Spend 5 nights in this hotel. The construction is very interesting and space utilisation is something to be noted. Rooms are adequate in size. Well maintained and got a rich and classic feel. Toilet is a little cramped but neat. Breakfast is good. Internet works well. There are plenty of restaurants in the walkable distance. Swimming pool is small but...

We stated for four nights in a superior room, which was extremely comfortable. The hotel is in a good location and everything is walking distance. It's close to the main square Des Terreaux. Hotel staff at reception were extremely helpful with great suggestions for restaurants nearby. Free wifi and good breakfast.

OK, not if you are in a car but, arriving by train & taxi, this is about perfect.

Ideally placed for sightseeing around Lyon this friendly little Hotel was good value and our stay here very pleasant. From the time we arrived the staff were outstanding both friendly and accommodating without being intrusive. Our room was clean and tastefully decorated. The only minor fault with the room was a loud running radiator. Breakfast selection was too ample if...

The best thing about this hotel ism its central location. The facilities are correct but could be better. The food is good. After all we are in Lyon! The staff at the front desk is kind and helpful.

This place is in the Terreaux area which is packed with restaurants, markets and shopping nearby. It's about a 20 euro taxi ride from either of the 2 nearest train stations. There is an elevator. The bed was the most comfortable I've had so far in Europe - supportive but soft enough to sink into a little. An extra pillow...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, LE GRAND HOTEL DES TERREAUX is one of Lyon’s oldest hotels. It combines the atmosphere of an old-fashioned 19th century town house with a daringly modern, innovative design. Every detail shows the personality of this place which is brought to life by the passion of its staff and the soul of its Guests. This lovely hotel enjoys a prime location on the peninsula, not far from the Lyon Opera House and the Théatre des Célestins, just on the edge of the historic centre of Lyon with its many bistro-style restaurants (known locally as ‘bouchons’), and a stone’s throw from the Place des Terreaux and the Musée des Beaux-Arts. As you will see from our guest book, we have had the privilege of welcoming a number of very famous guests. ... more   less
