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 élan, 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 cafés, 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.

Reviews for Villa Florentine
We stayed one night in June. A lovely hotel. Clean, friendly staff and great rooms. Although we did not get a view from our room I imagine that the rooms on the city side have a great view. It is in a good location. The decor of the main lobby is very peaceful as it has been carefully restored form the original convent. The breakfast was only OK based on our many hotel breakfast in France. That is to say, it was Ok, but not the best we had. It cost 27 Euro per person. The room was well equipped with fast WiFi, coffee faculties and TV. The bathroom was nice. All the linen was top quality.

I have been to many of this company's properties before. This hotel is mostly beautiful and professional as the other properties, except their restaurant. Beware their restaurant. At its price range, it was eye-openingly bad in both its food and its service, so just take a cab or uber to one of the local restaurants, like Cafe des Federation. It has a great view, but here are the issues: 1. The serving staff is messy, unprofessional, and potentially just racist. (When I offered feedback on the first course, the server, simply ignored my words. Could be my imagination, but there seemed to be incredulousness, skepticism, and complacency in her face. She then went on to treat me as if I were a backwater blind fool who had no idea what I was consuming. It was some "overcooked" shrimp they claimed to be prawn ceviche by the way. The server then took away our dishes after one bite and simply never came back, tried to understand my words, or offered any words of understanding. Also, that dish costs about $40 per person. Along with all the flies and mosquitoes, the overall experience reminds me more of a street stall in Indonesia than a fine dining restaurant.) 2. The food is unrepresentative of the local cuisine and tries to imitate what a michelin star restaurant's menu looks like 3. The imitation is inconsistent and of low quality 4. The service is slow by french standards, 1.5hours for first course, and almost 5 hours for everything, with as much as an hour of downtime in between courses

Had 3 wonderful nights here... Morgan at check-in was excellent.. Very friendly and helpful.. we stayed in a junior suite that had a corner terrace that was spectacular! Room very comfortable but bathroom needs serious upgrade. All other staff were very friendly with the exception of the service at the pool.. really no service there unless you ask... even then not welcoming. Pool was nice though..Gerald at concierge was awesome. Separate review of restaurant but don't miss it. One of the best meals we had in our 4 1/2 weeks in France!

Very warm welcome, absolutely a very good location. Very close to the basilica and to the old lyon which protected by Unesco. Rooms are ordinary. Very nice breakfast comparison to the other French hotels.
everyone was wonderful at this special spot...Ann at the helm, and Gerald at the concierge desk! we spent 2 lovely days there--enjoying every moment except an occasional grumpy gentleman in the breakfast room! head to Lyon for a grand experience! signed, Ellen Jasper
