Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This hotel was perfect in so many ways! Friendly and helpful staff, great location, clean and ample sized rooms, delicious breakfast! Plenty of shopping, cafes, and excursions to explore and the staff recommendation for lunch was perfect! We will definitely stay here again.

The hotel is located in a great location: close to the old city and to the central area and all the restaurants and stores. We had no problems at the hotel so I cannot attest to the response time of the stuff. But everyone was very pleasant, including the front desk, cleaning lady and the breakfast stuff. The breakfast was adequate. The room was simple and clean. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows are not as much. For the price you pay, this was a great experience.

This hotel was absolutely perfect for our stay in Lyon! The junior suite was spacious and extremely quiet (thanks to the hotel for fulfilling our request!) and having the parking garage so close made our arrival and departure stress-free. The owner and staff were extremely friendly and helpful, making it a much more personalized experience. Dining and sightseeing suggestions were much appreciated. Hopefully we'll go back to Lyon soon, and if we do, we'll definitely stay at the Hotel Des Célestins - and that's about the best compliment I can think of!

Rooms were totally updated but very small. We wished we had traded up from the Superior room. Breakfast was disappointing as they had American cheese and stale croissants for the weekend. In France French cheese please—small thing I know. The location here is perfect and we just did breakfast out the second day. Good security as you are behind several locks. We would stay here again in Lyon.

The Hotel des Célestins is in an updated older building in the heart of Presqu'isle in a location that provides easy walking access to the major tourist areas of Lyon. It has the feeling of a small, family business, and the proprietors have lovingly maintained the premises and work very hard to make sure that their guests are well looked after. It is exactly the kind of place I try very hard to find as a visit a new city overseas as it provides a real sense of the place I came to visit. The breakfast was quite good, and was served from an earlier hour than is usually the custom in France. For those travelers seeking to find an accommodation that truly enhances ones visit to Lyon (as opposed to chain-run, and business and tourist oriented hotels), I can enthusiastically recommend the Hotel des Celestins.

We stayed at this wonderful and well located property in Lyon for two nights in mid-October. We could not be more pleased with our choice. The rooms themselves are relatively small, in keeping with European standards in many centrally located hotels in the older parts of the city. The rooms were clean, well maintained and the bathrooms were reasonably sized and recently renovated. There are some quirky aspects to the hotel as some other have noted (i.e. entrance and reception area) but these were all fine by us. It was a great spot from which to explore Lyon. Our compliments to the owner and staff who were all so friendly and accommodating.

Don't let the small entrance fool you! It's a wonderful accomodation with a truly helpful and likeable staff. Rooms are fine and have nice views. The breakfast buffet is terrific. And . . . the hotel is centrally located for easy walks to the old town, etc.

Great location in Lyon. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are nice but not fancy. Small, efficient hotel. Breakfast is convenient and a good value but not elaborate. They purchased special items for our gluten-free requirements which was much appreciated. The owner/host was very nice and interesting to talk to. I was prepared to use my limited French skills but everyone spoke English which was helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We loved walking throughout Lyon. Hotel is in a fun location with lots of restaurants within walking distance. Our room was spacious. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom, while small, function was supreme. It was fun to stay in an old building that has been updated. Our breakfast was delicious. I wish I had read the suggestion to book parking with the hotel, we may have saved some money. We parked in the nearby garage under the opera house and rolled our bags one block to the hotel and left the car there for our two days in Lyon. The most difficult part of our trip to Lyon was the traffic getting to the hotel. The hotel and exploring Lyon was wonderful.
