Fact is that this is nowadays the only 5 stars hotel in Lyon being refurbished. However having breakfast there is awfull since you have to wait for 30 to 40 minutes every day in order to have a table. However stuff is very nice .

We were booked into this hotel by Viking River Cruises when our cruise could not go ahead due to raised river levels and flooding. We were delighted as we had stayed in a Sofitel in Berlin and had been greatly impressed. From the moment of arrival all was good, not least as Viking had put us in a junior suite....

Lovely location right on the banks for the river and close the the proximity of restaurants and shopping district. Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. The room I was allocated was quite small with a long corridor which is wasted space. The air condition was quite noisy and the small gym was a bit of a disappointment.

Location is good; the corner room that I stayed in had nice views and a comfortable bed but the bathroom was inadequate - no space between toilet and bath/wall and shower did not work properly (problem in mix hold/cold so no matter what I tried, it was impossible to reach an acceptable temperature).
