Good Hotel Guide Review
“What a remarkable place,” says a visitor to this designer hotel in the lively narrow streets of the trendy St-Jean quarter of Vieux Lyon. Four adjacent Renaissance mansions have been converted by Jocelyne and Jean-Louis Sibuet to give a “breathtakingly contemporary interior”. There is a “magnificent atrium, with dark red cloisters and stunning modern paintings” and “lovely gardens are scattered behind at all levels: many can be entered directly from the rooms”. It can take time to learn to operate the high-tech fittings in bedrooms and bathrooms (one visitor called the hotel “a triumph of design over function”). But “everything was immaculate”; the staff are “helpful”, “warm and bright”. The gastronomic restaurant has a Michelin star under chef Anthony Bonnet, and there’s a less formal cafe with a terrace and adjoining delicatessen. New for autumn 2015 is La Petite Loge, in the former Masonic temple; as well as food and wine tasting demonstrations, guests can receive cooking lessons or dine at the Chef’s Table. There is a roof garden, a wine cellar (tastings are held), and a full spa, complete with a sauna, hammam and small mosaic-tiled swimming pool.
