Disappointed T. Business - 11/09/2019 AccorHotels review
« Disappointing for a 5 star hotel »

I asked for a low floor room and discovered that this room only had a shower and no bath tub. When I enquired about a room with a bath, I was told only rooms from the 5th floor upwards had baths. I had also asked for a quiet room, but mine was located next to a noisy outdated air conditioning vent in the corridor. When I initially went down to reception to enquire about changing my room, I had to call out 3 times before someone from reception came out from the back office at 11pm. They were not friendly or sympathetic to my concern. I went to the bar to order a wine and was astounded when I was charged €20 for a small glass. The breakfast, which costs €28, had a selection of cheap and unappetizing cereals and very little choice for the price charged. This was my third stay at this hotel and will definitely be my last.

« Black mold »

The bathroom was deplorable with black mold in the shower grouting and in the corners of the bathtub. Black mold was also present under the sink. The carpeting was old, stained, and dirty. This hotel simply does not meet Sofitel standards and I am surprised it is allowed to carry the Sofitel name. When the condition of our room (401) was brought to the attention of the day manager she apologized and stated the top floor rooms were due for upgrade within the next five years. I took photographs of the deplorable state of the room and will send them to the general manager Mr. Jacques Bourgignon. On a positive note, the staff were excellent and the breakfast superb.

« Comfortable and convenient hotel »

Met with a smile by reception, hotel facets well explained, my 3 rd floor room overlooked the Rhone and was spacious and comfortable. The Concierge was very helpful and informative, recommending two Bouchon, ( both of which I dined at and were top class) and where to find the TOURIST Information office to book a Gourmet Tour, and also gave me a discount voucher for the Hop on Hop off bus I also enjoyed the 8 th floor bar overlooking the Rhone

« Lovely stay »

The service throughout our stay was excellent. Beds very comfortable and rooms serviced quickly. Breakfast very good and the gluten free options are some of the best we have had in a long time. The ingredients at breakfast was of a very high standard. Hotel centrally located and only a short walk to restaurants and the old town. Will be back next year

« Great hotel in a great spot in Lyon »

A fabulous stay and the staff were friendly and professional. The Hotel was in a great spot on the river and it was a fabulous stay. The breakfast was also wonderful each day.

« Lovely »

Excellent room with a fabulous view over the River, it made my daughter's stay there just perfect as she could see the University where she'll be studying for the next 4 months. The staff were lovely and professional. All areas were very clean. The domestic staff work hard. The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the Sofitel Bellecour.

« A good location »

The hotel is well located but a little corporate and lacks character. Staff were excellent. The cocktail bar was good though the snacks available were disappointing

« Fabulous staff and hotel, we felt spoilt. »

The concierge on August 19th was exceptionally helpful in helping us to park our classic VW camper van. He went out of his way in a friendly manner. It was a fantastic way to be welcomed to the hotel!

« Great location, very comfortable rooms with lovely service »

A perfect location for our one night stay prior to embarking on our river cruise. Staff were friendly. Our late arrival was no issue and a late check out was really nice. The view from breakfast was spectacular. Thank you!

« An excellent example of the Sofitel brand »

Very pleasant stay. Welcoming and helpful staff. Great room and the rooftop bar is a great spot for pre-dinner drinks. We were disappointed that the main restaurant was shut in August but booked the Brasserie. This was the only disappointment. The food was fine but the staff seemed overwhelmed by a restaurant at best half full.
