“Perfect location and friendly stuff”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Super central location and very helpful stuff. Breakfast was good, beds comfortable, room was facing the street so a bit noisy but not too much ( I had the superior room with beautiful view of the theater).
Overall a very positive experience.

I stayed here for three nights in May -- and it was perfect in every way. For the price I paid this was great value as it had everything I was looking for.

Situated at the pretty and peaceful Place des Celestins the hotel is within walking distance of many sights including Vieux Lyon, and a short walk to Metro Bellecour ( Line A ). It is further away from Part Dieu station but Lyon's transport system is excellent and getting around from this central hotel was easy.

Place des Celestins has good restaurants and is a nice place to hang out or watch the world go by of an evening. The theater itself has good performances .

This hotel is super efficient and friendly -- from the easy check in and pleasant welcome to its wonderful breakfast, comfortable and up to date rooms . Staff will reserve tours and give you useful ideas for sightseeing, restaurants etc. Nothing is impossible here. The owner and his team have certainly got their act together.

Thank you for a lovely stay --- it will be the same hotel for me the next time I visit Lyon!

Hotel des Celestins is centrally located for easy walking access to all the great historic sites in Lyon as well as the main shopping district,Presqu'île. It's also close to Place Bellecoeur with Metro access. The staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations about local sites & restaurants. Breakfast was wonderful. The hotel & room itself was charming and comfortable.

Room Tip: My room was one of the smallest, which was sized right for a single traveler but would have been too...

In the presqu'île, just beside the square of the Celestins theatre, one block from the Jacobins square, and two blocks from Bellecour, the city's main square, there could not be a better location in Lyon. Ten minutes walk to the metro station Vieux Lyon, it takes around 15 minutes to get to la Fourvière.
The room was really small but nicely decorated with a comfortable bed and good linings. The bathroom had just been updated, good shower and good space. The water temperature was not constant, and amenities where rather on the short side
All the staff was professional and helpful. They offered to make reservations and help with the luggage.
Breakfast buffet from 7:00 to noon is very convenient, with a good variety and selection of things.
I've stayed at several hotels in Lyon in this price range, and this is the best one by far. Good price/quality rapport.

For this price bracket, this hotel will take so,e beating. Small room but bigger rooms are available. Close to most tourist sites. One thing we look for when traveling is clean bathrooms. This hotel scores top points. Great breakfasts as well and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

We stayed 3 nights in Lyon. Hotel des Celestins was in a great location to walk around the city. Our room was small but comfortable. The highlight of this hotel however was the service provided by their staff, they were always friendly, gave us plenty of helpful advice and organised restaurant reservations for us prior to our arrival in Lyon.

Fitting with its location in the center of the peninsula, with easy access to beautiful Lyon, we loved our Celestins Suite and the comfort it afforded. It was quite hot during our stay and the AC allowed us to have restful sleep on the very comfortable bed. All functions worked well and the staff was absolutely terrific in making excellent recommendations for dinner, especially a couple of "bouchons" which we thoroughly enjoyed. The owner greeted his guests most mornings, also provided suggestions for seeing the city and current events that day. We made several day trips; to Annecy, Beaunne, and to Chamonix/Mont Blanc. Parking, although not inexpensive, was very convenient and easy under the square adjacent to the hotel/theater. Overnight was very inexpensive, considering location, and if you parked beyond the nightly rate period, you only paid for the additional daytime hours. We would highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Loved our room with the view outside (to the left) of theater. The suite provided a comfortable pla...
