attentive and the view from our room was stunning. Breakfast was so fresh and the view from the terrace over the old city was charming. The Concierge was super helpful in getting our dinner reservations in great restaurants.

Hotel is in a beautiful location with great views over the city. Rooms are small but comfortable. Bed and pillows are very good. Air conditioning is good for France. Staff are attentive and pleasant. Breakfasts are good with a wide range of foods offered. Only gripe I have is that Relais and Chateau make a big deal of giving you... More

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!
