We have just had a 3 night break staying at the Hotel Carlton and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. There were 4 of us and, given that we didn't intend to spend much time in our rooms, each couple had a cozy room which had everything we could possibly need. The beds were very comfortable and...

We have stayed here two times. This time we came for the Festival of Lights and the staff at the front desk was Awesome. Ask for a room facing Vieux Lyon. The breakfast is is not complementary and in my opinion not worth the money.

Very nice hotel in the heart of the modern shopping area of the city. Nice sized rooms and the included breakfast was just right. No hotel restaurant, but plenty of eating options in the immediate vicinity. Perhaps one of the most spacious room setups we have had in Europe. Very professional staff who were extremely helpful.

Hotel Carlton was a fabulous choice for staying in Lyon. The beds were comfortable. The staff was incredibly accommodating. It is central to all the neighborhood in Lyon that we wanted to walk to. Overall, great experience.

Dear Travellers, Even though the Hotel does have the picturesque location in the central of Lyon, there are a number of drawbacks holding me back from recommending this one. The price/quality has been substantially imbalanced by the overall weariness of the rooms, in addition to absent locks on the bathroom and toilet doors. Moreover, the latter ones have been split...

Dear guest, We're sorry to see that you didn't fully enjoy your stay at our Hotel Carlton Lyon MGallery by Sofitel. I'm quite surprised to read about "weariness" as our hotel has been refurnished completely 5 years ago. Regarding restrooms, we, indeed, have some toilets that are separated but not all of them, feel free to ask it for your...

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, in the wellness center 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.StoryLocated between the Rhone and Saone rivers, the Carlton Lyon hotel was built in 1894 as a "petit palace" in Lyons. 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
