If you are visiting Lyon for the first time, book yourself in at this 164-room city centre hotel: no matter how long you are staying, it has everything to make your time here a total success. The Rhône flows at its door and the Place Bellecour is within walking distance. The view of Lyon is unique, with its terrace on the eighth floor.
Do not be tempted to order breakfast in bed, but instead head to the panoramic dining room of the restaurant to enjoy the morning light and the copious buffet. At nightfall, come back to gaze at the breathtaking view of the illuminated city from the bar, with a drink in hand, or sit at a table in the Trois Dômes, the hotel's Michelin-starred restaurant by chef Christian Lherm up on the eighth floor. It must be said that the hotel is one of the most luxurious in the city. The rooms are classics and the service is typically Lyonnais - everything comes with a smile.
