I made a quick one night reservation at the Hotel des Celestins just two weeks ago and was so pleased by the hospitality of the proprietor and his staff. Lauren (I hope that's right;) is "old school" when it comes to customer service and meeting the needs of his guests. We arrived a bit early and he was happy to... More

Excellent value for the price. Location allows you to walk to almost everything. Just a few caveats - there is no lobby or public area other than the breakfast room, the internet service is slow and slower, the "we request that you eat breakfast in the hotel" apparently translates into "you are to have breakfast with us." The breakfast is... More

Wonderful little hotel in the heart of Lyon. Our room was a bit small and no view, but it was quiet, clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast was great and it was nice to have a lift. The owners were very helpful and friendly, and would go the extra mile to make sure you have a great stay... More

We spent one night at this hotel and we were treated graciously to say the least. They found us a restaurant in advance of our stay which was excellent and reasonable (Le bouchon des filles). They speak excellent English, assisted us with the directions to park which were extremely easy and helped us navigate the main sites. She even did... More

Great location in the heart of Lyon. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Good buffet breakfast. The room was small, clean and well equipped although a little old fashioned. Overlooking the back of the building, the room had no view but was very quiet. The only problem was the wi-fi connection, which was very slow but I worked in... More

We were a family of four staying for two nights in the Suite Celestins on the fifth floor. The room was lovely, easily big enough for the four of us and the sofa bed was very comfortable for our two children (8 and 6). I loved this hotel - lots of character but also very professionally run by the owner,... More

Located between Le Rhône and La Soane, Hôtel des Célestins is the place to stay in Lyon. My husband, 22 year old son, and I cannot give enough accolades for this wonderful boutique hotel. It all starts with the owner, Laurent. He is a hands-on owner who truly is concerned about each guest. His advice for restaurants was superb and... More

Very friendly and warm and the location is fantastic. The family that runs the hotel when out of their way to make us feel welcome when we arrived early. They were very thoughtful with advice about the city and about timing to the airport.

This is a very charming hotel with comfy beds, a historical building, and a great location in the center of town. However, what really made the place terrific was the staff. The owner was absolutely wonderful -- within a day he knew my preferred breakfast location (by the window), and he seemed genuinely invested in making sure my stay was... More

Great location, about two blocks from metro (Bellcour), tourist office (Place Bellcour), same metro line to major grocery store if you need provisions (three quick stops, Garabaldi) as some rooms are small apartments I understand, two blocks to the Rhone River and bridge to old Lyon (many restaurants), Roman ruins, Cathedral....Place Bellcour also has direct bus route (C5) to Congress...
