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...

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...

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. Do not forget the assistance our concierge provided you for the contacts with the police to complain. Do not forget the table we found...

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,...

While the staff were excellent the building and the rooms were definitely not five star. It's a decaying "grand dame". Our junior suite was under ground, gloomy, dark, with no view and decaying walls. If you book make sure they guarantee your room has a view and natural light. Also make sure you are ok with a climb of 220...

I had long desired to stay here since first seeing it on a brief trip to Lyon some years ago. Its surprisingly easy to drive to given its location. The staff are attentive and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable if a little dated and in need of some refurbishment (a lot of tarnished gold fittings circa 1980's) Very quiet and...

We were in this hotel for a business meeting. The hotel room was ample and comfortable. Meals were very good, especially lunch and dinner. Great view over Lyon from the meeting room and restaurant. Walking distance to the historic center of Lyon. Only disadvantage is that some rooms are a little further away from the main building.

Excellent service from genuinely friendly staff with a welcome from the manager in person which was much appreciated. Super views from terraces; rooms and the breakfast area plus a decent sized outdoor pool with bar and loungers. The breakfast buffet choice was huge . The outdoor evening dining experience a real treat as the menu and food were of the...
