The hotel has just completely renovated. All the works have been done. It gave a luxurious feel right from the lobby with decadent decoration. Staff were helpful and speak fluent English.
The double room I got was on the small size but had enough room for two large luggages to be opened on the floor. The decoration was done in red and white, so it was refreshing and modern. In the same time, with all the designs on the wallpaper and carpet, it gave you luxurious feelings. The bathroom was huge with fully closed shower with a transparent door. (It was the only place in our trip with fully closed shower area.)
Everything was crisp clean. One still mineral water bottle and one sparkling mineral water bottle were given to us free everyday.
The location couldn't be better. Right under the hotel is a Sephora. On the corner of the hotel is the shopping street, with Printemps within 2 minute walk. 5-minute walk from the hotel, you will reach LV, Hermes, and the Bouillet chocolatier.
Highly recommended and I will definitely stay here again if I go to Lyon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Be enchanted by the Carlton Lyon hotel, located on the peninsula. Despite being fully renovated in 2013, it has retained its authenticity and personality, blending contemporary comfort with sophistication. Relax in one of the 80 tastefully decorated rooms or in the cozy atmosphere of the bar. The hotel is just a 5-minute walk from the Bellecour metro stop and is the ideal base for exploring Lyon, with its opera house, museums, the St. Jean cathedral and more. Located between the Rhone and Saone rivers, the Carlton Lyon hotel was built in 1894 as a "petit palace" in Lyon. Punctuated by its forged iron balconies, dome and rotundas, its splendid Haussmann facade echoes the refinement of its historical decor. The hotel's "Signature" rooms also highlight artists who have stayed there. Travelers will appreciate immersing themselves in the splendid adornments of the many talents that have visited the hotel. ... more less
