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. It was huge tastefully furnished & when I looked out of the window there was a beautiful old theatre all lit up...

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 stayed 4 nights in the magnolia suite on the top floor. The room was spacious and welcoming and suitable for our needs (2 adults and 1 child) with one kings size bed and a comfortable sofa bed. The location is terrific, and the staff are very efficient and friendly . We had a rental car and used the car...

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.

We stayed 1 night in Hotel des Celestins in mid August, on our way from Languedoc to Geneva by train. We had booked a number of months earlier to ensure the connected family 'Apartment' at the top of the hotel as we were travelling as a family of 4 with 2 small kids.

We needed one night lodging in Lyon before our flight back to the US. I booked on the recomendation of Rick Steves. The staff was wonderful. The room a little dated but the location was wonderful. I would use this hotel again.

As all of the previous reviews state, the Celestins' location can not be beat. We arrived by car and the public parking garage was right around the corner. Very convenient and easy to find. Typical for small European hotels, the reception was a few floors above ground level and the elevator was big enough for me and the luggage only....

Delighted to have spent 5 nights in this wonderful hotel.. It is not in itself an outstanding property, but the sum of location, top shelf management/staff, service levels and cleanliness made sure we had a very memorable week in Lyon. The staff were a mix of local Lyonnais, South American, Philippines and each provided a level of service beyond expectations...
