Positive Reviews

Lookout Over Lyon

Situated on top of the Fourviere Hill, this hotel not only has a magnificent location in Vieux Lyon, but also boasts some of the best views of the city. To reach the main part of the historic district, guests can walk or take a three-minute funicular ride down. From there, you can reach most major sights, great restaurants, and unique boutiques on foot. Guests loved the hotel's immediate area because it is quiet, as there are no main roads nearby.

Modern Monastery

This is definitely a unique hotel, housed in what used to be a former convent. The building has been nicely remodelled and provides a chic mix of the old with the new. The lobby looks almost like a church, and is the first thing that guests notice, and the rooms are described as modern minimalist. You'll also find lots of interesting art work throughout the property.

Place to Relax

Make sure to take a trip to the spa. Guests loved the onsite wellness facilities, especially the steam room, Jacuzzi, and the large pools. The in-room walk-in shower was also a delight after a long day.

Negative Reviews

Long Climb

Keep in mind that the hotel is situated on top of a tall hill. While you can use the funicular to go up or down, guests warn that it does not operate 24-hours a day. If you're planning on coming home late, you may have a steep climb back up, or you can also take a taxi.

Weak Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi is not the best. Guests say the Internet was quite slow in their rooms, but much better near the reception.

Service In Training?

Service could be improved. Guests repeatedly say that the staff seems inexperienced.
