Very convenient location, central and close to the old part of the city, yet almost hidden in a small quiet road. The decoration feels modern and warm, with an African influence. Breakfast was good, with superb coffee. The room was small but perfectly adequate, with extra powerful shower, hair drier and full body mirror ! Free wifi was also available.... More

I was staying at this hotel along with my colleague from work and several other participants at a work meeting at a nearby institution. This made the hotel's location handy and practical, while the hotel itself already occupies a very central location. The surroundings is quiet at night and very pleasant. Hotel des Artistes is a non-pretentious classical hotel with... More

...is the reason to stay here. Adjacent to the Célestins Theatre, it's within walking distance to many of Lyon's attractions including the superb outdoor market held on the bank of the river. Staff was helpful and spoke English. Downsides: rooms are quite small and there is no parking (there is an underground lot close by, but it costs ~50 euros... More

We walked into this hotel looking for a room for 3 nights because our previous reservation at another place did not work out. They were very gracious and helpful. Both Marilyn and Fatima at the front desk were unfailingly polite and striving to help. The location of the hotel was excellent. The rooms were clean and of ample size. We... More

We went to Lyon for a romantic weekend and, after some research, followed our intuition to stay at the Hotel des Artistes. It was an advisable decision! The hotel has a great location on the "Presqu'île" peninsula near the river and at a corner of the Célestins square and the theater. The atmosphere is lovely: Numberless bars, cafes, restaurants, shops... More

This is our second time to stay at this hotel and were pleased both times. The rooms are small but nicely appointed and very clean. Also AC is a plus. The staff is the very best for being helpful and friendly. The location is great for walking to most sites. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Booked a classic double room at a price of 180 Euro/night, at our arrival the day price was 144 Euro, which appeared a realistic price considering the small sized room and poor view. Only advantage is the location at the picturesque Place des Celestins.

This is a great wee hotel in a fantastic location in the old part of Lyon. It is close to many restaurants and bars and the river. It is also a short walk to the main shopping area. Lyon is a lovely city and this hotel is a great base from which to explore. Smallest elevator I've ever seen!
