Very Good 8.0
Our best first impression was ruined by the plugged bathroom sink and inability of staff to fix it. They offered another room, but that required re-packing and re-unpacking our things. Otherwise is a plush hotel with excellent amenities and a terrific shower installation.

excellent service and location
Excellent service, really comfortable bed and great location, but the hotel is in need for renovations. Our room door showed so many signs of forced break ins, we were a little worried about security.

Perfect place for a Lyon visit
We visited Lyon for three days as a quick adventure in the midst of a 2-week stay in Paris. The Sofitel was an excellent choice because it's perfectly located in the old city but it's a modern and comfortable hotel. Nice room that seemed recently renovated, excellent breakfast buffet, outstanding service from a hotel-wide staff of charming and helpful people, and check out the roof-top cocktail lounge with views of the city.
