    We loved towels and a heated towel rack in the bathroom. Musee des confluences was just a short distance away...

    The separate toilet is much too narrow, even for tall and slim people.

    Ideal place for holiday in Lyon. We greatly enjoyed the fact that we chose charlemagne.

    The location is good if you make a stopover and the staff was generally friendly.

    we had chosen a hotel with a restaurant, so if there is a private party there, as in our case, you should at least tell the guest about it, so we came to the hotel at 9pm, tired and hungry, and got nothing! The breakfast was ok, but without the slightest service, because I expect a little more in the 4 star hotel.

    We liked the location and the room in the back building very much. That was our second time at Charlemagne. Our room (superior) was spacious, quiet and, apart from the dust in the corners, clean. The bed was comfortable but too soft. Worn out? We felt comfortable and the staff was always friendly and helpful. We would like to come back to Lyon and Charlemagne!

    Dust in the corners and the bed was too soft/ uneven.

    The hotel was quite good as location near the central square of the town (Bellecour), every saturday there is a market in the road infront of the hotel with antiques! The privilege room was good and clean and the bed comfortable.

    The breakfast was good but a bit expensive for what was offering. The staff was polite and english speaking which is a big issue for Lyon! But the internet connection during the hole weekend was off!!!

    This hotel is a 3 stars hotel, but in my opinion it was more than 3 stars'...My husband and I stayed there for one night, we had a Privilege Double Room... the room had enough space + terrace...it was clean, very quite and it had a good air conditioning inside the room... ( there was no mini bar)

    kind and helpful staff. free private parking (small number of places available),clean and very silent room with air cond.(ask for a room facing the inside court).availability of several bars,brasserie and supermarket just close to the hotel

    location: it's very central but you need to cross the nearby railway station to get to the first metro station (anyway we didn't experience any problem until midnight)

    On first arrival we were given a rather poor room, which had a hole in the ceiling and leaking air-conditioning. We complained and the staff dealt with our complaint promptly; we were given an excellent room, which had been recently redecorated.

    We got a free upgrade to a privillege room. We had a large bed, the room was clean. Bathroom was also nice.

    The privillege part of the hotel was a bit noisy.

    I got the room for a realy cheap fair through bookings.com. Usually the hotelrooms I book are not so big and luxurious because I cant afford them..

    Location: right in Charlemagne square, close to shopping and minutes walk from Lyon Perrache, which is one of Lyon's two main railway stations. Price is more than reasonable for what you get.
