This is a little spot that we will definitely visit again. Part of the Sofitel family, the Royal is intimate and charming. Fabric walls, delightful little settings n every corner, beautiful chinoiserie throughout. Quiet, classic, and in a great location for exploring the city. A beautiful little breakfast room with wonderful selection of fresh fruits, pastries, and eggs to order...

I stayed for 6 nights. The main entrance and the restraint are really nice and offer a great breakfast every morning included in the price. The room I stayed in was really small and barely fit a twin bed. You feel cramped while you are in the room. The bathroom was nice but small. My main complaint was the a/c...

Decided to splurge a little, and it was worth it. Beautifully updated with luxurious touches. Smallish rooms but very comfortable and nicely appointed. Great location, but GPS took us to the corner, at night, and we couldn't find the hotel entrance, or figure out where to park to unload. We wound up on the sidewalk, to find they have a...

I stayed alone in this hotel on a business trip. The hotel is at a good location and looks nice, the use of colors and materials give the feeling of class and sophistication. Too bad that the good news stops here, the fact that the curtains in the room never really close. (there is always a gap left, right or...

We spent a night at the hotel during our weekend trip to Lyon and i am glad we choose it. The hotel is really centrally located and the staff is friendly and helpful. Spacious, clean rooms and comfortable bed. It would be great though to add some alcohol in the mini bar, cause there was only soft drinks and water....

First impression: sewer gas smell outside hotel, 12-18 inch step up without any ramp access to roll a bag up and no doorman to help with bags... all this was very off-putting. Front desk area looked charming but as another reviewer put it.. staff was "icy" to put it nicely. Had asked for a room with shower over 4 weeks...
