0.01km from Chez ColetteThis is a five-star hotel in a classic style, converted from an old building. Definitely not the kind of hotel used in China. In the center of the old town of Lyon, there are various stores on the doorstep, and a stylish chocolate shop diagonally opposite, and the famous Rose Tower attractions across the alley next to the hotel. The interior decoration of the hotel is also old-fashioned, the door is opened with a key and no card is needed. The room was beautiful and welcoming, the toilet and shower room were separated. There is also a spa on the top floor. We went to live in Lyon on the day of the annual Lyon Festival of Lights, and on the weekend, the room price doubled several times than usual. It's easy to miss without paying attention. If the usual price to live is definitely possible. Holidays are definitely expensive. It is very convenient to visit and live in the old town. Self-driving is not suitable and I don't know where the car can be parked.

0.14km from Chez ColetteThis enchantment all started with being picked up at Lyon airport by Michel our driver arranged by the hotel. He was a perfect gentleman. Took care of handling the luggage. We arrived around 10 pm in the evening and were greeted by Avner Sanclair. Boy is he a delight. We were tired so he took over and set everything up in our room. He made sure we were perfectly settled. We had a beautiful junior suite with magnificent views. Unfortunately the shower was not one we could walk into. He took me to another and with my approval arranged to have us moved the next day. We needed some clothes that got wet at the airport pressed. Avner made sure we would get back in time for the next day. The next morning Anne Christensen Assistant General Manager, who remembered us from a prior visit three years earlier arranged us to move to even a nicer suite. Their largest with incredible views and a real walk in shower. I was happy to pay the difference. All the staff and I mean ALL the staff have been wonderful and truly caring. Nothing is too much trouble. I had one of the greatest massages anywhere. Alexandra was amazing for the whole two hours. I have arranged for another massage with her. She accommodated me for my next massage. I did have my second massage with Alexandra. It was as great as the first. Thank you. We travel a lot around the globe. I actually prefer the toilet to be separate. That allows my wife access to the bath and me to use the toilet. Or vice versa. The concierge Gerald Martin-Cocher has been very helpful. His help and guidance started months ago when I reached out for ideas of restaurants and activities. Nicolas, another concierge who was extremely helpful. I wanted to order some Fleur du Thym from the place that it was made in Provence. I wanted it shipped to London, our next stop. He took care of it even though it took a while and quite a bit of patience and multiple phone calls. He got it done, with a smile. All the staff here are really caring and helpful. Don’t be afraid to ask for something. Your wish is their command. It is perched high on a hill overlooking old town. Very easy to get to wherever you like. The grounds and interior pictures are beautiful. I cannot recommend the whole experience enough.
0.21km from Chez ColetteLovely hotel located in the old town of Lyon (Vieux Lyon). I stayed here for 2 nights and was very happy with everything. CHECK IN: I booked via Booking.com and my confirmation said that because of the time and day of my arrival (after 10pm on a Sunday), the reception will be closed. In such cases, the hotel has an agreement with the College Hotel across the road so I had to check in and get my keys there, which was totally fine. I was given a key to the door to the left of the reception (not the main door) and a key for my room. THE ROOM: very comfortable and clean. I was in room 221. Note that there is no lift in the hotel and there is a round staircase to go up so careful if you have large baggage, but it's not a big deal really so not to worry. In my room, I had a double bed, a TV, a small table and a chair, and a toilet and shower in the bathroom. My window was facing a quiet street, which was lovely. The bathroom had a good small hairdryer provided (I had my own packed with me just in case but did not need it in the end). The room gets serviced so I got clean bed linen and towels. There is no kettle, fridge or cooker in my room but I did not really need those. LOCATION: the old town has plenty of shops as well as cafes and restaurants. There is a small local shop right outside the hotel so you can buy some basic foods and snacks if you wish. The hotel is also very near a Metro station which takes you to the city centre. There is also a funicular at the same station that will take you up to the hill from where you can see the entire city and the Alps. WIFI: sign in is instructed upon check in. You just use your room number and a given password. Signal was excellent. Overall, highly recommend this place if you wish to explore Lyon :) It's decently priced and in a convenient and beautiful location.
0.26km from Chez ColettePurposefully hardening back to earlier times, of junior high school days and friends, games and books, with “lockers” in one’s room, the College Hotel in Vieille Lyon is actually rather charming. Best of all is it’s location, a short walking distance from restaurants, shops, and sights. The rooms are pleasant but small, with limited storage. Decor is rather starkly white and simple, again like a boarding school one just moved in to and didn’t “personalize” yet. The coffee pot isn’t a coffee pot at all, but it is an electric kettle, with a couple small packets of instant coffee and tea not always replenished when the room is made up. Breakfast is available downstairs, in a lovely room off the lobby, and there is a terrace where you can sit and eat if you buy a take-out for lunch or dinner. Courteous staff are always happy to assist. The location is what really sells this hotel. The rest is fairly average. Some things to consider: If you are mobility impaired, make sure you ask about the bath/shower size—ours was all-in-one, almost a jacuzzi size, but was deep (the rim several inches above my knee when standing next to the tub) and difficult to get in and out of even without mobility issues. The location is perfect if you don’t have walking issues. If you have problems with cobbles, uneven streets, need a walker or wheelchair, you may want to stay in a different area of Lyon. When walking around the old town, flats or tennis type shoes are in order— heels are not!
0.36km from Chez ColetteHaving recently returned from our trip to Lyon with a group of friends and staying at Phoenix hotel I would like to share our experience at the hotel. The hotel was generally ok and so were the rooms. Our issues were mostly with the staff and other functional things such as AC in rooms and WiFi. . Upon our arrival, 4 ladies and 4 young girls, there were two people at the reception and neither one of them looked up to greet us or check us in the rooms until we asked them to. Again no further assistance or greeting! This happened to our other friends who also checked in later on in the day. The breakfast was very poor in selection and quality and dining area was closed at 10am. Our younger girls would leave early in the mornings and us ladies would stay for a coffee. The staff in the dining area were unsmiling and very rude, never said good morning to us and gave us bad looks until we would leave. One morning, way before closing time, they started picking up the breakfast buffet and literally took away the oranges and machine while my friend was making juice! The waitress went to complain to the reception manager of the time, who came to ask us to leave and we got into an argument! They also turned off the WiFi so we wouldn’t have connection, even though that was a problem throughout our stay. The hotel manager was not there that day but the next morning when she was, the waitresses all said good morning to us. The only staff members that were a bit more helpful were the men. This whole situation made our stay very uncomfortable and tiring! I don’t think that this is a way to treat guests, especially ones with young kids, who don’t know French and would appreciate more assistance...that we never got!!

0.43km from Chez ColetteThis is a reasonably priced hotel perfectly located between Vieux Lyon and the bar district at Presqu'ile. The rooms are small but there is everything one needs for a comfortable stay - good internet connection, comfortable bed and a shower that works well. The front desk staff is very personable and speaks reasonably well english. We had trouble with our rental car and Evan from the front desk really made a difference by helping us out calling the car company several times on our behalf to get assistance. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

0.44km from Chez ColetteNice sleeping, perfect location, high quality room. We enjoyed the stay in Lyon and the hotel made it better. It is located in the middle of the city, easily to visit everything just walking. Full services for kitchen and bathroom.

0.49km from Chez ColetteSpotless and comfortable rooms in a great location- perfect to walk to grab the subway or walk right over the bridge into old Lyon and to see tourist sights. Hosts were extremely nice and helpful. Nice breakfast for a reasonable price. If you cannot walk up at least 4 flights of stairs with your suitcase do not book here. This was not a problem for us but it may be for others. The other issue was it was extremely hot. We were provided a fan which was nice but the area around the hotel was extremely noisy so between the heat and the noise not a lot of sleep was had. We were there during world cup so that may have attributed to the noise. I would stay here again but perhaps not in the summertime. As a side note- they were experiencing higher than normal temperatures when we were there.

0.54km from Chez ColetteIt was better than I expect!!! I am completely surprised of it's lovely lobby and room interior. Plus the free daily bottled water, the provided Kettle and lovely breakfast buffet. The room smells so good. When booking, ask the 5th high floor since it got a great view of the Basilica especially at night since it is lighted. More than 2 nights stay you will get a nice gift. The hotel is 10 minutes leisurely walk to Bellecour and good walk to the modern cable pedestrian bridge that leads to other side of the river where another Old Town exist and train that goes up to the Basilica Notre Dame. The reception staff Cecilia who is so awesome in answering all our questions, giving us good tips and even booking a taxi for us. Attached is her photo with my wife. Kudos also to Clara who is so helpful and went extra mile in looking out for our taxi since it was Sunday when we check out and all roads are closed. Kudos too to Chloe (not sure if I remember her name correctly but I know she wore braces) who help us made a hardcopy of our train ticket and also Sun Yi who handed the gift to us since we stay more than 2 nights.Show less
0.57km from Chez ColetteMy sister and I are just heading home following a short break from visiting family locally, ending our trip at this truly splendid hotel perched on the hill tops overlooking the old town of Lyon below with the city beyond, what amazing views. From the moment we arrived to the time we left I can honestly say that all the staff were truly exceptionally polite, attentive and engaging not to mention being totally professionally throughout in their immaculate uniforms. Clearly this is a very high end hotel, so you would expect such service, however many similar establishments I’ve stayed in have missed this mark. These folk though truly lived up to the 5 star billing as did the restaurant we ate in, the smaller of the two on site, a high end brasserie style you could say, where we enjoyed a lovely set menu at a reasonable price in such a location in my opinion. Excellent service once again. I had a garden view room (411) on the 4th floor, it was perfect, something of a modern spin on an Art Deco theme in some senses perhaps, I loved it. All soft drinks in the mini bar were free, the bathroom wonderful, including lovely smelling toiletries too. My only minuscule issue was there were only branded pencils in my room with the stationary but no pen oddly, I may have missed it! I would highly recommend a stay here, you have to indulge yourself once in a while. Incidentally my sister had a 4th floor suite overlooking the city with a fantastic views! Thanks to all the staff at this beautiful hotel for such a great stay.

3rd arr.La Part-Dieu
It was learned that Lyon’s old town was very difficult to park, and it was specifically designed as a landmark hotel in the new city. This hotel can be seen from afar, but it is not easy to find the hotel entrance and parking lot by car. Because the nearby road is under construction, it took three laps to find the hotel's small entrance. The parking lot is large, 25 euros a day. The hotel lobby is on the 32nd floor and the room is above the 33rd floor. The view is good and has its own characteristics. The room is small, it is fan-shaped, and two adults with a child sleep very crowded. The sanitation is very good, quiet, carpeted, not ventilated, the shower floor is a bit slippery, there is no place to dry clothes. The hotel has a restaurant, dinner is good, service is good. There is no bustling old town nearby, and there is a large public car park next to the food city not far from the hotel.

If you know me personally or meet me even in passing, you will learn that as a traveller there is absolutely nothing more that I love to do than give positive and raving reviews to my peers, family, colleagues and even my students. I find joy in the littlest of things and I love to give local businesses the support and ratings they truly deserve. Unfortunately for the first time, based on my experience at this hotel I have to offer otherwise. Please note, that if you are someone of colour, a couple of the receptionists will choose to NOT greet you despite your politeness. I almost felt as if I wasn’t welcome. It’s important to note that I currently live in France, and have been an expat professor in various countries including in Vietnam. Never have I ever received this reception in hospitality, and during my tenure in France I have never left a bad comment. Yet, during my stay I was truly disappointed and unfortunately appalled. This was particularly from a full time working receptionist named Marie who I would greet each day and would barely even follow up french étiquette by simply responding a “bonjour” or “bonsoir” even after I initiate. The hotel room space itself was nice, and the service I received across in Lyon in restaurants and stores whether big or small was amazing and friendly. But I must say the service at this hotel did not match at all for me. Yes, I’m sure there are others that didn’t have the same reception or level of service. I thought the same as I browsed through the lovely comments here, which in fact also encouraged me to book in the first place. But unfortunately I have to say despite my professionalism, my decorum, and overall politeness, they felt it was best not to send this energy or treatment my way. Highly disappointing and honestly hurtful to say the least to be on the receiving end of this. Hopefully I’ll still be able to see this comment in a few months, that way I will know that the hotel does indeed have some integrity and is striving to better this issue. To those reading please note that Although you have one experience it doesn’t mean that others are treated in a manner similar to you, unfortunately - which is sad to say.
6th arr.Parc de la Tête d'Or / Cité Internationale
The hotel is very well-located within easy walking distance to most of the sights and the Old Town. The front desk staff are friendly and genuine, in fact they were some of the most helpful we've encountered in France. The hotel feels modern with a young vibe. The eco-friendly concept is pretty cool and they have some unique features like the all-day snack bar, which we enjoyed very much. Room is quite simple and basic, and probably our least favourite thing about this hotel. The bed is comfy and wifi is fast - but that's about it. We didn't like the bathroom design (you can see through the toilet - no privacy at all) and it is very small. They avoid providing excessive plastic bottle toiletries (which is great) but to be honest it felt a bit too minimal. Also, we noticed wear and tear in many nooks and corners throughout the room (the toilet was leaky and made a lot of noise) and in the corridor...as well as places/things that look not very well-cleaned (e.g. the hairdryer is covered in fingerprints and dust). Given the current Covid-19 situation in France, that is not ideal. I'd expect a 4 star hotel to be almost "squeaky" clean (even if things are not brand new). Good spread at breakfast - it's not an indulgent buffet but there are good quality items, and the staff strive to replenish as quickly as possible when things run out. Overall it's a nice stay but there are some areas of improvement. We'd consider to return but only if we find a good rate.

Location is not as convenient compared to Gare Depart Dieu but it’s far cheaper. Checkin was fine, receptionist opened the garage for us since we booked for a parking spot. My husband asked one of the staff at the front desk to contact the hospital on his behalf, he was extremely kind and helpful, spent a lot of time waiting on the phone and got all the necessary information for my husband. The hotel is only two years old so everything is still new, clean and functional. The entrance to the garage has VERY tight corner. Got upgraded to a family room & it is very spacious. Stayed for one night before flying out and it was fine.

We spent a week here in November on a romantic getaway. We had chosen this hotel due to the pool and the fact that the hotel was brand new. After the first 3 days, I was actually looking at other hotels and thought about counting my losses and moving somewhere else (had booked a nonrefundable rate), but after a few days we decided to stay, and this was only due to one thing. A new general manager had arrived, and we felt that things started to improve. I am sure he will be able to make this hotel a great hotel, but I would wait to stay there for a few months until he has had the time to work his magic. Even though I feel the bad points will be improved, as we felt our points were heard, there are some problems I will need to mention if you have plans to stay here for the next few months. The breakfast – a clear disaster. They have a small buffet with lots of cakes. I know this is normal in Italy and this is an italian hotel, so this is what it is, but why the small dried out cheese tray with micro sized pieces that dries out in no time? The “hot” items you have to order. A great idea, that often at other places is executed to perfection, but here was a joke. The plates are not heated, and therefore the eggs are almost cold when served- But this is not the worst part. The breakfast chef simply can’t cook or don’t care at all. I had pancakes the first couple of days, the first morning they came out cold, not cold like they had been warm at one point, but refrigerator cold like 5c. Soo this this tells me 2 things – 1: A 5-star hotel that does not make the breakfast fresh? 2: Who in their right mind serves pancakes cold? The second day I had the Parma Ham with toast. The toast was not only the cheapest toast from a bag but I got the end part, which normally would be thrown away, furthermore the ham was cut in so trick slices that they were almost inedible. 3. day – I decided to try the pancakes once more. This time I thought I was on top og things and asked them beforehand to be served warm. Guess again – yes they came out stone cold. I then asked them to be heated. After a few minutes they came out again. This time the top one was somewhat heated, the bottom ones not. At this point with my husband sitting with his also cold eggs and cheap toast that came with his plate. We felt like we were at a cheap AI-Package holiday in Benidorm. The next days I opted for the buffet alone and the last day – even though we had breakfast included we decided to eat out. This is just bad business. Due to this we decided not to use any of the food outlets like room service or the inhouse restaurant. Why should I throw good money after bad? We had a drink one night, but for 20. euros pr drink I expect not to have to ask for a nibble to go with it. When you pay 20 euro there are some expectations on how it is served and what to expect to go with it. And the pricelist were just some laminated papers pieced together with a pin, more suited
2nd arr.La Presqu'ile
This hotel is a 5 minute walk from Lyon Perrache station, conveniently located between the new Lyon and the old town. The rooms are very well presented and even though we overlooked the street we had no issues with noise. The Bathroom is spacious and comes complete with toiletries, fresh towels daily and everything you will need for a short stay. The toilet is separate from the bathroom. There are coffee and tea making facilities plus complimentary bottles of water. Breakfast is adequate and varied, there was no shortage of anything. However what makes this hotel is the staff, so passionate about the town they will take time to show you where to go on the map, give advice on best times and places to avoid. They will recommend restaurants, exhibitions and museums. Fabulous front of house staff.
