Dining

LE SILK RESTAURANT
In the 70s-inspired interiors of this popular Lyon restaurant, or on its summer terrace, taste top quality brasserie dishes like steak tartare accompanied by fine French wines. An ideal hotel restaurant in Lyon for lunch or dinner any day of the year.
LES TROIS DOMES
Our panoramic Michelin-starred Lyon restaurant, with famed chef Christian Lherm , is 'the' spot for fine dining in Lyon. Select gastro dishes à la carte - perhaps avocado and shrimp mille-feuille or sweetbreads - while feasting on exceptional river views.
LE MELHOR
Sip signature cocktails at this chic, cozy Lyon bar with stirring views over Lyon. The drinks menu - available on iPad - ranges from a sherry aperitif to a fine cognac or single malt whisky. Live music enlivens Friday and Saturday nights.
LIGHT BAR
Pop into this contemporary lobby bar and summer terrace for a fresh pastry, informal lunch meeting, afternoon tea or glass of wine by the fire. Indulge in champagne paired with local Bernachon chocolate: scrumptious. Live music Wednesdays.

a smart but over-priced hotel

This is without doubt a nice hotel to look at once you are inside. Unless you get it as part of a package deal, it is ridiculously over-priced both to stay in and to dine at. 26 Euros for breakfast!!

Upscale Hotel, Too Much Maid Service & Bleach

The hotel is very modern and upscale.The staff is very friendly, helpful, on point, and available 24hrs. The restaurant is very pricey so we walked around the corner to a street of restaurants instead. The view from the hotel restaurant upstairs was beautiful. The view of the river from our room was great. The room had a safe that only uses credit cards to open and close but it did not work. The light on the desk did not work and made it difficult to work on our laptop and papers. Laundry service is very expensive. The maids come in twice a day and everything smells of heavy bleach. We did not know there was room service until we were on our way out, no one ever left a menu in our room. The hotel definitely has a five star appeal, the room was 4 star, and the overbleached linens and overbearing maids made us homesick. The location was great.

There was a street around the corner on the square filled with many great little restaurants. Also we realized we did not need a rental car because everything was in walking distance which was great because parking at the hotel is about $30/night!
