“Great location and wonderful staff.”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

This hotel was in an excellent location a short walk from Place Bellecour. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and took care of all our questions and needs during our stay. One of the biggest conveniences was their laundry service which was efficient and prompt. The rooms were comfortable and clean and having the breakfast on site was a huge convenience. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have been updated and it would be a good idea to specifically ask for those.

My partner and I spent five nights in this hotel over Easter. Sadly we were ill for the whole period of our holiday; however the hotel staff were very nice and helpful when we wanted to spend longer than expected in the room.

The location is superb, a stone's throw from Place Bellecour which is a good starting point for a lot of places to visit. The area is rather chic with a lot of smart expensive shops; we had hoped for a hotel in Vieux Lyon, but were glad we weren't staying there as we found it quite tacky and touristy.

The room (theatre view) was not huge but there were adequate storage options for our large quantity of luggage, and it was kept very clean. This is not a luxury hotel, but quite comfortable as a base.

The breakfast is at an extra cost and was quite nice - recommend Pignol Patisserie down the road.

Room Tip: Superior theatre side rooms are (apparently) more spacious

The small courtyard room was quite adequate, even with our two oversized suitcases. A ground floor elevator eliminated worries of transporting same. No-parking spot right in front policed by hotel staff, making for easy offload of luggage. Beds were extremely comfortable. I would return here without hesitation.

A beautiful hotel with a wonderful friendly staff! Perfect location situated across from the theater in the old town. The best rooms I have stayed in for the price anywhere! The standard rooms are great and the suits are worth the extra splurge. Perfect breakfast consisting of brioche and soft boiled eggs that you can cook to your own liking, meats, cheeses and yogurts. My first night in Lyon I stayed at the number 1 rated budget hotel from tripadvisor in Lyon however the Hotel Celestins was much nicer and worth the extra money for the breakfast alone. I will look forward to staying at this hotel on my next visit to Lyon!

We booked this hotel specifically because of the proximity to the events taking place during the Fete de Lumiere this past December. We chose well. As it turned out the hotel was just down the street from one of the major venues. Imagine opening your hotel window and leaning out to view a spectacle of light and color on the facade of a Beaux Arts building just a few doors away. It was memorable.

Also memorable was the crowd we struggled through to get to our hotel every night!

The staff at this hotel is young and friendly and extremely hospitable and helpful. They did everything possible to make our stay very enjoyable. This is this the kind of place where the staff members learn your name right away.

Our room was quirky and old-fashioned with a mix of antique and modern furniture. The bed was comfortable and the bathoom was clean which is really what was important for this visit.

The hotel looks a bit faded and in need of refreshing, but the terrific staff make up for any deficiencies with the facility.

Breakfast was generous and tasty and not badly priced for this expensive city.

The location is excellent for any time of the year, but was perfect for the Fete. We loved walking around Lyon enjoying the architecture and the two rivers.

Great city, great place to stay! We'd book this hotel again.

We stayed at Hotel des Celestins in Lyon for two nights. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, including arranging for a cab at 4:30am for our early flight. The room and breakfast was great and the hotel is in an ideal location within easy walking distance to the old town, pedestrian row of restaurants and bars, shopping and metro stop. We stayed here in 2009, and highly recommend this hotel for visitors to Lyon

We booked this hotel based on recommendations from TripAdvisor - we couldn't have found a better place to stay. The staff goes out of its way to answer questions, make recommendations, give directions (even down to the bus #) - they just couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Every restaurant they recommended was a winner. The breakfast was a little limited, but much better than many we've seen in small hotels, and just fine for us. The room was pleasant with a nice large bathroom. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel or to go back there for another stay.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a bathtub, be sure to ask for one specifically.
