Concierge was extremely helpful
Roger, au3 night romance trip

Great location but a facelift would help
The hotel is very conveniently located by the riverside, close to Bellecour Square and to all the major sights of Lyon, as well as within walking distance of the train station. The service was helpful, professional and friendly throughout our stay. Our room was on the small side, but perfectly comfortable, with a lovely large bed and good bathroom. The hotel feels a bit old and in need of a renovation, but nothing that really affected our comfort, except the lifts being small and slow.

Amazing stay in Lyon

Abdulrahman, ie3 night business trip
Very good 8.0
excellent service and location
Excellent service, really comfortable bed and great location, but the hotel is in need for renovations. Our room door showed so many signs of forced break ins, we were a little worried about security.

Perfect place for a Lyon visit
We visited Lyon for three days as a quick adventure in the midst of a 2-week stay in Paris. The Sofitel was an excellent choice because it's perfectly located in the old city but it's a modern and comfortable hotel. Nice room that seemed recently renovated, excellent breakfast buffet, outstanding service from a hotel-wide staff of charming and helpful people, and check out the roof-top cocktail lounge with views of the city.
