The title says it all. The hotel staff, as well as the people of Lyon, couldn't have been better. We wished we could have stayed longer in this beautiful city as there are wonderfully different things to do and with the great location of the hotel, everything was within walking distance.
Hotel carlton is first off, located in a great part of town. It's pretty close, definitely within walking distance, to a lot of sightseeing but I got the impression that it's a bit further from the main food district. The hotel itself is very pretty and extremely comfortable. Breakfast and the food from the room service menu were both delicious. Also, the staff is very helpful and welcoming. I'd definitely stay here again!
Great location, within walking distance of the most charming street of cafes! Near the river, we watched the Bastille Day fireworks close to our hotel. We were very pleasantly surprised by the comfort and quality of this hotel. The only downside is the cost of parking, quite expensive due to needing to park in the city lot.
Hotel de Verdun was our central location during our stay in France. It is an older building. However, the rooms are very clean and the hospitality shown by the staff was excellent. They were very helpful in recommending places to dine, how to reach various locations in the city and they were especially hospitable during our unexpected extra week due to the volcano eruptions in Iceland. We definitely would return to Hotel de Verdun if the opportunity presents itself and to visit this region in France once again. Our hotel was around the corner from the Gare Perrache where we could take the tramway to different parts of town. Our walk to Old Lyon and the main dining restaurants was about 10-15 minutes.
Not sure if the hotel is air conditioned which would be excellent during the hot summer days. Our room did not have a bar fridge. We are not certain if that is common in most hotels in France.
Overall our experience was great and we definitely would return.
Everything about this hotel was perfect. The staff were incredibly friendly, the facilities were very modern, the room itself was a wonderful layout (and there were two layers of double-glazed glass so I had an amazing sleep every night) and it was just so comfortable! I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely book a room here again the next time I visit Lyon.
