Conveniently located in historic Vieux Lyon within walking distance of many of the city sights, Collège Hotel is a novel property with a light-hearted school theme. Contemporary design, unconventional detailing and good value for money make it a rewarding base.
Cour des Loges
Once a wealthy banker’s mansion, then a prestigious college, the Cour des Loges is today a five-star hotel set in a series of buildings dating from the 14th to the 17th centuries. This upscale retreat is centrally located in Vieux Lyon with the city’s primary attractions including various silk ateliers (workshops) and Michelin-starred restaurants within steps of the hotel.
The 60 rooms and suites are tucked away between a series of courtyards, stairways, patios and balconies and all have their own character and decor. The overwhelming theme throughout the hotel is Italian Renaissance with lavish indulgences matched by all modern comforts.
There are two restaurants on the premises. The fine dining ‘Les Loges’, which has one Michelin star and is set in an internal courtyard, and the more casual bistro Le Café-Épicerie, which has outdoor seating in warm weather.
Somehow, the hotel has also managed to fit in a series of hanging gardens, an indoor pool and spa, as well as a cooking school and a rooftop garden.
