The Simplon is definitely a favorite hotel in Lyon. When you enter this establishment for the first time, you immediately feel good, at once at home, but also a bit elsewhere… This establishment is a real “grandmother’s house”, imbued with a welcoming atmosphere, whose decoration skillfully combines the charm of the authentic with original and surprising ambiences. If you stay with us, you will notice all these details, the little things that make Simplon a venue with an inimitable identity. The harmony of colors and materials is designed to make each traveler feel good, to recharge their batteries, while outside, the city is moving, awakening and alive!
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.
The Simplon is a genuine inn in the noble sense of the word!
An animated area, a refuge, a rallying point… without luxury or glitz.
A place to share for those who love to travel and meet people along the way.
A venue designed as a well-deserved stopover.

At the Simplon Hotel, you will also find Les Petites Cantines. This is a network of neighborhood canteens, open to all, whose objective is to develop local ties through the preparation and sharing of meals. We propose to local residents, neighborhood employees and anyone who so desires, to come cook and gather around a table in a participative way: everyone can cut the bread, serve his neighbor, prepare the coffee… and even do the dishes! We propose sustainable food at a freely chosen price, so everyone can give what they want and what they can.
