First of all it is a bit of a Maze to get around. You take one elevator to go up the take a different to go down. It takes a bit of getting used to but the graciously help you through it. I have to say every person with whom we came in contact were perfect gentlemen and ladies. They... More

This is definitely not a 5 star/palace type of hotel. First we had to wait almost 30 mn to get our room although we checked in after 6.30 pm... Yes the view is astonishing! But that's about it. Our room was in a separate building, with a very very old deco. No plugs, the bathroom is probably 2 decades old... More

We went to Lyon for my birthday in Sept, 2014. I wrote a review but I must've forgotten to hit the submit button. Hopefully they've straightened out their problems at the hotel that we experienced because it's an AMAZING property. Gorgeous views out over the city, beautiful hotel! You must be willing to walk up a steep hill from the... More

Lovely historic hotel in a fantastic situation with amazingly helpful staff. Our room had an fabulous view over Lyon. No down side to our visit (except for the cold weather but they even try to counteract this with heating the outdoor swimming pool and a very warm jacuzzi). Would unhesitatingly recommend.

This is my third visit to this hotel. They have refurbished their rooms since my last visit and it was time to do so. The new look rooms are cosy, luxurious and more modern in style. They have added a small sauna next to the pool which is a real plus as previously you had to cross the whole hotel... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location, slightly elevated from the historic quarter but just below the Bastille. The restaurant food is very good, the bed extremely comfortable but above all the staff are outstanding. Very few get the friendly/ professional balance correct and every single member of staff has mastered it. Very impressive hotel.

I lived in Lyon a long time ago during college, so am relatively familiar with it - and had done quite a bit of research leading up to my return trip, so I knew that Villa Florentine was heralded as the best place to stay in the city. I had found a great rate through Relais and Chateaux, and booked... More

This 17th century convent has been restored into what is now, in my opinion, the top hotel in Lyon. From the extremely unique feel of the beautiful interior, to the breathtaking views, the Villa Florentine will offer you an experience that most hotels in the area cannot. Situated midway up the Fourvière hill this hotel offers an amazing view of... More

Villa Florentine is a charming Relais et Chateaux property in Lyon. Perched on the hill overlooking Vieux Lyon, you have a rather spectacular view of the City below. If possible, reserve a room with a City view. Our room, just off the lobby was nevertheless very quiet, comfortable, with the lovely City view. Vieux Lyon is a five minute walk... More

My husband and I arrived off of the train from Paris to Lyon and were tired and just wanted to get situated. We were warmly greeted by the reception staff at Villa Florentine and were welcomed with a fruit cocktail and macaroons. We had gotten in around 1:30pm and at first thought that we might not be able to check... More
