The Globe & Cecil is one of Lyon’s oldest hotels, if not the oldest. Since the construction of the building in 1866, people and companies have succeeded one another: travellers on holiday, tourists, romantic stays, business travellers, seminars, events… A constant coming and going 24 hours a days and 7 days a week since more than 150 years that has charged our walls full of history, and undeniably the rooms ! Our 60 rooms are all different and each one of them bears a part of the history and the spirit of the hotel : which style do you like ? Modern ? Traditional ? Urban ? Let us know your preferences and we will endeavour to find THE room that suits you.
Globe & Cecil Hotel is proud to be an independent establishment and not to belong to any big group. We are only affiliated to the brand Les Collectionneurs® which regroups charming boutique hotels all around France, and even Europe.
The Globe & Cecil Hotel takes advantage of an exceptional location : 50 metres away from the Place Bellecour and the Pavillon Only Lyon (tourist office), just a couple of doors from the Rue de la République, between the Hôtel de Ville (City Hall), the Ainay neighbourhood, Old Lyon and the Part Dieu… This central place lets you fully enjoy your stay.
Looking for a romantic ride ? Cross the Saône river and climb the Fourvière hill ! Rather a cultural one ? The buildings in the peninsula seem to have been built for you ! You would like to relax together as a family ? The Piscine du Rhône (a swimming-pool) stands just across the bridge ! More information about the tourist activities in Lyon on Only Lyon website.
