The situation is perfect if you would like to visit the old parts of Lyon. The hotel is almost hidden in a tiny road near the nice and quiet "Place de Celestines". "Place Bellecour" is only a stone's throw away. On the banks of the Saone near the hotel a market is hold on weekends with all the fresh fruit... More

Clean rooms, friendly staff, quiet though Central. All in all a gem! Near the banks of the Saone and Place Bellecour. A classic small hotel, obviously well run. Lyon in february is Cold, but the feeling inside was of warmth.

Hotel is nice and staff are very pleasant. The free WiFi is slow, almost unusable, sending email from iPhone appears to be blocked by their router which is inexcusable... The toilet in my room is blocked (it happens). Apart from that, if they fix the WiFi I would stay here again.

This is our fourth visit to Artistes. The location is perfect being close to great restaurants, shops and other attractions while being tucked away in the quiet and very beautiful Place de Celestines. Our room facing the square has enough space and light to make it feel inviting. Decor is simple but tasteful and it has very comfortable beds. The... More

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
