Good points: location; lots of well-regarded restaurants in the vicinity. Bad points: location. If you have a car, there’s (apparently) no on-site parking, and if you’re walking, it’s a fair way to anywhere you might want to go. The road system is incomprehensible, and waving down a taxi is probably a forlorn hope. Positives: spotless; negatives, my room was small,... More

Hotel des Artistes is brilliantly located in the Presqu'Ile area of Lyon between the rivers. It is everything a French 3 star hotel should be but most often isn't. The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable and well appointed. The beds are extremely comfortable and the aircon is effective and near silent. Breakfast is all you would want and served in... More

I spent one night at the hotel and its location is a perfect base for exploring Lyon. There are many attractions within walking distance (I recommend walking up to Notre Dame Basilica and to the roman amphitheatre). Nearby, there are plenty of restaurants and bars both on Rue Merciere and in the old town. The hotel is some distance away... More

We always stay at this hotel when In Lyon. It's a small, comfy, hotel reasonably priced and well positioned . Pay a little extra for a larger room and you will not be disappointed. 24 hour desk service is a plus.

My friend and I LOVED our stay here! Lyon was our last stop in France, and this hotel gave us the best experience. The hotel is very conveniently located in Lyon in quick walking distance from several attractions and shopping. The rooms are exceptionally clean and very comfortable. The concierge was extremely helpful throughout our stay, answering all our questions... More

Located on a small street in the center of Lyon's "peninsula" this hotel offers good value and convenience. Easy access to many tourist sites, public transit, etc. Staff was very pleasant and helpful (English-speaking). Beds comfortable, bathrooms fine. Only complaint is that their air conditioning was barely adequate in very hot weather.

Very, very small room, even by French standards, but it was clean and comfortable and quiet. Walk a half block to the river for great views of the old town, especially at night when the cathedral on top of the hill is beautifully lite. There didn't seem to be a lot of restaurants around the hotel, but again, it's only... More

My son and I really enjoyed this hotel. We lucked out with room facing square with theatre on a night when a circus like act performed out in the square. A lucky treat. Room is spacious and bathroom well appointed. Staff very friendly and professional. A little old world charm in a smaller setting. Good location close to most and... More

Great location in the center of Lyon. Walking distance to hundreds of restaurants, shops, bars, and the Vieux Lyon. Car parking under ground right outside hotel is a bonus. Breakfast in hotel was a bargain at 13.5Eur, with eggs cooked to order, fresh fruits, pastries, cured meats, juices, and coffee, cappuccino, or espresso. The Staff was extremely gracious, helping me... More
