Radisson Blu Hotel Lyon4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed at the radisson after a few exhausting weeks of travel and needed somewhere quiet to rest before an early train trip the next day. After a small problem with the air conditioning was fixed by the super friendly staff, we settled in for one of the best sleeps of our whole trip! It was a clean and spacious room and there were a few english channels on the tv. Top tip: there is a free shuttle that will take you to the station (we were overloaded with luggage and couldnt make the relatively short walk!)
Very good price/quality relation. Recently refurbished in Feb 2017. Hotel had a very good location, close to shopping mall & restaurants. Impressive reception area looking up in the Tower. Rooms had a very efficient lay-out. Good night sleep. Breakfast was very good with magnificent view across the city of Lyon. Certainly recommendable hotel. An excellent start of our family holiday.
The hotel occupies the last few floors of a tower giving a stunning view of the city Location is central and just few minutes walk from a big shopping mall that includes a carrefour, primark, and many restaurants. The rooms are small but comfortable. The bathroom is too small and very basic. What brings the review for this hotel down is the A/C. The room temperature is high and the A/C could not be adjusted. The staff tried to help by moving us to another room which was better but still not comfortable enough to sleep so next morning we were offered another room "again". The third room was better with comfortable temperature. Another kind of unacceptable thing was the complementary water bottles that are not replaced daily like all the other hotels. When I asked the receptionist she said "with your room type you get water bottle upon arrival only" !!! Breakfast buffet was small and lack variation especially if you don't eat meat. I would still recommend this hotel but not in the summer.
Where can we start? This radisson is definitely an amazing building in Lyon. The hotel is located ob the top of le crayon, ( the pencil) and you have a fantastic view. But it is much more, a hotel can offer the best view but what realky made the difference apart from having the FANTASTIC ROOM UN 39! - The reception- we decided not ro book on the platforms, but called after a ling journey! Thank you for eacxepting us and being of high efficirncy and kindness. - We left the car at a parking, and walked there. - Reception was - feeling at home, a smile, highly efficient- that's the face of what I knew from Blagnac!!! Thank you for this room, which is absolutely great ( not big!), prtfectly equipped, very clean, no loud clim, we watched the sun going down and we could not- but be happy! - Room service was delicious! Go for it: We ordered 2 dishes! Wonderful! Dessert great. Waiter of the same kindness! - Great slepp, no noise! - Breakfast on floor 32: All what you love, very kind staff! Thanx to all! - Fresh juice, fresh omelettes, and this all overlooking the city! Good mixture of tourists, not loud, we loved rhe variety and even ariving late: We got all we asked for! A smamm remark here: The breakfast area is too small, if the staff were not so efficient, you would have to wait: But again- they do great! - We left the car at the station, and ready for a walk... but the receptionist -just came out and drove us there! What a blessing! A hotel is a building - with more or less infrastructure. But a hotel has a soul! This is the people, the managment that make it UNIQUE, WARM, WIRTH EVERY SINGLE STAR! You make it a great hotel! We do thank you and we can but recommend this hotel to all: Families, business, Couples, Singles We will come back, and thanxx to Simon, Cyrille , Marie, Didier and all the staff!
On requesting adjustment of air conditioning hotel was unable to resolve problem in a timely manner. To hot! Unable to sleep. Offered an other room after four requests over the day ( morning to 1015pm).Unsatisfactory!
Since they refurbished this place a few years back it's almost brand new. The decor and facilities/amenities are all what you would expect from a Hilton brand hotel. Even the TV channel lineup and the Nespresso machines were perfect. Safes are full size, plenty of space, spotless room. As you can see from my other reviews I'm not an easy person to please and I was dreading this stay because of a disastrous week here about a decade ago when it was looking very tired and 2 star at best. The contrast with today is remarkable and this is absolutely my new 'go-to' first choice for Lyon business stays. Views at breakfast are breathtaking too. If I had to find a fault it's that the breakfast table setup between covers seemed to be a little slow and I was kept waiting a my the checkin desk while staff shuffled paperwork for a few minutes, and the outside ground floor around the entrance is shabby and unappealing (but next to the best shopping mall in Lyon) but nothing horrific. Top marks and a surprise from me.
I went there three times and everything was fine. The location is central, very near the centre and near subways. Also not far from the highway if you need to move with the car. There is a parking underground but it is charged and not so cheap. For the rest it is nice and interesting, it occupies the last floors of a tower, there is a quick dedicated lift to reach the lobby in one shot from the ground floor and another lift to reach the rooms. It is very quiet and clean. The place for breakfast is not too big but many tables are near the window so you can have a good breakfast while enjoying the outstanding view of the city. A must see in Lyon
Location-the hotel IS the centerpoint Parking-good for 1960 models (don't bring your SUV) Close to the railway Fantastic view from the bar, restaurant and the room (make shure y are above the reception in 32th) Lovely bar (32th floor) Good service Nice breakfast The hotel, built 1977-is lovely re-decorated But the entry from the garage is xz@&!!/!! Recommended.
Went to Lyon for a conference which was also held at this hotel. The location is excellent, right in the center of the city, about 200 m from the railway station. The hotel is also within a nice walking distance from the old town. The facilities are pretty new and the room was in excellent shape. This hotel resides in the top floors of the building, so there is a lovely view over the city from every room. The rooms are quiet and cosy, I did not hear any noises during the night. This is also a very nice hotel for conferences and business meetings. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay again!
Stayed at the Blu not to far from the rail station. Outstanding views of the city as most of the room are at 20 stories or higher. Restaurant for breakfast was excellent and had a wide variety and selection. All fresh and wonderful. Do not forget the candy dish in the lobby and the gummy bears and marshmallows.
