Sofitel Lyon Bellecour, Lyon
All was fine except the mattress.
The hotel is clean, great service, nice buffet breakfast. Our room was fine except for the bed which was quite saggy. I felt like I was in a divot at night and my back was a bit irritated in the morning. I was tempted to find the mattress tag to see how old it was, but decided not to rip all the covers off. I did tell the woman at the desk when we checked out that the mattress definitely needed replacing. Other than that, the area was very convenient to get around easily, either walking or using the redbus. Many restaurants nearby. The concierge was very helpful.
