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
Absolutely beautiful hotel, stunning views of the city when you sit in the restaurant & sit around the stunning pool & hot tub. The staff are the perfect mix of professional & high end but not snooty or arrogant. We were upgraded to a suite which had a hall way, huge bathroom overlooking the city & huge bedroom with big lounge area. The French doors opened out onto the pool area as well as the city area. The interior of the property is classic & adorns heritage. The restaurant is expensive but the views across the city are outstanding and well worth the money, just what you'd expect at a top restaurant. The only pit fall with the hotel was the pool bar which wasn't manned and I spend a lot of my at searching for a bar tender to ask for a drink. In the end I helped myself. Drinks are very expensive at the hotel, a half a beer will cost you 8 euros and a glass of wine around 15 euros. The hotel Is at the top of the hill under the Notre Damn and if you are unable to climb an incline of steps you're probably better off calling a cab or staying somewhere closer the river. I like this hotel for it's views and classiness.

Second visit to Villa Florentine, lovely hotel, very quiet and a lovely location overlooking the city. However... Do be prepared for many steps leading down to the city, yes its ok going down but coming home this is a challenge, be prepared. One or two small faults this time, WIFI service is awful and the time it took for anything requested to the room (ICE for example) was terrible, Other than that, all round a lovely place to retreat for the weekend

Our visit to Villa Florentine was made memorable by great staff and a wonderful position looking over Lyon but was let down by very dated decor and rooms lacking in ambiance. We left with the feeling we were overcharged for the comfort the room afforded.

We stayed at the Villa Florentine in July 2017 as a family of five with three kids. We enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is uniquely located on top of the hill overlooking the city of Lyon. What views you have from the windows! That is amazing. The hotel itself is very beautiful, it occupies several adjacent medieval buildings. You can see and feel luxury in everything. The hotel is priced quite expensively, but probably it is worth it. I do not know about other rooms, but the suite that we had (Suite Lumier) was very spacious and nicely decorated, with a lot of amenities. You can have a rich breakfast on a terrace overlooking the city. The hotel has a Michelin-starred restaurant, but I am writing a separate review on it. So I definitely recommend this hotel for a luxurious stay in Lyon to remember.

We loved our experience at Hotel Florentine, where we were warmly greeted by the manager and the concierges. The magnanimous treatment we felt on arrival continued throughout our three-day stay. The view of old town (Vieux Lyon) from our room was spectacular, especially at night, and Vieux Lyon was just a flight of steps below the hotel. We also especially enjoyed lunch on the terrace.
