Simply lovely! It is difficult to describe in words how wonderful our time was in Lyon, staying at the apartment on Rue Lantern. A map does not provide justice demonstrating the apartments location to nearly EVERYTHING in town. A ten-minute walk (or less) in any direction provides you access to the food markets, old town, fabulous restaurants, shopping districts the symphony, multiple theaters and museums, and the metro. Within seconds of the apartment, there are 2 grocery stores, a wine shop, a wonderful bakery and 3 or 4 cafes! The apartment was immaculate and well appointed with every amenity you would need for a long stay (we were there for nearly 3 weeks). We spent our days exploring Lyon, and our evenings sipping wonderful wine, noshing on excellent cheese and olives, and sipping cappuccinos and sharing French ice cream – the apartment was stocked with everything you would expect in your own kitchen. The apartment windows provided excellent opportunities to people watch the activities of the quaint street below, and was very quiet in the evenings. My wife and I traveled with our 3-year-old daughter, but the home was very spacious, and could have easily accommodated our friends and their children as well. Evelyn went out of her way to provide the best experience possible, demonstrating the meaning of true hospitality. She greeted us at the apartment upon our arrival, providing details of the apartment, and nearby resources to make our stay even more enjoyable. She checked in with a day after our arrival to make sure we had everything that we needed and expected, and contacted a taxi service on our behalf on our way out of town. In more than once instance she went out of her way to help accommodate our 3-week stay. We will absolutely return to this apartment, and have referred our friends and family as well! Thank you, Evelyn this trip was a truly memorable experience!
Great apartment with the perfect location to explore Lyon
This was by the best experience I've ever had renting an apartment and I knew this would be my experience as soon as I started corresponding with Evelyne. I planned this trip 3 months in advance and Evelyne is most responsive to all correspondances. Evelyne is the perfect host and she spent time going through the apartment making sure we didn't have any questions. In regards to the apartment, it was better than the pictures and was spacious for the 5 of us traveling together. The location is perfect to explore Lyon and you are near markets, boutiques and bakeries. If you're planning a visit to Lyon, I would highly recommend renting this apartment!

Thank you very much for taking the time to review the apartment. It is my main goal to make my guests happy during their stay at my apartment and to have the best rating in return. As you can see, my efforts were paid back by many great comments from all my previous guests. Unfortunately with the same apartment and the same quality of service, I was not able to make you satisfied. I feel so sorry.
I showed you the 3 bedrooms during your check-in and you chose to sleep in the master bedroom with a large bed and an attached reading room, which is the most appropriate for a couple. But you can always change your mind because the rest of the rooms was entirely and exclusively yours for the whole duration of your stay. I never asked you to use only one bedroom, you rented the whole apartment and you had the full access to all the rooms during your stay. It was certainly a misunderstanding.
I think I have provided enough blankets, pillows and towels for 2 persons and 5 nights as you booked. Of course, it depends on each individual, but you can always request for more if you are in need and I will be happy to provide any necessary items with no additional charge. Unfortunately, I didn't get any request from you even though I sent you few messages during your stay to check if everything was doing fine.
We had a wonderful stay in Lyon at Evelyn's apartment. It was spacious and clean, perfect for our family of four. Evelyn was there to greet us, and accommodated our need to leave luggage while they cleaned. The apartment is well located in central district.
It was my great pleasure to host you and your family. Thank you for your lovely comments and appreciation, but your advice to make it better will be useful to me too!
Awesome apartment in a perfect location
Lyon and Evelyne's apartment will be a regular stop on our annual trips to France.
It is my pleasure to have you and your family as my regular guests!! See you in the near future!
Amazing apartment centrally located in a beautiful city
My family and I have always rented an apartment when visiting France. This is by far the BEST apartment we have ever rented in terms of location, affordability, convenience, and comfort. The apartment was very clean and exactly as described. We were a party of 4 - me, my husband, and 2 teenage boys - and we had more than enough room to spread out. The apartment is spacious and ideally set up with the 2 bedrooms on opposite sides of the apartment, instead of being right next to each other. There is an additional small room adjacent to the master bedroom with a sofa bed that can accommodate a fifth person. If you don't have a fifth person traveling with you, it's a perfect hideaway for reading, watching TV, or just getting away from the kids! Wi-Fi worked perfectly! Lots of storage space! The only drawback to the apartment is that there is only one bathroom, which was challenging at times with 4 people; however, the shower/sink are separate from the toilet so this definitely helped. Not a show stopper at all - I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again. There is a boulangerie with the most amazing baguettes and pastries right across the street and a supermarket half a block away. Restaurants, shopping, museums, sightseeing, and access to public transportation are all within easy walking distance. Finally and most importantly, Evelyne is the most lovely and gracious host! She is accessible, communicative, and helpful. After spending 5 days in Lyon and staying at La Suite Lanterne, we don't see any reason to ever go back to Paris again! Lyon is a beautiful city rich in history with delicious food and friendly people. We look forward to returning to Lyon and will definitely stay at La Suite Lanterne again! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
It was my great pleasure to host you and your family. Thank you very much for recommendation. Hope to see you again!
