We only spent a night and didn't have breakfast. The room was a bit small and the accessibility wasn't very easy (push chair, small lift, many doors) but the room was very clean, the location is brilliant and the staff were friendly. The city is very beautiful!

Lovely little hotel, right in the heart of Lyon - within walking distance of key sights and restaurants, really friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast times really convenient. We chose one of the smaller rooms as we were only there for a few days, but families would probably be more comfortable in the larger suites.

Hotel des Celestins was clean, comfortable and centrally located. It was in a charming building and the décor was lovely. The breakfast was generous, delicious and the times it was served were very flexible. The staff were welcoming and friendly, they indulged my bad French and spoke to my partner in perfect English.

Great little hotel located in the heart of Lyon. Short walk (2min) to the place Bellecour, and most of the spots such as Place des Terreaux or Vieux Lyon are within short walking distance. The service is very good with friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are correctly priced. However choose accordingly your room, especially if you have some bulky... More

Celestins is inside an apartment block and all the rooms are clearly old rooms from small flats. Our room was a superior room (16m^2) appointed as a twin and you wouldn't want anything smaller. Only niggle was a variable shower temperature which wasn't enough to complain about. However, it was perfectly functional and a great base for a week in... More

I think the room is not bad. A little bit expensive ,though. I like the location surrounded by lots of different stores. and scenic spots as well. The reception will close at 10 p.m. it's kinda inconvenient. The breakfast is rich and yummy. thanks a lot.

good afternoon, thank you for your valuable comments. We would prefer of course you would fell like saying good rather than not bad but c'est la vie.

This little hotel is wonderfully located in the heart of old lyon - you can walk to upmarket shops and most attractions and are also close to metro and buses. We stayed in a suite which was very reasonably priced and you got a huge room with excellent bed, double couch, MW and little frig, spotless bathroom, the WC in... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night in Lyon on our way from Burgundy to Nice. Hotel des Celestins was in a perfect location and although there was no parking at the hotel, the parking garage was super easy, close and accessible. The area is a great shopping area and you're definitely in the heart of Lyon. The... More
