“Exactly what we needed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

The Hotel des Celestins is a wonderful small hotel. Travelling as a family, we wanted adjoining rooms, and Hotel des Celestins was able to provide them. These court-yard-side rooms were a bit small, but in excellent condition, with top-notch modern bathrooms. The location of Hotel des Celestins is ideal -- just a short walk to the Vieux Lyon section, and with easy access to the metro, and a vast array of restaurants. The very best part of the Hotel des Celestins, though, is the staff. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and accommodating -- we enjoyed every minute of our stay!

We spent 5 nights at the Hotel des Celestins, and enjoyed the helpful and courteous attitude of the staff. Our room was roomy enough, with a nice view of the Archers Str., it was quiet, clean and warm.
Breakfast was plentiful, all in all, it was a lovely experience of France.

Room Tip: We asked for what is called 'a Superior Room', as it was a bit wider than the Standard room...

We stayed at the Hotel des Celestins April 4 and 5, 2014. There were four couples traveling together and the hotel could not have more accommodating. Their breakfast room was made available to us on the evening of the 5th so that we could enjoy a meal of things we had purchased at the nearby open air market that morning. They even allowed us to put our perishables and white wine in their refrigerator, and provided us with tableware, glasses, and napkins. It is only a short walk to the Old Town with all of its sights and sounds, and is convenient to many restaurants, shops, and a bank ATM. If I am fortunate enough to return to Lyon in the future this is where I will stay.

Room Tip: We were in Room 46, which overlooks Rue des Archers. Even with the window open a bit the noise level...

I stayed 3 nights with my wife and our 15 year old daughter. We stayed in the Petit Prince Suite - it was really nice. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful! There is just a warmth and helpfulness with everyone there. They gave advice on activities, restaurant recommendations, taxis, etc. and their advice was spot on. They were dependable and communicated very well in English (we don't speak French). The location is perfect - walking distance to nearly all activities, but also very close to a Metra stop. It is a very good value as well.
I highly recommend it and would certainly stay there again.

We stayed at Hotel des Celestins for two nights. The staff was very friendly and had excellent recommendations for restaurants. The hotel is in an excellent location near Bellecouer. We stayed in the Magnolia suite, 5 flights of stairs. But do not worry, there is an elevator. The room was very comfortable with a nice view of the theater. The breakfast was a traditional french breakfast, very good. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We had a wonderful one night stay in Lyon at Hotel des Celestins. Our room was great, the location fantastic, and the service was superb. The hotel staff booked us dinner at a great Buchon de Lyon and in the morning called a special taxi for us to carry our family, dog and lots of skiis to the airport.

I highly recommend this Hotel for anyone travelling to Lyon.

This hotel is really good value for money, perfectly located, with an amazing (late) breakfast! The only downside is that the rooms are small, but oh well. The service great, the receptionists are all very nice and helpful!
