The hotel seemed very empty and the hotel service seemed to lack the energy or attention you would expect from a top hotel. Eg when we arrived at the hotel entrance no one came out to greet or help with bags. We had to open the doors pulling the bags up the steps before someone appeared. The same on the... More

The hotel property is truly magnificent , an old convent beautifully restored . The deluxe room was beautifully appointed and had a lovely garden view. The concierge staff were extremely helpful with very good suggestions for Bouchons and restaurants that were matched to our price expectations. The only slight issue was very slow bar service , but that's not too... More

Walking to the hotel, we met locals and asked for directions. They said it was the best hotel in the city. It did not disappoint. Beautiful room with a view of the entire city. Superb breakfast. Staff could not have been nicer. One major note: the hotel is on a hill so access is by walking steps (220) down to... More

Beautiful hotel with excellent service. Was almost at the top of the hill, overlooking Lyon. Great views and our room was excellent. Service was what was expected from a 5 star hotel. Food was spectacular. A short walk down the hill to old Lyon. Not too far from the shopping district across the river, an easy walk. Would book again... More

Better get your walking shoes on as at the top of many many stairs mid-hill in the old city. First impression was wow gorgeous place then meh on the service as it was raining and we had to carry in our luggage seems the door person was too busy with a pretty young lady - think co-worker to help us......

This hotel experience was one of the worst we have ever encountered! SERVICE? There wasn't any. ATTITUDE? Plenty of it! ADVERTISED VIEWS ? Yes, a brick wall with some ivy on it. And, to top it all off we had our iPad stolen from the car right by the front door. Think twice before booking this little gem‼️ One saving... More

Dear Madam We understand that you are upset that your husband left his Ipad on the roof of your car, so it is not surprising that it disappeared, but do not blame us for your fault.

We loved the lobby where the decor of the convent's chapel has been lovingly preserved, the helpful staff (the concierge got us the best table at wonderful restaurants), the views over Old Lyon, the warm jacuzzi even in the fall, the lovely cuisine in the restaurant and the great breakfasts eaten in our room. We liked less the steep climb,... More
