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

I LOVE this hotel! The location next to the Place des Celestins and Theatre ideal! A short walk to shopping, restaurants, the metro and across the bridge from the old city. But what is most impressive is the staff--lovely and helpful. Especially Elise! She is amazing!! I highly recommend this hotel.

I loved this hotel! First of all, the location was fantastic. It was right by the the Place des Célestins and the Theater where the Festival of Lights takes place every December. It is right by the river, close to a great farmer's market and great shopping. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious, nicely decorated and have super comfy beds.... More

The hotel is located a few minutes walking distance from the main shopping streets and is a block away as well from the old town, right in the elegant Place des Celestins. Our room was quite large by European standards and the bathroom was clean, large and had two sinks. We were facing the Place with a great view and... More

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
