Stayed here for two nights in April 2014, and loved it. If for no other reasons, go here for the atmosphere and the location (plus the restaurant at night). Some complain that rooms can be a tad cramped, and indeed ours was a suite facing north, east and west which had a steeply sloped ceiling which placed windows in awkward locations and had the views somewhat constricted. However, that was more than made up for by the wonderful interior design and decorating - the creative use of antique furnishings and, beamed ceilings and wooded scrollwork mixed with 21st C lighting, fabrics and amenities was delightful. The bedding was superb, the bathroom ideal (especially the tub with a view of the Basilica!!), and the service expert.
Public areas are plentiful, with tons on little nooks perfect for cuddling. The lobby bar was great, with a mixologist who knows his stuff (nice in France!)
Last, you just cannot beat the location. Right in the center of Vieux Lyon (in a pedestrian district), you truly feel like stepping beck in time every time you leave the hotel. Narrow cobblestoned streets, hidden courtyards and 'secret' passages. Tons of great cafes, bars, restaurants and wine caves just steps away, and a short walk across the Saone brings you to world-class shopping and strolling and people watching on Rue Victor Hugo!!
PS The breakfast buffet did not overwhelm. Not bad, but not good either. Might as well skip it and head into the city to sip cafe with the people!
