This is a charming small hotel with loads of atmosphere and wonderful service. We were right in the heart of Lyon, easily accessible to the best shopping and the old City. Normally, in France, we have breakfast in local cafes, but the breakfasts here were first-rate. A great combination: we felt at home and yet wonderfully 'away.'

The only downside side to our stay was that we were not staying longer. Room and staff absolutely wonderful and we will be back one day as it was not long enough. Lyon is so much nicer than Paris and the location of the hotel is perfect. I had the best run along the river to the park which is... More

Spent two nights here in a small room at the back of the hotel, very quiet and reasonably priced. The website gives a very good description of the rooms available. The bathroom was as sleek and modern as the bedroom was old-fashioned and quaint, not a bad combination for travellers! Didn't try the breakfast. Friendly helpful staff. Wi-Fi was ok,... More

Our stay at the Hotel des Celestins was one of the high points of a recent European trip. The hotel was perfectly located, within walking distance to virtually all of the in-town sites, staffed by an accommodating crew speaking excellent English. We were struck by the friendliness of the staff...even joined at breakfast by the owner telling us about time... More

We enjoyed a one night stay last weekend. The hotel was easy to find, and the parking arrangements in the nearby municipal underground car park worked well, very reasonable for 15 euros/24hrs. The position of the hotel is perfect for walking around the charming old city, close to the river.The hotel is in an old building, starting on the first... More

Enjoyed a 4-night stay. Staff were unusually accommodating and service driven. Breakfast was very adequate and well managed. Rooms were very comfortable and spacious. The only concern was lack of attendant available 10 p.m. to around 7 a.m. They accommodated arrangements for an early morning very reliable taxi to airport. No lobby as such, but given the space challenges of... More

We had a pleasant, 2-night stay. Everything was beautifully clean, the bed was very comfortable (especially the pillows) and breakfast was plentiful, varied and delicious. Our 'basic' room was slightly too small for comfort - with only one chair we couldn't sit together over a glass of wine. The attractive-sounding "courtyard view" turned out to be a blank white wall... More

Arrived at hotel and were a little surprised by tiny nature of room and wall outside. Asked if we could pay for upgrade and one was given free of charge to a room with great view of theatre. Such very friendly, welcoming staff who could not do enough for us. Great situation for hotel. Would recommend.

Had a wonderful time at the Hotel des Celestins during our first trip to Lyon. The location is perfect - very easy to get to all the sights with plenty of restaurants nearby. Next time I'd leave room for shopping as well as there were so many places nearby that I would have loved to go into. The room, though... More

We stayed here in October 2014. We like to walk and the hotel is in a great location to do that. Easy walk to Vieux Lyon, several restaurant pedestrian streets, metro, and perfect window shopping---a lovely neighborhood! L'Amboise restaurant nearby is filled with locals and a nice place for lunch. The ladies at the reception desk were lovely, friendly and... More
