Radisson Blu Hotel Lyon4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
An impressive building, inside and out, with stunning views over the city from the 32nd floor restaurant and bar. A little corporate, but the slick service needs to cater for the occasional tourist that walks in, as the reception staff seemed all too keen to ignore anyone not entirely dressed for the occasion. One could stand at reception in jeans and a ski coat for some time, whilst more obvious business guests were attended to in preference.
The hotel is convenient to the railway station and to Les Halles Lyon Paul Bocuse, but that's about it. The hotel rooms are very small but decent, but the set up is very odd indeed. If you want a king size bed you get a small bathroom with only a shower and no tub. If you want a room that has a bathroom with a tub/shower, you can only get a room with two twin beds. That's the set up. The hotel is on the 32nd to 39th floor of the building, which is fine, but because it is an old "atrium" style hotel the noise from the 32nd floor lobby goes right up to the rooms that open out to corridors that ring the open atrium. A higher floor (to which we were moved after inquiring because of the noise) is quieter. The other issue was check-in. We were, unfortunately, trying to check in right behind about 100+ guests there for a conference who all arrived at the same time on a couple of buses. Instead of having a separate check-in for the conference attendees, the hotel management just had everyone line up in one of two lines with conference attendees and regular guest all mixed together. As a result it took us over an hour to check in. Very poorly managed. The next morning after breakfast when we went to get some change at the front desk there was nobody there! I could hear them all in a back room chatting! No one came out for quite some time. Further example of poor management. One positive: the breakfast buffet which came with our room was extensive and was good. Overall we were glad to only have a one night stay at this hotel. Will not stay there again.
Nice building, spectacular view, perfect service, nice location close station Part -Dieu and shopping centre. Happy to be there thanks friendly staff, clean a big room, optimal for business travellers
the view from the room is just incredible. everything are made to make you spend a very good moment. Close from the train station, it's very easy to get there and the people sems so happy to see you every time you come. I love this place.
The Radisson Blu is conveniently located at a 500 meter walk from the main railway station (it is not a very inspiring walk, and the hotel does actually have a free shuttle service as we found out when we left). So, convenient but not in an exciting part of town - the historic centre of Lyon is a 15 minute taxi ride away. But the views from this hotel are spectacular. Standard rooms are basic but very comfortable. Service is excellent: attentive, friendly and anticipating. We definitely enjoyed the restaurant "Celest" (see separate entry) and would come back here for the convenience, views and food.
The hotel's location is close to the train station. You can easily access all the touristic attractions by public transportation. The hotel itself is very attractive and beautiful. The staff was very helpful and kind. And the view from the room was outstanding. Breakfast was complete and delicious as well. Take enough time to enjoy it. However, I would say it was a little too pricey even tho it was the New Year's Eve. Moreover, we spent the New Year's Eve in a bar. We ordered champagne 11.45 PM, but it arrived only 00.04 AM. We were very disappointed that we were not able to raise a glass of champagne (which was by the way very expensive) at midnight. We even didn't drink it anymore. I would recommend this hotel, however, if you are there on the New Year's Eve, be careful with you midnight order.
This is definitely a five star hotel with spectacular views across the city. The hotel is let down by the fact that reception is on the 34th floor and this is not made clear on the ground floor. We waited with several other guests at the concierges desk for some time before a staff member wandered past and informed us that we needed to go to the 34th floor to check in.
What an incredible stay, at the heart of Lyon, near railway station, at the top of one of the highest Towers of Lyon. Amazing view from any parts of the hotel, bedrooms, bar, restaurant. Comfortable bedrooms, professional service, tasty food. A unique place to enjoy Lyon.
This hotel is located a 10 minute walk from Lyon train station. It is not close to the main tourist attractions however has a street car stop right out front so its reasonably easy to get around and the La Part-Dieu shopping centre is next door if you want to do any shopping-mall shopping. The building itself is very tall and has nice views. Being out of the main hub there are limited restaurant options nearby for evening meals. The Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse is a couple of blocks away from the hotel and we highly recommend a visit here during the day. It is a fabulous indoor foodies market with an amazing variety of stalls with beautifully presented gourmet delights. Great for photos. The little bar near the grocery store was ideal for a snack and sold reasonably priced wine by the glass. Our room did not have a refrigerator which we found very inconvenient. When we complained to the staff our mini bar was not cold they explained to us that it was only a 'cooler'. Unfortunately it did not even 'cool' the drinks and was not suitable to store medication that needed refrigeration. We both caught and scratched our legs on the luggage stand at the end of the bed which had sharp corners. A hotel probably more suitable for a quick business trip than for holiday makers.
Hotel located not far from train station which is convenient if you come by speed tram from the airport (it takes approx. 30 min and costs 15.9 euro). There's a big shopping mall next to the hotel including Galleries Lafayette. The hotel is located on the floors 32-39 in the tower, so you won't miss a fantastic view on the city and Alps from any room. Rooms are not very big but comfy and recently renovated. Every area is very clean and staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Restaurant also offers great view and the food is delicious with local touch. Breakfast quality was good but variety was a bit limited. Overall, great experience.
