Can't beat the location of this lovely old hotel, close to the shopping district, the weekend market along the Saone, plaza Bellacour and much more. Not fancy but comfortable, convenient and quiet, Adequate breakfast but delicious coffee. The service was fabulous though...extremely helpful staff. We had just a one night stay here before going on a river cruise and it...

Modest hotel (3*) in the center of Lyon with great access to the best restaurants and sights. Very helpful staff who spoke multiple languages. Free wi-fi that worked and an excellent breakfast. What's not to like?

Hotel Celestine was located in an excellent area. It is a very short walk to Old Town and everything to see in the Presquille area. It's a block away from Rue de la Republique - the large pedestrian shopping district. It was a very quiet stay. We read reviews that the rooms were small so we upgraded to a supreme...

This lovely hotel is perfectly well located in heart of Lyon in a very nice neighbourhood, 2mn walk from Place Bellecour, 5 from Vieux Lyon. There are many good restaurants, bars and theaters around. Rooms are not especially spacious but really cosy -decorated in french style- and clean.

Hotel Celestins is in the heart of the city close to everything. If you want quaint French style this is the hotel for you. Although our room was small, I had everything we needed. It was cozy, quiet, extremely clean and had a very a comfortable bed. Breakfast was good. The front of house staff went above and beyond to...

In the heart of the city, 20 yards from a lovely small square, with underground parking available within 100 yards. Took 2 rooms, a larger one for us and a smaller but very adequate one for our 20 year old daughter. At 260 euro total, this was decent, considering time and costs to get into and then out of the...

I booked a room for one night at the Hotel des Celestins at the recommendation of a friend. I was not disappointed with my short stay--the staff was more than accommodating to me. They let be use their common area to wait for an evening train that I was scheduled to take. The receptionists were friendly and informative; they provided...

The staff was welcoming and helpful. This is a great location close to the historic and charming Old City, where we spent much of our 2-3 day stay, and close to shopping and restaurants. Yes, room was tiny but this is probably to be expected in a big city like Lyon (4th largest in France?) as in Paris. Breakfast could...

We needed to be in Lyon for a day and a half - to see the great Musee des Beaux Arts there, and the extraordinary Matisse show that they were hosting, and to enjoy walking through Vieux Lyon. The Hotel des Celestine was brilliantly located for walking to the museum and the old parts of Lyon; and the room was...

This nearly last minute tiny-ish hotel was cozy for the night and close as in walking close to sights and eateries . Do not expect a lot by way of amenities and there are more attentive alternatives nearby. I would return again however.
