Villa Florentine in Lyon, France

Those travelers who appreciate both the glories of the past and the innovation of the future will adore Lyon, home to the warm and welcoming Villa Florentine. Just two hours by train from Paris, the dynamic city provides a spectacular backdrop for signature Relais & Chateaux lan, beginning with a fusion of period furnishings and contemporary design aesthetics. Among the hotel's many treasures is the Michelin-starred dining room, beautifully positioned in the original Trinity Convent and featuring a winter garden, summer terrace and panoramic views of the city.

Ancient Roman ruins, a pioneering Renzo Piano-design amphitheater and one of the oldest summer festivals in Europe. Lyon is filled with endless delights. As you explore the neighborhoods that flank the Saone River, you will discover traditional sidewalk cafs, unforgettable haute cuisine, antique dealers, historic Notre Dame Basilica and a lively, thriving Old Town. Because Lyon is situated in the Rhone Valley, wine tasting is essential. When exploring outlying medieval villages, save time to stop and sip the Beaujolais along the way.

Villa Florence exceeded our expectations in every way. It's a beautiful small Hotel with every detail in perfect order. The Hotel itself is in a fantastic position overlooking the city. Close to everything, yet peaceful and quiet. The interior spaces are warm and inviting and the remaining few touches of the former Convent integrate well into the scheme. The Staff is extremely accommodating and polite. The Concierge took care to make sure all of the Dinners and activities we planned would be confirmed by him personally on our arrival, and the rest of the Staff was equally enthusiastic about the property and whatever they could do to familiarize us with the facilities, Fete des lumieres, and Lyon itself. The pool, spa, sauna and heated chaises were a marvelous place to relax after walking all day in poor weather (and uphill to the Hotel). Breakfast was lovely and very convenient that it's served from early morning until 11:00 AM-so regardless of early or late wake up time we could enjoy it. The selection of juices, fruits, cereal, pastry, yogurt, plus cooked to order items were abundant. One of the more thoughtful details of the Breakfast space was the addition of mirrors framing the windows which provided a much more expansive view over Lyon. The Bedroom was comfortable and even though the property was completed a while ago --and exhibiting a touch of a patina--the classic Italian style still has a nice ambiance as well as supplying all the practical amenities. Housekeeping was also very attentive to the facilities even though we hardly saw their Staff-their presence was obvious with the excellent condition of our Room and the Hotel. We loved Villa Florentine. It was a marvelous stay and a positively amazing Guest experience because of the Staff.

We took a train from Paris to Lyon to spend a couple days experiencing the best restaurants Lyon had to offer. From the moment we stepped into Villa Florentine, you knew it was something special. First of all, the views were insane. The staff made sure our stay was wonderful. We even snagged a booking at Paul Bocuse thanks to the staff. Our room was amazing, well appointed, and equipped with a huge bathroom and separate sauna. The views from this junior suite were incredible! We definitely have to come back and stay longer.

It seems it is a national sport in France to still the client money out of hotel stay - Indeed , for 450 euros a night ( just the night and breakfast ) you can enjoy to be wake up at 11pm by the noise from the restaurant and at 6am by the noise of the staff preparing breakfast- they were that noisy that they wake me up from 6am to 7:30am ( until first clients arrived ) in addition , they wake up as well the room just above the breakfast salon ( we were travelling together ) - mine was number 1 , just below the breakfast room - It is quite a shame to rent this room as it is very old , very dark ( just one window) with no view and right above the parking entrance .. a pure enjoyment! In this room , you can enjoy the noisy restaurant ,the super noisy breakfast and parking - I would suggest you to never rent the room 1 or 4 if you really want to go there - ( but I assume others rooms have the same disagreement- To finish , the breakfast staff this morning give us attitude as they were messing up our order and it took them 15/20 minutes to give us 2 regular eggs- But after all of this you still have to pay 450 euros per night , i honestly don’t understand how this hotel works ! I would suggest to go to “la cours de loges “ which is much less snobby and much more service oriented -

We stayed there end of Sept, immediately following a “cold snap”. It was warm when we were there and we wanted to use ac. Unfortunately, the previous week’s cold weather meant the ac had been shut down for the duration, and now only heating was available. Our room was 75 degrees F! No fan was offered, we were told to open windows and had similar issues w. Street noise both nights. Our room (#9) was spacious. But— the layout was odd. Directly across from the door and (excessive?) closet “room”/hall was a room which only had a toilet. If you wished to wash your hands after using the toilet, or even use the bidet—you had to exit that toilet room, walk through the bedroom area, over to the bathroom. Strange. Inconvenient. Odd. This bathroom was very dated. Pink tiles thoughout. Brass colored faucets etc. We completely enjoyed our dinner at the restaurant. The service and the meal were outstanding. Be advised that from this beautiful spot perched on a steep hill with views of the city—you must descend a daunting flight of stairs between 2 buildings. And that means your return to hotel will require ascending these same stairs. But, the hotel is only mid way up this steep hill! The day of our departure, our car service was confounded by a road race which created numerous road closures. To make our train, we needed to be picked up at arranged time. the driver got as far as the top of this hill. A staffer from the hotel helped us. He took 1 piece of luggage, my husband took another, and I had the carry on. All the way up the rest of the hill! Wow! Fantastic service. Above and beyond.

This is a wonderful hotel with history. Very friendly and helpful staff. The pool (though small) is great and has a jacuzzi area, & "hot beds" too. The view over the City from the pool area is amazing. The food in the restaurant is wonderful (not cheap) but comes top of the Michelin starred places to eat in Lyon. The hotel is a short walk from the old town with many bars and cheap eateries. The rooms (and bathrooms) are spacious and very clean. I would highly recommend.
