“Nice room, very good location”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Stayed here for a night in October on business.
Location is very central, just minutes walk away from the main restaurant street Le Merciere.
Room isn't too big, but clean and decorated in old-fashion style.
Breakfast was very complete.
It was served next to the pool, which makes it a quite humid experience.
The pool itself consists of a few small basins, so do not expect to be able to really swim.
Friendly service.

Such a wonderful hotel. Could not fault a thing. Perhaps one of the best hotels myself and my wife have stayed in, and theres been a lot. It has a real unique character to it. Unforetunetly we only stayed 2 nights to finish off an amazing week long trip to Lyon. It was such a great hotel to stay in to top off such a great week.

Far and away the best of the four hotels we stayed in during our trip to France in Sep.-Oct. 2012. It is a medium-sized hotel, but feels as if it was family owned and –run. The staff are professional and friendly, and did their best to ensure that our visit to Lyon was a success gastronomically and –more broadly –culturally. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The breakfast catered to a broad range of tastes, and included dishes (other than scrambled eggs) specially prepared in the kitchen. The clients came from several European countries, Great Britain, and N America; the French were well represented (I take this as a sure sign that the hotel offered good value for money). My one note of caution is that the hotel is located in a well-renovated but old building; there are some steps (to the elevator) that could not be negotiated by a person in a wheel chair. If this qualification is ignored, the hotel richly deserves a four-star classification.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, LE GRAND HOTEL DES TERREAUX is one of Lyon’s oldest hotels. It combines the atmosphere of an old-fashioned 19th century town house with a daringly modern, innovative design. Every detail shows the personality of this place which is brought to life by the passion of its staff and the soul of its Guests. This lovely hotel enjoys a prime location on the peninsula, not far from the Lyon Opera House and the Théatre des Célestins, just on the edge of the historic centre of Lyon with its many bistro-style restaurants (known locally as ‘bouchons’), and a stone’s throw from the Place des Terreaux and the Musée des Beaux-Arts. As you will see from our guest book, we have had the privilege of welcoming a number of very famous guests. ... more   less
