Pleasant hotel, bang in the middle of the city and easily accessable for Old Lyon and also the shops. Breakfast was pretty good for a french breakfast, plenty on offer plus eggs made to order. The hotel has a lift, which was very useful as my room was on the third floor and after a hard days sightseeing was essential.

Great location, decent value for money, enjoyed the design of the room and reception area. Friendly staff. Overall very clean but I could see dust in some of the surface areas eg welcome leaflet/telephone. Small thing but could pay more attention to details.

Located on place Celestin, adjacent to a good underground parking, this place had everything we needed. It is close to the pedestrian shopping streets in a chic neighborhood, and just a half block from the river. We plan to stay here again on our next visit to Lyon.

This was the perfect location for a trip to Lyon, within walking distance of the old town, near the market, near public transportation. The people running the desk with kind and personable. The first day the internet was sketchy, but they knew it, worked on it, and got it back up for the rest of the trip. The room was... More

We love to eat and drink well. Lyon may be best place in Europe to do so. The Hotel des Artistes was a great home base for exploring the famed restaurants and bouchons. Bouchons serve traditional Lyonnaise dishes and local (principally Beaujolais and Rhone) wines - flavorful and satisfying. The staff were helpful in helping us identify highlights of Lyon.... More

We were looking for a centrally situated affordable overnight stay in our travels through Lyon. Happily we found the refurbished Hotel Des Artistes, on the Place des Celestins opposite the Celestine Theatre. Hugely convenient to the shopping and sights of the city, yet a quiet street with the advantage of a hugely convenient parking garage across from the hotel. Elise... More

Arriving in Lyon by train on one of the hottest days on Long vacation. I thought that the Air B&B place my son picked out ( they live in Italy and travel extensively in the EU) was OK but wanted AC to ensure a better nights sleep. My son helped me look in the greater,very busy and very happening hood... More

Superb location, nice rooms, nice staff. Nothing fancy here but a clean comfortable room with a nice walk in shower and all the amenities one needs. The location is great for access to shopping, the old town, restaurants and Paul Bocuse food market. Situated on a beautiful town square it's also walking distance to the Perrache train station.

Stayed a night and the service and location was top notch. Right beside the hotel is the riverside where there's a quaint mini market of cheeses, saucission, and freshly cooked food. The staff were very friendly and accommodated our request for a late check out at 1330. Rooms were very spacious (though slightly old), bathrooms look recently renovated. Would stay... More

We just stayed three nights as tourists - first time after thirty years ago. We found all services very satisfactory. Clean, quiet, good security, helpful front desk. Breakfast simple and OK. Location is excellent - close to vieux Lyon, retail shops and tourist attractions. Desk provided good info on how to enter the underground public parking garage outside (expensive).
