  • Being a French capital for tourism and commerce, Lyon offers a truly wide variety of accommodation options. The city has all the expected brand name hotels, luxury 4 and 5 star establishments, intimate boutique hotels, a whole host of uniquely independent hotels and a sprinkling of hostels. One of the real joys of Lyon is the fact that eminent attractions are condensed throughout the city, so wherever you stay; it’s likely you’ll have a must-see attraction on your doorstep or very nearby.

    Starting from the top, Lyon’s most highly stared hotel is the 5 star Sofitel Lyon, which is situated close to the central Place Bellecour. The Sofitel is the only accredited 5 star hotel in Lyon, but equal standards can be found in hotels throughout the city. Just around the corner from the Sofitel - and located directly on the Place Bellecour perimeter - Hotel Royal is a beautiful hotel with a 4 star rating which it generally surpasses. Moving from Bellecour - up Fourvière hill - Villa Florentine is a highly romantic and highly rated 4 star hotel with a Michelin stared restaurant and a stunning location on the slopes of Fourvière hill. And for 4 star accommodation in Lyons green area around Parc Tête d’Or, La Reine Astrid is an elegant hotel located opposite the park on the prestigious Boulevard des Belges.

    Mid-range hotels take up the greatest proportion of the accommodation pie in Lyon, and can be found in abundance throughout city. Brand name hotels account for much of the mid-range options, with Mercure hotels holding a big presence in Lyon. Mercure Lyon Plaza Republique is a notable option, owing to the hotel's prime location in the narrowest point of the central Presqu’Île (peninsula), and the Mercure Lyon Brotteaux is another mid-range choice, located on the formerly mentioned Boulevard des Belges. Ibis hotels are also a big name in the city. Providing an extensive selection of mid-range options, Ibis hotels generally offer consistent value for money. Ibis Lyon Centre Perrache and Ibis Pert-Dieu les Halles are both good mid-range options for accommodation located near to the city’s main train stations.

    On the lower end of the scale, the line between hostels and hotels becomes a bit vague in Lyon. Many budget hotels advertise themselves as hostels, but do not operate in the usual hostel style. For a real hostel; look out for the word ‘auberge’ in the accommodation type title. ‘Aberge’ is the French equivalent of a hostel that can be found mainly in France’s rural areas. This said, there are a few in the city of Lyon, and this accommodation option can make for a more authentic and culturally integrated stay in the city. Notable for its prime location on Fouviere hill - and for its true hostel atmosphere - Auberge de Jeunesse du Vieux Lyon is a great choice for all hostel lovers. Getting back to the budget hotels, two well established choices include Hotel de Bretagne and Hotel des Savoies; both notable for their location on Lyon’s Presqu’Île.
