The Hotel Des Celestins is in an excellent location in the heart of old town, close to the Information Center, shopping and many restaurants and sights. The staff was very helpful and cheerful. Included breakfast was filling and satisfying. The bed was comfortable and the room clean and quiet although it faced the street. Great value!

Our family and friends were in Lyon for my sister's wedding. We chose to stay at the Hotel Des Celestins for the last 4 nights of our visit based on the excellent reviews as well as the recommendation of Rick Steve in his guide book for France. What impressed me the most was the kindness of the hotel's proprietors as...

I'd have to agree with most of the previous reviewers regarding the great position of this hotel. It is really close to everything we wanted to see. We had a rental car and were able to park directly outside the hotel to take our bags up. We were given a card to the carpark which is under the Theatre at...

We were happy with the Hotel des Celestins but be aware that the hotel starts on the first floor. On arrival, you will need to press the intercom button for the ground floor entry to be opened (there is a lift once inside). Our room, on the Theatre side, was clean, comfortable and quiet, although on the small size and...

We arrived in Lyon late 7.30 pm & were greeted by a lovely young lady who spoke fluent English. We had travelled from Perth so quite tired. Our room was a suite which was on the 3rd floor.

This is a charming hotel with friendly, helpful staff ready to make your stay as pleasant as possible. It is close to the metro and easy walking distance to restaurants and a lot more. Our room was very small but that was reflected in the price so it was acceptable. Our room had shutters so the room could be dark...

This is a wonderfully charming vintage property in the best location in Lyon. You can walk everywhere and the hotel is in the middle of great shopping. We stayed three nights in the Magnolia Suite. Very clean and comfortable with plenty of room. Open the windows and enjoy the magnificent view of the ornate Lyon Theatre. Good restaurants are everywhere...

We booked two rooms at Hotel Celestins and both couples found it to be a great location (check into location of parking before you get there, as traffic can be a bit hairy), and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Claire made our dinner reservations, and generally helped out. We would gladly recommend it.
