I have stayed at Hotel des Celestins many times and it is my "go-to" hotel in Lyon! The location is perfect just several blocks from the Saone River and within walking distance, for me, to the Rhone, Perrache train station and a delightful walk along the river to Place de Terreaux and the steps to Croix Rousse!! It is on... More

We were fortunate to book this hotel as the location proved to be excellent. The rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable, but don't expect luxury for these prices. However, the personnel were very helpful, especially to those of us not speaking French, and assisted with restaurant reservations and recommendations as well as taxi reservations. We lucked out on the... More

An older, traditional French hotel that has been beautifully updated. Nice old staircase, but also an elevator. Elevator is small, but certainly big enough for one or two people and luggage. My room had beautiful embroidered drapes, modern lighting, bathroom, and shelves/clothes rack, but then an antique desk and chair. It was a charming room. Mattress was firm. The sheets... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely boutique hotel from 10th to 17th September. Our room was quite small (only enough room for a bed, no chair, fridge, etc) but it was clean and the bed was super comfortable! This more than made up for the lack of space. Because of the layout of the hotel (reception being situated... More

We spent 7 nights at the hotel 10-17th Sept 16. Very central to all attractions, cafes and bars but off the main road so quiet at night. The hotel is more of an apartment style but non the less feels friendly. The room (46) was small but clean and for the time we spent in it, more than acceptable. We... More

Spent a couple of nights in this hotel for a business trip, great location to explore Lyon. Lovely clean rooms. Breakfast good. Only suggestion would be buy new towels as all other linen looks new and towels years old and falling to pieces even though clean.
