The 4-star Hotel in Lyon City Center

The History Lyon's First Hotel

The first hotel in the Aubergistes Lyonnais collection; Le Globe & Cecil, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site, is one of Lyon’s oldest hotels. Built in 1860 by Journoud, a brilliant architect, it is located just fifty meters from the famous Place Bellecour, the Tourist Office (Pavillon Only Lyon), with an exceptionally central location.

The hotel’s name is derived from its history, resolutely turned towards the world; historically named the Grand Hôtel du Globe. Only in the early 20th century, after being acquired by an English Lord named Cecil, did the establishment receive its final name, combining a lovely surname with an invitation to travel.

  • Timeless charm – Step through the door, and an entire spirit unfolds – a strong identity in a unique style, that of a charming local living space.
  • Unparalleled comfort – Quality bedding, warm welcome, personalization, and cocoon moments complement the services of this elegant, historically charming establishment.
