“Fantastic Location, Warm and Welcoming Apartment”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is a fantastic location for people wishing to stay in the heart of Vieux Lyon! It is in a very old building (built in the 1300s i think). It is near many historic buildings, one block from the Saone River, a short walk away from the Cathedral, the Metro and the funicular which takes you to the top of the Fourviere Hill where the Bastille is located as well as two ancient Roman sites. There are nearby markets, bakeries, restaurants and a dizzying array of shops. A few blocks away appears to be a district that supports digital animation companies with several shop windows showing cute mechanical animations. Across the river is Place Bellecour which is a short walk away and has one of the best tourist offices we have ever visited.

We stayed in the apartment for three nights and slept on the fold-out bed in the living room which we found to be very comfortable. The apartment was spacious, clean, safe, quiet, well equipped (refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, television, phone and on and on), warm, comfortable and very relaxing. It is on the French first floor (second floor for U.S. folks). Light comes in through one set of windows, so it is a little dim. There wasn't anything about the apartment that we disliked. We thought the apartment reflected the pride of ownership that Steve and Brigitte must have in it. This is definitely a place to which we shall return on our next trip to Lyon.

Liked best: The great location and charm of the apartment.
Liked least: Limited daylight due to the design of this very old building - but really not bad.

“Great location / needs some improvement”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

The location in Vieux Lyon is fantastic. You are in the heart of many of the museums & other attractions. If you stay here, be sure to get instructions on how to access the internet, how to use the TV, music system, and phone. Little things like what type & how much detergent to use in the washing machine.... is dishwasher detergent provided, is there enough TP, etc. The loft sleeping area is a bit cramped, but nice that it is out of the way of the living area. When we arrived the TV worked but internet did not. Fixed now, I guess ... The apartment is accessed from the Temple du Change square via a gate with a code, then you have a key fob to enter the gate to the apartments, then you have a key to open the 3 locks on the door - a bit complicated at first. My concern was with fire safety because there are so many things you have to unlock. The apartment is very dark! It is difficult to know if it is day or night if you have the curtains half closed. Overall a very interesting location but the owners need to dial in the instructions on how to use everything. We stayed for 8 nights & only were provided with 3 bath towels for the 2 of us and one hand towel. There was no bar or hook to hang the hand towel by the sink. But we used the washing machine & there were drying racks provided. Warning about hot water - don't plan on having any on a Sunday. Water apparently is shared by other units.
