        Hotel Sofitel Lyon Bellecour Reviews

        Guest reviews are submitted by our customers after their stay at Hotel Sofitel Lyon Bellecour

        Individual guest reviews

        • Couple
          10.0

          quality of the room; staff efficiency and hospitality; location; food

          computer service unavailable in business center; unpleasant smell from hairdresser's salon on the ground floor

        • Couple
          9.6

          The restaurant Le 3 Domes was amazing. The staff were knowledgable, attentive and the food was brilliant. The rooms were spacious, tidy, well- equipted and comfortable. The bed was very very comfortable.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Good location for walking to old town, shops and cycling to Parc. Excellent staff and comfortable large room.

        • Single
          9.6

          The kindness of the staff, the Spa and the Brasserie. And also the comfort of the superior room which I booked.

          The cost of 5 euros for just 15 minutes of internet through the Business Center. Exaggerated!

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Top notch service with well-appointed room. Free Minibar and WiFi were nice touches. Good value for what I paid through Booked.net, but their normal rates are much higher.

          The exterior of the hotel is sort of 1960's-vintage urban renewal, I.E., ugly, and there was some construction going on around the hotel that made it inconvenient to walk in/out.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          As every year, passing Lyon for a holiday in the Povence, we enjoy our two days in this superb hotel. Very friendly and correct staff, superb beds, clean and luxurious. Not once disturbed in our room. Perfect and thanks, we'll come back next year !

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The attitude of the Hotel Staff and the location

          The staff looks pale and sick because of the brown uniforms!

        • Single
          8.8

          The Amenity is Hermes, really nice location.

          The Bar upstairs is really noisy at night, hard to sleep.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          the pleasant staff and comfortable beds

          there was a slighyly musty smell in the halls

        • Single
          7.8

          Room and hotel nicely furnished. Personel very attentive. Central location.

          Room nicely furnished but small. Air conditioning making an awful noise which should not happen at this price (room list price = €380). Overall hotel is overpriced (breakfast = 25 € - enjoy the old Lyon or pl. Bellecour for breakfast @ 10/12€)

        • Couple
          6.6

          The bed in our room was comfortable and I like the Bose system and docking station for our ipod in the bedroom.

          Room quite small, carpets need replacing, hair dryer in the bathroom was terrible. Overall didn't look like a 5 star room to me. The hotel lobby and bar were nice but the room disappointing.

        • Single
          7.0

          The nice view of the bar on the 8th floor

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The very courteous and caring concierges at the door on arrival unloading the car, taking care of the luggage diligently and assuring that the car would be parked securley and safely.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Hotel staff is really excellent. The beds are incredible, never seen something like that. Good location.

        • Couple
          8.8

          I like the amenities, shower and the bed. Bed is extremely comfortable, that's why I come to Sofitel

          I didn't like the breakfast. The breakfast room is very nice, but breakfast choices for Sofitel is poor
