we stayed in this wonderful, charming hotel for 5 nights and days, we have been treated wonderfuly!
Although the small room, the atmosphere was warm, comfortable bed and very silent.
In a place like lyon that lacks English speakers, it was very nice to have staff that speakes English very well and have good advises to give.

Not the largest hotel room, but the outweighing benefits include 1)the owner is seemingly always present, greeting us by our name for breakfast, and always upbeat and helpful in every way! 2) the staff are the best, hardworking, pleasant, and downright enjoyable in every way!
This hotel's location is perfect! I've stayed in Lyon 3 times now, so I know right where I wanted to be located. Restaurants abound in every direction, and right across the river from the awesome Vieu-Lyon, the historic old city.

Room Tip: We enjoyed overlooking the street from our 4th floor room, and oh the church bells!

This gem of a hotel is well situated in Lyon, close to the shopping district north of the Place Bellecour, and just across the Saone from the charms of Vieux Lyon. I arranged my booking by email and communication was excellent. The staff's welcome on our arrival was most friendly and helpful; and they were consistently warm, friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The breakfast, served in a charming room overlooking the street, was bountiful, the young staff delightful. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others, and intend to stay there again on my next visit to Lyon.

Lovely small hotel with quirky charm. The location is ideal for visiting just about all the sights of Lyon. The service is warm and welcoming. The staff go out of their way to help make the stay at this hotel a comfortable one. The standard size room while small is comfortable and decorated with vintage finds. I have been coming to this hotel over the last four years and have always been happy with the welcome I have received. I find it a lot more personal than some of the other hotels I have stayed in in Lyon.

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our two nights at the Hotel des Celestins. Although our room was tiny, it was big enough, and the location was great for restaurants and touring. The reception staff was very welcoming and helpful, and it seemed as if we were staying with friends. The breakfast offering was lovely as well, being able to cook your own eggs was a nice touch. I would return if I were to be in Lyon again.

My husband and I and our 3 daughters (ages 3, 7, and 12) stayed here during our visit to Lyon in March 2012. The location was excellent, an easy walk everywhere we wanted to go. We stayed in the suite which had a double bed, sofa bed, and baby cot for the youngest. There was plenty of room. The room has been recently upgraded, so the fixtures and bathroom were very nice and modern. Lots of electrical outlets for all our Apple chargers!!! A real bonus in a European hotel. The room included books and a few dvds, even. It was very cozy and felt much more like we were staying in someone's guest room in their home, rather than just a hotel room. The owner was extremely kind and helpful, spoke excellent English. We had plenty to choose from for breakfast, although it was your typical European style PETIT dejeuner of yogurt, pastries, cold cuts, etc. The selection was quite varied, however, and even included hard or soft boiled eggs.
