Halal Hotels Lyon

Islam is the second most widely professed religion in France (behind only Christianity). France has the largest number of Muslims in the Western world, primarily due to migration from MaghrebiWest African, and Middle Eastern countries.
According to the latest Eurobarometer poll (2019), on the other hand, the Muslim population in France is 5% of the total population
By Crescent Rating, France is 32nd rated among most Muslim-friendly countries.
How many mosques are there in France?
 In all, there are 2,200 mosques in use in France that were built expressly as mosques.
The Muslim friendly hotel means a hotel that has Islamic characteristics that can provide basic facilities that are more friendly to Muslim customers such as a Qibla direction indicator, the availability of prayer tools, the presence of halal food / list of nearby restaurants that provide halal food.

Like other tourists, Muslim travelers coming from Islamic countries have particular requirements when they choose the destination for their vacation. Among these requirements, Muslims are concerned about the availability of halal compliant foods (no pork or alcohol in food) and a clean place to pray.


Many international hotels in Lyon do serve halal food that is slaughtered in accordance with the teachings of Islamic Sharia and is free of any substances forbidden by Islam such as pork and alcohol.

Other Islamic countries such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Oman and Brunei continue to be popular with Muslim tourists. Among non-OIC countries, Singapore, Thailand, the UK, Japan and Taiwan remain the top five respectively, but show improved scores on the index.

So named because Lyon is at the heart of the ancient art and trade of silk, the Silky is a modest hotel in the heart of Lyon which went out of our way to make us welcome. If you are familiar with small French hotels this place won’t come as any surprise.
But the welcome was warm, the admin straight forward, and there we no glitches. Rooms are small but cost and the place is clean. Rooms are not entirely soundproof so if you are going to swing from the ceiling be aware your neighbours will be sharing the fun.
Or some of it at least.
Great location only metres from the Metro and within easy walking distance of a vast number of Lyon’s attractions. Breakfast is an unusually generous spread for a buffet. We enjoyed staying here.
There aren’t many hotels that exceed expectations these days. This place did for me with the little extras that made the stay even more enjoyable. They staff are incredible and knowledgeable and offered great meal advice. The lobby has free water to take out or to your room at night. There is a coffee and sweets bar in the lobby also.
The rooms are perfect for the needs of a tourist and the beds comfy and the bathrooms slick. It’s being well maintained and the location in Lyon means we will definitely stay there again.

Situated 2 minutes’ walk from the Musée des Confluences and 10 minutes’ walk from a shopping centre, MOB HOTEL Lyon Confluence features a restaurant and free WiFi throughout the property. The hotel has a terrace and guests can enjoy a meal at the restaurant.

The suites offer a refrigerator, a coffee machine, a safe, a seating area and a separate toilet. The double rooms include a desk. Both double rooms and suites have air conditioning, a safety deposit box and a private bathroom.

There is a 24-hour front desk at the property. Yoga, swedish fit and pilates classes are organised on site. A pop up store is available in MOB HOTEL Lyon Confluence.

A block from the Saône River, this trendy hotel with a striking modern facade is a 2-minute walk from a tram stop, and 3 minutes’ walk from the science and anthropology exhibits at the Musée des Confluences.

The compact, hip rooms come with complimentary Wi-Fi, safes and balconies; some have river views. Upgraded rooms add record players, living areas and sofabeds; iPad rentals are available.

Amenities include an industrial-chic restaurant/bar serving organic fare, plus a library, a terrace and table tennis. Regular live music, rooftop parties and yoga classes are offered.

Best of all, the staff: AMAZING! No matter what question I had (can I borrow an iphone cable? is there a tram stop nearby? what does this word mean in french?) they were super helpful, friendly and fun. Check-in as well as checkout was also super smooth.

Also, everyone in the staff spoke perfect english (which was helpful since I only know some ten words in french…)

Second, the room: WOW! The bed was super comfortable (I never wanted to get out of it), the soap smelled wonderful, the water pressure in the shower was just perfect, the terrace was great (I was a bit unlucky with the view, but hey one can’t have everything), and the temperature adjustment worked perfectly.

I’ve seen some complaints here about the lack of wardrobe space, but there are 6-8 hangers around the room and space for your bag etc above the desk, so unless you are staying for more than a week and want all your clothes out of the bag for the whole duration of that time you should be fine!

Third, the rest of the hotel: YES! It is 100% hipster, but in a fun rather than annoying kind of way ( I am NOT 25 and was in Lyon for business ).

Besides looking very cool I also LOVED that they have a laundry room which is free to use for hotel guests (the only thing you have to pay for is detergent).

Furthermore, Wifi is free and fast = a deal breaker for me in terms of considering returning to a hotel.

Fourth, the restaurant: YUM! I had dinner there twice and their pizzas and meze is amazing. (The only downside is that there is way to few waiters for the size of the restaurant, and although they were very friendly and helpful i felt sorry for them having to constantly run to make it work.).

The breakfast was also really good (but I missed vegetables, e.g. some tomatoes, and more cheese options). If you prefer not to pay extra for the breakfast buffé there is a small juice bar in the reception area that makes coffee and sells some various snacks (and, off course, fresh made juice).

Fifth, location: GREAT! This is a bit off the tourist area ( = a good thing) but still close to some major sites and with great communication: one of the cities three major tram lines stops just 3 minutes walk from the hotel and so does the Lyon city tour bus (if you are into that kind of stuff).

There are a bus stop just outside the hotel + other tramlines close by.

3. Hôtel Vaubecour 2* – Muslim Friendly Hotels Lyon France

Hôtel Vaubecour is located in Lyon, on the 2nd floor of a building. Lyon’s Museum of Fine Arts is 1.6 km away and Lyon Perrache Train Station is 40 m from the hotel. Free WiFi access is available.

Accessed via a lift, the non-smoking guest rooms feature a desk and a TV with satellite channels. The private bathrooms have a shower. Hôtel Vaubecour offers a free daily cleaning service for your convenience.

Breakfast is available, which can be enjoyed in the breakfast room. A library and board games are at guests’ disposal.

Set in a Haussmann building and a 4-minute walk from Ampère – Victor Hugo metro station, this refined hotel is within a 10-minute walk of both the Musée des Tissus et des Arts Décoratifs (a decoration museum) and the public square of Place Bellecour.

The soundproof rooms are individually decorated in a classic style with patterned headboards, period panelling and contemporary bathrooms. They include flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Some feature original ornamental fireplaces and balconies.

English and continental breakfast (fee) is served in a dining room with a balcony.

Tastefully decorated, each room has its original flavour and all are equipped with sink, shower, WC, smart TV and unlimited wi-fi in unlimited access and mini-refrigerator in our junior suites will make you live a unique experience of hotels of independent charm.

Hotel Vaubecour is perfectly situated for the Old Town in Lyon, as well as the main shopping area. Both are less than 10 minutes on foot. We loved the fact that this was independently managed and smaller than chain hotels – it doesn’t have all the amenities like a bar or restaurant but there are plenty of those within a short stroll.

It does have the advantage of being hidden away and the neighbourhood is very quiet. Our room wasn’t enormous, but it was very comfortable and clean, with an excellent modern en-suite shower room and bright furnishings. In France, tea and coffee making facilities are unusual, but we were able to make a cuppa whenever we wanted one.

We opted not to have breakfast, but there is a small breakfast room which also doubles as a sitting room during the day.

The hotel is on the second floor of a building and the entrance lobby isn’t that attractive, but don’t be put off. It feels like you are going into a residential apartment building, which in fact you are as the remaining floors are privately occupied.

The stairs are hard work and the lift is very small (obviously not an original feature in an old building) but at least there is a lift. The only other disadvantage was the shortage of storage space in the bedroom, there was a very small wardrobe, but no drawers, so we lived out of our suitcases mainly, which is never ideal.

There aren’t many hotels of this type in Lyon and we would definitely stay here again!
