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.

8/10 Very good

The best part about this hotel was the excellent service. The staff was really helpful and all requests were acted on immediately. The location is also perfect for a visit to Lyon. The only issue with the hotel is the that rooms are in need of some renovations and upgrades. If/when they upgrade, this has the potential to be the best hotel in Lyon

10/10 Exceptional

This hotel was perfect for me and my 20s something daughter. Its location and proximity to Vieux Lyon, The basilica, and the restaurants/bars was perfect. The staff was helpful and took the time to help us decide where to go and what to see. Best of all, the staff really seems to love Lyon and wanted to show it off. Great stay
