Our stay at the Sofitel Lyon was great! Rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable, and towels were oversized and very plush. The staff was amazing! The concierge made dinner reservations for us both evenings at local cafes/restaurants within walking distance. The food was incredible along with the wines. Thank you for making our stay in Lyon so memorable. We will definitely stay here again when in Lyon.

This must have been amazing in the 1980s. Unfortunately, not much has changed since then. The facilities are very old and not well-maintained. Even the TV system is outdated, has a coupe of channels and does not allow to connect to Netflix or Amazon.

Front desk staff was super. House keeping lax. First room with broken AC. The upgrade room was tired, need update. It's a 4 or 3.5 star hotel. Definitely not 5 star!!

Liked it!
The staff at the Sofitel was terrific and our room was comfortable. The bed was amazing with crisp white bedding! Breakfast was included in our room rate and it was very good! The the hotel could use some updating here and there. The tile in our bathroom was chipped and the table by our window was old and wobbly. The biggest drawback for me was lack of electrical outlets, especially in the bathroom. The hair dryer was attached to the wall and there wasn't one outlet to use for a curling iron. One other disappointment was that we had dinner in the dining room on our last night. The service was slow and the food was expensive and disappointing. The view from the restaurant, however, is wonderful.
