The Sofitel offers very comfortable rooms. The "superior" grade room had a very comfortable bed, modern bathroom and excellent amenities all in good condition. Although the room faced a busy street it was very quiet. The staff at reception and housekeeping are courteous and competent and responsive, as you would expect from a first class establishment. As a regular visitor...

Rooms where really nice and fantastic amenities such as Hermes bathroom products. Nice large towels. The concierge where really helpful and always got me taxis very quickly.

on our way to the French Alps we stayed at this great hotel. Very nice staff. Clean and spacious room. Dinner at the 8th floor restaurant was excellent. Tasteful dishes, the accompanying wines well matched. For sure to be repeated before long

The rooms and especially the beds are very comfortable here. The 8th floor restaurant has a great view over the Rhone. It is in easy walking distance of most things and sits between the Rhone and the Seine.
