We only stayed one night, but enjoyed our stay very much. If we ever find ourselves in Clermont-Ferrand again, we'll definitely be back!

On the Small Side but Extremely Convenient

Posted Aug 21, 2017 on Orbitz
Centrally located, very clean with modern touches, and adjoins a respectable restaurant. The room is on the small side, but location, cleanliness, and helpful staff more than compensate.

Perfect location

Posted Jul 12, 2017
We had a room with windows onto the square below, and the cathedral in front of us. Lovely modern, clean, comfortable room and a great restaurant bar with lots of outside seating so you can watch the world go by.... Perfectly located in the old part of the city I highly recommend this hotel if you're in Clermont Ferrand for a few days

Nice hotel in a great location.

Posted Jun 4, 2017
Pros: Helpful staff. Comfortable, well equipped room. Nice restaurant. Great location.
Cons: Staircase/elevator - some steps must be navigated; this could be an issue for some people. Shower floor was slippery.
Location: A central downtown location. Many restaurants nearby, though hotel restaurant is also very good. Nearby historical churches and a park.
The staff enabled me to check in a little early upon my arrival from the airport. It was easy to get to my business location, local restaurants and local sights such as historical churches and parks. Tram stop, bus stop and taxi stand were adjacent to hotel. The room was well equipped, clean and quiet. Breakfast (extra charge) was very good.

Disappointing / Inconvenient

Posted May 15, 2017 on Hotels
Nice rooms, but there are quite a few stairs to reach the lift, then there are some stairs again to reach the room... And staff wouldn't help! Overpriced.

Hotel is very central and close to everything. Staff were helpful. Room 22 was noisy from the restaurant till early hours. Shower tray was very slippy and dangerous. Meal in the restaurant at night was poor

Le Lion roars a big hearty welcome

Posted Jan 24, 2017 on Hotels
Le Lion was a most comfortable recently refurbished hotel situated in the heart of the old city. The rooms were well appointed with wood floors and modern lighting. The bath room shower boasted an enormous shower head to provide an invigorating start to the day. The people of Clermont we met were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to welcome us as supporters of Exeter Chiefs rugby club. An excellent long weekend. I will be coming back

The rooms are great, the staff are nice, and the surrounding area is terrific, but in France, people tend to smoke. Even though this hotel is supposed to be non-smoking, guests smoked, and we needed to move rooms. The showers are beautiful, but you need to run them for 10 minutes (!) until the water gets warm.
