Hotel des Celestins

Reviewed July 6, 2013

We had a wonderful stay in the suite des Celestins. The three of us had plenty of space including seating area in the charming room. Every one of the staff was friendly and helpful. Great location for the typical tourist sights. The only reason why I did not give a five star rating is the front of the building is under going renovations and the sound of workers and smell of paint became too much at 10 am. The staff did email a warning two months prior to our stay but it was hard to find alternate accommodations with space for three in such a great location so we decided to keep the reservations. Would return especially when renovations are finished.

This was our second visit to Lyon and our second time staying at Hôtel des Célestins. This time we brought our 20-month-old baby! We enjoyed the "Bouillote" room on the top floor. It was very spacious! The staff kindly waited up for our late arrival, and our room was very comfortable with air conditioning. We brought along a travel cot/baby bed. Breakfast was nice, and they even provided a high-chair for our little one. The location is excellent and we wish our stay could've been longer. We highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

We had. BIG room with fireplace, lovely furnishings, fridge, big flat screen TV with DVD player, BOSE radio with iPod dock, books to read , games to play, etc. The room Was on the 5th floor so very street quiet! In a very central location with lots of restaurants & shopping. Ours hosts were super nice! Breakfast was small but very good. Lots of hot coffee & warm milk!!! One of Rick Steves recommended hotels, so we knew it was going to be nice! This room would be great for a family. Also had good A/C!!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room.. Magnolia Room is nice!

A well-organised and friendly 'family-run' type of hotel. Convenient and quiet central location. Rooms small and clean. God bless the air-conditioning! (Not normal in small hotels in our experience). It was also nice that the hotel took the trouble to keep in touch between our booking and eventual arrival. They reminded us of the closing time of reception in the evening and also explained about the scaffolding in front of the hotel during building work - this was useful.
Good language skills and local knowledge among the staff. Excellent value for money.
Lyon is an interesting city to visit. Obviously much smaller than Paris, but plenty to do and to see. Be sure to contact the visitor centre and to buy the Lyon Visitor pass for transport and museums etc. The Gallo-Roman museum not to be missed if you have any interest in history.

Room Tip: It doesn't matter if you choose a room overlooking the street, there is little traffic in the ar...

We stayed at Hotel Celestins on May 30, 2013. The hotel is located in a nice neighborhood in Lyon adjacent to many nice shops and galleries. It was easy walking distance to Vieux Lyon. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The front desk staff spoke fluent English and they were very helpful. The towels were a bit thin but they were clean. Breakfast was basic & OK. The hotel does not have dedicated parking and parking spaces are at a premium in the neighborhood.. If you arrive by car, grab the first space you find in the neighborhood. Otherwise, head to Place Bellecour where there's a large underground public parking facility (about 30 euro for 12+ hours) - a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel.

I stayed at Hotel des Celestins for two nights. The staff was helpful with questions and reservations and the breakfast was a good value for the selection. The best thing about the hotel was the location. It is convenient for walking to attractions and public transport.

The room was clean but the bathroom could use some touch ups. There was some water build up and the bathtub tiles were cracked.

Overall a great value for the staff and location.

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a DVD player which was a treat for us. Location is just off the main road but still quiet. Breakfast is fresh and plentiful.

Would recommend.
