A must-see hotel, even if you choose not to stay, for both its architecture and its decoration. If you do stay overnight, you'll be among the lucky guests who will enjoy the soft, refined atmosphere with a rare elegance. We recommend it for a chic romantic getaway, unless you're not a fan of red.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The Carlton Lyon hotel took up residence in 1894 in a building with a particularly elegant Haussmann façade featuring wrought-iron balconies, a dome and rotundas. And the refinement of the façade is only a prelude to what awaits guests at the hotel.
    Already known as the 'small palace' of Lyon in the late 19th century, the Carlton Lyon Hotel is still grand today. Completely renovated in 2013, this hotel is a jewel from the MGallery Collection. Combining tastefully decorated rooms full of the history of the rich past of this establishment and the work of the architect Yann Le Coadic and interior designer Alessandro Scotto, who were responsible for the renovation, the Carlton Lyon is definitely a high-class hotel.
    You just need to step into the lobby to understand the elegance or simply visit the communal areas to realize that everything has been designed for customer comfort. First you will come to the lounge, with a beautiful pink sofa in the centre, armchairs and coffee tables and an upright piano, which is immersed in an intimate and cosy atmosphere with dimmed lighting. This space also acts as a bar area.
    The beautiful small breakfast room also immerses guests in an intimate and refined atmosphere with its walls covered with wood panelling, stained glass windows and an oval buffet on the central island. There are 14 tables for two people.
    One of the hotel's main features is its lift dating from 1930 which includes a bench seat - an absolute must. The Carlton has two meeting rooms: 'The Office' on the mezzanine and 'The Salon' on the second floor. The 18m² 'The Office' can accommodate 8 people while the 34m² 'The Salon' can accommodate approximately 16 people. Both rooms are filled with natural daylight and are equipped with a flipchart, audio visual equipment, high speed Internet, Wi-Fi and a video projector.
    For business travellers, the hotel provides a free-to-use business centre with a computer and a fax machine.
    The hotel has disabled access in the communal areas.

    Breakfast can also be served in the guest rooms in the form of a continental breakfast.
