The staff and facilities were superb. The breakfast sumptuous. Well priced. (I almost didn't book as I was concerned about parking my rental car, but it turned out there is a parking space at the front door and nearby underground parking which was reasonably priced. Odd that they don't mentioned this online, as it is a big decided for those...

The location is excellent really in the hearth of the city, close by walking from everything. The personnel is also very nice and helpfull. The rooms are clean but nothing special, the pool is really nice but quite fresh.

This was an easy place to stay. Good service in the reception, a comfortable room and a central location in Lyon. Another important quality was the room facing a quiet backyard. The hotel would get my full score if just the maintenance of the bathroom had been better. But it was good enough for one staying just one night.

They also have a very nice bar, and - if you´re into it - a little indoor swimming pool. Lots of nice restaurants around, in close walking distance to Old Town and main buildings, incl. art museum, public transport (subway) ... Only problem I had: sketchy wireless connection, and no, it´s not my computer (no problem at next hotel). They...

Good location for visiting Lyon, a short walk away from many beautiful places like the Musée des Beaux Arts or the Parc de la Tete d'Or. The room was old-fashioned (unfortunately with a carpet) but quiet and with clean and modern bathrooms. I did not try the breakfast nor the pool.

Perfect location in the 1st arrondisement of Lyon. Easy walk to old town but enjoyed this part of the city as well. As stated by others the room was extremely small but the bathroom was more than adequate. Cozy breakfast room with nice selection..they even had gluten-free bread which was a pleasant surprise.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, LE GRAND HOTEL DES TERREAUX is one of Lyon’s oldest hotels. It combines the atmosphere of an old-fashioned 19th century town house with a daringly modern, innovative design. Every detail shows the personality of this place which is brought to life by the passion of its staff and the soul of its Guests. This lovely hotel enjoys a prime location on the peninsula, not far from the Lyon Opera House and the Théatre des Célestins, just on the edge of the historic centre of Lyon with its many bistro-style restaurants (known locally as ‘bouchons’), and a stone’s throw from the Place des Terreaux and the Musée des Beaux-Arts. As you will see from our guest book, we have had the privilege of welcoming a number of very famous guests. ... more   less
