“Luxury Stay near the heart of Lyon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2011

I got a good deal for the Sofitel through booking.com and so I splurged and stayed there for 4 nights. The room was spacious enough and very comfortable. Typical ameneties for a hotel of this caliber were included, iron, safe, TV, a clock radio with iPod dock. Surprisingly internet service was also included, for which many upper tier hotels charge as much as 15 euros a day or 80 euros a week. The service of the staff was very attentive and most of the staff had a good command of English. The location around the corner from Place Bellecour made it easy to reach and easy to go out from. The restaurant on the eight floor was simply fabulous and had a wonderful view of the city. Like the hotel, it was not cheap. My meal was approximately 100 Euros, but it was one of the best I've ever had. Overall this is the nicest hotel I've stayed at in Lyon, but the luxury comes at a price.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room facing the Rhone or Place Bellecour for a better view.

Excellent hotel, excellent stay, nice staff, great location. One strange blip was an exchange with a doorman when I asked for my car keys. He gave me a stern short, very curt (rude) lecture on the importance of having my key claim card on me at all times. With any of the other staff; name room number was acceptable - the concierge even told me the card wasn't necessary. Perhaps the grumpy doorman didn't like "le estupid anglais", and couldn't resist the opportunity to sort one out.

Fantastic location - ask for a river view. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is amazing & with views over the city worth the cost. We had dinner with friends one night & they treated the 2 children in our party like they were royalty - so impressed with the staff. Food was fabulous & worth the expense for a special meal. Great hotel in a wonderful city. Not great choice for room service would be the only negative

Most striking feature of this hotel was its friendly staff - this includes Reservations Manager, bar staff, reception and room service. Their helpful approach moved well beyond that often encountered even at luxury hotels. Details were very good - soft drinks and water were supplied free. The bed and bedding were outstanding and made for a very comfortable stay. Location is excellent.
