Groupcorner has already done most of the work for you and saves you valuable time.
Of the thousands of accommodation choices we have listed in France and Europe, we have selected options to meet every need, whether for a small group at a teambuilding weekend, or a business seminar for hundreds of employees. In the heart of major French cities or European capitals, we have selected hotels to suit all budgets, from luxury hotels to economical options. In the countryside, by the sea or in the mountains, we offer accommodation as varied as campsites, holiday villages or group lodges. We even have unusual and unique places to stay for an original experience. There is something for everyone, every need, and every budget.
Our travel notes
Traveling to Lyon
The regional capital of Rhône-Alpes enjoys a strategic location in the Rhône Valley, a major activity corridor. Set 450 km away from Paris, and 150 km from Geneva, Lyon is farther away from Northern Europe (700 km from Brussels). Flying, taking the train or driving - all modes of transport lead to Lyon, though some will turn out to be more convenient according to where you live.
Saint-Exupéry multimodal airport is located 25 km East from the city centre. It also harbors a TGV (high-speed train) railway station; you can reach the city center in less than 30 minutes with the Rhône Express shuttle, for 12 to 15 €. The airport hosts both domestic and international lines.
Many travelers prefer to take the train to reach Lyon. Indeed, this option is convenient if you come from Paris (2hrs), Marseilles (1h40), or Geneva (1h50). If you come form Northern Europe or Great Britain however, flying to Lyon is much faster.
Finally, you can also drive to Lyon, which is served by the dense network of highways of the Rhône Valley. This is obviously the most affordable option. If you cannot charter a whole bus for your group trip, try the new regular bus lines that have been developing since the liberalization of the sector started; they offer reasonable rates.
Hotels of all standards for all kinds of groups
With over 1.5 million inhabitants, Lyon is at the core of the second largest French conurbation. It represents a major economic and cultural landmark, at a national scale. Therefore, it is no wonder that Lyon has such a wide array of hotels fully equipped to welcome groups of all sizes. Let's take a tour of the main city districts. Wedged between the River Rhône and the River Saône, the historical centre is called the Presqu’île. This old, charming, lively quarter is listed among the UNESCO World Heritage sites. At the tip of the Presqu’île, the recently renovated Confluence quarter attracts visitors thanks to its "Musée des Confluences" and exhibition centres. Spreading from the Presqu’île, the Croix Rousse hill is a hip quarter with a village-like atmosphere, with small squares, bars and designers shops. On the other side of the Saône, the Fourvière hill proudly displays its iconic Basilica, a symbol for the whole city. Fourvière also harbors the Renaissance Saint-Jean quarter, which attracts both foodies and tourists. Part-Dieu, Lyon's business district, is located Eastwards, on the other side of the Presqu’île. It is the second biggest business landmark in France and also represents another city center for Lyon daily life. North of the Croix-Rousse, the Parc de la Tête d'Or is a major attraction in town. Groupcorner has selected accommodation for all kinds of groups in Lyon. We help you choose the hotels that suit your needs, in terms of location and equipments.
