We stayed there one night after we stayed at Abbaye de la Bussiere in Burgandy, both Relais and Chateaux properties. Since we did not have a good experience at Abbaye it was a very good contrast between the two properties. The minute we arrived there we were pleasantly surprised by the staff's friendliness and eagerness to help. Then General Manager came by and introduced himself and asked if there was anything he could do to help our stay a pleasant one. A kind of pampering and a nice touch you want to have at a five star Relais and Chateaux property. The hotel is locaetd in the old section of Lyon overlooking the City and has a beautiful property. The only negative is you will need to cross the bridge to get to most of attractions, shopping and restaurants but it was not such a long walk from the hotel. One caution is not to take the cable car to come back to the hotel as you can easily get lost to get down to the hotel from the cable car stop. Mondays all the good restaurants including the highly acclaimed one from the hotel are closed so we could not have a decent dinner the day we arrived but the next day we had visited all the Michelin star rated restaurants for lunch and dinner at the world capital of the gastronomy.
