The Simplon is much more than a hotel, it is a family home. Our establishment is designed to make each traveler feel “at home”. Inside, there is nothing exuberant or flashy, the richness of the setting lies in its authentic character. The Simplon hotel is cozy and simple. Let yourself be surprised by an address with a special harmony, a neighborhood meeting place, a house with a family DNA that is synonymous with good living and sharing. We could talk about a welcoming inn in the heart of Lyon, a historical establishment or an inn with a friendly atmosphere…We could say a lot, but never enough to describe each aspect, each detail and each anecdote that makes it so unique. In the end, Simplon is both a cozy nest and a home for stories, ours as well as yours. Welcome to our home, welcome to your home!
A photo of an architectural detail, antique furniture, an intriguing object, etc. You will find something to arouse your curiosity or amaze you. Because every detail counts, we have placed an element of the city in each of our rooms. Step outside the door and follow a path towards the secret face of this multifaceted city.
The Simplon hotel benefits from an exceptional location: 50 meters from the Carnot square, a few steps from the Perrache train station, in the city center, on the peninsula, in the Ainay district… This central location will let you discover the city on foot, by bike or by public transport, directly from the hotel
On sunny days, take advantage of the banks of the Rhône by bike and go to the Tête d’Or park for a picnic in the shade of the 100-year-old trees. Feel like a shopping trip? The Ainay district offers boutiques with a strong identity and an alternative selection. Need to see the big picture? From the historic neighborhood of Old Lyon, start the pleasant ascent to reach Fourvière and its unobstructed view of the capital of the Gauls.
