Excellent location, very big and comfortable bed, nice staff

Anthony B. Couples - 20/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was dated, Very few sockets in the room, the TV is delivered via the internet and the system is dated (takes 15 seconds to change between channels), The night stand tables are a meter and half away from the bed, There was no bathtub which is odd for a 5 star hotel, The room service was not up to par, no replacement of the mini bar and the coffee capsules during cleaning.

Dear Anthony B., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Lyon Bellecour. We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow us to express our sincerest apologies. We are very surprised to read that the night stand tables were far from the bed because they are very close from one another. Another table in the room is close to the window and not from the bed. Maybe you were talking about this one ? However if you need a bigger table beside your bed do not hesitate to precise this point with our reservation agents. We will be glad to help you with anything you need. Some of our bedrooms have bathtubs, and all our suites have both a shower and a bathtub. Do not hesitate to tell us your preference during your next reservation. Also, we are sorry that your TV was slow. Please rest assured that our maintenance team will repair this incident. Concerning room service, we took your remarks into account. We apologize for your insatisfaction. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Morgane Responsable Expérience Client

I've been there for 1 day. Had a great time, check-in & out were good. I've been well welcomed. Room, bed & bathroom are great but could deserve a modernity-boost. Breakfast was amazing. Cab service worked well but a bit long.

Seaside61469216993 29/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is poorly maintaint ! I was booking junior suite and it was absolutly unacceptable bad smelling and everthing in the room was looking terrible old and out lived. I do not recomend this hotel for anyone. Staff was good !

We are very sorry, dear guest, that your experience with us did not meet you expectations since guests' satisfaction is our priority. A renovation project is under study and we hope that you will like the futur new decoration. In the meantime, we hope to welcome you back and to regain you trust. Best regards

Nice hotel, great location

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

EddyTLV Couples - 04/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

The Hotel is nicely situated. We had a junior suite facing the river. The staff were very friendly and the room service (we had breakfast in the room) were very friendly but lacked consistency. The toilet cabin in the suite is tiny and the bath room relatively small. THe room need a face lift no doubt; the wooden decor is scratched and the carpet should be replaced by a wooden floor.

Thank you dear guest for your great feedback regarding your recent stay with us. We are very pleased to read that you enjoyed the friendliness of our Ambassadors as well as the room service breakfast and the comfort of our rooms. We look forward to host you back soon again for another memorable stay. Best regards.

Lovely hotel but a bit tired

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Judi & David G Couples - 24/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

Very friendly staff, great breakfast and lovely restaurant. The junior suite was clean and well equipped but in need of refreshing. Broken tiles, chipped furniture and dirty marks on the wall are not appropriate in a hotel of this standard.

Dear Guest, We thank you for your recent stay. We are pleased that you enjoyed our buffet breakfast as well as the professional service from our Ambassadors. Please, allow us to express our sincerest apologies regarding the rooms. Also, we are glad to let you know that a global refurbishment project is currently under study, we look forward to showing it to you soon. Best regards,

Resort294403 Couples - 19/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

A really great hotel with excellent facilities, we had a beautiful room on the third floor overlooking the river, everything you could want for a weekend away. Housekeeping was outstanding, our room was spotlessly clean in every way. Very welcoming from the minute we arrived till we departed. You must visit the bar on the top floor, the views in the evening are wonderful, and was the Espresso Martinis cocktails, a fabulous experience, well done Sofitel Bellacour team for a wonderful stay!

Thank you Resort294403 for your wonderful feedback. All the team thank you for your compliments and will be pleased to welcome you back for your next visit in Lyon. Warm regards.
