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!
While the hotel is comfortable and warm, and is in a good location, a bit more attention to detail is required.
We rented a room for 3 for two nights. The beds were comfortable and the room was warm. However on the first day we only had two towels and had to request another. On the second day we only had one towel! You also need to ensure that you bring your own shampoo etc as none is provided by the hotel.
Wifi is also not provided - which is rather surprising these days. We paid for wifi, payment is required for each device, but in our room coverage was poor. Attention should be given to improving this.
On the plus side, the location of the hotel is good. Handy to the old part of lyon and the river. I suggest that you work out how to get there on the tram though, and don't walk.
We cannot comment on the quality of the breakfast as we never had it. But for the cost of breakfast for one us of, we went to the local bakery and bought croissants and pain au chocolat.
Overall we would recommend the hotel, but just be aware of its limitations.

"EXPERIENCING HISTORICAL ARCHITECTURE AT IT'S BEST"
Only 20 hours in Lyon: we wanted a "no hassle" location where we could put heels to the pavement immediately and enjoy all that Lyon has to offer on foot. This was the perfect hotel. Wonderful staff and very professional. We were very impressed with the ease of the check in experience and were fully oriented to our rooms which were large and gorgeous Junior Suites. We set off exploring the city and found that some of the best representations of renaissance architecture are within the hotel itself. We wish we could have stayed more than one night. Breakfast in the morning is sensational and delicious!
The staff was knowledgable about the area and had great recommendations for dining and entertainment ! The rooms were up to date clean and comfortable . The only issue at all would be to add wifi access to be available in the rooms and not just the lobby area .
A great experience overall !
