Stayed here in July and loved it, could not think of staying anywhere else on my return visit - was like coming home. Charming hotel and impeccable service. Beautiful spacious rooms, fabulous food and concierge and front desk staff could not have been more helpful! It was a birthday trip and the only of three hotels who actually did something special for me for my birthday (which was actually the day before). Welcome champagne and an in room surprise. Will stay here every visit to Lyon!

Villa Florentine is a wonderful unique experience. This small hotel is well-worth a visit, but you need to be aware it is not for everyone. There are steps involved no matter where you are in the hotel, and the layout is confusing. That also adds to the charm of the place. Also, the restaurant is one of the best you will ever experience. I highly recommend having a meal there.
