The main characteristics of the Services are presented on the Hotel's website.

It is the Customer's responsibility to familiarize himself/herself with them before making a reservation. The choice and purchase of a Service is the sole responsibility of the Customer.

These conditions apply to the exclusion of all other conditions, in particular those applicable to other Service marketing channels.

The Customer is hereby informed that the Hotel has entered into partnership agreements with third-party travel service providers in order to enable the Customer to search for, select and reserve rooms in the Hotel by using the services offered by these partners on their websites. Any reservation of hotel rooms made under these conditions implies the Customer's full and unreserved consultation and acceptance of the service provider's special terms and conditions, the terms and conditions of sale of the rate reserved and these general terms and conditions of sale. The Customer declares that he/she has obtained all necessary information from the Hotel, which is available on the website.

The present General Terms and Conditions of Sale are accessible at all times on the Hotel's website and shall prevail, where applicable, over any other version or any other contradictory document.

In the absence of proof to the contrary, the data recorded in the service provider's computer system constitutes proof of all transactions entered into with the Customer. Thus, the entry of bank details, acceptance of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale, the Tariff Terms and Conditions of Sale or the Reservation Request, has the same value between the Hotel and the Customer as a handwritten signature on paper. The computerized records stored in the Hotel's computer systems shall be kept under reasonable security conditions and shall be considered proof of communication, orders and payments between the Hotel and the Customer.

The Hotel shall keep the written record of the conclusion of the contract in electronic or paper format for a maximum period of 5 years.

In accordance with the French Data Protection Act of January 6, 1978, the Customer has the right to access, rectify and object to all personal data at any time, by writing to Hôtel Le Grand Barnum - 40 avenue de la table de pierre - 69340 LYON, France, with proof of identity.

The Customer acknowledges having the capacity required to contract and acquire the Services offered on the Hotel's website.

As these General Terms and Conditions of Sale may be subject to subsequent modifications, the version applicable to the Customer's purchase is that in force on the website at the date of the reservation.

These General Terms and Conditions of Sale are applicable while the services offered by the Hotel are online on the Hotel's website. The Hotel reserves the right to temporarily or permanently close access to its Website.


The Customer selects the services he/she wishes to reserve on the website, as follows:

The Customer undertakes to complete the information requested on the reservation request and attests to the truthfulness and accuracy of the information provided.

Contractual information is presented in French and is confirmed at the latest when the reservation is validated by the Customer.

For bookings made exclusively via the Internet, a booking is registered on the Service Provider's website when the Customer accepts these General Terms and Conditions of Sale by ticking the appropriate box and validates the booking. The Customer has the opportunity to check the details of his reservation, its total price and to correct any errors before confirming his acceptance (article 1127-2 of the French Civil Code). Confirmation implies acceptance of the present General Sales Conditions in their entirety, and constitutes proof of the sales contract.

It is therefore the Customer's responsibility to check the accuracy of the reservation and to immediately report any errors.

The sale of Services will only be considered definitive once the Service Provider has sent the Customer confirmation of acceptance of the reservation by e-mail, and once the Customer has received payment in full.

Any reservation made on the Hotel's website constitutes the formation of a distance contract between the Customer and the Supplier.

The Hotel reserves the right to cancel or refuse any reservation from a Customer with whom there is a dispute over payment of a previous reservation.

Each reservation is nominative and may under no circumstances be transferred to a third party.


In the event of cancellation up to 48 hours before the date of arrival, no charge will be made.

For cancellations less than 48 hours prior to arrival, the cost of the first night will be charged.

In the event of late cancellation, no-show or shortened stay, the value of one night per room reserved will be charged by the hotel as compensation.


The Services offered by the Provider are provided at the rates in force on the Hotel's website at the time the reservation is recorded by the Provider. Prices are expressed in Euros, excluding VAT and including VAT.

Prices take into account any discounts granted by the Service Provider under the conditions specified on the Hotel's website.

These rates are firm and non-revisable during their period of validity, as indicated on the Hotel's website, the Provider reserving the right, outside this period of validity, to modify prices at any time.

Rates are indicated before and at the time of booking by the Customer.

Rates are confirmed to the Customer in the Hotel's commercial currency and include VAT (excluding tourist tax). They include VAT at the rate applicable on the day of booking; any change in the applicable VAT rate will automatically be reflected in the rates indicated on the billing date. The same applies to any change or introduction of new legal or regulatory taxes imposed by the competent authorities.

Rates are increased by tourist tax.

Unless otherwise stated on the Site, ancillary services (breakfast, etc...) are not included in the price.

An invoice is drawn up by the Service Provider and given to the Customer when the reserved Services are provided.


The price must be paid in full by the Customer no later than the day of departure. Cash, cheques and credit cards - Visa, MasterCard, American Express - are accepted.

At the time of booking, the customer must provide his bank details, specifying the name of the credit card, the credit card number, the validity date (the credit card must be valid until the end date of the stay) and the cryptogram.

The Customer may be asked to show proof of identity as part of procedures to prevent credit card fraud.

The Service Provider shall not be obliged to provide the Services ordered by the Customer unless the price has been paid in full in accordance with the above conditions.

Payments made by the Customer will only be considered final once the amounts due have been received by the Service Provider.


The Services reserved by the Customer, which include the reservation of hotel rooms and ancillary services, will be provided in accordance with the following terms and conditions, under the conditions set forth in these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, supplemented by the Tariff Terms and Conditions of Sale, which the Customer has read and accepted when making a reservation on the Hotel's website.

The Hotel is a non-smoking area. The customer will be held responsible for any direct and/or indirect, consequential damage resulting from smoking in the Hotel. They will therefore be liable for the full cost of cleaning and restoring the damaged item or area to its original state.

Pets, provided they are kept on a leash or in a cage in the common areas of the establishment, may be accepted in accordance with the hotel's current policy, subject to payment of a supplement. For reasons of hygiene, pets are not allowed in the dining rooms.

Any personal belongings left in the customer's room or in the public areas of the hotel are the customer's sole responsibility. The Hotel cannot be held responsible for the loss, theft, deterioration or damage caused to said belongings.

The customer accepts and undertakes to use the room with due care. Any behavior contrary to good morals and public order will lead the Hotel to ask the Customer to leave the establishment without any compensation or refund if payment has already been made. If no payment has yet been made, the customer must pay the price of the nights consumed before leaving the establishment.

The customer will be held responsible for all direct and/or indirect, consequential damage caused by him/her in the reserved room or within the hotel. Consequently, he/she undertakes to compensate the Hotel for the amount of said damage, without prejudice to any damages and interest that may be due, as well as legal and court costs incurred by the Hotel.

WIFI access enabling customers to connect to the Internet is provided in accordance with the Hotel's current policy. The customer undertakes to ensure that the computer resources made available by the Hotel will not be used in any way for the purposes of reproduction, representation, making available or communication to the public of works or objects protected by copyright or related rights, such as texts, images, photographs, musical works, audiovisual works, software and video games, without the authorization of the holders of the rights provided for in Books I and II of the Intellectual Property Code, where such authorization is required. Should the customer fail to comply with the aforementioned obligations, he or she runs the risk of being accused of counterfeiting (article L.335-3 of the French Intellectual Property Code), punishable by a fine of 300,000 euros and three years' imprisonment. The customer is also required to comply with the security policy of the hotel's Internet service provider, including the rules governing the use of security measures implemented to prevent the unlawful use of IT resources, and to refrain from any action that may undermine the effectiveness of these measures.

Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the room will be made available to the Customer on the day of arrival at 2 pm and the Customer will leave the room on the day of departure at 12 pm. Failing this, an additional night will be charged to the Customer. Customers must check their departure date. In the event of early departure, a fee equivalent to one night's accommodation will be charged, unless the Customer has notified the Hotel at least 24 hours prior to departure.

The Service Provider undertakes to use its best efforts to provide the Services booked by the Customer, on a best-efforts basis.

The Customer shall have a period of 8 days from the date of departure from the Hotel in which to express any reservations or complaints concerning the provision of the Services, in writing, to the Hotel, together with all supporting documents.

No claim will be validly accepted if the Customer fails to comply with these formalities and deadlines.


In the absence of reservations or complaints expressly made within this time limit by the Customer upon receipt of the Services, the latter will be deemed to conform to the reservation, in terms of quantity and quality.

In the event of an exceptional event, force majeure or the impossibility of making the reserved room available to the Customer, the Hotel reserves the right to accommodate the Customer in whole or in part in a hotel of equivalent category, for services of the same nature and subject to the prior agreement of the Customer.


In accordance with article L 221-28 of the French Consumer Code, the Customer does not have the right of withdrawal provided for in article L 221-18 of the French Consumer Code, given the nature of the services provided.

The contract is therefore definitively concluded as soon as the reservation is made by the Customer in accordance with the terms and conditions specified in these General Terms and Conditions of Sale.


The Provider guarantees, in accordance with legal provisions and without additional payment, the Customer against any lack of conformity or latent defect resulting from a failure to perform the Services reserved and actually paid for under the conditions and according to the terms defined in these General Terms and Conditions of Sale.

The Services provided via the Hotel's website comply with the regulations in force in France. The Service Provider may not be held liable in the event of non-compliance with the legislation of the country in which the Services are provided, which it is up to the Customer, who is solely responsible for the choice of Services requested, to check.


In application of the French Data Protection Act 78-17 of January 6, 1978, we remind you that the personal data requested from the Customer is necessary for the processing of his/her reservation and, in particular, for the preparation of invoices.

The Hotel may also send its customers newsletters, promotional offers and satisfaction surveys by e-mail.
