“Step into a luxurious medieval world with today's comfort and amenities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

Cour des Loges is a beautiful step back to medieval times, however with all the modern conveniences. Upon arrival we were met by the efficient and welcoming staff who whisked us through check-in and led us to our room with easy access to a semi-private and mostly hidden garden.

Our superior room was quite spacious and comfortable complimented by a top of the line bathroom featuring a huge tub and separate shower area. Our only dissatisfaction was with the dim lighting in the bedroom. As is typical in many European accommodations the room and bedside lighting was inadequate for comfortable reading.

Breakfasts were sumptuous with many, many tasty choices. Also every day there was a different fresh juice combo such as a banana-orange smoothie with fresh herbs. This was in addition to other freshly squeezed juices.

The concierge service expertly led by Monsieur Gerard Ravet, who is a very kind and friendly man with over three decades of experience at Cour des Loges. The concierge staff was incredibly knowledgeable and intuitive. They were the best ever! Sincerest thanks to M. Ravet and his staff for making our stay and explorations extremely memorable and pleasant.

We definitely would go back to this exquisite fine hotel in a heartbeat.

Cour des Loges est une belle étape à l'époque médiévale , mais avec toutes les commodités modernes . À l'arrivée nous avons été accueillis par le personnel efficace et accueillant qui nous a rapidement à travers le check-in et nous a conduit à notre chambre avec un accès facile à un jardin semi- privé et la plupart du temps caché .

Notre chambre supérieure était assez spacieuse et confortable complétée par un sommet de la salle de bains en ligne offrant une grande baignoire et douche séparée . Notre seule insatisfaction était avec la lumière tamisée dans la chambre . Comme il est typique dans de nombreux logements européens de la chambre et lit n'était pas suffisamment éclairé pour une lecture agréable .

Les petits déjeuners étaient somptueux avec beaucoup, beaucoup de choix savoureux . Aussi chaque jour il y avait un autre combo jus frais comme un smoothie banane - orange avec des herbes fraîches . Ce fut en plus à d'autres jus de fruits fraîchement pressés.

Le service de conciergerie habilement dirigée par Monsieur Gérard Ravet , qui est un homme très gentil et amical avec plus de trois décennies d'expérience à Cour des Loges . Le concierge était incroyablement bien informé et intuitive . Ils étaient les meilleurs jamais ! Sincères remerciements à M. Ravet et son personnel pour avoir rendu notre séjour et explorations très agréable et inoubliable .

Nous reviendrions dans cet hôtel exquis amende dans un battement de coeur .

We truly thank you for your warm review and Gerard will be thrilled to guide you again through the mysterious Lyon.
We are aware of the lack of light in some rooms that's why you should feel free to ask for extra light that we would provide you with great pleasure.
We look forward to seeing you very soon.

While probably the best hotel in Lyon for an old city vacation and certainly the best possible conceirge service, it is not possible for me to rate this hotel with fine hotels elsewhere or perhaps for it to to provide the best room features. We were given a nice room on the very top floor (attic sort of) however the bath was in an alcove near the bed and although there was a handheld shower head it was impossible to shower without getting water everywhere - unless maybe you are a young supple athlete! as there was no hook to hold it. The room had windows but still was a bit dark, too full of "antique" furnishings but no chest of drawers. We requested a change of room "with a shower" and because the hotel was not fully booked for the rest of our stay were provided with a room with a nice bath/shower and open doors to the upper garden. Overall they do the best they can with a building that is hundreds of years old built into the hillside. Once you tour this fantastic old city you will understand.
The location of the hotel was absolutely the best, easy walk to the metro, easy walk to the Rhone and the Soane and right in the midst of old town sites, galleries, bakeries and restaurants. It own Michelin Star rated restaurant was fabulous and the sommolier was especially interesting and his service invaluable. Breakfast was very good as well and the bar inviting. The Bistro was very accommodating to two weary but excited Americans who needed sustinance before our room was ready.
Taxis were easily arranged as well as guided walks around the old town. And we loved our three full days in Lyon!

We stayed here for the second time, first time was about 12 years go. Still very charming, good concierge, good valet service at checkout and excellent restaurant.
However the reception was very cold and unfriendly. It could had been nice to at least been offered some water at our arrival.
The hotel and rooms need to be updated, the shower head didn't stay up so it was hard to take a shower with one hand and the TV in the salon didn't work. This features in a 5 start hotel should have been checked.
The best part of the hotel was the restaurant, good breakfast and excellent dinner.
I will come back to the restaurant but not to the hotel.

Room Tip: If you stay at room 51, consider that you will have the shower and toilet in the ground floor but th...

First of all, we want to thank for review. It is always very helpful for us to get a feedback from our clients as the whole team of Cour Des Loges aims to make our clients stay the best possible.
I am very surprised that the shower did not work perfectly as we just renovated all the bathrooms with brand new material. So make sure that we will do our best not to allow these kind of inconveniences happen again and this also holds up true for the television.
Despite these incidents, we are glad that you enjoyed the food and we truly hope that you will come back soon and enjoy your whole stay.

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!

Room Tip: Our suite on the 3rd floor both overlooked and had quick access to the charming 'hanging gardens...

The whole team of Cour Des Loges wants to thank you for your review. You were clearly touched by the hotel atmosphere with its warm design from the renaissance. Indeed, we worked with a great designer who was able to preserve the soul of this majestic building while making it a charming place to allow our clients to have a one in a life experience.
Nonetheless I have to admit that I am surprised that you did not enjoy the breakfast very much as it's known to be one of the best in Lyon. That's why we hope you will give it another chance and that you will try our Sunday brunch that will not disappoint you.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and this is a wonderful hotel, the combination of the old and the new and the imagination shown by the architect makes this place very special. The rooms are beautifully appointed and everything is just right.
The Michelin star restaurant in the hotel is not to be missed and the dining room with its glass atrium roof is absolutely magnificent as is the food and service.
In fact, everyone at this hotel deserves a special mention as nothing is too much trouble.
The bar is also a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing.
All in all, this was a perfect stay which we hope to enjoy again in the not too distant future as there is just so much to see in Lyon and a couple of days just is not enough.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good here and the neighbourhood is very quiet at night.

This is considered the best hotel in Lyon, and I can see why. The building is a remarkable historic preservation, and its location places you right in the middle of the historic area. The concierge staff was extraordinarily helpful in plotting out two days of sightseeing that got us to all the important sights. The spa/hamam is very appealing. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Overall, as I said in the title, one of the few top price hotels that is really worth the cost. I would skip the meals (overpriced, especially 23 euros for breakfast), as the immediate area of the hotel has many inviting restaurants.

Room Tip: If booking into a standard room, ask for room 36, which is the only one with a direct private door o...
