We stayed in September 2016 and were delighted with the location! Ulrich was very welcoming and helpful, our room was very clean and we were overall very pleased with our room and the shower. As another reviewer stated - it was fantastic having plenty of space in the bathroom for toiletries in those drawers under the sink! The hotel is... More

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... More

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).

We enjoyed 6 nights in the Celestins. We found the staff so helpful and friendly, the breakfast was fine and the room was kept clean. We would definitely return to this hotel and would thoroughly recommend it.

Hotel des Celestins is in a great location in an area close to beautiful plazas, the river, and the metro. (If you love markets, don't miss the Marche St. Antoine Celestins along the riverfront.) The other great thing about this hotel is the staff. They were always pleasant and were very helpful in making restaurant reservations and helping us book... More

Although this hotel room is rather basic, it is spacious (great for final repack before returning home) and lovely nice touches of fabric. The view to the buildings outside and Theatre were excellent. But the staff really cared about us and made sure everything was to our satisfaction. We would have enjoyed breakfast, but didn't need much and found it... More

We got a "superior" room, and good thing, as it was tiny. I cannot imagine the size of the regular room. Breakfast was good, but at 11 euros, not that good. We paid $142/night. It would have been OK at $100/night. Folks at front desk were very nice and all else was OK, just quite expensive for what you get.
