The hotel is beautifully set on the hill overlooking Lyon. The rooms were good and bathrooms impecable. The sad thing about this hotel is the service or lack of it. The concierge gave us wrong directions to Paul Bocuse. The receptionists and concierge had no idea of places of interests. There was one temporary receptionist who spoke spanish to our...

Pros: There are only two very excellent hotels in Lyon, this is one of them. So you do not have a lot of choice. This hotel is the right place if you fascinated by views! However the view has its price, there are two Monteés (stairs) down to Vieux Lyon one with 238 the other with 208 steps! No public...

Just a one night stay at this highly rated hotel en route to the South of France for our 2 week summer vacation. I had stayed here once before and recall it being a beautiful hotel with great views across Lyon, so we decided to try it again. Apart from a few cranes on the horizon nothing had much changed,...

My family and I came to this highly recommended (and very expensive hotel,) to spend three nights towards the end of June; the welcome was assured, if slow, and the Villa commands outstanding views over Lyon. Of the rooms booked, one was a suite; the French invented the word which literally means "one room following another", but in face there...

From the moment that we walked through the door the staff attended to all our needs. The manger personally greeted us on arrival and farewelled us on departure and made sure every aspect of our stay was looked after. Excellent breakfast, rooms and comfortable beds. Fantastic views. You could not ask for a more attentive and helpful staff. Very highly...

Wow - what a place. Luxury at extreme level at reasonable prices. Staff were great and only 28 rooms. Attention to detail was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Views from our private terrace over the old town of Lyon were amazing. Highly recommend to any couple - probably not appropriate for family or children. Restaurant topped off the...

The Villa Florentine is set half way up the hill at Fourviere. This affords it exceptional views across Lyon and the broader region beyond. This is perhaps its greatest selling point, but by no means its only. The service was excellent from the moment of our arrival. Our room was upgraded to a more spacious one with exceptional views. There...

Amazing room. We were upgraded to a suite. After staying at the Sofitel marseille, this was a little slice of heaven. The staff was friendly and offered us a drink and macaron after our long drive. Our room was two stories and had English speaking tv channels- a plus! Our room had a view of the city and was walking...

After checking out of Cour Des Loges hotel (our room there was dark & in desperate need of maintenance) we moved to Villa Florentine. Located on the hill of the old town (but still walking distance to everything) it has amazing views across Lyon. We received the most hospitable welcome from the general manager who couldn't do enough to ensure...
