I stayed four nights in this centrally- located hotel, situated in the best area for shopping, an easy walk to wonderful restaurants and across from Vieux Lyon, just crossing one of the Saone bridges. The hotel is boutique, small, so ask for a room with balcony and view to the Place des Celestins, five minute-walk to rue Merciere and to... More

This hotel really exceeded my expectations. The location was outstanding, I did not have to use the metro once. The room was really quite nice. The elevator is very tiny but stairs were very easy. There was a bit of construction noise near by that might wake you up in the morning if your window is open. My main issue... More

This hotel is reasonably priced given the excellent location near Bellecour and the Old Town. The room was spacious, well appointed and comfortable. When I checked out I was very surprised to be charged €13.50 per person per night for a (very basic) breakfast. Had I realised , would have gone to any local café instead.

My wife and I spent four days there and found it to be an ideal location in Lyon. It was an easy walk to Vieux Lyon and the Soane. Hotel room was comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. It also was convenient and close to the Metro .

Ideally situated within walking distance to many of the highlights on both sides of the river. The staff are outstanding particularly Elise who went out of her way to ensure our stay was the best it could be. The hotel is small but really tastefully decorated. Not at all hotel chain like. A very French elevator makes an easy journey... More

Hotel des Artistes has a fantastic location in the Bellecour neighborhood of Lyon - outstanding shopping, excellent restaurants and theater are all just outside the door. Historic Vieux-Lyon is also easily accessible via one of the many bridges crossing the Saone River. The hotel itself is appealing - with period decor and rooms, which although quite small, feature comfortable beds... More

I recently returned from Lyon, my first visit there. This is a great little hotel, well situated in the heart of the Presqu'ile, a short walk over the Saone River to Vieux Lyon, and close to a pedestrian mall area. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful whenever I had a question. I had a very nice room... More

I have stayed for one night in Hotel des Artists. Pros: Excellent location, in the heart of the Presqu'Ile and a footbridge away from the Vieux-Lyon. Very nice and helpful staff Despite a common area that seemed a bit dated, the was nicely renovated. Very large room. We chose twin beds, and they were wider than the usual standard. Confortable...

Very good hotel, small frontage and rooms quite small but staff excellent and all clean and well run. The location of course is very central and the main shopping is walking distance, Metro 5 minutes at place des Celestin. You need to change train from Airport but it is quite a cheap way to get into town and I got... More
