Arteloge Group in Lyon
Who are we?
A family affair…
The Giorgi family’s hospitality business began in 1979 with the opening of Hôtel des Congrès, an ideally located three-star property opposite Lyon’s Tête d’Or Park.
Forty-two years later, the Arteloge group has become the leading independent hospitality group in Lyon with a collection of six properties, each with its own identity.
Six restaurants, a spa, a travel agency and high-end furnished rentals.
The 300 employees of this family-run company, managed by Eric Giorgi are driven by their passion to provide truly excellent service.

GO GREEN Programme
Having been mindful of the environmental impact of the hospitality industry for many years, the Arteloge Group has developed an environmentally responsible programme called GO GREEN.
This is a collective environmental approach which each member of Arteloge’s staff is made aware of when joining the company. It involves a series of practical and specific initiatives, from raising awareness to the search for quality labels.
Read on to find out more about some of these initiatives:
- Hotels with the Accueil Vélo/Bike Friendly label, to promote soft mobility
- Lyon Métropole Hotel was the first hotel in Lyon to be given this label.
- A hybrid vehicle fleet for all our teams’ travel.
- Replacing plastic bottles with CRYO microfiltered water
- Collecting and recycling soap in our hotels for humanitarian projects.
- Short supply chains and Fairtrade products and ingredients. (e.g. Café Richard®)
- Using non-polluting cleaning products, most of which have environmental quality labels
- Guests can choose whether or not to have their towels changed.
The Arteloge group also focuses on the sustainability of its investment projects: buildings with High Quality Environmental standards (ParKest Hotel), thermo-regulating panoramic glass canopy (Villa Florentine), centralised distribution platform and more.
