We stayed for three nights. The room was just as represent in the photos. The evening concierge, Gregory, was extraordinary: he helped us get the best transportation to our next city and even came up to replace our broken expresso machine with a brand new one (and lots of extra coffee!). All of the staff were extremely nice. The bed...

The Hotel Le Royal Lyon is a stylish hotel, with a strong, typical French decor. The rooms are very comfortable, breakfast is fabulous and the hotel is located near the trains, tourist attractions and plenty of restaurants. Brisk walk across the bridge which crosses the Seine and you will find the fabulous old town - don't forget your camera.

We stayed recently for a weekend city break in Lyon. The hotel was excellently located in the heart of old town. Close to all the sights and great restaurants. The hotel service was exceptional and the rooms were nicely decorated and the bed very comfortable. The hotel bar and restaurant were also very quaint. Would definitely recommend to others!
