Hotel des Celestins
Ranked #13 of 196 Hotels in Lyon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This hotel has everything a visitor needs to have for a delightful stay in Lyon. Beautiful rooms with modern bathrooms and the most luxurious bed linens and pillows. A/C made rooms comfortable at night for sleeping. Staff at the desk was warm and welcoming. They assisted us with recommendations and reservations to great restaurants, all within walking distance. Although extra, their breakfast buffet (offers long hours from 7-12 noon) is abundant in their charming breakfast room. The friendly owner visited with us each morning during breakfast and gave additional insights into the activities and events around the city. Upon our departure, the staff arranged our taxi to the train station. I highly recommend Hotel des Celestins for a pleasurable and problem free stay in Lyon.

Stayed at Hotel des Celestins with family, booking relatively late. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout from booking to departure. They arranged interconnecting rooms and collection of room keys as our flight arrive quite late in the evening, beyond closing time for the front desk.

This is not a luxury hotel: our rooms were quite small but that was entirely in character with the hotel - a narrow building with a steep staircase up from the street (compact lift), reception and breakfast room on the first floor, guest rooms accessed through secure doors off the shared staircase. Room facilities were sufficient, decor was stylish / antique, continental breakfast (not included in the room rate) was typically French.

But location is great - lovely district, restaurants and central attractions in walking distance, trams / Metro at hand for those that prefer not to walk. Fabulous Sunday markets along the riverside.

We liked Lyon a lot and Hotel des Celestins is a place to which we would return.

Room Tip: Rooms with views to street probably limited in number - check when booking if this is a priority

We stayed in the Hotel des Celestins for two nights in July 2014. The hotel is in an excellent location right in the center of the city within easy walking distance of all of the major sites. The staff are very helpful and provided us with recommendations for outstanding places to eat and even made bookings for us. Our room was small, but very clean with a very modern and well equipped bathroom. The breakfast was quite good at a typical price for a hotel in France. There is also secure parking close to the hotel.

We found this hotel to be an excellent value for a short stay in the heart of Lyon.

We stayed at Hotel des Celestins for 2 nights in early May 2014, arriving very tired at about 9:00 pm after having travelled by air and train from the west coast of North America without having had any sleep for about 40 hours. We were made to feel welcome by the desk clerk and had a very good breakfast at the hotel the next morning after a good night's sleep.

Laurent greeted us at breakfast on the morning after our first night and offered to assist us in any way he could. And he certainly did! He recommended a good Bouchon where we dined that night, and he arranged an early taxi for us for the following morning as we had to catch an early train to Nice. He also met us on the street in front of the hotel at about 6:30 am to make sure the taxi came (he would have driven us to Lyon Part-Dieu had it not shown up) and the desk clerk brought us coffee on the street while we waited for the taxi, which arrived on time. Talk about service!

The hotel room was clean and comfortable, and the location was great - a block from the Place Bellecour and in the heart of Lyon's shopping district. We would recommend this hotel without reservation.

Room Tip: Rooms are relatively small. We had a larger "Superior Room" which was just big enough for...

what a pleasure to stay in a hotel where real art is championed. Warm & superb decor in the perfect central Lyon location. Superb staff, friendly and accommodating, supremely clean and updated rooms. Safe, and easy.

Room Tip: My room looked onto rue des archers - could see the theatre & very pleasant.

If you’re looking for a Hotel in Lyon, this is one you should really consider. Its location is a real plus; we found that nearly everything was within walking distance. But, that probably is not your only consideration, so let me add this. The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff was terrific, answering questions, setting up restaurant reservations, and just chatting. The owner was great, very considerate to his guests, friendly and easy going. He and his staff truly made you feel welcome. We ate breakfast 3 times and found it to be very satisfying and well worth the cost. It was also nice that they served breakfast until noon, allowing us to start our day at a nice pace; after all we were on vacation. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel no matter what brings you to Lyon.
