The best possible location between the Rhone and the Soane, surrounded by lovely shops and many restaurants. Lovely retro decoration in the rooms and bathrooms. Very clean and a house perfume I would like to have at home myself. Friendly staff, always helpfull. A nice plus: the free aperitivo. It's a nice daily welcome after a day out walking and sightseeing. We felt at home.

Interesting hotel with quirky aspects. Only stayed overnight but liked the idea we could go to the local bakery and bring our breakfast back to the hotel to eat in reception. Coffee machine there and free water. The evening happy hour was a surprise with local titbits & wine. Room large and clean.

A great little quirky hotel in a great location. Very friendly staff who were very accommodating for our 8 month old baby. Happy hour with drinks and local produce is a great idea. Thankyou Sebastian for a great stay!

Right in the middle of everything, location was amazing, I could walk to everything I wanted to see! 6th floor room was super-cheap for a reason - roofline made 1/2 the room unusable and showering was very difficult. Also, the elevator only goes to the 5th floor = had to walk a flight up after getting off the lift. If you're fit, and only need a place to sleep this is the room for you! AC worked really well though and everything was very clean. Breakfast and snacks/drink in afternoon were nice.

Great location, cosy room, very clean... And very Lyonnais! Amazing!! I would really recommend you to stay at the Silky Hotel. I will go back there, definitely. The staff is also very friendly, always happy to help.

Boutique hotel, with very friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us to make our stay enjoyable. Room and en suite were spacious and clean. Breakfast was plentiful with a happy and helpful member of staff servicing the tables and replenishing the food which was self service. The hotel was ideally situated in Lyon and easy to get to all the attractions and restaurants we wanted to visit. The only downside was the noise of the air conditioning unit but we were assured this was a temporary problem and repairs were in hand. Would definitely go back to stay there.

This hotel is fabulous. The staff are friendly, speak English and are really charming and genuine. My partner and I have stayed at many hotels, but this one was perfect in all the most important respects. Firstly the staff, particularly Sébastien. Secondly the enormous and comfortable bed. Thirdly the fact that our dog was made welcome. Fourthly, the hotel is modern, clean and central, yet in an old silk factory! I highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel Silky is a nice hotel in an absolutely perfect location. It is right in the middle of Presquille, which means it’s surrounded by shopping and restaurants. It’s also located about a 1 minute walk from the nearest Metro station – “Cordelier”. Other positive things about the hotel are the helpful friendly staff and the happy hour wine and snacks at 6 PM. There are a few negatives as well. We took a superior double room. It was large but not very well designed. There were no shelves or drawers to put our belongings. Except for a small desk, there were only tiny little tables to put a few things on. Also, the breakfast room was in the basement, with a tight spiral staircase to get down into it. Access to the breakfast room is impossible for anyone with mobility restrictions.

Stayed one night recently in a single room. Room size typical - neither small nor large by European standards. Didn't notice much street noise. Conveniently located to all major sights. Didn't take advantage of it, but they have happy hour snacks & drinks in the lobby. Also free bottled water in the lobby for guests. Free Wi-Fi worked well. Breakfast was decent - pastries, fruit, cereal, etc.

This hotel is a best bet for location and quality of the hotel. It is fairly basic but had everything we needed. The staff were outstandingly helpful and they provide a full breakfast and a happy hour wine and cheese spread that is above and beyond. Nothing but happy memories even when we got the final bill. Stay there.
