Hotel Globe et Cecil

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

This chic family-run four-star feels like an upmarket mansion – mixing 19th-century features with more contemporary fabrics and furniture.

Its location, bang in the middle of Presqu’Ile, puts you in the heart of shopping HQ, with high-end boutiques all around and sweeping Place Bellecour (the vast, café-lined main square) just at the end of the road.

Food-wise you’re in for a treat, thanks to Le Comptoir Cecil, the hotel’s hip restaurant, where locally-sourced produce is turned into innovative takes on Lyonnais cuisine. At breakfast expect piles of scrumptious local fare – like pastries, cheese and Lyon’s famed charcuterie.

Surrounding area

The hotel couldn’t be more central, with place Bellecour just metres away and high-end shops all around, so the area is always lively – but never too noisy.

The streets are grand around here –this is the chicest part of town – with 19th-century facades, replete with elegant stone-work and wrought-iron balustrades. Cross the nearby Pont Bonaparte and you’re in Renaissance-era Old (Vieux) Lyon, famed for its traboules, unique covered passageways.
