Positive Reviews

Meticulously clean with great river views.

Hotel Sofitel Lyon Bellecour truly lives up to its reputation as an oasis in the city. The rooms are meticulously clean, and take luxury to another level with their elegant décor, comfy king-sized beds, Hermes toiletries, and motorized blinds. Contemporary rooms sport a living room and offer great views of River Rhone.

Authentic, personal customer service.

The staff here has built a reputation as being exceptionally warm, with everybody from the concierge to the hotel manager being always eager to please. Unlike the case with many large hotels, the check in and check out process is fast and efficient.

Perfect location.

The central location of the hotel means that many points of interest are close by. The main square is a few minutes' walk away while old town and the shopping district are nearby.

Negative Reviews

Rooms showing their age.

Some guests have reported that the rooms here are rather small and are beginning to show their age. Some of the doors are outdated and the card keys don't work properly.

Junior suites not well kept.

The hotel's has junior suites that offer good views of River Rhone. Some guests, however, have reported that no hot water is provided in these suites while the furniture is outmoded.

Can be noisy at times.

While the central location of Hotel Sofitel Lyon Bellecour is a big advantage when it comes to exploring Lyon and various points of interest, this unfortunately means that it can get noisy which can be distracting for guests.
