Le Simplon is much more than a hotel, it’s a family home. Our establishment is designed to make every traveller feel “at home”. Inside, there’s nothing exuberant or flashy: the richness of the place lies in its authentic character. The Hôtel du Simplon is cosy and simple. Let yourself be surprised by an address with a very special harmony, a neighbourhood meeting place, a house with a family DNA where it’s good to live and share.
We could talk about a welcoming hostel in the heart of Lyon, a historic establishment or an inn with a friendly atmosphere… We could say a lot, but never enough to describe every aspect, every detail, every anecdote that makes it so special. In the end, Simplon is both a cosy nest and a hotbed of stories – ours and all yours. Welcome to us, welcome to you!
The Simplon doesn’t really see itself as a 3-star hotel in Perrache… What counts more are the stars in the eyes of its customers. Some even say that the Simplon is a boutique hotel: a place of character, family and warmth.
Each of our rooms will offer you a singular view of the city of Lyon. A photo of an architectural detail, a piece of period furniture, an intriguing object… you’ll find something to arouse your curiosity or provoke amazement. Because every detail counts, we’ve slipped an element of the city into each of our rooms. Step outside the door and take a journey towards the secret face of this multi-faceted city.
Each of the hotel’s 37 rooms offers a unique setting with inimitable decor. Comfort comes first: welcome products are available at reception.
Whether you’re travelling with the family, exploring the city with friends, opting for a romantic getaway or taking a solo break for work, we’ve got the right room for you. Le Simplon will always open its doors to you!
A superb corner room: bright and comfortable for cosy travellers.
Cocooning, cosy, functional… This room is ideal for a business trip or a short solo stay in Lyon.
Why travel with several people if you’re going to be separated at nightfall? This room puts sharing at the heart of your trip.
Le Simplon is part of Aubergistes Lyonnais: the first hotel group in France to become a company with a mission. As such, its reason for living is turned towards others: the environment and society are at the heart of its concerns.
In practical terms…
The Hotel du Simplon boasts an exceptional location: 50 metres from Place Carnot, 2 steps from Perrache station, in the city centre, on the peninsula, in the Ainay district…This central location will enable you to discover the city on foot, by bike or by public transport, all directly from the hotel.
When the weather is fine, take your bike along the banks of the Rhône and head for the Parc de la Tête d’Or for a picnic in the shade of the hundred-year-old trees.
The Ainay district offers boutiques with a strong identity and an alternative offering. Need to get some height? From the historic district of Vieux Lyon, take the pleasant climb up to Fourvière and its breathtaking views over the capital of Gaul.
