Dating back 2,000 years, the French city of Lyon, on the banks of the mighty Rhône and Saône rivers, has much to offer – from historic winding streets and grand squares to vast open-air arcades crammed with boutiques and gourmet eateries. Making a bold, rather more modern statement in the heart of the city is the recently refurbished Radisson Blu Hotel, Lyon, housed in the landmark Tour Part-Dieu – a skyscraper which. with 32 floors, is among the tallest buildings in town. A sleek vision in glass and stone, its unique pyramid shape looms high above the rooftops.
Lift your spirits in more ways than one in the appropriately named (and brand new) Celest Bar and restaurant up on the 32nd floor, which serves up show-stopping cuisine, wine tasting and cocktails with spectacular views over the city spread below. Also offering panoramic vistas are the well thought-out, newly updated guest rooms, which come with all you need for a supremely comfortable stay. Elsewhere, you can make use of the well equipped in-house gym, which comes with the latest cardio equipment.
How to Get There
Nice and functional rooms. Very functional bathroom. Exceptional view on the city.
Excellent breakfast. Efficient personnel. Close to the railway station.
All amenities. Large TV. Excellent blinds. Fast handling at reception.
The hotel has a general high level, and is well situated in the city close to Les Halles Bocuse and the nearby restaurants. And then add a superb skyline view and the train station close by (but not too close).
Reception is on the 32nd. floor. The concierge (when available) is on the first. There is a lot of construction in the area so it's difficult to find the entrance. There is a mall nearby and the Part Dieu train station is next door. Not a great neighborhood for vacationers except for Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse, the indoor market.
The rooms are fine but the bar and restaurant are quite highly priced for the offerings.
Wait for the construction to be over and maybe things will change.
