Great location, great owner, great city!

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4, we would definitely stay here again. The owner, Laurent, was extremely responsive to our needs, and super helpful for suggesting great things to do in Lyon. Part of the reason for wanting to stay again is the great owner. And the elevator!

The location is fantastically positioned along the Saône river. There is a beautiful small terrace that overlooks the river, and walking to everything in Vieux Lyon is easy. It was great for watching Bastille Day fireworks set off from the Basilica.

Inside the flat, there are two levels. The first floor is old world, and the second floor is new world. The first floor has that classic French herringbone wood floor, and the kitchen is nicely updated. The espresso machine is great and easy to use, and there is a dishwasher. The bedroom on the first floor is probably more for kids since it has two single beds (perfect for our two young children). The kitchen looks out to the train tracks and the big, historic, wall built of boulders. No identifiable issues with the train tracks. In fact, none of the windows in the flat give anyone the ability to look in at you, and they block out any noise well.

Upstairs is a remodeled loft accessed using a spiral metal staircase. We chose not to carry our 50 lbs (23kg) luggage up this staircase, as it would have been difficult, if not impossible. You could easily carry a small carry-on upstairs though.

There are four remote-controlled windows upstairs that function as vents. Since we stayed in July, there is amazing air off the river that moves through the flat when the downstairs windows and the upstairs windows are open. It was really enjoyable to lounge upstairs in the open sitting area on some leather couches. The upstairs is definitely more suited for adults. For you technophiles, it has a home theater set up with a projector and stereo.

Both full bathrooms were updated and good, no identifiable issues. The downstairs bathroom has a split toilet/shower (toilet in a closet), and upstairs is combined toilet/shower/laundry in one bathroom. Quick hot water was not a problem, and laundry was perfectly adequate.

Thank you, Laurent!

Perfectly appointed in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 teenage boys) were very impressed with Laurent's clean, well appointed and spacious apartment with modern bathrooms and kitchen. It was a perfect location for exploring Lyon but was away from busy crowds. The secure car space was a big bonus. Laurent was a very gracious host who went out of his way to provide information about Lyon, things to do and places to eat (although the particularly well equipped kitchen would have been perfect for preparing meals). Highly recommended.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I loved everything about this apartment. It was kitchen was fully equipped to be able to eat in most nights but the location allowed you to enjoy evenings out but being away from the main squares which is far more suitable and authentic. Really enjoyed our stay.

Thanks Laurent

Wonderful apartment with a extremely nice owner!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was so comfortable, clean, and conveniently located! The owner, Laurent, was extremely nice and accommodating, letting us use his cell phone number to make restaurant reservations before we were able to get a SIM card for our cell phone, and making Christmas and new year's dinner reservations before we arrived. Our family of four (2 adults/2 teens) were very comfortable in the apartment with lots of space. It was walking distance to everywhere and came with a secured parking spot. This apartment is a must stay if you are visiting Lyon! We will be back soon!

Lovely apartment at the edge of Old Town

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples staying for 3 nights, and found the apartment very comfortable and well equipped. Laurent was an excellent host,

meeting us on arrival and staying to give us a lot of great information about the city. He was warm, friendly, and spoke excellent

English! The flat itself is a mix of old France and modern decor, with really nice bathrooms and kitchen. The views from the balcony were gorgeous, and the whole place stayed cool and quiet even during the warm weather. The train runs just behind the building, but we soon were able to sleep through the morning screeching, and it doesn't run at night, so all was fine. We would all recommend this unit to anyone wanting

a good home base in Lyon!

Just stay here!

  • 5 of 5

The four of us really enjoyed our stay at Laurent's amazing apartment. It is very well located to the heart if Old Lyon. The apartment has two full bathrooms and a beautiful view. The kitchen is one of the best equipped kitchens with an excellent coffee maker. Laurent is there to greet you and help you with any questions you may have. Wi-Fi is excellent and the washer and dryer works very well. Parking is just below the building in the back. I would not hesitate to stay here again!
