I will highly recommend this hotel to only my nicest friends. You do not deserve this hotel unless you like total luxury, breath taking views, ultra modern and luxurious amenities in the room and bath with old world views from this re-imagined convent. The hotel's heart and soul is the staff. The service, generosity and caring staff cannot do enough to make one's stay perfect. There has been not even one tiny thing that I can complain about. I hope all who stay here find peace in their heart, lose all their worries and stress, and come to see the world from a different point of view. My string of good luck brought me to this magical place.
The service was superb from the moment we checked in up until we drove off. Every single staff member was friendly, attentive, and professional. The concierge was helpful in helping us become familiar with the town and to make our time stress free while efficient.
"Lovely hotel ideally situated for the Old Quarter"
The hotel is right on the river and a main road but there were no noise issues. The room was spacious and well air conditioned. The bar never seemed to be open though, and there is only breakfast (no restaurant). However there are many fine places to eat and drink only a few minutes walk away.
The staff was wonderful. We spent very little time in our room, other than sleeping. There are lots of stairs, so
be in shape if you stay here. We were a short walk to the market and thoroughly enjoyed shopping there, right across the river.

A hidden gem! I’m so glad that we chose to stay here during our Lyon break. I can’t imagine a better place or location from which to experience the city. A lot of thought and care has gone into the gorgeous décor and this beautiful apartment is extremely well-equipped boasting the all-essential corkscrew, free Wi-Fi, hairdryer, washing machine, tea/coffee and even a dishwasher.
The custodians of Le Petit Tramassac are extremely accommodating and the check-in/out process at the apartment was very easy. We emailed our arrival times to the staff (who seemed happy to communicate with us in both French and English) using the form on their main website and arranged to meet outside the apartment to collect the keys. It was all very efficient and hassle-free.
Moreover, you couldn’t ask for a better or prettier location (and I'd rate Vieux Lyon over Presqu'île for a holiday-type break) with the majority of Lyon’s attractions and amenities sited within walking distance. Le Petit Tramassac itself is just a few minutes’ walk away from both the metro & the funicular that takes you up to the Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and the Roman theatre - a must for any new visitor to Lyon and free to wander around except for if you’re visiting the museum.
Unless you have serious mobility issues (in which case the spiral staircase could be a bit of a problem as detailed by previous reviewers), I’d wholeheartedly recommend Le Petit Tramassac to any visitor to Lyon.
Definitely stay here.

Vieux Lyon and Fourvière Hill contain some of Lyon's oldest buildings and served as the seat of power in Lyon from Roman rule through the Renaissance. The Cathédrale St. Jean and the Basilique de Fourvière are two of Lyon's most prominent churches. Visit December 8 for the city's Festival of Lights when residents place candles in their windows and the city puts on colorful displays.
