Central location and friendly staff. The bed could have been a bit more comfortable.
great location. Perfect for exploring lyon!
We stayed only one night and it was perfect! We loved the location. Parking is 200mts far from the Hotel. Very clean. Quite big rooms. Toilett separated from the shower and sink. Bathroom stuff complete (shampoo, aconditioner etc). The staff speaks english. Stairs carpets a little bit old.
Location is excellent and gives the possibility to investigate the old Lyon. Hotel is also close to metro
location and a very large bed ,our room was on a corner so we had great views carpet very worn on stairs,and the price of breakfast a bit high.
The Location, the staff, the room, the price The street is loud at night, so remember earplugs
Location. Good bathroom facilities. Helpful staff. Lift was temperamental. Carpet getting shabby.
excellent central location gave easy walking access to most tourist sites
Proximity to the city centre, all shops and sights within easy walking distance. Spacious room. Quiet, room was at the back of the hotel so no nuisance from traffic noise. Not really any negative points except to say some might find the choice at breakfast limited, and might not appreciate to have a room with no view. But then one doesn't go to Lyon to stay in the hotel all day!
Cool bedroom are a must, these were good
Really good in every terms. I am thinking to go there again i the near future
the room, 716, was under the restaurant, and very very noisy until 1 o clock in the morning.
really pleasant staff and magnificiant lobby. great location for shopping in this nice city. really clean rooms. bedrooms could need a little style refreshment.
There was renovation work in the hotel. We could mot sleep because of the noise .That is why we have stayed only one night instead of 10 nights
Very attent personnel, excellent panaramic view on the city at breakfast and bar. Even at breakfast, i was being served pasteries and coffee without having to stand up...excellent service. no welnesscenter to relax after a busy working day.
Very handy for walking and within the areas of interest and to Gare Perrache (railway station).Sofitel is above average standard and within expectation for a good four star hotel. Hotel bistro was very good indeed. The breakfast view area over the city was excellent however the prepared fruit selection and sometimes quality was not as good as expected though still overall breakfast very good.
The nice view of the bar on the 8th floor
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.
Hotel staff is really excellent. The beds are incredible, never seen something like that. Good location. Nothing.
Hotel staff was great! Run down, dirty room with worn furniture, mildew in shower. Not at all up to Sofitel standards
Helpful staff Having to pay a €20 supplement for a river - facing view
We loved the decor in the hotel especially the bar which is spectacular. Although we had booked a superior room we were given the smallest, most out of the way room in the hotel. The attitude of the hotel staff was far from helpful or friendly.
I wonder why for 2 consecutive days, the shampoo and soap were not replaced. I needed to ask them before I can have it.
The room was beautiful, the bed was incredibly comfy, and the rest of the hotel was lovely too. Staff are very friendly and the location is brilliant - perfect for a city break.
I stayed at hotel with a friend of mine. I had given my credit card information when I booked a room (16th of Nov.). We were asked to pay at information desk at hotel and my friend paid by her credit card. When I checked my credit card payment I saw that the room rate of 340 Euro was also taken from me. I have written to the hotel and waiting for reply.
I was supprized that my reservation was canceeled when I arrived, but I maneged to find another one
The staff were helpful beyond expectation. The location is fantastic. We had a corner room and the view from every window was stunning. The decor is very stylish and the hotel has wonderful little rooms to sit and enjoy tea/cpfee or just to read or chat. nothing
Excellent room accomations. Outstanding decor. Pleasant staf. No.
Comfortable, welcolming, clean, proximity to great sites and restaurants in Lyon I resent paying extra for wi fi!
The hotel is well located and is excellent.
Staff was great and very accomidating Keyed lock to room was difficult to operate for my wife.
The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Especially the guy who worked there on my second night's stay. He had excellant English. He provided me with the dial out code I needed to phone home to my country of origin. It is a good location just 5 min walk form Gare de Perrache. Having to remember 4 digit code. An electronic key-card might have been more preferable.
size of the rooms, secure parking very poor air circulation in the building causing unpleasant smell and poor first impression until you open all the windows in your room and keep them open all the time. Hard to imagine staying there during cold season.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
The room was sunny and clean No elevators and I was on the 5th floor, no shampoo in the room, No internet
Staff was very kind and helpful. Room was smaller than expected. 2 people cannot share a full size bed. Things you expect to receive (shampoo, soap, etc.) were missing.
Good location. The bathroom did not have a door. We were travelling with older children, so it was very uncomfortable. The room was quite shabby, and the door looked like it had been knocked down in the past. The bathroom and the room floor looked unclean probably due to its age. The parking fee of 20 Euros looked a beet steep. Please avoid this hotel if you can.
convenient position, friendly staff & cheap room slightly below par on cleanliness
the toilet are se far from room :)
I like its location most. no
The comfort of the room Not having a lift
The hotel was very central with easy access to shopping and the historical sites. The hotel was self contained and was very well equiped. Some minor maintenance issues (shower head can not be adjusted from waist height, towel drying rack is coming off the wall and instructions for dishwasher/griller etc only in French)
Lyon is an amazing city. The apartment was in a great location in terms of the shopping district, the sites and there are two underground stops not far away. The apartment was spacious and well equipped. There were mosquitos, which was awful!Make sure to come with anti-mosquito sprays. Also the apartment looks over a very busy and very noisy bar/pub area which made it really difficult to sleep.Though the windows are doubleglazed etc. In Summer, I could imagine it being unbearably warm.
Location was excellent for the sightseeing and resturants There was a lack of convienence shops in the area for provisions and also the arrangements for cleaning were unclear. Studio rooms were very small.
The location of this hotel is surperb. On a cobbled street in the dining & partying district, this is a great spot! Kids will scream past your windows at 4 am but that that's what you came here for..right...? Situated on the Pres'quile everything is at your doorstep: clothes, food, transportation... etc. Front desk was very helpful and gave us a map we used despite the tourism office's map. Surprised to find the couch was our bed (fold-out). And stricter renting rules than Switzerland (ie pay up front, nobody collects your garbage). but location was worth it. Charming hotel in a very desirable area. Great value for money.
location was great. It has a small kitchen and a nice bath Bed was in a sleep sofa. Not quite as comfortable as a standard mattress, but was acceptable. Room was not serviced daily
location excelent, comfort good, large space per suite, good matresses, very polite staff, good and very usefull room facilites, free internet in reception lobby, problems with ventilation in the common lobbies , toilet and bathroom but not very annoing, need maybe an airconditioning system
It's in the best location and neighbourhood it could ever be, good to have a microwave with grill, dishwasher,ironing machine, rooms are spacious enough even for the studios. There is no vacuum cleaner or any other cleaning instrument to clean your room, as they don't do it if you are staying less than a week, Slow elevators are an issue, there is no A/C in the rooms, Rooms are clean but really old, its time for a renewal for the hotel
1) Nicely equipped kitchenette just buy your oil,salt,sugar than u have everything to cook 2) Superb location 1) Slow elevators, if you don't wanna waste your time stay in lower flats 2) In summer lots of noise coming from the street, as it is very busy, no air condition so you have to open the windows and run the fan 3) Old furniture, worn out 4) Only cable internet however its relatively fast er than wifi 5) Once in a week cleaning isn't good
Nice room, LCD tv set, the staff was all right. You have to walk at least 10 minutes to find a subway station.
The location was very good with many restaurants and shops nearby. Our apartment overlooked a noisy square, so we were worried about being able to sleep, but the hotel had double layered windows, which completely blocked out the noise. The hotel had on-site parking, which was a major plus, but accessing the garage was very difficult. We had to navigate tight turns though a pedestrian area, and the remote didn't work on more than one occasion.
The hotel reception staff and the room were lovely.
Very good location for the tourist with easy access shops, rivers etc. Breakfast was disapointing. Although served until 10:30, food wasn't replenished after 09:45. Minor point. Also, due to holidays, there was no bar in the hotel.
Excellent location, friendly staff, good breakfast, very nice room with excellent bed.
Excellent location right in the center of the shopping district, friendly staff, charming decor, excellent breakfast, quiet room, updated bathroom. The bathtub could have been cleaned a bit better, and for some strange reason - perhaps cultural - there was no shower curtain provided, making a shower a rather wet affair.
Excellent central location
Perfect location, excellent view (junior suite, the corner of the building), nice and helpfull personnel (special thanks to Zhanna!) The only thing (but not too importaint!) - when you step on the floor it makes a wooden sound, probably there's an old wood under the carpet.
Hotel person is very kind.
The suits are very spacious and well-decorated. Nice views from the rooms. Very nice old lift. Someone forgot a jacket in our room and it was also lot of web on balcony.
Superb small hotel. Unbeatable location. Charming, willing staff. Nothing!
Very good location, just in the heart of Lyon. Staff was quite good and professional. This charming Hotel, besides it's an ancient bulding, give us all the comodities needed, with the "french glamour".
Very charming hotel, in the old French style of the city of lyon, located in the mere center of the city. Very confortable and spacious room. The staff was very welcomed and helpfull with any of uour request.Excellent breakfast in a beautifully decorated room.
very convenient location for public transport access to Lyon and beyond very poor lighting in bedroom
Hotel Chateau Perrache, set in a historic building, offers large rooms with modern bath facilities, easily reachable by train & tram, at the edge of the historic center and shopping areas. We stayed here for the third time in 2010 and enjoyed the friendly staff, good quality breakfast buffet. N/A
the location and the price great for train travelers and free internet for business user a plus All though the hotel was clean it is really run down for example on the 4th floor the floor I stayed on in the corridor leading to my room there was a broken window with small piece 5cm by 4cm missing nothing dramatic but it seemed to be like that for a while… This hotel definitely needs maintenance.
Convenience. spacious. good services. very supportive staff Due to the complexity of the road system surrounding the Perrache, it is difficult to find the hotel. More directions would be beneficical
Good location, large room, large bed, kind staff, clean room. Nothing.
Nicely decorated and comfortable hotel. Smell of fresh paint. After we checked in at the hotel we were the told that the resteraunt was closed because of a staff shortage. I probably would not have made reservations here if I had known this.
Although we booked a twin bed double room and we reminded the receptionist upon our arrival we were still given a double bed room and we had to carry our luggage down and to another room that we were given after our complaint. It was quite frustrating as we were very tired after a long journey. We also didnt particularly like the fact that there was a mouse running behind the reception desk!
Update of the decor to match the hotel
The location was such that to walk to the town one had to go through a major station.
Location next to train station - very practical for a short business trip arriving and departing on TGV.
Value for money. Large room, Excellent breakfast, nice location
Quiet rooms. Helpful staff.
Well centered and at walking distance of all interesting venues in Lyon (in particular, the old town). Very friendly and competent hotel staff; you can follow their recommendations regarding places to visit and restaurants.
It's very well located, and all the installations are ok. I found the breakfast somewhat poor (no vegetables at all, not even a tomato, no skim milk) and there were no drinks available: one had to be asking a waiter to serve drinks - while that one seemed to be saving each ml of drink.
location is great.
Nice people, very kind. We had a on window that we could open for approx 20 cm. With 3 adults we need some fresh air. Even with airco, fresh air is needed.
The location of the hotel was excellent. Less than 1 minute walk from the main shopping promenade. There was the main Metro line only 5 minutes walk away linking the rest of the city. The hotel rooms were a little old and small, however we had a Junior Suite which we found reasonably spacious and was located at the back of the hotel away from the traffic noise. We ate outside for all our meals...including breakfast and this was a perfect hotel for this. Generally the rooms were a little old in style....but they were comfortable
After a long days drive, the staff was very welcoming. I felt the hotel was in a thriving downtown location as was advertised. Easy parking just one block away.
Convenient location in the city center, close to old town, shops and restaurants; comfortable and clean room; very comfortable beds; staff very helpful, solved problem with luggage lock very late at night Parking nearby, but the hotel does not have any special arrangement, so it is quite expensive; rooms need perhaps a little renovation
air condition out of oder , I have been told a long time
The day staff was friendly and helpful. The location was close to the train station as well as shopping. The night staff was friendly but spoke no English. The hair dryer did not work. All light fixtures, hairdryer, and TV were hardwired, so there were no outlets to charge cell phone, etc. or to use my own hairdryer. Our son's room had no shower curtain and water got all over the bathroom floor, and the carpet was quite smelly. I would not stay here again.
not much the room was too small
good location, clean freindly comfortable bed good breakfast helpful staff
1-Helpful receptionists; 2-Good location (near Perrache); 3-Can't say about breakfast as I did not have breakfast there. 1-Mattress was not clean; 2-They use air-conditioner in winter which is not something popular in France and I dont like air-conditioners; 3-Room spray smells very strong, not good for people with sensible noses.
Easy to find in the centre of Lyons. Good off street parking. Courteous helpful staff
bathroom in this hotel the hotel staff don´t speak English
Excellent location. Friendly staff. Parking
close to the Peroche train station. walking distance from the center and old city. no bathroom curtain can cause discomfort.
Excellent location on pedestrian mall in city center surrounded by shops and restaurants and in easy walking distance to old town, friendly and helpful staff, clean room, great breakfast, and good/free WiFi/Internet. If you have a car, prepare in advance for difficulties with *very* limited parking in that area and carrying luggage from some distance to the hotel.
Excellent location, clean and comfortable bed and bathroom. English speaking, helpful staff. Has elevator. Decent breakfast. For drivers, hotel is on a pedestrian only street but it is at a corner, turn onto the pedestrian street, you can park for 10 minutes to leave your luggage and the staff with give you directions to a parking lot. The best one is a private, secure lot, 5 minutes awat and you get a discount on the rate when you stay at the hotel. No dislikes
Great location Room was a bit small
The attitude of the staff The price/value for money Free internet access was a nice touch NO
position friendly people, rooms breakfast not good both location and quality -
shower was not working well temperature too high during the night
The location of the hotel was excellent.
Pleasant room with good bathroom and quiet. Staff were helpful and most spoke English. The hotel is in a convenient location for sightseeing and a nice area. Breakfast offered a good choice of food in a pleasant dining room.
Well located near subway, nice staff.
the location couldn't be better. internet connexion fast. staff very helpful. comfy pillows. nice bathtube. no possibility water boiler for warm drinks in the room
It's a clean & decently spacious room. It can get noisy when the crowd at the bar next door gets rowdy.
location= hot water= clean sheets and towels We were aparty of five and were a;ll put on different floors
I think the hotel is in need of redecoration, new carpets, revamp the televison system, improve the speed of the wi fi,( It was so slow I couldn't book my fight home)
Convienient location just off autoroute, if passing through. Plenty of places to eat nearby.
The room was so nice. It was the nicest hotel in France I've ever stayed in. It felt so much like home, like I wasn't away or in a hotel.
We have asked for quite room during reservation but we get one next to elevator and it was not quite room
Clean room, very close to SNCF station.
It is at a walking distance from the center of the town and near the railway, bus, tram and subway stations. It is on a nice park with a lot of trees. I had a nice view from my window.
nice location, easy access to the main train station, comfortable room, great value
It was very cheap and very close to the metro station.
verry nice and good helpfull staff!!!
I dislike the large "International" type establishments and much prefer a local place that has local charm - this certainly fitted that bill .... Large room, No apparent facility to make, or obtain, a tea, coffee or soft drink. Small shower room. The entrance stairs and corridor are not the most welcoming first impression.
Old world charm. brillaint bathroom and shower The parking services offered are in a sister hotel which is over one kilometer from the hotel. Patio room is only unto a very smal courtyard. Next time will book room over place bellecour
Small, old-fashioned and quiet hotel. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Wireless internet a real plus. Breakfast was also a good value.
Good location for sightseeing all things in Lyon. Breakfast was ok, lovely room.
great location, interesting decor (feels like staying at a friends house) price could include parking fee
We had a wonderful room overlooking the square close to shopping and very centerally located. The room was clean and the staff helpful. I truly can not think of anything
I haven't been in a hotel without air conditioning for a long time. I just assumed every hotel has it. It happened to be in the 90s when we were there, and having no A/C was not cool. There was a fan in the closet though, which helped. The hotel is old and weathered, with stained carpet in the hallways and a rotted bathroom door and mold and dirt here and there. It was fine, but needs some updating. Pretty ood location though. No A/C. Older and dirty. Only one pillow. Nobody at reception when. We arrived around midnight, but they had our key on the desk for us.
The room was spacious and recently re-done, very nice. Location is perfect for a city tour. It is a very fair deal they offer, no complaints
The location and rooms of the Hotel They should be considered for late check out for an hour or two
Great location, in central part of town. The staff was very accommodating. Bed was very uncomfortable due to the bolster pillow, and the bathroom only had a tub, no shower. I now can see why the hotel was moderately priced in a traditionally expensive city.
Staff was helpful and it was close to old town.
The location was excellent
The location was excellent, situated half-way between Place Bellecour and Jacobins, one block from the Soan; and just a short walk to Place Terreaux. The Desk staff were exceptionally helpful. We stayed at the hotel for two weeks and were completely satisfied. (The breakfast was quite nice, but our preference was to go to Cafe des Jacobins each morning, rather than eat at the hotel.) Nothing.
The room was compact, but very clean and very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location made it very easy to explore Lyon on foot.
i liked the hotel place in the city , near to everything and didin't have to take metro or taxi . room should be cleaner
This hotel is in the perfect location. My room was extremely clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Small room, but that's ok, i was traveling alone. Comfort and cleanliness is number one for me. It was my first time visiting Lyon, I would like to return as soon as possible. Loved it! I would definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend to others.
Central location + Free Parking + Comfort + Welcoming stuff (1) Hotel reserved 100Euro under name of gesthotel 14:00 the day I've arrived there, It was 4 nice hours worryng who is using my VISA. After a week we leave they haven't cancelled the reservation. (2) I've asked for non-smoking room but my room smells, cigarett ends were on balcony, and cork of champaign was found behind the door. I presume I was unlucky. I haven't clamed during the stay. (3) There are 2 wings. My room wasn't in maine one, pass was through the garden, it was heavy rain.
Very nice, spacious room.
A very pleasant hotel in all respects. Free, secure car parking (limited space) a big bonus. The TV reception on the English channels was not perfect
freendly people in the reception
Convenience No parking facilities
Closeness to Old Town and Metro lines
Its location (near the train station) and quietness One small issue, I requested for a kettle and cups for tea and it never came.
The hotel was very convenient for public transport and when we got the car into your car park it was a great advantage to us. Not able to pre-book a parking space in the hotel car park.
The staff are always helpful, this was the reason why I returned to the hotel.
very convenient location, free parking, helpful staff would have appreciated having continental breakfast, free wi-fi access, and more satellite TV channels
Good clean room and good value breakfasts Size of the cups for having coffee etc in our room. Too small
It's extremely well located Rooms are small, breakfast is extra 12 EUR, rooms can be noisy at night, probably not worth the price paid (75 EUR)
Close to city, easy access to subways etc ...
Helpful reception desk staff Prostitutes stationed on same street next to hotel during the afternoon
Position of the hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
Staff very Friendly
Friendliness of reception staff. Despite arriving early I was allowed to check in as my room was ready. Breakfast more than sufficient. Location excellent: close to shopping area and my meeting place. Good value for money, I can certainly recommend this hotel to fellow travellers.
The hospitality of services for the price Nothing specific
Location to attractions was excellent very clean and friendly hotel breakfast was lovely easy to find hotel right by a underground train station Rooms were alittle small
