A friend and I stayed in this hotel in September 2015. It is a lovely, charming hotel in an old building. The rooms are large enough, comfortable and clean and the bathroom has a modern touch. Perhaps there were some recent renovations to the rooms. The location was great and the staff was superb and very helpful with anything we... More

my friend and I stayed at the Hotel Celestins in January. This is not a typical hotel! The hotel combines the old world charm with very modern baths and amenities. Yes, the elevator barely holds two people with luggage, but we found that added to the atmosphere, and it was never slow. The cozy breakfast room was small but not... More

Spacious, quiet room with a view toward Theatre des Celestins. The location is central and superb. We were here just before Christmas and paid around €125 per night (breakfast included). Spotless, modern bathroom. Very helpful staff - pointed us to some very good restaurants. The proprietor is a published collector of vintage shoe polish tins. A random interview with him... More

The Hotel des Celestins is situated in an ideal location, in the centre of Lyon with a small walk over the river into the ‘Old Town’ very close to some excellent bars and restaurants, it is the perfect place for me to bring clients from the UK to enjoy everything Lyon has to offer. The Hotels rooms are very comfortable... More

The hotel has a great location and is very individualistic. I can't remember if I noticed our room size when I booked, and if I did whether 12 m2 meant anything to me. I've now learned that it's pretty small and if there are two of you moving around needs co-ordination. Quite contrary to this the bathroom was of a... More

The hotel is in an excellent location and although an old (but charming) building it has all the comfort and facilities you could wish for. The breakfast was really good with plenty of choice.The staff were really lovely and helpful and all spoke perfect english

First of all, I’m really sorry to hear what happened with your taxi’s booking. Actually, the person who booked your taxi made it for 5 p.m instead of 4:30 p.m. My colleague who was there on Sunday called the taxi company as soon as you came at the reception to tell us that the taxi was not waiting for you...

This Hotel is the ideal location for visiting Lyon....Five minute walk to Place Bellecour and its Metro station, 10 minutes to the old city and 10 minute funicular ride to Fourviere Hill. You won't see bacon and eggs for breakfast but there is a more than adequate selection to satisfy your morning appetite. The staff is very pleasant and helpful... More

We stayed in a spacious Superior room on the 5th floor which we found to be very comfortable with a sofa, chairs, and desk and very quiet due to the side street on which the hotel is situated. The room is a welcome relief from the typical chain hotel and was similar to an apartment with no kitchen. The location... More

We were very pleased with Hotel des Celestins. From the moment we arrived the owners and other staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were given some wonderful suggestions of places and things to include in our daily itinerary. The room (#25) was not large, but certainly adequate. My only complaint was that the hairdryer supplied was not adequate, although... More
