No A/C

Granted it was unseasonably warm for October but the air conditioning was turned off in the hotel and it was unpleasantly warm. Outside air temperature during the day hit 77 and it was probably warmer in the room. You could open the windows but it was noisy outside. Its a nice hotel with friendly staff and a good location but this one problem kept it from getting 5 stars.

Great location

We stayed there for our honeymoon, was a great room and an amazing location. Not too pricey. Only complaint is that wifi didn't work in the room and when we asked to have it fixed, were more or less blown off and it was never dealt with. Not the biggest deal, but it's nice to stay in places that deal with problems...

very nice

this is an excellent hotel, situated right in the center of Lyon, and easy walking distance to the historic center. the rooms are comfortable, the food good. i'd highly recommend staying here, though the price is a bit high. it is well worth it. perhaps the best place in Lyon.

Perfect Location for Special Hotel

Located on Place Bellecour, the Hotel Le Royal Lyon is near the middle of Presque L'Ilse with a short walk to Vieux Lyon, close to the funicular station, and close to the Rhone River.. Also, a metro stop is in the Place. The hotel itself is a well cared for grand dame. Lovely public spaces are decorated in blue and white. Our spacious standard room had 2 huge double window, red velvet on white wall coverings, and a modern stone tiled bathroom. The staff was most helpfully and accommodating, if a little formal. Breakfast was worth getting at the hotel.

The Gare du Perache station, one of the TGV bullet train stations in Lyon, is very close to the hotel, and only two metro stops away on the A line.

Lovely Lyon

Hotel staff was great; lent us an umbrella, told us how to get around. It's in a great location with a very easy walk to Vieux Lyon and the former silk weavers' district.

Perfect Lyon

I was in town for business, but what an extraordinary delight to see Lyon and stay in such a beautiful property as well. Prime location to see the quaint yet historic area of the city. I venture to stay again.

Lyon is known for the chefs that come from its culinary school, more so than the Cordon Bleu in Paris. You will rarely go wrong when dining in Lyon.
