We just spent eight days in Lyon at the Hotel des Célestins - a very lovely place. It is conveniently situated in the heart of Presqu'île district of Lyon. It is thus within comfortable walking distance of of many of the major things to see & do, such as Vieux-Lyon and its cathedral, traboules, etc, Place Bellecour, the embankments of... More

My wife and I spent thee nights here in April 2015. The staff was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and making reservations. Lyon is known for its chefs and restaurants and sometimes the smaller restaurants are booked. The staff was great at finding another restaurant or calling the next day to reserve a table at a restaurant they recommended. The... More

The hotel is nice, a bit rundown but undergoing renovation (and monopolizing the small elevator). The rooms clean and roomy, with nice showers (separate toilet in our room). No real place inside to enjoy a drink or comfortably read a book, but lots of places nearby.

This hotel is centrally located for easy accesses for walking to just about all tourist sights. Nice To walk across the river to the "old" section of Lyon, the funicular to the Roman museum and amphitheater. Our room was smallish, clean, looking out towards the theaer with the magnolias.

Me and my girlfriend had great stay at Hotel des Celestins. Very friendly staff and great location ! You can hear the noise from the street (if any), however the price/value is absolutely great ! We strongly also recommend the restaurant Bouchon Café Comptoir Abel which is in walking distance from the hotel.

We loved this hotel: although the rooms are 'smallish', they have everything you could want. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff goes out of their way to ensure you are comfortable and well-informed. The hotel is nicely located in the peninsula. We enjoyed the restaurant that was recommended by the helpful staff.

Rooms are quite cozy by American standards, but average sized by European standards. Showed up a few days early so ended up staying in 2 different rooms, and during my stay saw a few other rooms. Much nicer than other European hotels I have stayed in. The morning breakfasts (assorted fruit, cheeses, breads, tea, coffee) were nice and unlimited.

You can't ask for a better location- parking nearby, restaurants, shopping and tourist attractions all within a few minutes walk. And the staff is excellent- helpful, friendly and efficient! They were happy to communicate with me prior to our arrival, and followed through with arranging and delivering champagne to our room as I requested. We were generously upgraded to the... More
