Can't remember how I decided upon the Hotel Silky but glad I did. Our arrival wasn't entirely great as the receptionist was trying to manage the front desk and the very popular happy hour. This meant a delay to our check in and a somewhat frazzled welcome from the lady in question. The rest of the time these areas were...

Our advance search for a room in Lyon over the Easter weekend was characterised by small rooms being sold at high prices, as is common in French cities. We decided to go with Hotel Silky because of it's great location, more reasonable pricing level and transparency about room sizes. In retrospect we were very happy with our choice. The location...

Location fascinating - close to shopping, restaurants and museums. Wonderful square with pink blossoming trees in front of the hotel. Staff is always smart, helpful and prompt with a kindness that comes as natural. Gourmet minutes from 6pm to 8pm is a feature I warmly recommend (wine&taste). Newspapers & coffee in lobby. Design is charming.

The hotel is well located for all the key sights, also near to restaurants and bars. The hotel staff were friendly, accommodating and very helpful. Breakfast was plentiful, a great buffet with plenty of choice. Our room on the 5th floor was small but did have the benefit of a small balcony. Good bathroom and clean. We did have a...

The hotel is great. Very friendly staff, nice and clean rooms. The hotel offers an Apéro i.e. some wine and nibbles every evening from 6 to 8. The hotel is very well located with many restaurants and shops close by. The price for the room is very fair.

A tiny hotel Superbly located - a walking whisker away from the old town and most of the must do sites. Very friendly staff who would lay out wine and cheese every evening for guests. Not overly posh but a simple hotel with character

Very friendly & accommodating staff, lovely hotel, and spacious rooms. They have "happy time" each day from 4-6 where they provide free local wines, cheeses, meats, and other snacks. They also had a daily breakfast, that had multiple choices and was very tasty!! They even had free bottled water and umbrellas to grab by the door!

In the middle of the shopping area, this hotel is perfect to pass by and drop of your buyings :-). There are plenty of restaurants and terrases in the area. The water bottels are always availlable. Super friendly staff and nice clean rooms with a touch of personality.
