Located very close by the Bellecour and Vieux Lyon, the restuarant is on the doorstep of some of the finest restaurants you can find anywhere. The rooms are adequate in size, the decor fresh, the elevator a squeeze if you have more than two suitcases ! The staff were very friendly and most helpful.

Very central - perfect for visiting and shopping. Rooms were very comfortable (if compact) and the front desk staff were very helpful. The breakfast was a bit expensive - but we had breakfast outside in one of the many cafés around the hotel. I would certainly come back to this hotel!

We really enjoyed this small hotel. The atmosphere was quaint and the front desk staff were very friendly. Our room was quite compact but very comfortable and had recently been updated. The room was very quiet. The location was perfect with excellent restaurants nearby. The only negative was the breakfast was overpriced for what you got so just go to... More

Very smart central hotel handy for metro, markets, old town and shopping. Pretty little breakfast room although plenty of cafés nearby. Perfect position for our 2 days sightseeing. Helpful staff on front desk. No kettle in room but that seems normal for France. Tiny fridge big enough for a wine bottle

An excellent small hotel in a very central location. It is just a street away from La Saone and within a short walk of the attractive old Lyon. There are boutique shops every where if you are into shopping and cafés/restaurants in the Place Celestines across the street for a meal or coffee. The staff were always very friendly and... More

This Hotel is right where you want it to be. This was our first trip to Lyon and Hotel des Artistes gave us a wonderful home base for our adventures. Sure the hotel itself is terrific and the breakfasts are excellent, but the real reason to stay here is the Location. It is in the middle of it all. Everything... More

Two nights here before moving to our apartment. Friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Location can't be beat, close to pedestrian street with lots of stores. Plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby and short walk to the river and Place Bellacour. Breakfast is pricey but no comment as we preferred a morning walk and stopped into a cafe for local shoulder...

A charming hotel close to the river, the old town, restaurants, and the shopping area. A surprisingly generous sized room for an older hotel - and helpful staff. Quite reasonable prices too. It wasn't easy when there was a power outage and we had to check out from the fifth floor. A lot of stairs.

Stayed for three nights on a business trip. The staff are very nice & polite. The room was quite large (a double). Shower was very good. The only thing I didn't like was that the floor in the room was very creaky in parts! And also that the bar next door was a bit nosy at times. Breakfast is not... More
