This nearly last minute tiny-ish hotel was cozy for the night and close as in walking close to sights and eateries . Do not expect a lot by way of amenities and there are more attentive alternatives nearby. I would return again however.

The staff was helpful and accommodating. They recommended an amazing restaurant and allowed us to leave our bags all day while we explored Lyon. The location was in the shopping district and near all the historic sites and walking distance from all the train stations. Good value for the money.

We have stayed at the Hotel des Celestins several times, and I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Lyon! From the smallest room to the Suite Celestins, this wonderful hotel has a room for every need. The hotel is very clean and run by a great staff. I don't remember everyone's names, but Ariana is fantastic! They all speak...

We were in a superior theater side room upstairs facing the street. There was a tiny elevator for bringing your luggage up to the room. The small room was adorably painted and decorated with purples, reds, yellows and browns. There was a small couch, and flat screen TV, and coffee/tea maker. The bathroom was very clean and decent sized with...

Extremely well situated in a quiet street, but at the center of Lyon, the Hotel des Celestins offers nice rooms (the slightly more expensive ones face the street), with French furniture. Good breakfast and very friendly people at the reception, decent prices for Lyon

Lyon is a wonderful city and this little hotel is very French and very pleasant. The entrance isn't anything to write home about - little more than a doorway - but it's situated on a smart little shopping street and is a minute's walk from the beautiful Theatre des Celestins. The building internally has the feel of French old-style apartments,...

My husband and I spent a week at Hotel des Celestins in Lyon in mid-September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room, though small, was comfortable and our completely modernized bathroom was cleverly designed to accommodate three generous drawers under the sink! Perfect and rare! The self-serve breakfast was provided in a very inviting room where we were always greeted...

Perfectly located hotel close to all the sites in Lyon. Mid way between the rivers and a short stroll away from the old city. Staff couldn't have been friendlier. Bedroom fairly small but traditionally French. Excellent breakfast. Quite a special place and good value.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in June and had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Parking is nearby, the breakfasts (not included in the room rate) are good and our room was comfortable (if not spacious). The bill was €820 and we would stay here again (but probably spend a little more and get a larger room).
