If you are looking for a charming hotel with a nice service, this is the place. We only stayed one night in the suite 105 and would have loved to stay longer!

Elegant public and private rooms. Exceptionally helpful concierge. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed at Le Royal for two nights. A cosy hotel with very friendly staff, excellently located in the centre of the city. Rooms are good but slightly outdated and not very cheap for what they have to offer. Otherwise simply very good.

We had a beautiful room with a view our over the main square. The room was extremely spacious and delightfully decorated and very quiet at night. Very French I felt, which was wonderful. The location for dining out was excellent and you could walk to and view many of the towns great spots. The staff were very helpful and courteous.

I went to Lyon with my husband and my parents to visit my daughter who is living and studying in Lyon.

We could have not chosen a better hotel...

The hotel is really nice, with a nice location in the center of Old Lyon, with subway next corner and a lot of shoppings, restaurants, museuns very near. The rooms are very clean and confortable. The breakfast is very good but a little expensive. The staff is very, very kindly and very nice and take care all you need quickly...

This is great hotel. I was a bit reluctant because all they had when I booked was a single room, but I wasn't disappointed. The room was very nice, great shower, good size (single) bed. The highlight of the stay were the breakfasts. The location is also perfect.

Awesome hotel with a perfect location! Beds are some of the comfiest I've ever tried and the staff is friendly and very polite! Valet parking makes it super easy to deal with multiple vehicles (our case) and Breakfast was diverse and I'd say innovative... Loved it! highly recommended!
