My husband and I have s wonderful 2 nights in this walk up apartment. Jean Marie was a great host! He met us at the apartment, carried our luggage upstairs, provided us with eggs, cake, water, and wine and walked us through the area map for places to explore. Would stay again! Merci!
Beautiful Vieux Lyon
This apartment is in a fantastic location in Vieux Lyon. It is right across the street from St George’s so you’ll be able to enjoy the church bells throughout the day. A mere 1/2 mile from the metro stop and the heart of Vieux Lyon, St Jean’s. A footbridge will take you across the river to the Presqu’île and the Place Bellecour, again within 1/2 mile. The location is absolutely perfect. Jean-Marie met us as we arrived and gave us some great recommendations on restaurants. We tried several and all were magnifique! He also provided some basics to get us started like milk, eggs and even a bottle of wine. While the apartment has a/c, we were there in the middle of a heat wave. Jean-Marie got a second fan and we found that opening the windows with the fans was completely refreshing as there was always a nice breeze off the river. One note - this is an apartment on the 4th floor with no elevator. So, it is a hike to get up to the apartment. But once there, you will have magnificent views of Vieux Lyon. Highly recommend.
Great location in vieux Lyon.
Jean Marie was delightful, he gave us all the information we needed to really enjoy this lovely city. Walking around is easy. Public transport is quite simple to use as well. Apartment is clean and tidy.
Everything was terrific in the apartment and it made hanging out in Lyon easy — whether you’re into the food scene, some shopping for fashion or visiting old churches. Parking is a nightmare, though; if you are staying more than 2 days, you need to leave the car at a garage about a mile away.
On the plus side was location, accuracy of the online listing and a great reception from Jean Marie. On the other hand, the apartment was small and the seven flights of steps were a challenge at the end of a day’s walking. However, I have to concede that information was available in the Property Details online. We had a super week.
Fantastic location in Vieux Lyon
You can’t beat the location of this funky flat in Vieux Lyon. Easy walk to anywhere in the historic area and access to a walking bridge if you want to head over to the Presqu’île. If you want to venture into areas further away, the Metro stop is just a couple of blocks down the street. View from the apartment is terrific and the church bells sound like they are in the room with you. If stairs frighten you this may not be for you. Otherwise it is a great bargain. The host, Jean-Marie, couldn’t have been more welcoming. Met us at the location and was kind enough to carry our large bags up the five flights. Water, wine, OJ, eggs, bread - all waiting for us. And he stuck around for a few minutes to familiarize us to the apartment and provided us with a map and quick orientation to the city. A great place to visit. Big thumbs up. We’d definitely stay there again.
