About Hôtel des Artistes, Lyon

Lyon hotel with free WiFi, short walk from Place Bellecour

Close to Lyon Cathedral

Centrally located on La Presqu'ile - the peninsula between 2 rivers - Hôtel des Artistes is a 5-minute walk from Place Bellecour, a huge pedestrian-only square. You'll be a 7-minute walk from Lyon Cathedral on the other side of the river Saône, over the Bonaparte bridge.

Strolling Vieux Lyon

It's an 8-minute walk to Vieux Lyon, the historic district, where you can stroll the cobblestone streets, buy a baguette from a boulangerie, and visit the unique Musée Miniature et Cinéma. Musée des Beaux-Arts, 15 minutes on foot, showcases art from antiquity to modern times.

Buffet breakfast and art

Guests give high marks to the friendly and helpful staff, and the reception is open 24 hours a day. True to its name, the hotel has paintings in each room, including the dining room, where you can enjoy a breakfast buffet.

Free WiFi, colorful rooms

Decorated in an inviting contemporary style, the 45 smoke-free rooms come with free WiFi and flat-screen TVs. Each floor of the hotel has a different color palette, and most of the rooms have views of nearby Place Célestins, home to the grand Théâtre des Célestins.

OK hotel in splendid area
Excellent location but difficult to find hotel. You need to ask for exact directions beforehand, especially if you come by metro. Old-style furniture, tiny room, newly fittted bathroom. My single didn't have any view. Breakfast was good,at additional cost of 13.50 euros. Staff very helpful. Around you find various restaurants. Magnificent neighborhood in the old city, almost on the bank of the Saone. I had problems with the wi-fi but I think to blame was just my Ipad's overrigurous security. Hotel has elevator.

Great location
The location can't be beat. We walked to several museums churches old Lyon took the finiculars ate salad Lyonaiss and quenelles took a boat ride and thoroughly enjoyed Lyon. The staff was friendly. It was in the 90s for our stay and the air conditioning couldn't keep up. That's our only negative
