Great hotel with excellent service! We arrived a day early (our mistake), and there wasn't room at the hotel. Laurent immediately made arrangements for us to stay at a nearby hotel. The next day we were able to check into the Hotel des Celestins and Laurent was happy to receive us. We were also able to extend our stay with... More

The hotel looks old from the outside and from the entrance, but the rooms are modern and comfortable. Rooms were quiet and good for sleep. The breakfast at the hotel is classic French, the personnel is friendly. The hotel is close to the Place des Jocobins, which usually has a taxi available and close to the restaurants of the rue...

Our first visit to Lyon was special to us, so after browsing Trip Advisor reviews we decided on Hotel des Celestins. And we were not disappointed. From start to finish all went well. Lyon is a large city which meant the hotel was not easy to find without a good map, but once there it was a good choice. The... More

The Hotel des Celestins got our prize for the cleanest and most modern bathroom of the 4 hotels we stayed at in France, and our room (Room #34) as well was immaculate, and quite spacious. Oriana greeted us warmly, and let us store our luggage upon our morning arrival while we went out as our room was being prepared. The... More

We stayed here for one night on a 3-week road-trip through France. The hotel is in the center of Lyons. Parking in the city garage a block away was no problem. Finding the hotel was no problem. Getting to the reception desk was curious as it's upstairs. We came off the elevator and it seemed like we were entering an... More

We went to the hotel from the Train stn. on Bus C9, about 2 blocks away. The proprietor was very nice and upgraded us to a suite since it was available. We liked that room enough to ask for it when we returned a week later. The other staff that works weekend is largely young and less talented than the... More

The room was clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. We don't speak much French, but they were friendly and accommodating and spoke very good English when our French wasn't good enough.
