The 3-star hotel in Lyon 2

HISTORYThe Simplon, a travel icon

The Simplon was originally a mythical mountain pass for cyclists and hikers. Located in the Swiss Alps, it inspired us to build our hotel’s identity. Its proximity to the Perrache train station makes it a real invitation to escape with the imaginary ideal of the railway, the Orient Express, the bicycle and the stages of the Tour de France. Like a stopover after a long walk or bike ride, the Simplon hotel is the inn where you want to relax and share a moment of conviviality.
