One night stay in Lyon before a return trip to the US. We needed a room for three, centrally located. The impression from the hotel's web site was that the room we reserved was for up to four, but the second bed was an uncomfortable couch convertible. The morning of our departure, the lift broke down. The staff was helpful (the poor guy had to bring down all our bags from the sixth floor), but an annoyance nonetheless. Good location, quiet. Staff helpful with restaurant recommendations. A used qtip in the bathroom on arrival. Not a bad breakfast in the hotel. Also, staff was helpful allowing my father to print his boarding passes using their computer.

We stayed 4 nights in September. Rue des Archers is off the main street Rue de la Republique. If you get there by train, you should get off at the train station La Perrache, which is only 15 minutes walk to the hotel. The station Part Dieu is the main station in Lyon but it is 2.2 kms from the hotel. We had a superior room on the theater side (comfortable clean room, renovated bathroom,A/C, TV, Tea & Coffee). The location is perfect, right between the Saone and the Rhone rivers, close the Place Bellecour. The staff members were very helpful. Very good value for the money; we would go back again.

We staid 3 nights end of september in room 44, that has a lateral sight on the Celestin theatre and the lovely square in front of it. The host and his staff was very friendly. Breakfast was good with a choise of bread, pastry, bacon, salami, cheese, etc... The hotel makes part of an appartment complex. It is perfectly situated to visit the peninsula between Rhone and Saone where you can find the city hall, the opera, the museum of fine arts and a lof of high end shops. It is also near the Saone and on a footwalk to the old city centre at the opposite border.

Room Tip: 44 is on the theatre side

The Suite Celestin was comfortable, very clean, good beds and facilities (fridge, Bose sound system, safe, hairdryer, TV, tea & coffee). The staff were always helpful and responded quickly to a request for another blanket, or information. And the buffet breakfast was superb! Available until late morning, ideal as we were on holiday and did not want to get up early. We would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for 4 nights in early September 2012 in Apartment Bouillotte. The room was comfortable and has air conditioning, but being right up in the roof space the sun made the room quite warm at times, however the room was bright and attractively decorated. It is however on the 6th floor and the lift stops at the 5th floor. Breakfast is basic but I found it to be more than adequate, with meats, cheeses and the usual cereals and boiled eggs, and the breakfast room is very pleasant with a nice ambiance. The service is superb and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. The location of the hotel for us was also excellent, with plenty of bars, restaurants and brasseries close by and the walk to Old Lyon is not far. I thoroughly enjoyed staying here and will return when next in Lyon.
